Have you heard of Meatless Monday? A lot of people around the world are dedicated to reducing their meat intake by nixing it one day per week in order to save money, the earth, and their waistlines.
Ever since hosting a meal made entirely of locally sourced products, I couldn't help feeling like I should be making more of an effort to eat locally grown foods all the time. I considered switching over to a strictly locally grown diet, but knew that for me, it wasn't entirely realistic. Which brings us back to Meatless Monday. What if we committed to eating local one day per week and called it Sustainable Sunday?
The challenge: join us in Sustainable Sunday each week by preparing/eating a meal made entirely with locally sourced ingredients or buy sharing where you found locally sourced products.
The fun: let's all share what we come up with for Sustainable Sunday! Use this hashtag: #sustainablesunday if you'd like to participate via twitter. Please share recipes, tips, and pictures, I'd love to see what you all come up with. I will also feature you/your blog if you'd like to submit a recipe or ideas to me. Email: gwenedwards82 [at] gmail.com. Let's do this!
Each week I'll be sharing my sustainable recipes as well as sharing where I found my ingredients so you can cook right along with me. Click here to view past Sustainable Sunday recipes and posts.
