It’s been a pretty crazy few weeks for me, with one huge event to organise at work, plus the worlds most disorganised house move ever! But I’ve settled in to my brand new little home with more resolutions that the last 5 New Years rolled in to one! Aside from doing daily yoga and meditation, and eating less junk food, I’m also going to be ditching the car and walking the 40 minutes to work everyday day. Watch this space..
Over the last few weeks – whilst hearing what green living means to a whole variety of people – I have noticed a recurring theme. Whilst inspiration for living more sustainably ranges from animal ethics, environmental concern and existing family values; everyone seems to agree there are real health and well being benefits too.
Many believe that eating fresh, seasonal and organic food is not only supporting good farming practices; but also keeps our bodies sustainable too. And often these first steps of thinking about what you buy and consume in the food aisle, starts to influence other shopping habits too.
This motivation for a healthier, happier body is something this weeks interviewee – the founder of Lucy Be Coconut Oil – is very passionate about, and she’s an aspiring example of how eating fresh, organic food can be one of the best medicines around!Continue reading Your Green Life: Lucy Bee→
Happy Wednesday lazy green people! we are so close to the weekend I can smell it…
I just wanted to do a quick post to share some big news…. that I am officially in love with my new juicer! This was an early birthday present and I have been road testing it for the last month; before I announced my official verdict on juicing. I was a little curious, yet dubious, about how practical it was; and more importantly, how long it would take before my interest waned from the effort of juicing AND cleaning it out!

Last month in my Lazy Organic Eating blog I briefly touched upon the concept of eating seasonally. And in my traditional Trudi style, I forgot to explore this further and define what I actually meant. In fact, I realised that I have been talking about eating seasonally for months without really knowing why myself; let alone what’s actually in season!!
Like an enthusiastic keen bean who publicly announces their intention to run a marathon, and instantly regrets it; I told everyone I’d gone Vegan on the first day of deciding myself. Way to set yourself up for a fall! Here followed daily inquisitions into my nutritional intake, challenges on my personal ethics and persistent questions like: “But if we didn’t eat beef or cheese, wouldn’t cows be extinct?” In hindsight, I probably should have given myself some time to gather my thoughts on my ethics and beliefs, before opening myself up for public judgement.
But then again, I could never have predicted that people would get so darn defensive about what I (not them, I might add…) chose to consume!
