Milk: What kind we buy, and why

The Earthling's Handbook

I love saving money, yet I routinely buy half-gallon cartons of milk that cost twice as much as the cheapest milk in the supermarket!  Furthermore, two half-gallon paper cartons cost more than one gallon plastic jug, for the same amount of milk!  What am I thinking?!

Several years ago, Daniel and I decided that milk that is healthier for us and the Earth is worth more money.  The extra expense was hard to swallow at first, but the fact is that my overall thrifty shopping habits lead us to spend less on groceries than the average American family of our size, even with the expensive milk.  Also, we don’t use as much fluid milk as many American families–it’s mostly for cereal and coffee in our house, and it’s unusual (though hardly against the rules) for any of us to drink a whole glass of milk.  We get most of…

Trick AND Treat Those Taste Buds!


Happy Halloween!!!!

I am not a big candy person, but this time of year I could seriously nosh on some nerds, Reese’s peanut butter cups and tiny candy bars to an unhealthy degree.  The only holiday that is more candy tempting is Easter…blasted Reese’s Eggs.

I am not eating much more than veggies and protein supplements right now so, I don’t have any good healthy versions of sweets for you, but I have discovered how to trick and treat my taste buds!

Something I have learned on this journey is that I often crave a flavor combination, not necessarily the actual food the taste is associated with.  For example, my pizza craving is not so much about the crust or even the cheese.  Think about it.  What are the primary sources of flavor with pizza…the sauce and the toppings.  So, when I discovered cauliflower crust pizza, I had my craving quenched.  I barely use cheese…

Weekend Hike – Halloween (and Frankenstorm) Edition

Have you ever been to Bull Run? Tweet or Facebook your photos to us and share your story!

My Meandering Trail

Last Saturday afternoon, I went back to Bull Run for a hike (off I-66 exit 40 in Virginia). I know I said I was going to lay off for the sake of my poor toe, but I wore my hiking boots this time instead of my trail runners…so so so, um, ya know, get off my back. I was there only two weeks ago, but with Frankenstorm supposedly bearing down on the east coast, I figured I shouldn’t go too far out. After all, I had to make sure I left enough time in my day to panic like my fellow DC metro-ers.

When it comes down to it, I might as well have been in a completely different place. In two weeks’ time, the landscape has become blanketed in a vibrant yellow hue, and leaves have fallen en masse. If you’re looking for a perfect place to crunch…
