1. The old stand-by: eat a healthier diet in 2010. This is one the whole family is working on together this year (although some are not really happy about it). We are trying to rid our diet of artificial everything as best we can this year. We’ve started by following some rules on “Whole Foods”, which is basically trying to eat fresh foods with little to no processing. Processed foods should contain no chemical additives. So much for the kids’ favorites! We’ve also joined a sustainable garden (we’ll get a share of the produce plus we get to help out with planting, weeding and harvesting as time allows).
2. Continue to green-up our existence. I’ve already been working on this. One of the hardest areas for me right now is the shower. It’s so hard to get out of the nice warm shower when you know a cold bathroom is waiting. Especially since we have the thermostat set at 66 degrees.
