    Food Smart Seafood Choices
    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    I found the California advisory for coastal fish. The main dangers with fish are mercury (presumably all heavy metals) and PCBs. interestingly, the graphic covers up the allowed number of servings...

    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    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?

    We are keeping a really close eye on budget and spending.  We are taking lunches to work and school.  Making one big meal on Sunday, that does not involve meat!

    It's amazing how much junk mail and how many catalogs I get. Pretty soon this will kick into high season, with the holidays (read: high spending) approaching. I am very grateful for the new habit of not letting paper waste accumulate so much, but separating it daily and taking it to the recycle bin. (Older piles to clean up still, though.)

    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    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?

    As I clean up, I notice that the vast majority is RECYCLABLE material suitable for PAPER processing, probably 60-70% (newspapers - yes, I'm old-fashioned. Magazines, catalogs, etc. I like print!). Consumer packaging, too.

    Thankful for the recent rain!  We turned off the sprinklers for at least a week to reduce water consumption.  Also , collected rain water for all potted plants. 🌧 🌱 💙
