Starting the year off death? Possibly...

We are Taylor and Gabe. Starting Saturday, January 8th we will attempt, (what can only be described as suicide to some) to whip our eating habits into shape. For 30 days we will challenge our way of life by attempting to decrease our carbon footprint, eat healthier and gain knowledge that we can carry with us forever (without killing eachother in the process). A large part of this project is the food we consume. As many of you might know, Americans have some of the worst eating habits in the world. Our goal is to permanently change our way of consuming food. How, you might ask? Our plan is to only support local growers by strictly buying from farmers markets (yes Gabe that means no meat!).
The second portion of this challenge is to decrease our carbon foot print by decreasing our contribution to trash and pollution. We will not use paper products such as plates, cups, napkins or silverware (yes we will continue using toilet paper). Further more we will do without our car for those 30 days.

We are so excited to begin this month long journey! Wish us luck :)

  1. Looks so yummy and colorful!! Used to do a similar meal with eggplant, bell peppers, zucchini and yellow onion. A little olive oil and S&P and you're good to go. When you get the treat of meat. I sometimes broil some italian sausages, slice 'em and throw those in the mix.

    If you haven't played around with eggplant, yet. Do! Its great in sandwiches and stuff :)
