Anna Jones’ quick and easy vegetable traybake recipes

Since having my little boy, it’s been hard to find time. No more long evenings in the kitchen: for now, my cooking is sandwiched into a neat window of time before baths and stories. I’ve rediscovered the joy of one pan or one-pot meals – dinners laid thoughtfully into a tray and left to roast and burnish. Sourdough Starter.

Basic Pickling Liquid - Recipe by Kirsten Dixon

I wanted to find some nice herbs, which the market was a little light on, but I brought home some incredibly beautiful red and yellow bulb onions, beets, and carrots. Even though I didn’t need them, I threw in some red potatoes, black currants, and some peas. I realized right away I had impulse-purchased too much produce for the week and I would have to preserve some of it. This time of year, there are always big displays of canning jars on grocery shelves and I wonder where all those hundreds of glass jars end up.

Moroccan Lentil and Vegetable Stew. I get a lot of emails from readers with recipe suggestions and I love them all, but don’t get the opportunity to make many of them.

Moroccan Lentil and Vegetable Stew

Every once in a while, though, an email comes through with a recipe that happens to be exactly what I’m in the mood for eating that week. That’s what happened when I got an email from Rachel with a link to this amazing Moroccan Lentil and Chickpea Soup from The first thing that I noticed is that it has almost the same blend of warm and intoxicating spices that makes my Yellow Jasmine Rice so irresistible. Minimalistbaker. Flushable Cat Litter. Flushable cat litter is just one of the many types of cat litter available today, and it is an excellent option for cat owners that are concerned about the environment and wish to avoid filling their rubbish bins with bags of soiled litter.

Flushable Cat Litter

Traditional cat litter is made of clay, which has to be disposed with the weekly rubbish as it forms a very hard, cement like constitution in water. This means that traditional clay litter cannot be flushed down the toilet as it would clog up the pipes and systems, so it needs to be disposed of in landfill where it can remain for a very long time. This means that although traditional cat litter is more economical than most other types of cat litter, many pet owners are turning to solutions such as flushable cat litter which are more environmentally friendly.

There are flushable cat litter options available on the market and some of the recommended brands are: The World’s Best Cat Litter £12.99 (6.35kg) 100 Steps to a Plastic-Free Life » My Plastic-free Life. We have some great bulk food stores here in the Bay Area (Rainbow, Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, for example) and I can get almost all dry foods as well as some personal care products from the bulk bins.

100 Steps to a Plastic-Free Life » My Plastic-free Life

These foods include rice and other grains, pasta, beans (learning to cook dried beans is an important part of plastic-free living), seeds, nuts, all kinds of flour, baking soda and other dry baking ingredients, cereal and granola, pretzels and chips, some candy, tofu, oils, nut butters, olives, herbs, tea & coffee, and more things than I can think of right now. The key is bringing my own reusable bags and containers with me to the store. You can carry the same kind of cotton bags for bulk purchases as for produce (see above.) Glass jars and other containers work great as well. MsMarmiteLover: Mini cheddars for lunchboxes.

Riley Pearson, 6 years old, was sent home from school because his parents put a packet of mini-cheddars in his lunchbox. The school has set up a healthy eating policy for lunchboxes and "Chocolate, sweets, crisps and fizzy drinks are not allowed. If your child's lunchbox is unhealthy and unbalanced they will be provided with a school lunch for which you will be charged. " The parents complained and called the media, now the school have expelled Riley and his four year old brother. It seems to me that another approach could have been taken: the school could have gathered together parents and children to discuss healthy eating. They could have set up cooking classes so that pupils could make their own lunch box foods. DIY Deodorant - The Zero-Waste Chef. Unlike my other recipes, you don’t actually eat this one. But because I make my deodorant (mostly) out of food ingredients and several people have asked me how I do it, I thought I would go ahead and post the recipe on this food blog.

Eleanor Williamson continues her journey towards becoming plastic free with a simple homemade, plastic free yoghurt recipe...

Yoghurt is a big deal in our household and the kids barely go a day without it. So when I decided to go plastic free the issue of plastic yoghurt pots quickly became a big one! I managed to find one company that use glass pots. However, the yoghurt is very expensive, has a plastic lid and is not locally produced. It also seems a bit wrong to be filling up our recycling bin with pretty glass jars that have been used once (and endlessly upcycling them into things that we don't want or need didn't seem to be the answer either).
