Happy Earth Day to you! Today is a great day to think about what you do to help the environment, conserve energy, and what you can improve on. I know I am far from perfect but I am always looking for ways to improve. I try to always recycle, reuse items such as shopping bags, containers, donate my clothing (to my family in Poland) and try to buy local produce. However, I do admit I drive way too much and can be very wasteful at home with bottles, jars, etc. So my goal is to ride my bike more when I am getting something in the neighborhood (plus that will have a dual benefit on my physique) and recycle wayyy more!
One of my inspirations for going green is my friend Kelly. She was my college college roommate at UCONN and is one of my bridesmaids in my wedding! She is a vegan and has an awesome blog called Party Like a Vegan. Even if you are not vegan or vegetarian, her recipes are awesome because she uses natural products that are way more healthy than processed and other foods. The other day she posted this AMAZING recipe for Vegan peanut butter eggs so instead of sharing one of my recipes, I am going to direct you to her recipe! 🙂 ENJOY!
