Here's a trick for extending the life of your beeswax wraps. My @onatahnewzealand beeswax wraps had been getting some thorough use and weren't looking very photogenic (second photo). I chucked it in the oven on a low heat for a few minutes and voila! Good as new again. I'm using my beeswax wraps to cover my sourdough starter.
Today is a good day to crack in to our office kombucha. I started this ferment last week, and its timing is perfect as we need a mood lifter today 💚 #changethegovernment #greattogether
The next project/ stage of my sustainable living journey has arrived! Check out my latest blog post for more info 🏡
Indian snacks from Bin Inn Takanini. Wasabi peas and bhudja mix, yum! Purchased from the bulk bins in my own jars.
I left a kombucha SCOBY is my letterbox yesterday for @bri.dimattina and them came home to this massive bag of goodies from her garden! I'm pretty excited about that fennel. The silberbeet is massive by the way, I'm thinking pesto might be in the making... Got to love the #sharingeconomy. Someone else I gave a SCOBY to gave me a jar of home picked olives. I really don't expect anything in return as I just want someone to find use in my surplus SCOBY, so this was super generous 💚
Just got back from my sweet as overnight hiking trip and went straight to the @nzgreenparty Maungakiekie Campaign Launch. I'm super lucky to have @chloe.swarbrick as my electoral candidate. Here I am posing with my tote bag I made out of an op shop pillow case, @ashholwell showed me how to screenprint it so it's now emblazoned with a big green heart 💚 (I'm wearing secondhand as usual)
Hiking food! I'm going bush this weekend, this is my tramping food, breakfast (porridge), lunch (homemade sourdough), snacks, and dinner (vegetarian burgers). Everything was purchased plastic free, and because with tramping I have to carry it all, it's being packed in reusable plastic containers and a reused ziploc bag.
This is legit a corner of my desk at work. Tea: loose leaf tea brews in my T2 flask (from my friend @whatcourtneydid) and served in a secondhand mug I picked up at an op shop on my lunch break. SCOBY's sit on my desk waiting to get rehomed. Spare container & an old @keepcup at the back for takeaway treats. A jar of vege scraps: we have a @wecompost bin at work but I collect the vege scraps from Souper Wednesday to make in to stock for next Wednesday's soup day. Nice Tobe working in an office that embraces my quirky habits!
Pantry staple stock up (plus some treats) from @bin_inn_onehunga. I love chocolate mint balls so was pretty happy to see my favorite bulk store now stocks them. Bought some wholemeal flour, 1kg of chickpeas, peanut butter, cashews, black tea, peanuts, mint choc balls, pinto beans, yogurt buttons (for baking), citric acid and rice bran oil. Total cost $48, most expensive thing being my chocolate fix.
