Green Your Diet

Return to fresh, flavorful foods. Simple ways to green your diet.

Veggies and Fruit
Try to buy the organic version of fruits and vegetables.

Stress? Relax with a Glass of Organic Wine
Organic wines are now available, as well as great local wines from coast to coast. Red wine has an important antioxidant.

The Grandma Test
How can you tell if a food is green? Ask yourself, “Would my grandmother (or for some of us, great-grandmother) recognize this thing as actual food?"

Eat a Local Meal
The average food item travels over 1,500 miles to get to our plates — that's a lot of pollution and waste created to make dinner.

Go with the Grain
Grains! Delicious, healthful and comforting? The grain group includes wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal and barley. They’re naturally low in fat and high in vitamins.

  1. Hi, I just read your post on Greener People. I'm happy that you're taking a look at what products are green.

    Maybe I can help you help other people be green: I run a non-profit forum where the reviews create specific and customized product scores so that people can tell the difference between green products and greenwashing. Your opinions and research would be more than welcome:

    Thanks and let me know if you have any questions! (You can reach me at
