    I am interested in foraging mostly as a means of survival in a bad situation, although I hope, with enough preparedness, it would never happen. I do sometimes worry that our farming capabilities will decline in output as a result of climate change, and knowing how to grow and find food will become essential.

    Many hikes in my area have fantastic views. There is one in particular, where I will go to the end of a mesa, and I can see for miles around in all directions. It really helps me connect with nature, and realize how I am part of the cycle of life.

    Addicted to sugar? Yes. I actually failed on this challenge. I can blame a couple days on my daughter's birthday cake, but overall this is a huge problem for me to break.

    I really do enjoy hiking, just being out in nature, but my workouts tend to focus on the gym, indoors. I should hike more.

    We have become disconnected from the processes used to create and dispose of the things we buy. We don't see the huge pit mines, or leveled forests, or pig waste reservoirs, or landfills, or exhaust emitted from our elaborate global transportation system. Seeing what trash I produced in three weeks has served to make me aware of better choices...

    Most of my purchases these past few weeks have been for food. My daughter had a birthday, so some was gifts for her. There were a couple other household things I needed and replaced, but overall nothing that I would say was unnecessary. I will continue to strive to be a mindful consumer.

    What concerns me most about how we are affecting the planet? I've come to the realization that it isn't any one thing, like plastic or greenhouse gasses, but rather how we have seriously put this entire globe off kilter. Everything has been affected by humans in one way or another. The extinction rate is increasing, apparently there are half as...

    What we eat has a huge impact on our health, and we've known this for a long time. "An apple a day keeps the doctor away," and all that. So yes, I agree. If we are buying food anyway, it may as well be healthy food so we don't end up with long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

    More and more, small business operations are being swallowed by big businesses. What used to be hundreds or thousands of small farmers or ranchers has been replaced with a few enormous companies who focus on their bottom line. I think food sovereignty will help not only bring small farmers back into business, but also make our food and the land...

    I still have difficulty with figuring out how to shift away from a meat-centric culture. The good news is there is a lot of focus on meat reduction among environmentalists, and I see headlines routinely that emphasize the benefits (health-wise and environmentally) of eating less meat. I'll be honest, my nephrologist recommended I shift from...
