Go Natural When Dyeing Easter Eggs

eco-egg-dyeing-meme

  When I was a kid, every Easter I dunked eggs in mugs filled with those fizzing tablets that instantly produced vibrant colors. It was the ’70s, or the better-living-through-chemistry decade, when no one questioned how chemicals affected our health. Today, even though the kits sold in stores proclaim to be nontoxic, many still contain synthetic food dyes that studies have linked to allergies and behavioral problems like ADHD in children. Why not skip the kits with neon colors and glitter pens (they contain polyurethane) and go au naturel this spring? Using veggies, fruits, spices, tea, and coffee will produce a vivid array of hues from soft pastels to deep, earthy tones. Of course, creating dyes with organic produce will help […]

Reflecting on 2015, Revving up for 2016

Look Back at 2015

Looking Back at 2015 & Forward to 2016 What a wonderful—and action-packed—2015! We were reminded yet again that Mother Nature is always in charge. She brought heavy spring rains that kept our local farmers from planting their fields and delayed the growing season by several weeks. Meanwhile, our West Coast friends were having the opposite problem, thanks to a record-breaking drought. So here in Colorado, we enjoyed delicious spinach and fresh rhubarb from local farms while waiting patiently for the rest of our local season’s bounty. But we had plenty of events to keep us busy, including the Local Food Summit, Healthy Living Expo, Earth Day, VegFest, and Lafayette Peach Festival. We fueled our high-altitude athletes with organic bananas at […]
