EatingEco Begins

Hi, all!

After months of preparation, and weeks of thought, I finally came up with a blog name I feel is appropriate. EatingEco.

So, what does that mean, exactly? I suppose it depends on your beliefs.

For my husband and I, part of EatingEco means not eating meat. We've been vegetarian for almost a year now, and it's done so much for our health and outlook on life. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you the details (unless you want them, then feel free to contact me!) EatingEco also means buying locally grown produce and other goods (which is easy when you live in San Diego, but can be done anywhere), eating seasonally (checking web resources to see what is in season), buying organic and buying with a conscience (we buy from our local organic food co-op and/or farmer's markets for the most part).

All of that can seem daunting, I know. We spent the better part of a year trying to work out all the kinks. Though now that we have, it seems pretty simple. I hope to help all of you reach that point, too!

Besides food stuff, this blog will likely cover things such as our dogs and dog rescue (we have two rescued miniature dachshunds), our yoga practice, San Diego (where we live), eco friendly products and tips, acupuncture (since I work at a community acupuncture clinic and am fascinated by it), and other holistic living topics.

Anyway, I will be updating with actual recipes, tips, tricks, etc. soon, but I just wanted to say "hello" and that I appreciate and applaud all of you who try to help out the planet as much as you can.

Cheers :)


  1. I can't wait to see what's to come, Carrie! :-)

  2. Thanks, Meghan!! :) I'm pretty excited, too! I haven't really written a blog in forever, so it's a total adventure!

  3. Hi Carrie! I will definitely follow this blog. I love the topic that you've selected. I've been meaning to message you about acupuncture. I'd like to try it too. I'll send you a note and get your thoughts.

    Take care,

  5. Hi Joanie! I'm glad! I think you're a fantastic cook, too. Do you keep up with a blog? I can't remember... Definitely do message me about acupuncture, I'd love to chat with you about it!

    Mom, I'm so glad, and I'm flattered! Love you!
