Giving up steamable vegetables

Yes ma’am. As convenient as they are, I just could not deal with all the excess plastic.

Since 2010, I am now buying (or growing) my own veggies and cooking them either in the crock pot or on the stove or in the oven. It takes a few more minutes, but it’s worth it. One more thing I’ve given up, one less thing in the trashcan!

Score!
(Granted, I have no life anymore and spend all my time in the kitchen or the garden and feel like I’ve turned into my grandma, but score anyway!)

  1. Those look like the makings of some yummy fries!

  2. Good for you – I loved my vegie patch when I lived at my parents. At least my new apartment has more light, so maybe my housewarming party will provide me with some herbs to grow?

  3. Wow good on you. I grow most of my own food too though I still buy some food for the freezer. Might have to go back to tinned peas etc. Thanks for the push. Mx

  4. Gardening is the perfect zero waste – anything that we don’t consume gets composted. Win, win.

  5. I really should learn to do more with fresh vegetables. They seem like such a hassle though. We don’t create much garbage so I don’t feel too bad about using some packaged stuff.
