You are what you eat, and how you live can also be a reflection of your environmental fitness.
For the past six years on an annual basis, Cooking Light magazine has built what they’ve named FitHouses model homes in different cities across America that can inspire how you live, a home renovation project or even influence your next home purchase.
This year’s FitHouse, built in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, opened June 2nd and is one of the first homes to conform to the city’s proposed residential green building standards. The house includes environmentally-sound materials, energy-saving appliances and embodies wellness in both form and function.
During the next three months when the model home is open to the public, 20,000 people are expected to visit, and you can be sure I’ll be one of them. I have a kitchen renovation underway, so I’m curious to see how I can combine my zest for healthy living with my love of cooking and eating. I’ll let you know what I learn.
