As you can see, it was a beautiful day for an Earth Day Fair. (My mom and sister are on the right.) There were many booths with energy saving guides and gadgets, and many repurposed items, e.g., feed bags made into shopping bags and XXL men’s shirts made into women’s shirts. ("Repurposed" is my new favorite word. I'm a word nerd like Chocolate Covered Vegan.)
I don’t know why the bike with wings was there, but it was just lovely!
This was the solar powered stage for the live music.
This was my favorite thing at the fair.
A giant solar powered oven!
It’s called "The Villager" because it can feed a village in an hour.

I bought myself a looseleaf tea maker and some wonderful locally made Zhi Tea.
Sample teas too. If you're a tea lover, you really should take a look at the Zhi Tea website to see all the wonderful flavors they offer.
I also got tons of sample Clif bars, including flavors I have never before encountered, including Cool Mint Chocolate. I brought home broccoli and sunflower sprouts from the market and my mom took home onions, tomatoes, and lots of salad greens. I also bought a locally made Lemon Currant Granola for my mom and me to share. I had never tasted nor ever even seen Lemon Granola and it was delicious! As I was eating some chopped apples sprinkled with the delicious granola, I grabbed the bag to check the ingredients because I was thinking I need to make up a batch of this stuff myself. Rolled oats, zante currants, lemon extract, butter…..
Who puts butter in granola!!?!!??
In honor of Earth Day today, I made myself a Green Tea Smoothie after a grueling session with my trainer.
