Change one thing – 22

Day 22 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething Most plastic waste comes from food packaging. Investigate bring-your-own-container shops; or buy in bulk and share with friends and neighbours. Larger containers usually mean less packaging. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle πŸŒπŸ›οΈβ™»οΈ

Day 21 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: There are over 2,500 varieties of apple in the UK, yet 70% of all the apples we eat are from three varieties – Braeburn, Gala and Golden Delicious – and 70% of those are imported. Try a different apple […]

Change one thing – 19

Day 19 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: Offal is offally good! Eat meat? Then eat everything, not just prime cuts. Plant based? Same applies; beetroot tops make great greens, veg trimmings for soup. Great for your pocket and the climate πŸŒπŸ½οΈπŸ‘›β€οΈπŸ₯•

Day 17 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: More than 50% of the food we eat in the UK is ultra processed. If you need a chemistry degree to read the label, it’s only food in name. If you’re time stretched in the week, cook real food today and freeze for hectic daysπŸŒπŸ›β„οΈπŸ˜‹


Change one thing – 16

Day 16 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: The hungry gap us upon us with less seasonal veg. Let your pulse quicken with pulses: dried, canned or frozen. Perfect for bulking out meat, or if vegan, far better for you than fake meats. Think stew, curry or dahl πŸŒπŸ›πŸ˜‹

Day 15 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: Go nuts about nuts. Nutritious, filling, and we should aim to eat a small handful every day. The UK produces great walnuts, hazels, and #arkoftaste Cobnuts. Eat UK nuts and you’ll support our woodland habits too πŸŒπŸŒ°πŸ˜‹

Day 14 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: Grow something. Food always seems to taste better when you grow it yourself. Only a window box? Grow winter salad. Grow already? Then get seeds ready for spring – something you have never grown from the #arkoftaste πŸŒπŸŒ±πŸ‘Œ


Change one thing -13

Day 13 of our daily #slowfood challenge #changeonething: Make something to squirrel away. Soup for the freezer, cake or flapjack for the tin, jam or pickles. Food is not just calories, it’s about love. Allow yourself to quietly smile knowing what you made is there 🐌 πŸ˜€πŸ°
