Alicia, thanks so much for taking the time to catch up with Recycled Brides readers. We all remember your 2005 wedding to your husband Christopher Jarecki so fondly! It was the first green wedding to get national media attention, and helped launch the eco-chic weddings trend. Can you share some of your favorite details from that day?
My pleasure! Im so happy with each decision that we made for our wedding. The easiest decision was that the entire 3-day event would be plant based food. It was super delicious! That is the greenest thing that you can do at a wedding; serve food that is local, in season, and plant based& as much as possible.
Another decision we made was not to have flowers everywhere. Instead we had single onions and sage and vintage carafes of wine as the centerpieces on the tables. The invitations were printed on plantable, recycled paper. We rented bamboo chairs, and the wood that was used as the dance floor was reclaimed wood, and was then used after our wedding.
People loved the food! Thats what was talked about the most after the wedding& how delicious the food was. We went to a regular caterer, and asked them to create a whole vegan menu. They played around, and we got to taste a bunch of dishes. Yum! That was my favorite part. Then, we chose what food we wanted at the wedding.
Choosing the food was the most important decision i made. I just really wanted everyone to just love the food so much, that they wouldnt be able to stop thinking about it!
Your book, The Kind Diet, is impressively researched and filled with great scientific information. How did you learn so much about food and health?
When I first started eating only plant based foods, I immediately saw the benefits. I experienced weight loss, got rid of my acne, had tons of energy, my skin got all glowy, and my nails got strong and lost those white calcium marks. I got rid of my asthma inhaler, and stopped having to get allergy shots. I really thought that this all must have been good karma. But then, I started doing research and found that this way of eating is just healthier for you. That many doctors, like Joel Fuhrman, Caldwell Esselstyn, and John MacDougall, were curing heart disease, diabetes and cancer through this kind of diet.
A diet that cures disease, clears up your skin, and makes you lose weight? Thats kind of amazing. Since many of our readers are brides who want to look their best for their big day, can you tell them how to use Hermes Replica Bags to achieve healthy weight loss and beauty for their big day?
