You have total control over what you bring into your home, and what you choose to do there. Small changes can have a big impact on your family’s health and happiness and on the food industry, agriculture, and marketing practices.
Here’s what you can do
- Eat at home.
- Eat together – create a special place to sit down together. Taking back our family dinners will help us learn how to find and prepare real food quickly and simply, teach our children how to connect, and build security, safety, and social skills, meal after meal, day after day.
- Reclaim your kitchen – throw out foods with high-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fats, and sugars or fat as the first or second ingredient on the label. Fill your kitchen with real, fresh, whole, local foods whenever possible. Join a community-supported agricultural network to get a cheaper supply of fresh vegetables, or shop at nearby farmers’ markets.
- Plant a garden – if space is an issue, create a small garden in a box on your roof or porch.
- Conserve, compost, and recycle.
