Why I’m {mostly} vegetarian.

Why I'm mostly vegetarian.

You may be wondering why I bother to explain. After all, there are plenty of vegetarian RDNs, along with non-vegetarian ones. It’s not like I am explaining a decision to subsist on earthworms (ewww).

There are a number of reasons a person might be vegetarian, and I would hate for you to assume that it is for attention-seeking measures if the only vegetarians you know are like that. Continue reading “Why I’m {mostly} vegetarian.”

Money saved by line-drying; is it worth it?

Money Saved by Line Drying

I have always loved the idea of line-drying; the smell of line-dried laundry is so fresh and appealing, and it’s a great excuse to get outside for a few minutes. What I don’t love is how guilty I feel when I stuff a load of sheets into the dryer instead of hauling them to the back yard.

When I decided to post about the money you can save using a clothesline, I was secretly hoping the numbers would motivate me to get out there more often (even in the winter).
