An Organic Earth Day Feast with Cascadian Farm

by Tiffany in Healthy Eating

A few weeks back Cascadian Farm asked me to participate in an all organic Earth Day feast celebration. My mission was simply to create an Earth Day feast, or rather a feast worthy of Earth Day since I would have to do it earlier in the month, and use organic foods. To facilitate they sent me an Earth Day Celebration Kit with Cascadian Farms products and coupons. So of course I decided to incorporate Cascadian Farm foods wherever I could.

In honor of the warmer weather of late I decided to go with a backyard picnic feast. I dug out my fave yard sale quilt (only $1.00!) that we use for picnics and I made light and fresh foods. That ended up being paleo chicken tacos, homemade salsa, and blueberry coconut milk smoothies. Perfect for a mid day picnic in the back yard. All the fresh fruit and veggies just scream Earth Day.

Pretty much everything was organic and to make it a Cascadian Farm affair we used their Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes in the salsa, frozen sweet corn as a taco topping, and frozen blueberries in the smoothies. It was delicious! We might just do the whole thing over again on Earth Day for reals. ;)

We buy organic most of the time but it is always good to have that reminder that it is better for the planet and for our health. Supporting organic is a crucial step in voting for the world we want. “Like” the Cascadian Farm Facebook page to get more information on their Earth Day celebration. Also many thanks to them for our kit, which came in that nifty canvas basket seen in the pictures.

    I love the way those tacos look. They look delicious. I am trying to go more organic. I’m growing my own veggies and fruit and going organic. I try and buy organic when I can. I agree with you that going organic is crucial for a better planet and health. Really like your post.

    I love picnics! Weather permitting, my husband and I spend summer Sundays picnic-ing on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Can’t wait to introduce this tradition to our new baby girl!

    I love Cascadian Farms frozen fruits and vegetables. My grandson loves their cereals. Earth Day means so much more when you think about where you food comes from, it’s quality and how it came to be on your table.

    I would just love to win this basket! It’s more like for the  challenge of how to use all that’s in it than just winning in and of itself.I really do love a good challenge. And am attempting to switch to organic however whenever wherever I can. It is such a slow and difficult process. This basket sure would help!
