There are indeed several ways that we can enjoy the benefits of waste management. For many years, a critical way of getting needed materials to the many disadvantaged populations is recycling. It continues to give an excellent way in which people gets food, clothing, building materials, and other things that they desperately need.

When you go to Barcelona, or anywhere in Spain, you will find many tapas bars on offer, which offer many different types of “tapas” which are basically appetizers or snacks. http://www.voyagearticles.com/barcelona-travel-guide/
the baked fresh goat cheese reminded her of those nasty goats she had to milk when staying in the French Alps over the past summer (“Elles sont chiantes” she explained), the beef sirloin with chimichurri sauce, Argentinian-style (that she liked best), the solomillo pork loin with sautéed mushrooms and gorgonzola sauce, and the profiteroles that our waiter insisted was made with “fresh” vanilla ice-cream from the ice-cream parlor next door. #love #food #sex #erotic #kiss #tapas

Although we’re slowly heeding the messages that Mother Nature has been sending us, our modern way of living continues to cost us all a hefty price. Environmental disturbances, including pollution and large carbon footprints, overuse of our energy resources, and the depletion of our water sources remain of major concerns.

In terms of farming, there is still some confusion or mystery surrounding the differences between organic and sustainable foods. While there are very distinct differences, they are not well known. Furthermore, this confusion has led some to refer to organic and sustainable as one and the same.

If you’re like me, you buy and go through loads of yogurt (Greek, for me) very quickly. I use it for soups, smoothies, desserts, and as a simple snack. Before I know it, the container is empty and I’m adding it to the pile of existing containers stored in my cupboard.

Potatoes. Apples. Mushrooms. Almonds. You might think that what all of these have in common are healthy benefits or essential vitamins. They certainly fit into what most of us would consider the “healthy” category. But what you might not realize is that each of these foods contains toxic elements and, if prepared incorrectly, could cause serious damage...

What is homesteading, exactly? I had not heard of the concept until recently, either. Simply put, homesteading is a lifestyle choice, in which one’s goal is to be completely self-sustaining. (Basically, all of the ideas featured in our Sustainable Saturdays posts, magnified and combined!)

Ginger oil helps in treating and preventing dandruff and is known to stimulate hair growth while boosting circulation. To make ginger oil at home, grate ginger root and place it inside a muslin cloth. Squeeze out the juice and mix 1 teaspoon of the fresh ginger juice into one fourth cup of sesame oil. Mix the oil and juice together and massage it into your scalp and leave it for 30 minutes before rinsing it out with a mild shampoo.

Here is a guide to my favorite seasonal vegetables for fall and winter...

A few weeks ago, I shared some of the many benefits of forgoing meat a few days per week. But many people may be wondering what they can eat instead of meat to ensure they get enough protein. Or perhaps they just want to chow down on a meat-like food. The good news is that there are constantly new vegetarian products being developed, and endless ways to use them in daily meals. Here are some of the classic meat substitutes...
