We believe there is a way to eat that is good for your body, but also healthy for the planet. In our society it takes effort to step away from the convenience foods, supposed time-saving boxes, bags & cans, and regular trips to restaurants. Some of us compost, other’s reduce waste, many of us recycle all because we know that our small planet will not hold our disposable lifestyle forever.
While we are in need of an energy makeover and national sweeping efforts to take care of our environment, there is one thing we all do 2, 3 or more times per day: EAT. Some of our food comes wrapped and packaged in disposable products with easy to use plastic utensils. Much of the fresh food is coated in pesticides and fertilizers that harm. While the food products are loaded with chemicals and additives to allow our food’s shelf life to extend well beyond our own needs and colorings to make it more appetizing to consume.
Because we eat everyday we have incredible consumer power to make choices that step away from this food that is so destructive. Dining on sustainable, seasonal fare is a more nutritious, flavorful, chemical-free way to enjoy food and better yet it can be much more delicious. Through Lilly’s Table we encourage you to join us as we cook and eat our way to a better planet.
