Episode SummaryIn this episode, I build our shared vocabulary of sustainable food and explain the term holistic managed. Language is power. And when we know the terminology we can partner with techniques to grow-wellbeing simply by reaching for these food ingredients when we see them at the market or start asking for them. Having an understanding of the agricultural methods that grow well-being is key to saving water because 1) 70% of water globally is used to grow food, and 2) eating is something we must do every day. If we change how and what we eat, collectively it will make waves of change.Visit the Cobblestone Valley Farms Website, a holistic managed farm I mention in this episode.Links and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Find gifts designed to serve well-being at the Eat Less Water Shop.Get a copy of the EAT LESS WATER bookCelebrate summer with DRY FARM WINE.

Episode SummaryNow imagine you are at the grocery store in the milk section. You have many choices from organic to non-organic, and non-dairy alternatives. Which do you reach for? Whether you are drinking milk from dairy cows or the dairy alternative, like soy, almond, or oat, the action tip for today’s episode is to reach for the organic option always. Even better, reach for the organic option that comes from small-scale dairy farmers like one of my favorite brands, Organic Valley. Right before I recorded this podcast episode, I looked up the price for a half gallon of conventional or non-organic milk and the organic variety, specifically Organic Valley. The price difference was $2.00. And the difference in price between conventional milk and organic soy milk was 0.75.What you gain in that .75 cents to 2.00 more you pay for organic milk is huge. At the individual level, paying the extra money means your glass of milk will not contain, trace chemicals from pesticides. Nor will you be drinking down growth hormones or antibiotics, both practices are restricted in organic certified food.But why does that matter? In this episode, I will examine a few of the differences (there are many others I will discuss in future episodes.) I mention the following study in the episode.

Episode SummaryLast week I introduced the concept of meal planning. In that episode, I said, Some of you already have a meal planning, practice, which is great. And some of you don't have a meal planning practice. Once you start meal planning, you're going to wonder what took you so long.  But what does it take to build a new habit?  At its essence, activism is getting oneself to do things differently, to create new habits. But why do some habits stick and others fail? What are the blocks that stand in the way?In this episode, I explore these questions with Michele Nevarez, author of the book “Beyond Emotional intelligence: A Guide to Accessing Your Full Potential. She coaches clients around the world on this very topic with her team of Beyond Emotional Intelligence (BEI) certified coaches.During this interview, Michele, an expert on EI and its practical application, will answer these and other questions and walk us through the proven action steps she designed to help us move from where we are to where we want to be. She offers us simple exercises to take out the “head trash,” so we can turn our hope of a better environment into action.In the interview, we use food and specifically meal planning as the example, but the exercises she provides can be used for any habit we want to build from eating more sustainably, to meal planning, and beyond.To learn more about the work Michele does at her company Beyond Emotional Intelligence, and sign up for her newsletter, visit www.beyondei.inc .Links and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Find gifts designed to serve well-being at the Eat Less Water Shop.Get a copy of the EAT LESS WATER bookCelebrate summer with DRY FARM WINE.

Episode Summary:According to government stats, we eat a lot of bread, about 55 loaves of bread a year per person. In the average lifetime, those loaves of bread add up to about 87,000 slices in a lifetime. How much water are we eating in all those loaves? If the water footprint of bread, that is how much water it takes to grow the grain to make one slice is 11 gallons and we multiply it by 87,000 slices, that is 957,000 gallons of fresh water we will each eat. This total doesn’t include the additional 5,000 hot dog rolls and 12,000 hamburgers the average person will eat over a lifetime taking the water footprint total past a million gallons of fresh water.In this episode, I share three steps you can implement today to reduce your bread water footprint while still enjoying your daily bread. Links and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Find gifts designed to serve well-being at the Eat Less Water Shop.Get a copy of the EAT LESS WATER bookCelebrate summer with DRY FARM WINE.

Episode Summary:During the first 8-weeks of the HOW to EAT LESS WATER podcast I’ve shared many simple ideas to turn our shared hope for a cleaner more sustainable environment into action. But the foundation of all the action steps offered thus far is MEAL PLANNING. This one action step in many ways is the container or storage bin where all the action tips are organized.In the book I’m writing now, HOW TO EAT LESS WATER IN 30 DAYS, meal planning is the action tip introduced on DAY 1 and embedded throughout.If you already meal plan that's great, you have a good habit formed. But in today’s podcast episode I offer some approaches that you may not already implement into your weekly meal planning.For those of you who don't have a meal planning practice, you're going to soon wonder what took you so long. Because when you start to meal plan at the beginning of your week, three things automatically happen:I WASTE LESS FOODI EAT HEALTHIERCOOKING FEELS LIGHTER, EVEN JOYFULI invite you to share with me what you're doing in your kitchen and how you approach your meal planning to give me more ideas that I can share on future podcast episodes at info@eatlesswater.com.When we merge our influence we can change the world one meal (plan) at a time.Be resplendent,FlorenciaLinks and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Join me for a LIVE VIRTUAL PIZZA PARTY on July 30 or August 1.

Episode SummaryRecently I sent my teenage son, Joaquin to pick up flour tortillas for dinner. He handed me the package and said without prompting, this is the only brand that didn’t have palm oil. It has become second nature to look for this ingredient for all of us in the family. But it hasn’t always been the case. I didn’t connect the dots between palm oil, and global water systems until I did the research for the chocolate chapter in my book Eat Less Water.When I was immersed in the research for cacao farming it brought me to tears. Palm plantations are devastating not only to water systems, but to groups of people who are displaced, to animals now facing extinction, and to our global climate.Palm oil is the most popular vegetable oil on the planet because it's cheap. The cheap oil can be found in over half the items found in any grocery store from chocolate to toothpaste.The true cost of the popular cheap oil is best explained through the story of peatlands and forests.If you don't know what peatlands are I didn't know until I did the research for my chapter. Peatlands are essentially layers of soggy plant debris. They act as freshwater reservoirs like wetlands. Formed over 10,000 years, these layers of plant material can reach depths of 70 feet.These saturated land filters the water for animals and humans living downstream and are critical in regulating global climate. Peatlands hold 30% of the world's carbon. More than all the forests combined.Over the ages, peatlands absorbed 1.2 trillion, tons of carbon dioxide. And to get a sense of what that looks like. It is the amount emitted from 34,000 coal plants in a year.But as I explain in this episode, illegal fires are downing these virgin forests draining the peatlands of freshwater to make way for the orderly rows of palm trees that now engulf the tropic landscape. This is especially true in Indonesia, the largest producer of palm. The 18,000 islands that comprise this nation are lush in biodiversity and host to one of the most extensive peatlands in the world. But 2 million palm plantations grow on former peatlands in Indonesia and the number grows as the palm oil keeps flowing to our favorite food brands.The damage to the peatlands to clear the terrain for palm is irreversible. When peatlands are drained and burned, carbon, the leading contributor to climate change is released into the atmosphere.Peatlands are necessary, not cheap palm oil. But as I explain in this episode, there are actions we can take during our next trip to the store to turn the tide.Take a listen and send me any questions or ideas you implement in your kitchen to Eat Less Water by replying to this email.When we merge our influence we can change the world one meal at a time.Be resplendent,FlorenciaLinks and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Join me for a LIVE VIRTUAL PIZZA PARTY on July 30 or August 1.

Episode SummaryEating and shopping for organic food is an integral component to eating less water and growing well-being for the planet. BUT quite frankly, the one thing we can all do regardless of our food budgets is to waste less food. That one action would make waves in water systems around the world.We throw away so much food at every stop of the food chain. The statistic I've come across is we collectively throw away between 30 to 50% of all food. And food waste is not a United States problem. These totals are mirrored around the world.While plenty of the food waste happens at the farm, grocery store, restaurants and cafeterias (think school cafeteria), amen of us don’t have direct influence over the policies in these spaces. I can tell you where we have complete control to implement strategies to waste less food— our own kitchens.And focusing on places we can control feels empowering. The anxiety tied to the massive problems we face in our environment creeps in when the focus is on things we have little control over.In today’s podcast I share tips and strategies to waste less food in your kitchen beginning today.Take a listen and send me other ideas you implement in your kitchen.When we merge our influence we can change the world one meal at a time.Be resplendent,FlorenciaLinks and resources:Download FREE the TEN TIPS to EAT LESS WATER SUMMER PARTY PLANNING GUIDE for all the tips, steps, and info on how to celebrate like a kitchen activist with your friends and family.Join me for a LIVE VIRTUAL PIZZA PARTY on July 30 or August 1.

At my coffee grinding, and brewing is a morning ritual. How often do we really think about what's served in our mugs? And did you know coffee is the third, most heavily sprayed crop in the world behind cotton and corn with chemicals so toxic they are banned for use in the United States. But in areas where coffee is grown outside Hawaii, these chemicals are widely used and likely served in your cup of Joe.Coffee needs high elevation, a temperate climate, and upwards of 60 inches of rain to flourish. The state of Hawaii is the only place in the United States that meets all of those requirements. This is why when I wrote about coffee in my book, EAT LESS WATER, I found myself on the dormant volcano of the Mauna Kea and met with Hillary and Eric who are the owners of the Hawaiian Cloud Forest Coffee Farm. They were a phenomenal introduction on coffee growing, coffee roasting, and set out a blueprint of how to be stewards of the forest.  Coffee is an understory tree.  Just like the cacao bean scientists and farmers realize if they remove the coffee tree out from under the shade, the yield would increase. But when coffee is grown as its intended, which means under the shade of another tree the quality is better, the fruit is bigger, lusher and tastier.  And the tree is better positioned to naturally defend itself against pests. During this episode you will learn why coffee is a powerful place we can grow our forests by simply choosing to support coffee brands who, like Hawaiian Cloud Forest Coffee are stewards of the forest and actively working to replant the forest canopy with indigenous trees.This week's action tips:Buy organic coffee beans.Skip the K-Cup. The number of mostly non-recyclable Single K-Cups sold in one year can wrap around the earth equator more than 12 times. Find and support shade grown coffee.When you purchase coffee grown outside the U.S., look for fair trade certified coffee.Links and resources:Download the 10 TIPS to EAT LESS WATER and SAVE WATER during your SUMMER GATHERINGSFollow me on Instagram:@eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwaterFor more about me and what I do, check out my website.Receive 15% off your first purchase at the Eat Less Water ShopOrder your bag of Hawaiian Cloud Forest Coffee.If you need ideas for wine to serve at your next party of gathering  that save water, build soil, and are delicious you can't go wrong with any of the following:Biodynamic wineDryfarmwine.com Use this link at receive an extra bottle for 1 cent  with your first orderMake sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesda

How many people do you have in your family who have difficulty regulating blood sugar levels, reduced immunity, and struggle with chronic ailments such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.?Our declining collective health comes more into focus when you examine these numbers. During the turn of the last century the average American ate 5 lbs sugar today the average is 190 lbs a year In 1900 each  American consumed 4 lbs of oils and fat each year on average, today we eat 74.1 lb a  yearIn 1900 Americans ate on average 2 lbs of cheese and 140 lbs of meat, today the average is 30 lbs cheese and 210 lbs meat per yearEach American drinks on average 53 gallons of soft drinks each year compared to 0 in 1900.And our nutrient density had decreased by 40-60 percent. According to the USDA nutritional composition tables, fruits and vegetables have fewer vitamins and mineral than they did in 1975. Broccoli has lost 54% of its calcium. Iron levels are down 60% in cauliflower and apples, bananas have 485 less phosphorus. These are overall decline on every fruit and vegetable.What is happening to our human health is mirrored in the health of the planet too. Soil health has diminished on farms across America because of pesticide sprays and petroleum based fertilizers.The good news, is we hold the solution. You and I can reverse the SAD food trends beginning in our kitchen starting NOW.It requires us to return to the best practices from our grandmothers and great grandmothers kitchens, like cooking from scratch and using organic seasonal and local ingredients from the farmers market, grocery store, or your own garden. To achieve this means we need to slow down, to be intentional with the shopping, planning, and preparation of our food. We are attracted to fast food because it mirrors a fast lifestyle. A lifestyle that offers little time to spend time choosing our fruit and vegetables at the farmers market, little time to map out our meals each week, and forget cooking from scratch because we are collectively too tired by the end of the day.This week's action tip:Reflect on your own diet. What have you been putting in your mouth? Does it serve you? Does it serve the planet? The answer is always the same…either yes to both or no to both because we are each tiny replicas of this planet, each born with 70% water just like the planet earth.Institute one new action tip  you commit too. Maybe it means you start going to the farmers' market before the grocery store. Maybe that means you will sit down and plan your upcoming weeks meals, or that means you will cook from scratch more times than you do now. The goal is not perfection but to do more than what you do now.  Small changes all add up and will be reflected in your health and the health of the planet.Links and resources:COOK WITH ME.

I don’t need much reason to celebrate chocolate I always have bars of chocolate in my pantry ready for an afternoon nibble. When my kids, who are now teenagers,  were babies, I held their tiny hands within mine and rubbed them together like they held the wooden handle of a molinillo, a chocolate whisk. We sang the same Spanish nursery rhyme my mother sang with me, cho-co-late cho-co-late bate bate chocolate. I think it's safe to say we each hold our own precious chocolate story. It is one of those foods that that has the power to incite emotion, and to elevate an ordinary moment, especially when you take a square of chocolate, place it on your tongue, resist the urge to chew and instead let the flavors wash over your taste buds. It reminds me of another song I love by the Wood Brothers, the chorus goes,  If I die young at least I got some chocolate on my tongue. The chocolate that finds its way to my tongue is organic, direct traded, and made with NO palm oil. Which leads me nicely to the action tips. When you buy chocolate, whether it is in a bar form, or powder for hot chocolate or baking support the brands who are The chocolate I purchase is:1. organic, 2. direct trade or fair trade, or bean to bar, 3. contains NO PALM OILLinks and resources:Download the 10 TIPS to EAT LESS WATER and SAVE WATER during your SUMMER GATHERINGSFollow me on Instagram:@eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwaterFor more about me and what I do, check out my website.Receive 15% off your first purchase at the Eat Less Water ShopIf you need ideas for wine to serve at your next party of gathering  that save water, build soil, and are delicious you can't go wrong with any of the following:Biodynamic wineDryfarmwine.com Use this link at receive an extra bottle for 1 cent  with your first orderMake sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesday.And, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a rating and review.

Many of us are setting out on road trips this summer. I’m getting ready for my own. I will travel 900 miles stretching from where I sit now in Oxnard, California to Santa Fe New Mexico. It takes about 15 hours and three meals to get there. The roads that lead us from here to there regardless of where are dotted with fast food joints. They serve food that is not the best for water, you can even argue fast food chains represent some of the worst foods for water, as the food relies on big corporate farms whose concern is not to grow wellbeing but to grow big yields and big profits. But there you are on your road trip, starving, with few options. Believe me I’ve been there. And will likely find myself there again. But when I do just a little planning on the front end, I don’t find myself stranded along the road with nothing good to eat. In this episode I will share action tips to feed yourself while being kind to my body and the planet.Offer ideas to pack food from homeTo find better options for fast food and restaurants.Treat the grocery store along the way as a fast food joint.The difference in my body when I eat either all of my food from home or a combination of both home food and out versus just eating whatever is close to the gas station where we stop is night and day.When you eat less water the rewards keep flowing.Links and resources:Download the 10 TIPS to EAT LESS WATER and SAVE WATER during your SUMMER GATHERINGSFollow me on Instagram:@eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwaterFor more about me and what I do, check out my website.Receive 15% off your first purchase at the Eat Less Water ShopIf you need ideas for wine to serve at your next party of gathering  that save water, build soil, and are delicious you can't go wrong with any of the following:Biodynamic wineDryfarmwine.com Use this link at receive an extra bottle free with your first orderTablas CreekBeckmanMake sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesday.And, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a rating and review.

Consider this one glass of white wine is equivalent to 29 gallons of water. And one glass of red wine is 32 gallons of water.  If you look at the entire wine region area in the U S wine grapes sipped a little over 1 trillion gallons of water from wells and rivers in one year alone. Climate change is going to increase the need for irrigation. We're already beginning to see that as summers become longer and hotter, and the winters become colder.  One study found  worldwide viticulture acreage will not be suitable for wine production by 2050. In California, where most of our grape-growing occurs in the United States. It's predicted wine grapes will decrease between 50-63% by 2050. The good news is there are ways to farm wine grapes that use less water and are more climate resilient. I learned this when I spent the day with Mike Benzinger, who was my tour guide and the founder of Benzinger family wines. On this episode you will:  Gain action tips to buy your next bottle of wineYou will learn why long root systems matter to save waterYou will get a simple introduction to biodynamic wineYou will gain simple strategies to find biodynamic wine Biodynamic wineDryfarmwine.com Use this link at receive an extra bottle free with your first orderTablas CreekBeckman Links and resources:Receive 15% off your next purchase at the EAT LESS WATER shop and the 10 TIPS to EAT LESS WATER and SAVE WATER during your SUMMER GATHERINGSFollow me on Instagram: @eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwaterFor more about me and what I do, check out my website. Make sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesday. If you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a rating and review.

  Build meals on the food you already have in your kitchen.  This seems like a no-brainer, but I know that unless I'm intentional about building my meals based around the things that I have, I don't do it.  Create a night every week for a catch-all recipe, a recipe to use up all the must eats in your refrigerator, especially the produce drawer. Every culture has these recipes like quiche, tacos, and pizza. These meal ideas are a great place to use the food that you have leftover in the refrigerator to waste less food, water, and $$.  In this podcast I share with you how I built a pizza night based on the ingredients I had on hand for a spontaneous dinner party. I also share with you how I approach cheese, which has a water footprint of 414 gallons per pound on my pizza.  Links and resources: Receive 15% off your next purchase at the EAT LESS WATER shop and the 10 TIPS to EAT LESS WATER and SAVE WATER during your SUMMER GATHERINGSFollow me on Instagram: @eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwaterFor more about me and what I do, check out my website. Make sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesday. And, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a rating and review.

We each eat on average between 500-1300 gallons of water every day. Understanding the virtual water footprint of our food is a great starting point to begin Eating Less Water.   Water footprint totals of some popular foods: 1 almond = 1 gallon of water 1 slice of bread- 11 gallons of water 1 pound of lettuce = 10 gallons of water 1 orange = 21 gallons of water 1 apple =33 gallons of water 1 dozen eggs = 276 gallons of water 1 cup cooked rice = 50 gallons of water 1 pound of pasta = 230 gallons of water 1 pound of chicken = 468 gallons of water 1 gallons milk = 720 gallons of water 1 pound of cheese = 414 gallons of water 1 pound of beef = 1800 gallons of water 1 pound of butter = 3602   Show action tip: Serve more foods on your plate with lower water footprint totals (i.e. more plants on your plate). It’s better for you and for a river.   Links and resources:   Receive 15% off your next purchase at the EAT LESS WATER shop Follow me on Instagram: @eatlesshttps://www.instagram.com/eatlesswater/?hl=enwater For more about me and what I do, check out my website.   Make sure you hit SUBSCRIBE so you don’t miss out on future episodes released every Monday and (water) Wednesday.   And, if you enjoyed this episode, please leave me a rating and review.
