Earth Day started in 1970 as a way to bring attention to the nation about the importance of environmental protection. Today it’s celebrated around the world and has inspired environmental awareness and countless acts of environmental consciousness worldwide.
Today we celebrate Earth Day, but you can keep the celebration going all year, every day. Eating a plant-based diet, even just one day a week, can make a positive impact on the environment (not to mention your health). Think about participating in Meatless Monday, a nationwide initiative to eat meat-free meals just one day a week.
Try to eat foods that are grown locally and in season. When you buy locally-grown foods, there is less transportation needed to get it from the farm to your table -- which means less fuel used, less pollution in the air, supporting local businesses... you get the idea!
This recipe is the perfect example of a seasonal recipe that’s delicious and easy to make. Your family will love it and it’s a great way to celebrate Earth Day!
Celebrate Earth Day with your family!
