I also happen to love blogging and exploring new interests and being all cliché hipster, and This Green Life is my latest project.

I have been pescetarian (a brand of vegetarian that eats seafood and animal by-products) for something like 2 1/2 years. I came from a heavily  meat-eating family -- hunters who like to make venison stew and have a pot roast every Sunday -- but I was never a huge fan of meat myself. It sat a little too heavy in the stomach, it tasted fatty, and it just didn't make my body feel good. So, in the summer of 2008, I decided to give pescetarianism a try, and I committed to trying it for one semester of college (at the time,  I was an English undergrad student at BYU). LOVED IT.

So I stuck with it.

I guess you could say that's how my little interest in eating right and being kind to the earth began. As I got more and more into vegetarianism/pescetarianism, I did more research, which has led me over the past few years to further interests in gardening, eating "kind" foods, and preserving the planet.

So I did what I do -- I started a blog. And here it is.

This blog will be a conglomeration of:

  • benefits of vegetarian or whole foods diets
  • easy recipes
  • gardening strategies
  • ways to reduce our carbon footprint
  • spotlights on green shopping methods
  • links to other green websites
  • and whatever related interests I develop in the meantime!
Keep in mind, I am no expert here -- just your average gal who's figuring it all out as she goes along!

Aimez la terre!
