Less is more

ECO123 – Summer edition #18 : How do we want to live?

My article: “LESS IS MORE”
Packaging-free vegan summer menu for yoghurt lovers…

Menu de verão vegano e sem desperdício de embalagens para amantes de iogurte. Neste menu de verão vegano, tive especial atenção no uso de ingredientes que se podem comprar em embalagens retornáveis. O objetivo é transmitir ideias que, a longo prazo, nos possibilitem evitar lixo. O ingrediente principal é iogurte vegetal feito em casa. 

In this summer menu, I have paid attention as far as possible to the use of ingredients that can be purchased without disposable packaging. The aim is to pass on ideas about ways to avoid unnecessary rubbish in the long term.
The main ingredient is plant-based, home-made yoghurt, which is a common thread running through my menu planning.It all starts with the production of one’s own plant milk. We could buy milk of course, but in a household that consumes milk daily too much unnecessary plastic or Tetrapak cartons accumulate.
Producing it oneself takes more time, but it’s cheaper, gives the whole family a lot of pleasure and is beneficial for our environment and our health.
So, everything starts with a handful of selected organically grown seeds, best of all from the organic farmer next door..
