Not sure how indulging in ham, pie and other holiday favorites can actually make you feel good? Well, if the meal is cooked with an eye towards sustainability, you’re more likely to make a positive impact on your local community, the earth and your body while chowing down. To help you create this meal (and feel less guilty about gluttonous holiday food), GoodGuide is throwing a “Sustainable Holiday Meals” chat party on Wednesday, December 7th at 1pm PST/ 4pm EST.
Joining us will be Sustainable Table (@EatSustainable), an organization dedicated to educating people about the importance (and ease) of sustainable eating. We will also have healthy living expert Pooja Mottl (@PoojaMottl) on hand to advise on delicious and easy recipes. Follow the hash tag #SustainableMeals or use this special chat room to join in! We will chat about everything from what seasonal ingredients to use to prep tips that will get meals on the table faster.
An added bonus: we have prizes! One lucky winner will receive an eco-friendly skillet from Xtrema, which has a safe ceramic glaze instead of the harmful PFOA coating like most other popular non-stick cookware. We also be giving away an assortment of healthy ingredients from Lucini (organic olive oils/vinegars) and Alter Eco (cocoa, heritage rices and grains) for use in holiday culinary experiments, as well as a gift pack full of great reads on sustainable food systems.
Twitter Party Rules: Beginning 12/7/11 at 1:00 p.m. PT and ending 12/7/11 at 2:00 p.m. PT, participants must use the hashtag #SustainableMeals in order to qualify to win a prize. The first people to answer each question will be qualified to win. (NOTE: winner must be participating in chat and not just retweeting). Winners must be over 18 and residents of the USA. Neither the party sponsors @GoodGuide @PoojaMottl or @EatSustainable are responsible for misdirected or undeliverable Twitter updates, including those from private Twitter accounts.
