      • What percentage of our greenhouse gases come from the food system?
      • What can we do to be more eco-friendly in our eating habits?
      • How much of the food we produce gets wasted? 
      • Why is it important to “build the soil”
      • What does “Best by” actually mean?
      • How does our industrial agricultural system affect the climate?
      • How much plastic actually gets recycled?

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
