    Reluctant To Grow Food?  Start Here

    Do You Like Your Organic Veggies Cheap? 

    I know a lot of people who’d love to grow their own food, but strongly adhere to the following misperceptions:

    • Growing food is hard
    • I don’t have time
    • I have a black thumb
    • I don’t know what to grow
    • I don’t have space

    Let me just say, that I’m a firm believer that anyone can grow food. Yes, I mean you with the black thumb. You with no time. You who hates to get dirt under your nails. And I’m also a firm believer that once you have luck growing the easy vegetables, you’ll want to live in overalls and quit your day job to farm 24-7. Well, maybe that’s hyperbole, but I’m still betting you’ll love it. 

    For reluctant gardeners (or kid-focused fun), I recommend growing the following three vegetables first.

    Rain Barrels of Fun

    Investing in a rain barrel is a great way to repurpose rainwater in and around your home. You can use rainwater to:

    Gifting The World To a Better Place 

    Gift baskets are all the rage these days, and why not? It’s much easier to pick a theme, purchase smaller gifts, add some basket filler and you’re done. While a great idea, it can be challenging to come up with creative baskets that haven’t been done before…or at least that haven’t been overdone. Let’s be honest, the “family movie night basket” has seen its day. Everyone is streaming movies these days, and if they aren’t, they are watching Blue Ray’s. Much more pricey.

    A Thoughtful BPA-Free Gesture


    If you are reading this from a smart phone or computer screen, chances are you are in a better place in life than so many others.  

    In 2014, almost 47 million people lived in poverty, while another 48 million Americans lived in food-insecure households. These families and children rely on the support and food donations from organizations such as the Feeding America Network. This non-profit organization is a network of food banks nationwide and serves 46.5 million people each year, of which 12 million are children. What does this have to do with Savvy's monthly challenge?

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
