This is my favourite go-to zero waste meal as of late. If you haven’t tried making socca, I highly recommend it. You mix equal parts water and chickpea flour, a dash of salt and a drizzle of oil. That’s it! Let it sit for at least 30 minutes but longer is better to aid digestion. Then cook the batter In the oven or on the stove top. I use a cast iron pan but a rimmed baking sheet should work too.
I see unpackaged chickpea flour often in my city but if you can’t find them, consider making your own with bulk chickpeas and a good blender to keep it zero waste. It’s gluten-free, vegan and so versatile. You can add herbs and spices for countless savoury versions (I love rosemary) or sweeten it up with cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. For toppings, I just use whatever I have in my fridge. In this case, I had carrot tops (eat every edible part of the plant!) to make the pesto, then topped it with dandelion greens, chives and their blossoms from the garden. Quick, easy, delicious and oh so satisfying. What’s your favourite zero waste/low waste meal?

It’s finally iced coffee season. Took awhile. I’ve been saving some of the leftover coffee from our French press and freezing them. I’ll add these instead of ice so that I don’t dilute my drinks. I’ll also have these on hand for when I want to make 🍌+☕️+🍫+🥜 smoothies.

Coffee is not necessarily the most sustainable drink out there. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news #coffeelovers. It mainly grows in the tropics and its rising demand means more land and rainforests are getting cut down to make room for coffee plantations. Coffee is also a very water intensive process to clean. Coffee is also one of the top traded commodities where exploitation of workers happen often to reduce costs and prices.
.
As with anything, consume in moderation. Opt for coffee that is ethnically sourced. Do your research and don’t waste coffee.

Hello and happy Monday! If you know me then you know I love Monday because Monday means a new week and that is what I love so much. Everything is new and exciting! So on that note, I wrote this blog to inspire a new attitude and mindfulness to how we eat and, after knowing how unhealthy meat consumption is for us and honestly for all life, I gotta wonder why still choose to eat animal products at most every single meal. Think about it: eggs, butter cheese and/or bacon at breakfast, chicken or burger at lunch and for dinner chicken, fish or pork. We eat so much animal products but at that same speed we run around seeking answers that will heal our achy gut, our lethargic bodies, our bad breath and BO, our constipation, our diabetes and our inflamed skin. We wonder why we look and feel awful yet we continue eating foods that suck the life right out of us. This post is not about being vegan. It is about being a more mindful consumer who respects their own body enough to seek optimum health and the health of our kids future, our environment, our animal friends and the desperate people that take on slaughterhouse work. Ask yourself why you are we participating in this mess and what you can do today to eat less meat. Maybe just one meal a day instead of two or three or maybe on weekends you eat no animal products... I believe we intuitively know the answer to a better life and a healthier planet but we move through life in our comfort zone and are not willing to switch up our dietary habits . If this post inspired just one ( or hopefully two) of you to eat less animal products, which have absolutely no nutritional value at all and replace it with life giving nutrient dense living foods instead, well I’ve done my job.
