On Earth Day we celebrate and thank our planet for providing us with all life’s necessities – and this certainly includes food! This day also acts as a reminder for all of us to be kinder and gentler to this beautiful planet we call home.
It is crucial to remember that each one of us has the responsibility to do what we can to preserve the wellbeing of our planet for the next generations. What we do daily matters – even actions that on the surface may seem to irrelevant.
For example, the food that you choose to consume and how you obtain it, may have an adverse effect on the environment. Fortunately, this can certainly be minimized if you opt for simple but effective solutions such as choosing organic foods.
Eating organic fruits and vegetables brings plenty of benefits for your health and contributes to the natural production of food as it is chemical-free and/or only uses natural pesticides.
Are you looking for a special way to celebrate Earth Day this year? Then check out these delicious organic recipes from talented food bloggers, that you can whip up at home to enjoy with your family.
We also hope to inspire you to include more organic foods in your daily meals. This way, you will be able to contribute to helping our planet and discover how is it is to do so every day.
Farro, Kale, and Olive Salad by Traci of ‘Vanilla and Bean’
If you need inspiration and ideas on healthy and delicious recipes, Traci is the blogger to follow! Tracy believes that being conscious of what we consume every day can bring better results in helping us stay fit than any ‘magic’ diets out there.
The main reason we love Tracy’s blog is that she pays attention to tastes & flavors as much as she does to the health benefits. So, you can be sure to spoil your taste buds while taking care of your body.
If you’re thinking of having a small get-together for Earth Day this year, Traci’s blog is a one-stop shop for all types of organic recipes: from appetizers and snacks to vegan desserts, from vegetarian main dishes to refreshing cocktails, the possibilities are endless!
Our recommendation (though it was not easy just to choose one) from its recipes catalog is Farro, Kale, and Olive Salad. An excellent salad where the salty essence of the green olives and the milky flavor of the feta cheese make the perfect combination when coupled with the crispness of kale. To round it up, you’ll also need farro and some walnuts.
Golden Summer Squash Corn Soup by Natalie at ‘Once Upon a Cutting Board’
Food blogger Natalie created her lovely blog Once Upon a Cutting Board as a place to share the recipes of dishes that she loves to cook and eat!
Through her recipes, she successfully shows us that eating healthy doesn’t automatically mean that we would have to eat bland and tasteless food.
One of our favorite sections of the blog is ‘Recipes by Occasion’ where Natalie offers many great suggestions on what to cook on a specific holiday or occasion, as well as traditional dishes.
At Once Upon a Cutting Board, you can find plenty of delightfully sweet recipes, as Natalie believes you can definitely indulge in them from time to time to complement a well-balanced diet.
For this occasion, however, we suggest for you to try preparing a hearty batch of her savory and comforting Golden Summer Squash Corn Soup. You’ll need just a handful of ingredients: yellow onion, yellow summer squash, fresh corn, feta, and herbs and seasoning.

Layer Sweet Potato & Zucchini Lasagne by Amanda of ‘Easy Peasy Organic’
On this food blog, you’re bound to find Amanda’s (the wonderful woman behind the Easy Peasy Organic blog) inspiring take on some of the best things in life: cooking and traveling.
As a cancer survivor and a vegetarian, Amanda encourages her readers to take care of their well-being through her healthy and mouth-watering recipes.
During your Earth Day celebration, you can impress your guests with an organic Italian meal where Amanda’s scrumptious Layer Sweet Potato and Zucchini Lasagne can take center stage as the main dish. It only takes about 20 min to prep the ingredients, then you just let the oven do the trick. To put it together you’ll need organic tomatoes & tomato paste, ricotta (or cottage cheese), zucchinis, and some shredded cheese (of your preference, can be mozzarella or parmesan, for example) herbs, and seasoning.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies by Michele of ‘Baby Foode’
If you or some of your guests happen to have young munchkins that’ll be joining the celebration, you will definitely need to have some sweet treats on hand.
What started as a simple hobby became a wonderful resource for people looking to feed their tiny tots organic, natural food that tastes delicious!
Michele’s blog promotes the inclusion of organic ingredients, and as everybody is invited to celebrate our planet, we suggest that you whip up some treats for the lil ones on Earth Day too.
You can try Baby Foode’s Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies, which are babies, kids, and adults friendly! The recipe calls for old-fashioned oats, whole wheat flour, pumpkin puree, baking powder and baking soda, butter, some sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
