    Richer countries eat more meat than other places because meat is a luxury, many countries rely on animals for resources. Eating more meat results in water waste.

    Food Zero-Waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for using every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable (including the skins, tops, stalks, etc.) during your next meal prep?

    I think preserving every part of a vegetable that's available is important and can be used in different recipes in your meals. I know that I like to use skins or scraps as decoration for my food when I'm preparing meals or throw them in the pan when cooking vegetables. It can be as easy as using them to make your meals look fancy or cooking it along with other ingredients.

    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA or another trusted source. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    I think vegetables and fruits in general have been a great food that has not only been beneficial for me but for preservation. Being able to preserve foods that are good for my body and using them in different recipes has been exciting and a great experience.

    Now I never turn on the lights when it is light out. Now I will always open the window and let natural light in and only turn on lights when it is absolutely necessary.

    Every time that I leave a room now I make sure that all lights are off and that if I am not using a electronic device that it is unplugged because even if something is off and it is still plugged in it takes energy

    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    I feel like it does ring true to me. There is something about spending time in nature that is undesirable. Breathing the air on top of your hike or even looking at the ocean wave crash something about it is just breath taking. This builds emotional connection to nature that you become more attached and appreciate a lot more for what the planet does for us.

    Some ways I would like shift my sleeping patterns is by following a schedule and sticking to it. Some ways would be sleeping early and waking up early. I feel like this benefits me by increasing my productivity and having more energy by not getting enough hours of sleep.

    Actively listening to someone is very nice because you are able to talk to and fully understand what one another are trying to say. Both individuals benefit by increasing their communication skills and learn how to actively listen.
