making the world a better place one bite at a time


Welcome to my Conscious Shopping blog! If you’re here, I’m guessing that, like me, you’d like to make the world a better place, too…

My name is Maia and here’s how I intend to realize that vision:
one bite at a time—literally and figuratively.  

We both know that’s not going to happen overnight, but I believe that in making small, intentional choices in our everyday lives, together we can achieve great things. I also believe that happy, well-fed people make the world go ‘round.

So, here is where you’ll find healthy and delicious recipes, green house-cleaning tips and strategies for making conscious decisions about the food you buy and as cliché as it may sound, voting with your dollar.

Each week, you’ll find new recipes and tips for incorporating my Conscious Shopping principles into your buying habits. Here are my five basic guidelines for being a Conscious Shopper:

  • Plan what you’re eating.
  • Use recipes that share common ingredients.
  • Shop with a list.
  • Check pantry/fridge inventory.
  • Set a weekly budget.

To make this as simple as possible, on the Recipes & More page, you can use the Category search function to search recipes by ingredient and pull up all the recipes that use the ingredient you’re looking for.

Thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to sign up for the Conscious Shopping blog, so you can have new recipes, tips and other informative content delivered to your Inbox each week.

Hope to see you soon,
