Zero Waste Almond Pulp Hummus

Zero Waste Almond Pulp Hummus

Who's up for some zero waste almond pulp hummus? Me! *both hands shoot up*. Seriously, this stuff is delicious and helps prevent a lot of waste. If you've ever made homemade almond milk before, you already know about the leftover pulp. Instead of just tossing it away, why not turn it into hummus? It's garlicky goodness makes the most satisfying snack, plus it's healthy! I love dunking some sliced carrots into it. Yum. 

Zero Waste Toilet Cleaner: Citrus Toilet Fizzies

I've been on the hunt for a zero waste toilet cleaner that was both easy and fun to make. Because, lets face it, who likes cleaning toilets? Well, I finally found a recipe I can wholeheartedly enjoy: Citrus toilet fizzies. They're so simple to make, easy to use and leave behind such a nice smell in the bathroom. Plus, it's really fun to watch them fizz up when you plop them in the toilet. If you love bath bombs, you'll love using these. 

Zero Waste Almond Milk + 5 Ways to Use Almond Pulp

zero waste almond milk

I finally decided to give in and make some zero waste almond milk. Normally, I stick to making cashew milk (it's quicker and doesn't require any straining), but I wanted to switch things up. So, I went to the bulk food store, grabbed some raw almonds, and got busy. This is my first time making almond milk, and I think it turned out pretty good. It does require a lot of patience and straining, but once you taste that almond milk it's like "oh, right, that's why people do this." It's just so good. The only problem is figuring out what to do with the leftover nut pulp. Thankfully, that stuff is pretty useful and there are a bunch of recipes you can use it in, believe it or not. I'm planning on turning mine into almond flour, or turning it into almond pulp hummus. At the end of the article, I talk about more ways to use almond pulp so be sure to check that out. You don't want to go wasting it - it's very useful!

5 Zero Waste Winter Activities to Do This Season

zero waste winter activities

I love living in tune with the seasons, and easily get excited whenever a new one approaches. Summer will always be my favorite season (warm days and delicious fruits abound), but there is a certain charm to winter. The cold has a way of bringing people together, making them reflect on things come to pass. I consider myself a pretty deep person who easily gets lost in her thoughts, so winter really brings out that side of me, and I'm perfectly comfortable with that. I also love that cozy feeling I get while  cuddling up with a good book in my toasty home as it snows outside. It makes me feel safe, warm and protected. Winter brings to mind snowy landscapes, barren trees, hardy vegetables, and warm hot cocoa. There's something about winter that makes you slow down and cherish all you have. It's also not as barren as most people think: I absolutely love winter produce and will definitely be talking about it later on in the post. So, if you want to get into the winter spirit, reduce your waste and live seasonally, you're in the right place. Here are 5 zero waste winter activities to do before the season ends!
