Valentineâ€™s Day is a romantic holiday but who said you had to stick to the usual gifts that may not go with your green lifestyle? Here are five gifts ideas for your green significant other:
Jewelry is the most common gift to give to your loved one on Valentineâ€™s Day. So why not make it something eco-friendly that didnâ€™t cause peopleâ€™s lives? Here are gifts from recycled, reused, and/or natural materials that will go excellent with your â€œgreenâ€ Valentineâ€™s Day.
There are many companies that make accessories that help a good cause. Iâ€™m choosing Hemp Sisters (Earth Divas) this time because they have a great variety of green gifts for your significant other.
Romantic Evening â€“ Do a Home Spa
Gaiam is a great site with wonderful gifts for any occasion. I picked this â€œHealing Home Spaâ€ set because it a great way to show your loved one that you care for their health and the earth.
When you are Ready to Commit
Compost buckets! Not your typical romantic gift, but it will make a statement that you both are ready to take the next step in your â€œgreenâ€ path and commit to it.
Something Practical for All
This is a great gift if you know you significant other has everything and doesnâ€™t need another necklace, ring, earrings, etc., or your family doesnâ€™t exchange gifts. I picked Tonic, formerly Green Dimes, for this occasion because itâ€™s a great way to stay green by eliminating unnecessary junk mailings that are cause trash. Not a typical romantic gift, but a very original idea!
So now that you picked the gift, all that is left are the card, the flowers, the chocolates, and dinner.
Picking a card that is green is easy. Most places sell now cards made or recycle paper etc. However, if you want to take one green step further, check out these cards that have wild flower seeds that can be planted to grow. Very original and will impress your â€œgreenâ€ significant other.
If your honey is like me, they wonâ€™t want flowers and may prefer plants. However, if they do like flowers, here is an organic shop that has a great variety for this special occasion.
Take this opportunity to try raw vegan chocolate. I have many raw favorites, but for Valentineâ€™s Day Iâ€™m recommending Gnosis Chocolates.
If you are truly green, you will want to go to a vegetarian or vegan restaurant. To locate a local place to take your significant other for dinner, use Happy Cow. And if you are in South Florida and want an impressive restaurant, try Sublime.
Happy Green Valentineâ€™s Day! Remember that the most important part of this holiday is LOVE!
Anyone that has met me in the last 11 years knows how much fun I had changing my hairâ€¦ color, cuts, and styles. Every month was something different, a different shade of red too.Â And I loved every color I tried! My hair stylist loved it when I showed up because she knew she got to do whatever she wanted, and I would have loved it no matter what.
I had been coloring my hair since I turned 18 and after 10 years I decided to stop.
It started when I went to my first Raw Spirit Fest in Sedona about two years ago. I heard Victoria and ValyaBoutenko talk about all these products we all use in our bodies and we think we are healthy â€˜cause we have a raw vegan diet. Well I was sitting there all proud â€˜cause I used organic and/or natural creams, shampoos, soaps, makeup, tooth paste, oils, etc. My ego was going â€œyeah suckas! gotta go all natural!â€ nodding my head to their words.
Until they talked about hair dyes; â€œOops!â€ The ego said, â€œWell I use vegetable dyes from whole foods. Thatâ€™s not bad!â€ I knew I was lying to myself. I had only starting using vegetable dyes two years previous to that, but I had about 8 years worth of chemicals in my body for sure. So about a year ago I decided to stop dying it and had to cut most of it out.
Itâ€™s been a year and finally all the color is completely out! I can say Iâ€™m all natural now!
I wake up and look at my new REAL hair color and itâ€™s not bad and it makes me proud to say it was a big step for me and Iâ€™m happy with my decision. I do miss my red-colored hair every now and then. But if Iâ€™m going to talk the talk, I gotta walk the walk. Plus there are always wigsâ€¦ natural ones of course!
We went to the global premiere of â€œThe Age of Stupidâ€ on Monday September 21st and as usual, I walked out angry, frustrated, and depressed. Anytime I watch a movie about the environment, I cry and feel hopeless. Mostly because I feel that no one cares and no one is doing enough to conserve the very little resources we have left. It usually takes me days to recover. As we drove home, I decided I was going to be more positive and thought of what else I could do, not just in my lifestyle, but promoting what Iâ€™m passionate about. I talk about raw food more than anything else, but I donâ€™t share my feelings and knowledge about the environment. So Iâ€™ve come up with these three lists of tips on how to help conserve and be â€œgreener.â€
Reusable bottles, bags, and natural soaps
So you already recycle and have changed your light bulbs. Well thatâ€™s not enough! Here are 5 tips for beginners.
Stop buying bottle water please! It will save you money and help conserve by not making more plastic bottles that will eventually land in our ocean. Get a reusable bottle and a filter and voila! You have bottled water!
Ok so you probably bought the reusable bags but are forgetting to carry them. I keep at least three bags in my car, one at my office, and two in my purse. I now collect a tote or reusable bag from every place I travel. I actually no longer gift wrap presents but put them in a nice reusable bag, that way the person will get two gifts!
Yeah I bet you didnâ€™t know about this. Most soaps contaminate the water supply. There are environmentally friendly soaps that are very reasonable in price, for example, Dr. Bronnerâ€™s soap is great because it last for a very long time and it comes in gallon size containers. They also carry a laundry and cleaning Dr. Bronnerâ€™s soap called Dr. Bronnerâ€™s Sal Suds.
It creates tons of garbage! So if you canâ€™t cook or donâ€™t have time, look for recycled packaging specially plastic number 1, 2, and 3. However, I strongly recommend starting to fade out microwaveable foods.
Instead of immediately throwing things away, donate or swap with other people. Freecycle.org is a great way to re-use; itâ€™s a way to give away the stuff you no longer want without having to find a place to take it. Itâ€™s free and a lot of people can benefit from your â€œgarbage.â€
So you already know more than the average person, here are some advance tips that will prove how committed you are to saving the planet.
My Compost Bucket
Great way to create less trash and make fertilizer for your plants. If you live in an apartment, there are methods to compost in small places. Once we began composting, we reduced our trash to 1 bag a month for 4 people!
Replacing your current thermostat for one that can be programmed for multiple temperature settings throughout the day and week can help save a lot of money and energy thus saving the earth. I recently replaced mine for a three bedroom house and my electric bill went down 40%! Mind you Iâ€™m in Florida and summer just ended.
There are two ways to do this. One by collecting water every time you wash your dishes and re-use the water for plants. Two if you have a backyard and can collect rain water, set up buckets outside and use that water for plants and lawn.
Here are some more tips to earn extra credit in the â€œgreeningâ€ path.
MailStopper - Formerly GreenDimes
I used to recycle all my junk mail until I found Green Dimes. Itâ€™s the best $20 bucks Iâ€™ve spent ever! I no longer get anyunwanted mail.
Plant more trees
Even if you live in an apartment, there are local projects and even national places where you can plant trees or donate as little as $1 for each tree planted.
Yes, you may think you already do this but in fact, you may be driving the same amount. Count how many miles you drive a week and reduce them by carpooling, taking public transportation, etc. When I bought my Prius, I also started riding the train to work and carpooling. It becomes a habit very quickly and part of your life.
Buy local food/organic
Support your local organic farmers; it saves the earth because they are using organic farming methods and you are not supporting produce that travels across country using fossil fuels.
Replacing the soap used for laundry, the dryer sheets for dryer balls, using a low temperature, and air drying helps tons not to mention will save you money.
I wrote this post a day after I saw the movie but was unable to post it because I didnâ€™t have access to Internet at home. As one of my decisions to do more for the environment, we downsize our living space and moved to an area that reflects our beliefs and lifestyle.
Weâ€™ve been accumulating papers for over 5 years to one day shred it all away. I first bought a shredder and it broke trying a handful of papers. I then bought an outdoor chimenea to burn all the papers, but that wasnâ€™t very environmentalist of me and wind up not burning anything. As the years passed by, the papers accumulated to a tall trash can stored in our home.
So finally the time came to move to a smaller place and give up the garage that stored it all. I was looking for a service to pay to shred all my important data and found that BSO, Broward Sheriff Office, was having a FREE shredding event every month on the second Saturday of the month.
We took 7 full boxes of receipts, credit card statements that were at least three years old! I had cdâ€™s and old expired credit cards tooâ€¦ you name it, they took it! They shred everything in front of you in a truck… it was awesome!
I’ve managed to accumulate a whole box now, so I’m taking it tomorrow.
If you are a South Florida/Broward resident, you should take advantage of this free event. For more information, see the BSO site.
Computer bag, Hiking bag, and Lunch bag ready for our trip!
In the two years weâ€™ve been vegan raw foodists weâ€™ve travel quite often and have been able to eat what we are used to eating at home and not struggle finding food during the trip.
How do we do it? This is a very common question we get asked all the time. In the last trip we took, to DC for the RSF, I was in the plane and decided it was time to write about it. So here are my top ten tips to travel raw!
First, check the rules for traveling with foods, liquids, etc as they are constantly changing. If you travel internationally chances are itâ€™s a bit more difficult to bring some vegetables and fruits with you are on the plane. Second, check to find the closest organic markets, local farmers markets, and raw food or vegan restaurants around the area you are staying. We love HappyCow.com because it helps us plan ahead where we will be dining once we arrive at the location. It also shows me all local markets and their contact information. Using this information, we map the places we want to go to and decide where to eat or shop for food.
Helpful tip: Write down the phone numbers and hours of operation of the places you want to visit.
Bring Your Own Food
We always carry Avocados, lettuce, and cucumbers with us for the plane ride. I also include enough fruits, nuts, and seeds for the ride.Â So far, we haven’t had any issues at security. We have a lunch bag that qualifies as a carry-on where we put all our food for the plan ride. Yes! You do have to run it through the x-ray but it’s better than the â€œglow-in-the-darkâ€ food at the airport.
Helpful tip: carry extra bags for compost such peels, seeds, etc.
We loved our olive oil and can’t live without it. So we’ve emptied and old vanilla extract bottle that is about 2 oz and washed and filled it up with Barianiâ€™s Olive Oil to carry with us in the plane ride. Using the foods we bring and the olive oil, we make ourselves a nice meal sometimes in the plane or at the airport while connecting.
Helpful tip: Go to any food court and ask for a plate or container to use for making your food.
This is a topic that is very delicate with most people who are healthy. Saltâ€¦ we like it and we need it. We use Real Salt and carry it with us everywhere. We have it in the car, at work, in my purse, everywhere. So when we fly or travel, it’s always with us.
Helpful tip: Real Salt has a small container that can be refilled.
Traveling Lunch Bag
Water, Green Powder and pH Drops
Water is possibly the most important part of traveling. Since we can’t carry liquids anymore, the first thing we do after the security check is get water. If you are lucky, some airports carry water with a high pH that will help you keep hydrated during your trip. If you are driving, I suggest taking your own water with you in a cooler. We also use a green powder and pH drops to add to the water. This helps us stay hydrated and get all the vitamins our bodies need while traveling. We even carry lemons or limes to squeeze into the water to that it stay freshâ€¦ yes that’s more complicated, but we now carry our lemon squeezer!
Helpful tip: if you carry your lemon squeezer (like we do), take it out of the bag during security check and set it on top of your jacket so that they don’t go through your lunch bag.
We always do desserts because if you pass the cinnamon bun stand at the airport, chances are you would be tempted to have one. If a fruit serves as dessert, bring apples and bananas as they are the easiest to carry. If you donâ€™t consider a fruit dessert, then bring something sweet for the trip. We like to make nut and dried fruit bags for the trip. Sometimes we carry raw chocolate bars, not good if you are planning to sleep in the plane. Also, we recently discover raw cookies in a package by Go Raw and they are perfect for traveling.
We carry two to four tea bags to drink in the plane and ask for hot water to brew the tea. We like the Lemon Echinacea Throat Coat by Traditional Medicinals the best. Why we drink tea? Most time in planes people are sick and we don’t want to run the risk of getting sick, especially if you are not getting the food your body is used to eating while traveling.
Helpful tip: ask for two cups of hot water to brew one tea bag, they usually server the water in small cups.
Helpful tip: Carry your salt, utensils, and napkins in the same zip lock bag inside your lunch bag, that way when is time to make your food in the plane, everything is accessible.
So last year we flew on Christmas day and arrived in California at close to midnight and we had run out of the food we carried with us. All there was open in San Fran were Chinese restaurants, and we didn’t think they would carry a salad! So here’s what we did, we ran to a 24-hour drug store and looked for snacks. They actually carried some vegetables rolls and fruits as well as some nuts and seeds. We bought some bananas, water, and pecans and that was our meal. Basically, don’t get depressed, there is always something raw somewhere. Don’t give up!
If everything else fails, buy at the airport
So if you had a last minute trip and didn’t get a chance to pack your lunch bag, buy a salad at the airport. Yes, the â€œglow-in-the-darkâ€ salads and fruits that have been transported there by so many hands and trucks. We’ve done it once or twice when traveling overseas and brought an avocado to complement the depressing lettuce they sell you at the airports, and we are not proud of it.
Helpful tip: carry your salt and oil and make a nice little meal.
When traveling overseas, the rules may be a little different. You may have to eat all your food before you get to the other country. I also heard a tip from Sergei Boutenko on how to travel to other countries, make a powder of dehydrated vegetables and pack it in your carry on. Ask for a cup of hot water and mix in the powder, with some salt and oil and you have a nice soup. Our local raw vegan farmers market actually sells the powder of a veggie mix that can be used for traveling. Nut bars and other raw treats help hold you until you land but will most likely dehydrate you.
As we continue to travel, we learn more tips on how to continue our lifestyle and enjoy traveling to new places. The best part of traveling raw is the faces of the people sitting next to you watching you eat! 😉
We stayed at a B&B in Mt. Shasta that has a Vita Mix and Dehydrator so we made pizza!
Tuna Fish Salad w/ Organic Dressing and Vegetarian Taquitos
When we began our transition to health, we started taking small steps. I strongly believe in transitioning slowly is the best way to achieve being a vegetarian because it eases the body into your new lifestyle. Iâ€™m not a believer in changes overnight… or cold turkey! At least, it didnâ€™t work for us! So here are five easy ways to begin the transition to a healthy vegetarian lifestyle.
Start fading red meat and pork from your diet
One easy way to accomplish this is to find how many times do you eat red meat and pork and fade both gradually. For example, if you eat red meats 2 times a day 5 days a week, start by eating it once a day for three weeks. After three weeks, eat red meat 3 times a week only and so forth. Calculate how many times a week you eat pork and apply the same principle. In addition, after the first two months, stop buying pork and red meat at restaurants. Only eat it if you buy it to prepare at home. If you go out very often, order poultry only, chicken and turkey. After six months, eat meat and pork only once a week, and after that every other week. Very soon your body wonâ€™t even remember what flesh tastes like! After a year, say goodbye to flesh!
Increase amount of vegetables and whole grains
As you eliminate the amount of red meat and pork you eat, begin to increase the amount of vegetables and whole grains in your meals. For example, if you eat two hamburgers a day, eat one and replace the rest with your favorite vegetable or whole grains such beans, chick peas, lentils, quinoa, or buckwheat to name a few. I suggest experimenting with frozen vegetables because they are less expensive and that way you can begin to identify what you like. Vegetable and wjole grains have lots of protein and vitamins that your body will need to begin the transition. Once you know what your favorite vegetable and grains are, buy them fresh and experiment with different seasoning, etc.
Decrease the amount of dairy and eggs you consume
I became allergic to dairy at 21, so it was very easy for me to give up dairy. You may find that you may be allergic to dairy too. The problem became learning to read labels. A lot of â€œveganâ€ and â€œvegetarianâ€ products such mock cheeses and even crackers have dairy in them, so I had to learn to read labels when shopping.Â I was also allergic to eggs since I was 14, every time I ate more than one egg a week, I would get chest pains.
Apply the same rule as in eliminating meats, find how many times you consume dairy and eggs, and begin decreasing the amount slowly. Eggs have high amount of cholesterol. One easy way to start is by buying a carton of 6 eggs as supposed to 12 and make them last for two weeks. After a few months, make them last for three weeks until you reach a point in which you can eat one egg a week. In addition, start buying less milk, cheese, butter, and other dairy products. If you are able, replace milk with soy or almond milk. Start with small amounts, for example instead of buying a gallon of milk, buy a small jug, a smaller pack of cheese, and replace your butter with a vegetarian option that doesnâ€™t contain hydrogenated oil.
Fish, your new best transitional choice!
I loved fish! This was the hardest thing to give up when I became a vegan especially because I loved sushi (donâ€™t worry; we wonâ€™t go there in this list). But we didnâ€™t always like fish until we started giving up meat, pork, and chicken. I come from a country where is very hard to buy fresh fish and what you get smells very bad… which as we all know, if the fish smells, itâ€™s not good to eat anymore! So as we began eliminating meat, we began ordering fish at restaurants and buying to make at home. We started with salmon which was our favorite and later incorporated trout as well which is a great source of omega 3. I donâ€™t recommend canned fish, but if thatâ€™s what it takes to begin eating fish, Iâ€™d say do it for the first two or three months until your body learns to like fish. Anything canned has tons of sodium and preservatives that the body doesnâ€™t need.
Go to a vegetarian restaurant
This is a very easy step towards health. Going to vegetarian restaurants or even preparing vegetarian dishes is the best way to begin. Apply the same rule as eliminating meat, calculate how many times a week you eat out and begin replacing one restaurant with a vegetarian choice. For example, if you eat out 5 times a week, 1 time a week choose a vegetarian or vegan restaurant. Lots of restaurants have vegetarian meals nowadays, if you think you can resist from choosing the steak over the vegetarian meal of the day, then go ahead. But it may be hard to watch everyone else eat the steak while you eat a plate of grains and vegetables. In addition, vegetarian restaurants are more creative with their meals and they tend to taste much better than the â€œveggieâ€ plate at the local steak house that usually serves canned veggies with only salt and pepper.
To find a vegetarian restaurant near you, visit Happy Cow, a directory of vegetarian restaurants in the country and even outside the U.S.
Fish Paella w/ Brown Rice and Romaine Lettuce and Tomatoes
Any transition takes time and consistency. After the first year we stop eating meat and pork completely, we lost between 20 to 25 lbs each without doing anything else. That was the most â€œvisibleâ€ change we had in our lifestyle, but there were other changes as well. I also recommend visiting a doctor and get your blood tested before making any changes to your lifestyle. Some people may want to add vitamins and even a B-complex vitamin as they eliminate red meat and dairy. After you fade out red meat and pork, get your blood tested again and compare it with the previous test. Most likely, your health will have improved!

I believe health has many meanings and we all have a different definition of what being healthy is. At every stage of my journey I felt I was healthier than before. I believe that being healthy is a cycle of different parts of oneâ€™s lifestyle. I believe itâ€™s not just about food and exercise, but also about state of mind and the environment we live in. However, food and exercise have a huge impact on the other elements of oneâ€™s lifestyle.
Therefore, I will start with answering one of the most common questions I get asked, what are some of the things a person can begin to do to change their lifestyle to a healthier one? Iâ€™ve summarized what I believe are the top 10 first steps to start transitioning.
I read and did tons of research when I started my journey. I began by eliminating the following from my diet and lifestyle.
High Fructose corn Syrup
Itâ€™s almost in everything! Reading labels is very important and you will find that high fructose corn syrup is in everything you are used to eating and drinking. Why is it bad for you? Well I will need almost another page to write about that, but instead, I would suggest to read Dr. Andrew Weilâ€™s explanation
Trans Fats and Hydrogenated Oils
Once again, reading labels is very important. Even though some packaged foods may say â€œNo Trans Fats,â€ they may have hydrogenated oils. They are not the same, and I will let Dr. Weil explain that in his article.
I loved coffee! It took me two weeks to quit. I replaced it with black tea, green tea, and white tea. These teas have caffeine but lack the toxins that coffee has and will help you begin the transition from coffee. How is that something so tasty can be bad for you? Well the studies conducted recently contradict each other leaving us with only the side effects to judge. Side effects according to Dr. Weil may include â€œanxiety, insomnia, tremor, irregular heartbeat, irritate the digestive system, bladder and prostate.â€
Junk and Fast Food
Have you ever wondered why fast food is so inexpensive? Why junk food is so addicting? Well if you read the labels you can see the answers to those questions. Most contain trans fats, hydrogenated oil, and high fructose corn syrup. If you eat it everyday, start small by cutting any fast and junk food two days a week the first week, three days the next week and so forth.
Why is TV bad for you? Well not all shows are bad, but the more time we spend on the couch watching TV, the more time we loose on other activities that can contribute to a healthier lifestyle. I would suggest cutting down the amount of time spent on the couch watching TV and playing games to 30 to 45 minutes a day and begin replacing that with other activities. This is one addiction Iâ€™m still battling.
Add to your Lifestyle
So we remove bad things and replace them with good things. Here is a list of things one can begin to add to help the transition.
Whole Grains and Foods
Replace white rice, white bread, white pasta, with whole grains and foods such as brown rice, whole wheat breads and pasta. I developed a love for Soba noodles, rice noodles and past as well as long brown rice and whole grains.Â Most grocery stores carry these nowadays and have reasonable prices.
Vegetables and Fruits
Probably one of the most important things to add to oneâ€™s new healthier lifestyle. At the beginning I would recommend to start with frozen vegetables that way you can experiment and find what you like and then replace them with fresh vegetables. Many times, if one is not used to eating certain veggies, buying fresh and not using them in time can be discouraging. Replace the afternoon snack-machine-candy-bar for a fruit or the morning on-the-go frozen-breakfast for a fresh fruit smoothie. You will be adding tons of vitamins to your diet without having to spend money on additional vitamins.
Drinking Delicious Ionized Water from Reusable Bottle
Drinking water is very important to help the body eliminate toxins. Start small if you are not used to drinking water. Replace two of your preferred drinks with a bottle of water everyday until you are able to drink water without thinking. I prefer Essentia water because it has the highest pH available in bottled water, but I also rather carry my reusable bottle and fill it up with water from my own filtered kitchen sink. I later bought a water Ionizer which I prefer.
Spending Time with Nature and Doing Outdoor Activities
So even though Iâ€™m a TV addict and can spend up to 6 hours straight in front of the TV without even blinking, I feel much better when I go outside and spend time with nature. I donâ€™t pay for being outdoors; I find activities or recreational sites that are free. For example, going to the beach, taking a walk in a park, hiking in local parks, going for a car ride, riding a bicycle around the block, or simply sitting in my backyard reading. Even if you live in a city, there are parks and sites. If not, use your balcony or roof to spend time outside your living area away from the TV.
Exercise for 30 minutes three times a week
I knowâ€¦ I knowâ€¦ this is the hardest thing to do! I love and hate exercise. I love it when Iâ€™m doing it, and I hate it before I begin. I can come up with all sorts of excuses to getting out of exercising. So Iâ€™ve decided now that as creative as I get with the excuses, I can be creative on how I get my 30 minutes of exercise a week. I recently started going to the beach and swimming in the ocean three times a week after work and swimming for 30 to 45 minutes a day. I also have a rebounder that I moved near my computer and started to jump for 15 minutes before I begin to check my email or go on Facebook, etc. While Denis works on the computer I may do some yoga poses while I wait for the computer or lift some weights. I belonged to a gym and loved it, but we had to cut out our budget for the gym to save money. Now, I look for ways to exercise for free.
Walk on the Beach
Every person is different and I suggest beginning very small. Pick one thing from each list to begin with and see how it works for you. It also helps to have the support of others or people who can do it with you. Iâ€™ve read many books and done research before I started. I also do a general check up every year and get my blood work done too.
Itâ€™s important to have the help of a doctor before making any changes to your lifestyle.
Here are some of the books I would recommend reading before getting started:

What is Pan y Vinito?
Pan y Vinito is my nickname. When I was born, a movie was released called "Marcelino Pan Y Vino." My grandfather saw the movie and named me after the movie. So from then on he called me "Marcelita Pan Y Vino." Years later the name became "Pan y Vinito."
The words Pan y Vino actually mean "bread and wine."
