Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day fat-free bean burgers with a low carbon footprint

When you eat like it matters, you can help heal Mother Earth. A whopping 18% of our greenhouse gases come from raising animals for food. Over 8% of the water we use goes to livestock. Who do you think eats all that alfalfa that's sucking up the water in California? Meatless Monday was a great start, but you can shrink your carbon footprint, your budget, and even your waistline by eating the Cook for Good way every day. Start with my easy Fat-Free Bean Burgers recipe.

Why cook the Wildly Affordable Organic way?

Go green for $5 a day or less with mostly organic or sustainably raised ingredients. Or focus on cost to save even more! Either way, you'll probably be spending less than the food-stamp allowance for someone with no other means. We can afford to eat wonderful food that is good for our bodies and for our planet. Vote with your fork for a better world. (Don't forget to vote with your vote, too!)
