eco-friendly, green industry, organic

We all see the thousands of new green products that are put out each year. And companies claim it is all in the name of saving the planet and creating a better environment, but this is just not true. Many of these products are not necessities, which goes back to the unsustainable lifestyle of "overconsumption." We cannot continue to keep buying stuff, green or not, because it looks cool and is the new fad. However, companies trying to increase their profits each year do not want people to exercise self-control because it would limit consumer purchases and cut into their bottom lines.

Outdoor Excursion

camping, outdoors, nature, hiking

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful fall camping trip. We did have to cut it a night short due to rain, but otherwise we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the outdoors. We did two hikes; one was a 6 mile hike and the other was a 3.5 mile hike. We got to see lots of chipmunks, squirrels and raccoons. Although the raccoons were a little bit of a surprise. It was approximately 7:30pm at night and we were enjoying dinner by the fire and then all of a sudden three raccoons start approaching us. It was like they were expecting us to have dinner ready for them, too.

If you are like me, you may crave those salty, crunchy potato chips every once and while. Unfortunately these tasty treats are not the most nutritious and can really pack in the calories. But never fear. I have found a delicious substitute for you. They are kale chips - salty, crunchy and nutritious. In Kale you will get lots of Vitamins A and C, Calcium and Iron. In potato chips...not so much. Here is a link to a simple recipe ENJOY!
