One thing I’ve realized is that as I get older, I focus more on local movements and actions than larger movements. I’m not sure if it’s age or being a Mom, but letter writing and other things don’t seem as important anymore. I want to get involved on a local level about the things I feel passionate about. I really believe small steps add up! That’s why I was excited to hear about the $5 Challenge.
What is the $5 challenge? It’s just signing up for this simple pledge:
Today, I pledge to share a fresh, healthy meal that costs less than $5 — because slow food shouldn’t have to cost more than fast food.
So simple, and yet what a difference we could make if we all pledged to do this! Most of the meals I make meet this challenge, so that makes me pretty happy. I know I feel healthier and happier when I eat whole foods versus the overly-processed foods that are meant to save you time and money, but in all honesty don’t really.
I hope some of you will take the challenge as well!
