6-Green-Outdoor-Halloween-Decor-Ideas

Sure, Halloween is still a few weeks away, but if you’re planning to put up any outdoor decorations, it’s a good idea to start thinking about your options. Waiting until the last minute to dress up your home might result in just a sad, saggy pumpkin lolling around on your front step, and some terrible facial tissue ghosts bobbing around overhead. In addition to carving vegetables like pumpkins and squashes, which are both delicious and compostable, you can check out some of the great eco-friendly decor options out there to make this Halloween the greenest one yet.

6 Emergency Essentials for Surviving 72 Hours Without Power

 

Preparedness, power outage, power failure, 72 hours without power

The motto “always be prepared” is a good one to keep in mind, but one might not understand the importance of that until immersed in a situation that one hasn’t prepared properly for at all. With climate change wreaking havoc on the planet, superstorms, floods, tornadoes, and droughts are becoming more frequent, and it’s not uncommon for people to be without power for a few days. Although some people might feel a bit paranoid or weird about keeping a supply of certain items in the house “just in case”, it’s always better to have them and not need them, than vice-versa. Read on to learn about the supplies that everyone should keep on hand if the power goes out for a few days.

6 Recipes for a Vegan French Canadian Thanksgiving Menu

6-Recipes-for-a-Vegan-Quebecois-Thanksgiving

The harvest comes in early here in Canada; a full month before our neighbors to the south, in fact! As such, our Thanksgiving feast falls on the second weekend in October, rather than mid November, and you can bet that the season’s bounty is celebrated with great delight all across the country. Every region has its signature dishes for this particular holiday, and rural Québec is no exception. Although traditional fare is quite meat-heavy (turkey, ham, pork-filled pies and such), there are some gorgeous options for those who prefer a plant-based diet. Here are a few classic Québecois Thanksgiving dishes that we’ve updated for vegan palates.

6-Delicious-Coffee-Alternatives

While there’s nothing quite like a hot cup of java to start your day out and give you that morning jolt of energy, drinking too much coffee throughout the day isn’t great for your health.

With fall in full swing and winter approaching, hot beverage season is upon us. If you’d like to cut your caffeine consumption but don’t want to give up your morning ritual, you’re in luck: here are some very tasty and healthy coffee alternatives that you can enjoy at any time of the day.
