#ad made these broccoli fritters the other day using the brocolli stems that i’d normally throw out and was pretty darn pleased with the result (rough recipe below). apparently the broccoli stems actually contain more calcium, iron, and vitamin c than the florets, plus, by using the stems you can save money by making your produce last longer. i’ve been participating in @imperfectproduce’s #newyearnowaste challenge and am loving how inspired i feel to be more mindful of my impact. they’ve got a really great list of simple suggestions to help reduce waste in 2018 and a fun competition going for free produce and other goodies. be sure to check it out! _________________ broccoli stem fritters makes 8-10 ingredients 3 broccoli stems, grated 2 eggs 1/4 cup chickpea flour juice from 1/2 lemon chopped cilantro salt and pepper red pepper flakes avocado oil for frying procedure preheat the oven to 350f. combine everything in a medium bowl and mix well. heat a few glugs of oil in a skillet over medium high. add heaping spoonfuls of the batter to the oil and fry until golden brown. transfer to a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. serve with caesar dressing for dipping.

Ahh... #mealprepmonday is back with a vengeance 😅 aside from packing lunches for the week, i plan to have plenty of stuff prepped in the fridge so meals can come together nice & quick! i also started a story highlight on my profile called “mealprep” & i’ll continue adding to it! ••• here’s a few of my staples (especially right now while they’re in season!) i also pack everything in reusable tupperware containers because we all need to be more conscious of our effect on the environment! #newyearnowaste @imperfectproduce ••• brussels: steam first ~3-5 minutes, coat with avocado oil, s/p, garlic powder, & sometimes i’ll add nutritional yeast too. cook on 425°f until super well done. (my huge ones [swipe] were about 40 minutes, the small ones about 25). delicata & kabocha: scoop out the guts, coat with coconut oil, pink salt, & cinnamon. cook on 425°f about 40 minutes. • • • #intuitiveeating #nutrition #healthy #squash #rd2be #edsoldier #wholefoods #feedyourresolution #eeeeeats #realfood #cleaneating #whole30 #instafood #edrecovery #food #recovery #plantbased #fitness #feedfeed #healthyfood #balance #recipe #mealprep #buzzfeedfood #glutenfree #paleo #strongnotskinny #foodisfuel

Apple nacho yogurt bowl 🤤 the breakfast that has been on repeat every morning here because it’s so easy and simple to make and all of the ingredients you can shop for once, and they last multiple days. 🙌🏻 @nancysyogurt probiotic yogurt topped with a peeled and sliced fuji apple, fresh organic raspberries and @kitchfix granola with a cinnamon sprinkle. 🍎 use the apple like a chip and dip into the yogurt, then dip into the granola, and then top with a raspberry and extra granola chunks👌🏻 spoon all the leftover yogurt and granola at the bottom of the bowl until you lick the bowl clean 😋 your belly will thank you for nourishing it first thing in the morning! #probiotics #healthybreakfast . . . . . #yogurtbowl #rachleats #proteinbreakfast #healthybreakfastideas #foodmatters #morningfuel #newyearnowaste #collagencrew #eathealthy #eatwell #eatright #goodeats #rachleats #eatrealfood #happytummy #foodisfuel #iamwellandgood #mindbodygram #damnthatsdelish #iinhealthcoach #noleftovers #whatveganseat #goodmoodfood #integrativenutrition #lifestyleblogger #eatrealfood #cleaneighteen

As part of the @imperfectproduce #newyearnowaste challenge, i'm trying to avoid throwing out all the random slices of cut-up fruit that my kids don't finish eating. instead, i gather the odds and ends in a sealable container in the refrigerator, and every few days turn them into apple-pear-whatever's-leftover-sauce.⠀ ⠀ because i'm sure you know the story: the apple slices come home in the lunchbox, uneaten; your kids are starving but when you deliver the cut-up pear they are now full; or last week they loved persimmons, and this week when you buy pounds of them they suddenly don't like them anymore.⠀ ⠀ my kids may be fickle when it comes to their fruit but one thing they consistently love is applesauce. so i take their leftover fruit slices, and slice up whatever other fruit i've got that is nearing its expiration date, or is a little too soft or a little too dry to eat fresh. i put it all in a microwave-safe bowl and zap it for about 3-6 minutes (depending on the size of the pieces) until soft, then blend it in my @vitamix. i'm sure any food processor or blender would do the trick. (be careful not to blend it too long or your applesauce will become apple juice!).⠀ ⠀ of course apples work great here, but so do pears and persimmons. i will also squeeze leftover citrus into the mix if i've got it. and it's naturally sweet enough that you don't need to add anything else.⠀ ⠀ i'll serve it plain, or with a little cut up fresh fruit on top, or over greek yogurt, or mixed into oatmeal. lots of options here.⠀ ⠀ one more thing: i've said it before but i'll say it again... i ❤️ my @imperfectproduce box. if you haven't tried it please do! organic, local produce (that would otherwise go to waste) delivered to your doorstep. win-win-win. ✔️✔️✔️⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #dailyfoodfeed #healthyish #healthyhabits #healthyfamily #foodforkids #healthykids #produceforkids #eattherainbow #healthykids #feedfeed #realsimple #thenewhealthy #wholefoodfaves #foodblogfeed #healthyliving #healthyeats #healthyrecipes #eatwell #easyrecipes #kidfriendly #realfood #vegan #paleo #glutenfree #vegan #imperfectproduce #nowaste #foodwaste #savetheuglies

#justdoitjanuary - tip 11: prep like a boss! - to be a girl boss, we all need to do the prep work. to prevent food waste, a little bit of prep work goes a long way! - i spend 30 minutes chopping up my leafy greens and other vegetables whenever i receive my @imperfectproduce delivery to ensure food doesn’t go to waste. i use my reusable airtight containers to prevent food from spoiling and add the chopped veggies to my meals during the week. - a little bit of prep work goes a long way! why not apply your work skills to your kitchen to prevent food waste? #newyearnowaste

Kicking this #meatlessmonday off with a versatile hearty winter salad on the blog. we made this at thanksgiving and i’ve since replicated it with a few variations at home. this particular version {link in bio for the full how to on almonds & asana} includes @imperfectproduce butternut squash and leftover shaved asparagus from a recent soup recipe. . . . . i felt like this was the perfect dish to share for today’s #newyearnowaste tip of taking one day a week to cut out animal protein, aka meatless monday. it’s much easier to cut meat out from your life when you do it, at least to start, in moderation and in some sort of fun routine. meatless monday gives you a chance to get creative on sunday about how to best use your produce for creating delicious bountiful plant based meals. who else has a good meatless monday recipe?! would love to know!! . . . . if you’re looking to win prizes from @imperfectproduce during this awesome campaign just upload your photo and tag them with the hashtag - then tag me too so i can see!! #kalesalad #wintersalad #vegan

I have a (relatively) new rule for things that enter my home. whether it be a consumable product or a physical item that will stay with us for a long period of time, everything has to have at least 2 functions. as you may or may not know i’m a huge lover and subscriber to @imperfectproduce 🤗 about a month ago i received an abundance of oranges and grapefruits in my weekly box and i knew there was no way our family would eat them during the week ahead. so, i froze the juice to use for smoothies and cut up the peels to use for cleaning! today i’m so excited to open these cans and whip up some cleaning sprays!! i’ll be adding half of the vinegar solution to my spray bottle, and then topping it up with water! excited to see the results! how is your day going?!

Who doesn’t love fresh bread? totally makes sense, of course, to use reusable bags for your food shopping and trips to the farmer’s market, but how do you carry and store your baguette’s? i used to have it hanging out of a short canvas bag and always getting caught on stuff or actually falling out. and i always felt the need to immediately use the bread as i didn’t know where to keep it due to it’s shape. enter the àplat bread bag! this beautiful bag holds two 🥖 perfectly. this bag is perfect for both carrying and storing your longer breads. i didn’t know bread is best when stored in organic cotton. it makes a difference and my bread behaves on my way home from the market! this line of cotton bags can be washed and reused for a long time. please choose reusable bags for your shopping! thanks to @imperfectproduce for creating the #newyearnowaste challenge and to @aplatsf for making beautiful, reusable bags. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #newyearnowaste #nowaste #bread #food #breadstorage #carryingbread #farmersmarket #freshbread #baguette #frenchbread #reusebags #cottonbags #canvasbags #cottontote #foodbag #reuse #keepbreadfresh #carrybread

I wish i had learned of this amazing product sooner: stasher!!! @stasherbag made an incredible plastic-free solution to getting off of disposable plastic bags. you can heat, store, and freeze with these beauties!!!! they are made of silicone and will last a long time. dishwasher safe and super easy to seal. i love that the material is much stronger than a sandwich or snack plastic bag, so i can just throw it in my bag and go! it keeps my food super fresh and when i freeze food in them, i don’t get that annoying frost ice stuff on my food. stasher’s are easy to use and super convenient, but more importantly, they are reusable!!! i speak for myself that i was using too many plastic disposable bags. i do wash them out and reuse them as long as i can, but i was still using too many and eventually discarding them. there is too much plastic waste in the world and we need to cut down on our need for disposable plastic as it is destroying the world’s oceans! this is a non-toxic solution that improves on the “baggie” experience and is good for our world. win-win 🙌 thank you @imperfectproduce for creating the #newyearnowaste challenge and to @stasherbag for making a product that rocks!!! (ps...and, for being a women-owned company!!!) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #newyearnowaste #nowaste #plasticfree #noplastic #plasticalternative #food #freshfood #silicone #reusable #reusablebags #foodstorage #reusablefoodpouch #stayorganized #neat #writeonme #savetheocean #ocean #noplasticintheocean #dobetter

#repost @foodandfearless with @get_repost ・・・ sustainability & fighting food waste are long-time passions of mine. one of the easiest ways we can be more sustainable is by making small changes right in our kitchens! ♻️ - here are a few of my fave environmentally-friendly, food-related things: 🌎 - • reusable straws - this may seem small, but opting out of plastic straws will begin to add up! • reusable water bottles - why spend $ on bottled water, when water is *free*?! • food storage containers - just as easy (if not easier) than foil/cling wrap/plastic baggies for saving leftovers. • old pb/pasta jars: perfect for storing pencils, odds&ends, and food! • @stasherbag: these are a bit of a financial investment, i’ll be honest. however, they are reusable (dishwasher-safe), unlike plastic baggies which are one&done (literally throwing $ into the trash) 💸 - this post was inspired by @imperfectproduce’s #newyearnowaste campaign! more like this hopefully to come 🤞🏼 - how do you increase sustainability in your kitchen??! comment below 💌 #foodandfearless

We had lunch brought in today at work which was pre-announced. knowing there would only be plastic silverware and paper/plastic plates provided i planned ahead and brought my own! . . i may have received a few questions from co-workers asking if i brought my own plate and i replied “yes, i’m trying to reduce my waste!” and while they may have laughed eating greasy pizza off a ceramic plate was so much tastier 🍕🍕🍕 . . #newyearnowaste #goingzerowaste #bringyourown #zerowaste #lunchtime #silverware #fiestaware #reuse #notrash #plasticfreefriday #plasticfree

Do you have a compost bin? living in the city, i was completely intimated by the idea of keeping a compost bin on our counter and then figuring out what to do with the contents when we didn't have our own yard in which to use it. for those who are new here, we lived in the heart of downtown chicago until about a year and a half ago. __ now that we have a yard and a garden, we have a small stainless steel container (with compostable bags and a charcoal filter on the inside to prevent smells from leeching into our kitchen) to hold food scraps until i bring them out to our garden compost pile every few days. __ we, collectively, produce so much food waste and composting food scraps makes a big impact on reduction of that waste. not only does composting reduce waste, but it also closes the loop and turns waste into fertile soil for new gardens. __ despite being initially intimidated, composting has proven to be really easy and pretty low maintenance. i love having a place to collect food scraps while i'm cooking. it's also pretty neat to teach the boys about the food cycle as they watch items grow in our garden and see the transformation of our food scraps into new soil. __ if you haven't tried composting, i definitely recommend it. it might be one of the easiest and most impactful #familiesdozerowaste ideas. if you don't have a yard, check out @nearowaste who lives in an apartment and recently purchased 1,000 worms for a new counter top bin that houses the full cycle of compost transformation (unlike mine where most of the work is done in the pile in my backyard). if you don't have a compost bin, what's giving you pause? and if you do compost, share your tips on what makes it easy and works for you!

Today as i join (late) the #cleanmiami climate resilience leadership training with @catalystmiami (thanks to @thechildhoodnatureproject 🤗) i started going through all the little things we’ve been trying to do at home to offset our environmental impact. i shared a list of things and places that can be done rightly so. i share a few links of great info from @thenewtropic @recyclenation and @publix. here’s something you could do now and i ask you to learn more on my blog and that is to visit @miamidadecnty recycling guideline- things like plastic yogurt cups, plastic bags and egg cartons do not go on curbside residential bins. if you’re in a different county it might be different, but i’m not, so. 😊 please share! here we are reusing some @kitehillfoods cups aiming for #newyearnowaste ————————————— #consciousmiami #miamilife #miami #miamirecycle #recyclemiami #cleanmiami #environment #cleancity #consciouslifestyle #zerowaste #zerowastemiami #zerowasteliving #zerowastejourney #journeytozerowaste #bezero #bezerowaste #livelikeyoulivehere

No green thumb? no sunlight? no problem!!! i am a big believer in urban home gardens. in dc, i utilized my balcony space to grow tomatoes, peppers, and lots of herbs. we had great sunlight there and my urban garden was happy. now, i live in san francisco and my place has virtually no sunlight. i thought growing healthy food for me in this setting would not be possible. enter @hamama_greens microgreens growing kit! literally included is everything you need to grow a variety of healthy microgreens in your home! you only water it one time and the greens do not require direct sunlight!!!! that means it is easy to grow healthy food in the home! yes!!!! just started growing the spring mix microgreens today. in 10 days i will post the harvest! thank you so much to @imperfectproduce for creating the #newyearnowaste challenge and to @hamama_greens for creating an easy-to-do healthy home process for urban gardening!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #food #nofoodwaste #uglyproduce #urbangardening #urbangarden #insidegarden #nodirt #nosunlight #seeds #microgreens #newyearnowaste #grow #healthy #homegrown #eatright #taste #garnish #salad #easygardening #nohassle #easy #nowaste #compost #compostable #happy #sanfrancisco
