In August 2009, I began measuring my impact on the environment. Since then I’ve analyzed my energy-use habits while researching the impact of over-consumption on the global hunger epidemic, global relations and global quality of life. This process has driven me to notice the disparity between my environmental impact in the past and my footprint goal for the future.
My drive to change my own habits has evolved into a desire to share my strategies. I crafted the Biocadence Recipe and the Impact/Disturbance (ID) Model, to illustrate the critical role of behavioral sustainability in the sustainable lifestyle transition process. Biocadence is focused on increasing the accessibility of sustainable living and facilitating the rhythm of humanity in harmony with nature.
The vision of MyCadence is to build a community of environment-lovers who come together to leverage each other’s knowledge and celebrate sustainable living accomplishments.

My CSA delivered a few things I don't often use: colliflower, brocolli romanesco and celery. I puzzled over what to do with them for a few days. I decided to pull out the food processor and experiment. I added a few CSA items that I do love to use: zucchini, bok choy and garlic. I finely chopped all ingredients and mixed them in a large bowl, adding 3 eggs and approximately 3/4 cup flour. I used a 1/4 cup measurement to make patties. At 400 degrees, I baked these until browned. As they baked I put coconut oil and the softer cheese I had in the fridge (not sure what kind... he he) in a pan and whipped up an indulgent sauce, adding butter and finely chopped cilantro right at the end! I fried the cakes for some extra crisp. They are so yummy and a great way to use ingredients that I'm NOT familiar with!
