Monday Green Note

Earlier in August the following Green Note ran in the Prairie UU Order of Service.  The concept is not only healthy and good for the earth, but financially wise as well.  Show of hands -- who thinks it sounds like it was written by Michael Pollan?

The UN estimates that if Americans ate one
plant-based meal per week – just one meal – the
environmental impact would be equivalent to taking 5
million cars off the road.
This is a favorite plant-based dish of mine, and when served alongside scrambled eggs is delightful.

Summer Cherry Tomato Salad:

  • ripe cherry tomatoes (best when immediately picked)
  • fresh mozzarella
  •  diced celery
  • diced cucumber
  • chopped basil (best when just snipped off your own plant)
  • salt and pepper
  • drizzle with olive oil, add a 1/2 teaspoon of red wine vinegar

Enjoy, and have a great frugal week!
