Innblástur að ruslminni lífsstíl

Innblástur að ruslminni lífsstíl

Myndin er í eigu A considered life

Ég hef mjög gaman af því að fylgja instagram aðgöngum þar sem einblýnt er á ruslminni lífsstíl með ráðum og fallegum myndum. Þetta veitir mér gífurlegan innblástur og heldur mér “peppaðri” í að halda áfram að gera mitt besta auk þess að gefa mér oft hugmyndir sem mér datt ekki í hug. Eins og með allt annað þá getur verið vinna að halda þessu við svo það hjálpar mikið að fylgjast með fleirum í svipuðum hugleiðingum og ræða jafnvel saman. Ég hef aðeins verið að setja slíkar myndir af og til á mitt instagram og hef verið að hugsa að gera meira af því en úrvalið og aðgengið að ruslminni matvöru sem dæmi er töluvert misjafnt eftir löndum. Það getur því verið afskaplega hjálplegt að fylgjast með hvar er hægt að nálgast slíka þjónustu og hvernig.

Ég fer reglulega að versla í Matarbúri Kaju (sirka annan hvern mánuð) þar sem ég fylli á birgðir mínar af þurrvöru svo sem baunum, hnetum, fræjum og kornvöru. Ég átti enn nóg til af kjúklingabaunum, hrísgrjónum, quinoa og nýrnabaunum en mig bráðvantaði linsubaunir (er með smá æði fyrir linsubauna dahl þessa dagana). Ég skrapp því seinustu helgi og verslaði inn bæði grænar og rauðar linsubaunir, hamp fræ, valhnetur (mjög góð uppspretta af omega-3) og fyllti á uppáhalds kryddið mitt, ítalska kryddblöndu.

Brauð og co hófu nýlega að selja dásamlega grænkeravæna kanil snúða. Þeir eru SVO góðir, ég mæli innilega með að smakka þá ef þið eruð ekki búin að því. Ég mætti með bómullarpoka sem ég fékk að setja snúðana í án minnsta vandamála, en einnig hef ég mætt með poka í fleiri bakarí og er almennt tekið vel í það.

Ég viðurkenni að það er ekki mikil löngun í ís þessa dagana í frostinu en ég hef þó verið reglulegur viðskiptavinur hjá Brynju ís eftir að þau hófu að selja æðislegan grænkeravænan kókos ís. Hann minnir á rjómaís og hentar mjög vel í bragðarref sem ég fæ mér með grænkeravænu kökudegi, hnetusmjöri og lakkrískurli. Um daginn ákvað ég að prófa að mæta með bambus kaffimálið mitt og var mjög vel tekið í það. Bambusmálið hentaði fullkomlega í lítinn bragðarref og hafa nokkrir vinir mínir mætt með eigin mál til Brynju eftir þetta.

Eitt af mínum uppáhalds leiðum til þess að skapa minna rusl er að taka alltaf nesti með í vinnuna. Einnig gerði ég það sama þegar ég stundaði nám. Auðvitað koma dagar þar sem eitthvað kemur upp á, ég náði ekki að undirbúa nesti eða er á hraðferð. Slíkt gerist. Ég hef þó gert þetta nógu lengi til þess að koma þessu í vana og langflesta daga gengur þetta upp. Með því að taka með mér nesti dreg ég úr þeim líkum að þurfa að hoppa út í búð eða á skyndibitastað og kaupa eitthvað tilbúið sem er langt oftast í umbúðum. Veskið verður einnig mjög þakklátt.

Ég er ekki með fleiri nýlegar myndir eins og er svo ég ætla að setja inn myndir frá nokkrum aðgöngum sem ég hef gaman af.

Thinking about reducing waste and avoiding plastic can be really overwhelming. Not knowing where to start can be a difficult hurdle to overcome. My advice? Keep it simple. Start with an easy habit shift like replacing disposables with reusables. . Whenever you go shopping, pack your bag with the things that will help you avoid plastics and disposables: tote bags for carrying your shopping, produce bags for buying loose fruit and veg, containers like jars or tins for lunch and snacks, reusable cutlery, washable napkins, and metal straws to avoid single-use items, and a water bottle or reusable cup for drinks. . You most likely already have these items at home. It just takes a little practice to get into the habit of using them regularly, and once you do you'll significantly decrease the amount of waste you create 🙏✨

Weekly meal prep!! One of my goals is to be way more intentional when it comes to work life blend. I'm the kind of person that is so consumed with working, I forget to eat… . . Like I think I'm some super human that can just go all day without food and then 7pm hits and of course IM STARVING. . . So then I consider getting pizza cuz I don't have the energy to cook… And I mean… Pizza. 🍕 I'm no where near perfect, but I'm really working on building healthier habits. . . Like learning that no matter how many times I say I'll workout later in the day – it NEVER happens. I have to go first thing before I check a single email, or I just won't do it. Nala and I went on our first jog of the year this morning and it feels so good knowing breakfast is practically ready for me! . . My secret to successful meal planning is prepping ingredients NOT meals. I'm working on a huge resource for mastering meal prep to get healthy, easy, zero waste meals on the table FAST. Got any questions? Also, we've prepped together in stories before. Would you like to prep with me? . . Photo featuring the cutest photo bomber in the world and the almond milk I spilled all over the counter when @nbcnightlynews came over. So. Graceful. #GoingZeroWaste

What's your favorite Thanksgiving side? Dressing HANDS down is the best. But, also green bean casserole and my roasted vegetable medley are close seconds…. I've got 10 lbs of plastic-free produce and I'm so ready for Thursday. 💪 . There's nothing that brings my heart more joy than throwing a dinner party. I was throwing dinner parties in highschool. Coincidentally, I did not have a lot of friends… But damn we were a sophisticated crew. Forty five at heart since 1995. . Since my family is omnivore, I did buy a turkey which I was able to get in my own container. I'm still in shock. The guys behind the counter thought I was a little nutty. But, it did not stop them from flirting. Sometimes, I wonder if being a young, fairly attractive female helps me get things to go in my own my container…. #onlytimewilltell . #goingzerowaste #gzwproduce . . . #plasticfree #sustainableliving #sustainability #gogreen #ecofriendly #f52grams #imsomartha #zerowaste #organicfood #wellnessjourney #iamwellandgood #organicliving

We usually only refill dry goods every 4-8 weeks. But this time we went for an in-between visit to the #zerowaste shop because we ran out of vitamin B12. This caused a lot of misunderstandings in my story (sorry about that!) bc many followers thought they sold loose B12. I'm sorry to say this, but as far as I know, there is no way to get package-free supplements. • If you're vegan 🐷🐶💕🌱 you should know that supplementing vitamin B12 is vital!! In North America, a lot "typical" vegan products like mylks and nutritional yeast are fortified with B12 (and/or other vitamins or minerals). In Germany, many vegans get their vitamin B12 from a toothpaste 🦷 popular among vegans or supplements. • We have tried to keep the waste minimal when buying supplements. We always try to look for the best concentration-to(plastic)packaging ratio. 😝 • The first kind we bought were high-concentration lozenges in a small plastic bottle that lasted the two of us about a year. (I think the brand was called Jarrow?) We had seen B12 in small glass jars with plastic lids in the store. But doing the math we realized the two of us would need 8 of those bottles a year–creating almost the same amount of plastic waste with the glass jars on top of that. • The second kind we got were also lozenges, but sold in a blue glass jar with a metal lid that lasted us about half a year. (I have unfortunately forgotten the name of the brand, but they were sold in every health food store we went to in Vancouver. It's a company based in Richmond, BC.) • And this is going to be the 3rd kind of B12 for us! A tincture? You are supposed to take 5 drops a day, and the bottle will last the two of us 175 days (almost 6 months), and can obviously be reused. It's made in Germany, which is definitely a plus because it's almost local!

I definitely haven’t been consciously living a low waste lifestyle as long as others, but I’ve realised that I’ve probably been at it longer than I thought. I bought a reusable coffee cup about 3 years ago! But I forgot that damn cup frequently & still produced a sh*tload of rubbish. 😅 It wasn’t until the end of 2017 that I first tried the menstrual cup & realised I wanted to try & reduce the amount of waste I produced. If I’d “mastered” the menstrual cup, surely I could try & remember my shopping bags when I went grocery shopping? 🌏 It took months before I remembered them on a consistent basis. When I did I ventured into reusable produce bags. Not long after, I started recycling my soft plastics at Redcycle & going to my community compost. It was some time later that I made the step to seek out bulk food items nearby. I never did everything all at once. I never threw out everything which didn’t fit the aesthetic. I still have plastic containers which I use to hold pantry food. I still have plastic razors that I need to use up. I’ve been reusing the same plastic ziplock bags for over a year now! ♻️ 3 years ago the seed was planted. It might seem small at the beginning & it might take a long time to grow – but it’s all about taking that first step. 💪🏽 Here are some of the things that helped me reduced my waste (yup, that’s right “reduced” – I still produce waste!): > reusable coffee cup (although I drink most of my coffee at home to save money) > menstrual cup > water bottle (I’m lucky & have access to clean tap water) > meal prepping (I can “control” the waste I produce) > bringing my own fork & spoon (I use bamboo for travelling) > reusable napkin > bringing a container when going out to dinner (for leftovers) > making own lip balm & body butter > reusable shopping & produce bags > buying fresh produce without packaging > where possible, buying pantry items in bulk > composting bin ♻️ Most of my waste at the beginning was around food, packaging & plastic bags. So, I worked on that first. But my progress has definitely been incremental & I think that’s the most achievable way to sustain a new lifestyle – at least for me. 🌏 What about yourself? #thefirststep

I’ve tried freeze herbs 🌿 and it works amazingly!! 🤗🤗 It is especially great when you buy a bunch of fresh herbs and you can’t use up all of them. This way it doesn’t go to waste and you have prepared all natural herb mixture. I tried fresh garlic and rosemary. 😉 Unfortunately, soft herbs such as mint, basil, lemon verbena, and cilantro are usually added raw to a dish, and they don't respond as well to this kind of preserving. (I didn’t have time to take pictures, the photos are from thekitchn.com) —————————————— Here is the method: 1. Choose firm, fresh herbs, ideally from the market or your own garden. 2. If you wish, you can chop them fine. Or leave them in larger sprigs and leaves. On the pictures: rosemary, fennel stalk, sage, and oregano. 3. Pack the wells of ice cube trays about 2/3 full of herbs. 4. You can mix up the herbs, too; think about freezing a bouquet garni of sage, thyme, and rosemary to add to winter roast chickens and potatoes! 5. Pour extra-virgin olive oil or melted, unsalted butter over the herbs. 6. Freeze overnight. 7. Remove the frozen cubes and store in freezer containers or jars. 8. Don't forget to label each container or jar with the type of herb (and oil) inside! . . . . . . . . #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastehome #zerowastelifestyle #lowimpactmovement #lowimpactliving #thelowimpactmovement #frozenherbs #herbpods #wasteless #lesswaste #zerowasteaustria #freshherbs #igersaustria #igersvienna

Say aloud in a Brad Pitt drawl: “The first rule of food waste is: you do not buy too much food. The second rule of food waste is: you do NOT buy too much food.” – This is my favorite way to store asparagus and celery (it also works really well for fresh basil). Put everything in a jar of water on the kitchen counter. The asparagus and celery stay fresh for well over a week (change the water after five days or so) and the asparagus doubles as a centerpiece 😉 More tips on plastic-free storage of produce from A to Z on my blog.

Don’t call yourself a a zero waster unless you’ve concocted a cleaning solution of vinegar and orange peels. Just kidding! Even though this is a well known recipe in the zero waste community, I’m a first-timer here and, yeah, I can see why it’s coveted. It is an effective disinfectant, uses leftover orange peels, masks the (offending to some) vinegar smell, and costs next to nothing. Dilute it with water and use it as an all-purpose spray. Don’t use it on stone countertops because it can cause etching. I think I’m going to add thyme and rosemary to the next batch or perhaps cloves. Options are endless! 🌱✌️ • #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastefridge #zerowastelifestyle #greenliving #lowwaste #zerowastemovement #zerowastecollective #makelesswaste #sustainableliving #ecoliving #consciousconsumer #lessplasticwaste #yayforearth #refusereducereuserecycle #reducewhatyouproduce #bekind #plantbased #vegan #dobetterbebetter #giveadamn #minimalism #morelifelesswaste #usewhatyouhave

So, I make my veggie stock from veggie scraps. I save the end bits of most veggies and freeze them until I have a full bag of scraps. Then I pour into a big pot and fill it with water, adding on bay leaf, tsp of salt and tsp of whole black pepper. I bring to a boil and let it simmer for 15mins. Bringing it to a boil takes a while (about 45 mins) as the veggie scraps are frozen and it’s a HUGE pot, so I don’t need to simmer it for long 💚 I like storing my veggie stock in two different ways, mostly because I don’t always need “1 Litre” for a recipe. So, normally, I’ll fill up one 1L and freeze it (I only fill it about 3/4 of the way as it will “expand” in the freezer). The second way I like to store my stock is by freezing it in a ice cube tray and placing it into a container once frozen. For me, one tray equals one cup, which is super handy when a recipe only calls for 1 or 2 cups of stock. It means I don’t have to defrost a whole litre to only use a fraction of it 😊 Are there any other ways you like to store your homemade stock? Do you make your own? I tell ya, it’s so cheap and easy! 🌏 #veggiestock #blah
