As most people know Facebook has been a great learning tool for connecting to some great sources that fit your lifestyle. Earthetarian is a Facebook page that has been gaining a significant amount of members since it began and there is a reason why! Organic recipes, news and fun facts are offered on this page that can help reshape your eating habits one day at a time (good for us slow learners!). Because I know Lisa, the owner of this page, I tracked her down between her three jobs, hiking excursions, food shopping trips and basically jam-packed life to answer some questions for some of us who are just learning how to cook- let alone go 100% natural.
What inspired you to start your Earthetarian page?
A year ago, the name Monsanto or the words GMO, BPA and organic meant nothing to me. I recently started delving deeper into research on the food industry's goods and evils in hopes of learning why America and the world has become so reliant on fast food and unhealthy eating and living. I had seen other food blogs and thought, what better way to reach out to the public than a personal food blog? This is where my inspiration was born.
I have a healthy love affair with cooking, eating, gardening and photography, so creating a food and gardening blog felt like a natural fit. My goal with Earthetarian is to inspire people to make a healthy lifestyle change and to sustain it. It's easy to do a weight loss program or diet, but people have a tendency to go right back to their comfort zone once the program is finished. I want to show people that being healthy is a lifestyle change that eventually becomes an incredibly fun and addictive habit. It doesn't have to be pulling teeth, and it doesn't have to be expensive. Buying locally and organically helps the local farmers and economy, and cooking and growing at home is healthy, rewarding, fun, and saves a lot of money! I am passionate about people and their well-being and I believe that positive energy spreads throughout the Universe so you have to start somewhere. If I can reach out to at least one person a day who is inspired by my blog and decides to make a positive lifestyle change, I will feel fulfilled. It's a start.
