Two foods I absolutely love are granola and popcorn. The good news is that they can easily be made in a low-waste way at home. Woohoo!
Sharing a little low-waste snack recipe today that I just can’t get enough of: roasted chickpeas. I loooove chickpeas, and this snack is perfect for when you want something savoury and crunchy, a bit like potato chips. They’re also great for entertaining, or as a topping on salads.
December 5 is World Soil Day. What does this mean, and why should we care about soil health? It’s a lot more important that you might think! Here, I’m delighted to share with you an interview with Holly Rose. She’s an environmentalist, a writer, and a regenerative agriculture advocate from whom I have learned so much since first following her blog and Instagram. If you haven’t heard of her or regenerative agriculture before, you’re in for a treat! I sincerely hope you enjoy this interview, and I highly recommend following her online to learn much, much more.
Today is World Food Day. I can’t think of many issues more important than food. Food is political, powerful, and even more of a concern in a warming planet. Here are some of the many action items when it comes to food issues, as well as fantastic people to learn more from.
I’m absolutely delighted to share my interview with famed foodie and blogger Anne-Marie Bonneau, also known as the Zero Waste Chef. On her blog and Instagram, she shares how her family lives Zero Waste, while creating the most delicious meals. (I tried to tell her that she’s a legend in the Zero Waste world. However, as you’ll see, she’s very humble and doesn’t believe me.)
Although I’m far from a gourmet chef, my own Zero Waste journey has me experimenting in the kitchen more often, batch cooking and baking for the week ahead, and making more from scratch. Needless to say, I’m very inspired by Anne-Marie!
Her motto and food rules are: “No packaging. Nothing processed. No waste.” Sounds intimidating? Her joyful personality and positive energy will change your mind! Here’s what she had to say about how busy families can join the Zero Waste movement, how to get your kids into the kitchen, and why we should have hope for the future.
