Zero Waste Bliss Balls

Zero Waste Bliss Balls

I'm a sucker for these zero waste bliss balls. Technically, they're basically vegan truffles. But hey, they're delicious either way. I love the fact these are no-bake too. You can make these as a dessert, or as a snack. They're great for either or. I can definitely see kids enjoying these alongside their lunch. They're easily portable: just stick a few of them into an air-tight container. With the school season here again, it's always nice to pack a few (healthy) snacks along the way. Why not some bliss balls? If you don't have kids (like me haha) then you can always just enjoy these on your own, or with friends and family. They're just that versatile. Here's how to make these yummy zero waste bliss balls (and keep them waste free).

Zero Waste Pantry Essentials

Zero Waste Pantry

Anyone looking to have a zero waste kitchen knows they have to tackle their pantry at some point. I'll admit, it's not easy crafting a zero waste pantry. It took a while for me to get my pantry looking the way it does now. Part of that has to do with the fact I live with my folks, and I don't necessarily control everything they bring into the house. That said, I've drastically helped them reduce the amount of packaged goods they buy and our pantry is honestly pretty impressive! Thankfully, I have access to bulk bins at my local health food store, which greatly helps me keep my pantry plastic free. It might not be the MOST Instagram worthy pantry on the block, but it still gets the job done. I go to the bulk food store with my glass jars almost every two weeks, give or take, to refill on things. Sometimes I'll also use my produce bags too (it depends on the items I'm grabbing). First I'll make sure all my jars are tared, then I'll fill them up with whatever I need. I carry them all in a cute wine bag so they stay put and don't clink together too much. Then I get everything weighed up front and pay for it! It's super simple, but if you're new to bulk food shopping, I have a whole guide on how to use the bulk bins without creating any waste. Today though, lets talk about stocking your zero waste pantry!
