Goat Cheese Walnut Berry Bites

Plan the Perfect Picnic this year for Earth Day with easy Goat Cheese Walnut Berry Bites. Plus win a picnic basket full of goodies in honor of “Picnic for the Planet 2012″ April 22nd, the world’s largest and most thoughtful picnic.

Goat Cheese Walnut Berry Bites

Planning the perfect picnic does not have to be difficult if you stick with low-maintenance dishes with few ingredients. Plus low-maintenance often means earth-friendly.  Earth Day is just a week away; how about celebrating this year with a picnic!

The Nature Conservancy hosts an annual celebration for Earth Day each year. Picnic for the Planet is a growing endeavor with 61 countries represented last year alone. It’s a strong reminder that we rely so heavily on the Earth for resources, it’s important to give back.

You can be a part of Picnic for the Planet by attending or hosting a picnic on April 22nd. Click here to find out more.

Picnic

Here are some ideas to make your picnic a little GREENER:

  • Use thermoses instead of individually bottled beverages.
  • Pack reusable plates, utensils and cloth napkins from home–classy and earth-friendly.
  • Serve foods that are seasonal, sustainable, and/or raw. Less cooking = less energy used.
  • Walk or bike to your picnic location.
  • Recycle or compost any waste.
  • Use natural insect repellent. It’s better for your skin and the environment.

Making Easy Goat Cheese Walnut Berry Bites

Goat Cheese Walnut Berry Bites are a sublime snack to serve at a spring cocktail party or pack for a picnic. Load your basket with English-style biscuits, fresh local berries, toasted walnuts, creamy local goat cheese, honey and a spreading knife. Then let the picnic-ers serve themselves. These are a wonderful compliment to a thermos of your favorite spring beverage.

Other items to add to your picnic basket:

    What a wonderful recipe and great giveaway! I’m new to this blog, but have been really enjoying reading it! I truly value living an eco-conscious life, and make earth-friendly choices with every opportunity… Over the years, this has encouraged me to follow a mostly plant-based diet, purchase eco skin/body care products that are not tested on animals, walk/bike/run to places that are within a 3mi radius instead of driving, carpool, and minimizing the use of electricity and water at home. But quite honestly, nothing has been as tremendously impacting in my life as the closeness that I’ve come to feel with Earth as a result of becoming aware of animal farming… I love animals and simply cannot make decisions that can ultimately hurt them in any way. Such a perspective, I believe, has made me a kinder, more compassionate, and open-minded person, and I am grateful for that. I still consume some animal products, and that is a recent choice I’ve had to make because of health problems that I was faicing while living a vegan lifestyle. Though veganism may not be best suited for everyone, living a life of awareness and compassion, and making appropriate decisions, is. Happy Earth Day!

    We try to eat local organicly grown foods-if it’s not local it’s organic/natural. We recycle as best we can. We live 20 miles from the “City” and car pool with other families as often as possible. When we’re in the city we try to get done as much as we need to avoid multiple trips.
    LOVE the picnic ideas. My son begins playing in basketball tournaments this summer. We decided to picnic most of the meals/treats for 2 reasons #1: I know they are eating healthy body nurishing foods-so much better than concession stand eating-yuck!, #2: save $

    I’ve stopped buying bottled water regularly. I use a filter on the kitchen faucet. When we picnic, I take melamine dishes and our utensils instead of taking plastics.

    How I try to be kind to the earth: I keep my thermastat low low low in the Winter and high in the Summer, I recycle everything, I bring my own bags to the grocery store, I fill up my own SS water bottle instead of buying plastics, I also combine all my errands and use cruise control whenever possible too.

    Hi Sommer,
    I live within a mile of Greenbelt, Md., named so to keep our earth green. Close to the nations capitol there is a lot of traffic but there are lots of bike trails for bike enthusiasts and our metro system is pretty comprehensive so that helps cut down on traffic and polution. I like to save shopping bags for when I walk the dog in the evenings. I also recycle, and plant lettuce, pepper and tomatoe plants in my back yard. And in the interest of saving resources and the wasteful purchase of cans or bottles, I brew my own beer and grow hops for it also. I also like to cook and just ran across this page today, good stuff! I like what I see.

I’m always putting out crackers with fresh mozz. fresh basil from my herb garden drizzled in EVOO and a tad bit of Bal. Vinegar. I will love it forever, BUT I’m crazy about goat cheese and berries, so WAA-LA!!
    Oh, and I don’t owe a car yet here in Nashville, I’m holding out. I do however own a very nice bycycle that I ride allll over the Greenway trail. And when in Chicago, I only walk or take the train. Happy Be-lated Earth Day Sommer!
