Last time, we came home from the grocery store with three packaged items (carrots, cucumbers, and chili peppers). This time, we did a little better!
We can buy carrots and cucumbers package-free from a farm boutique. However, since we haven’t had the time to visit a farm, we decided to skip carrots and cucumbers. Instead, we replaced them with other, package-free vegetables, like asparagus, bell peppers, and zucchini.
Speaking about vegetables: another change we’ve recently made is switching lettuce, which is packaged in plastic, for cabbage, which isn’t. It’s similar in most aspects—yet cabbage adds a certain spice.
That leaves the chili peppers. They’re not grown in Sweden and, as a result, are often packaged. Still, they’re an integral ingredient in our homemade pasta sauce. That said, we’re exploring a new option: growing our own. We’re visiting a greenhouse boutique tomorrow, so we’ll have a lot of opportunities to explore it in further detail then!
