    I have been in a lot better mood since I started sleeping more! I have to wake up early for work and getting more sleep has really benefited me.

    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    Michael Pollan states that "it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor." What are your thoughts on this?

    I love cooking at home and avoiding processed foods! I have learned a few more recipes and great easy meals to make for myself through this challenge.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

    I have bought a couple of great reusable bottles that actually hold ice a lot better than a plastic bottle. It keeps my drinks during work and class cold! I will be making a permanent change.
