    For the EcoChallenge I have been inspecting our garbage cans each day and food packaging waste is by far our #1 issue.  This experience has inspired me to cook more from scratch.  A win for the environment and a win for our health.

    Cleared another area today. Found items to donate and organized it so that we won’t accidentally buy items we already own.

    I've been inventorying our family's garbage each evening.  I can't believe the amount of food packaging garbage that we create.  This weekend I am going to make more of an effort to purchase food that isn't overly packaged.  It's going to mean more in meal prep time, but well worth the effort.
