My Earth Day Contribution... A Little Late, But Better than Never



Here is a series of photos showing my Earth Day contribution.

These are the seeds I have started for my vegetable garden. So far I have green onions, Swiss chard, beets, cucumbers and mesclun lettuce mix. I am still waiting for numerous other seeds to sprout including garlic, pumpkins, tomatoes and more.

Happy (Belated) Earth Day!

Remember Clean Eating is Green Eating (less packaging)!

Cheers,
Tosca

p.s. I'm in Belleville today celebrating my daughter's 18th (!!!) birthday. They grow up soooo fast. Yummy brunch here I come.

We planted our garden today, too! We did tomatoes, red bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, green beans, sugar snap peas & spinach. I can't wait for them to grow!

Your inspiring me to go back to my roots (literally) and start a vegetable garden of my own! Grew up that way but got away from it.

Tosca, Is I am so tired of feeling bloated so often. I have always eaten well and for the last two plus years eaten clean. Can you recommend anything. Probiotics, whatever? I have tried some before and I am not sure if they worked or not. I have not been tested for allergies to milk or gluten, or any grains but i do feel i am sensitive to those and try not to eat them to often or in large quantities. I do usually eat spelt bread and i do eat a fair share of oats. i have reduced my fruit but still think i get my quota. If I can get personal, I do have bowel movements 2 to 3 times per day. Always on the softer side, but sometimes very stringy. I think my colon has a difficult time processing things ( just an intuitive feeling i get, but i am so in tune with my body). Help!! i know you have stated you have a sensitive stomach too. I eat so clean and sometimes I get so bloated that I look pregnant!! thank you Tosca i know I am not alone on this.

Congratulations on the Article in First Magazine! The article was very well written and many kudos to Tosca and Eating Clean. I was happy to see the 2 beautiful ladies from the success stories on your webpage made the mag. Eating clean and feeling much better these days! Thank you for all your tweets, blogs and books and keeping us all motivated to be better and do more!

Toaca any good ideas on eating clean on hiking trips. One can not just eat trail mix or on will get fat!!

Mesclun lettuce and spinach grow so well, with such little effort that I can't believe we buy it in the stores !!

Thanks for all the inspiration! I am working on starting my box gardens. I would love to try beets.

How big is your garden? I've always wanted to have one, but I don't think it will be possible until we live at a house with a bigger backyard!
