It’s becoming more and more evident that our food and the way we eat directly effects the environment. Green Heroes Vandana Shiva and Leilani Munter have both contributed to the cause, creating different campaigns to encourage others to eat green and support sustainable eating habits. With Meatless March trending all over the social sphere, we wanted to give you some great tips on trying out the month-long project or even committing to Meatless Mondays. Meatless March sets the goal of taking on a local, vegetarian diet for the full month. Not only is this an experiment to try and eat like a vegetarian, this is also a means of helping our environment. Did you know that the United Nations found that 40% more greenhouse gas emissions come from industrial livestock than from all of the world’s cars, planes, ships, and trains combined? So we challenge you to participate in Meatless March for one day, one week, or even the whole month!

Here are some great tips and guidelines on becoming a vegetarian, and why it’s so important, from our friends at WWF Canada: http://community.wwf.ca/ActionDetail.cfm?ActionId=60

And here are some yummy recipe ideas from our pals at Green Living to make the vegetarian diet a little bit more “flavorful”: http://www.greenlivingonline.com/article/hearty-and-vegetarian-comfort-food

As our Green Hero Vandana says, “The funny thing is you can eat your way to conservation”.

Happy eating!

In Season 1 of Green Heroes™ TV, we brought you some of the most influential and remarkable individuals like Rob Stewart. Now we have a delicious treat coming your way in April when we launch our Second Season of Green Heroes™ TV, with an episode featuring renowned Chef Jamie Kennedy!

While shooting our episode with Jamie, we encountered the beautiful Ravine Vineyard located in St. Davids in the Niagara region. In addition to the stunning landscape and wonderful scenery, their website also boasts that “in a gesture of respect for the land and the family (who owned the property), and to keep it free from imminent urban development, we built the Ravine Vineyard Estate Winery”. Now that’s something we can get on board with!

Be sure to check out their upcoming First Annual Vintage Vault Tasting, with house made charcuterie while spinning vintage vinyl records (how cool!) http://ravinevineyard.com/?p=1890 And stay tuned for Jamie’s upcoming episode on TVO!
