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.

Why a HOW TO EAT LESS WATER podcast? In this first episode I share with you how I came to move my water conservation from the shower after selling 80K shower timers to the kitchen.   Every drought we are told to focus on the water we can see like the water from our sprinkler heads, our showers, and water hose. Those actions are important but a drop in the bucket in comparison to the water stored in our refrigerators and pantries. Seven out of every 10 gallons of water is used to grow and produce our food and we each eat on average between 500-1300 gallons of virtual water everyday. I understood if I was going to be the most effective at saving water I had to move out of the shower and into the kitchen.  Can I as an individual eater make a difference on water systems around the world? I took my question directly to farmers and food producers around the nation, traveling the distance of 16,000 miles. What I learned I wrote in the pages of my book EAT LESS WATER:THE SOLUTION TO WATER SHORTAGES IS IN THE KITCHEN. I speak to groups of all sizes, deliver food workshops, host events, have found myself on radio and television, and always I get the same set of questions: What should I buy? Where should I shop? What are the things I should be doing in my kitchen to eat less water?  So this podcast is answering those question. What you can expect from this podcast: A place that provides good simple information around living more sustainably that's easy to digest and can be implemented the same day.Each podcast will be 7 to 10 minutes long on Monday and Wednesday. And every once in a while, I'll have a guest on to share inspiring stories to get us thinking differently, provide useful information, and to cross-pollinate ideas. This podcast takes on the big problems we face like water scarcity, and climate change and breaks it down into small action tips that you and I can integrate into our lives simply and easily because the reality is our plates are already full. I'm going to show you over the course of this podcast how to implement change piece by piece with actions that don't cost a lot of money and in fact, will save you $$ time. And the best part is you will discover like me, that to be on this path to grow well-being increases the joy in your own life because you are part of the solution. Links and resources: Receive 15% off your next purchase at the EAT LESS WATER shopFollow 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.<
