    How does/can practicing gratitude keep you centered and motivated to work for a better world?

    Being grateful for everything you have and or receive can make you look at everything differently and learn to live life a bit differently than others that can also help the environment.

    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    All this money can be used for any charities , Any bills,etc. Instead of wasting large amount if money on food that will be thrown out, it's better to save money and just buy the amount of food that will be used to prepare meals.

    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    Some foods that I would like to preserve would be veggies,beans,Fruits and anything that is left over and can be pickled to be eaten later instead of wasting large amounts of foods.

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

    North america may eat more meat than any other places because most restaurants or supermarkets do not include vegan meals. There is a majority of restaurants with meat and not many vegan grocery stores or restaurants. Maybe making more vegan restaurants around neighborhoods may make people wanna eat in vegan places and possible change their eating habits into a healthier one.

    How do you practice self care?

    jesenia rodriguez 10/05/2018 11:25 AM
    I practice self care by trying to drink as much water as possible. I try to eat either vegetables or fruits everyday at least once a day. If i am not eating fruits i am drinking it in a milkshake. Gaining enough protein in your body is very important.
