Shop Locally

The average bite of food in the United States travels 1,300 miles before it is consumed, according to the Food Awareness Project.  Decrease the distance (and environmental toll) by supporting your farmers’ market and checking labels at the grocery store.  Produce grown close to home is more likely to be in season and riper when picked.

Food for THOUGHT

Choose organic.  Organic food contains no hormones or antibiotics and is produced without pesticides and fertilizers.  Additionally, the farming practices ensure healthy soil.  Organic can be more expensive.  If you can’t always work it into your budget, be selective.  There’s a list of fruits and veggies ranked by pesticide level at ewg.org/foodnews.

Scarves year round

Living in Southern California is great, but yes we still have chilly weather sometimes.  The quintessential accessory to have with you at all times is a light weight scarf/shawl.  I ran across the perfect $10 scarf at Fess-Parker Hotel gift shop.  They have an amazing selection of colors.  The gift selection is nice and very reasonable.
