Vegan Zero Waste Overnight Oats and Porridge

For years, oatmeal has been our go-to breakfast. Overnight oats, oatmeal, porridge. Whatever name or type you prefer, this breakfast is healthy, filling, versatile and super easy to make. And there are so many ways to vary this dish that we have yet to grow tired of it. We have oats for breakfast six days a week. It’s easy to make ahead if you’re in a rush most mornings. You can bring it to the office, eat it whilst doing your make-up, or enjoy it cuddled up on the sofa watching your favorite Netflix show. Honestly, you can’t go wrong…

Waste Waning Wednesday #6

Our past week was amazing. The final day of the week (that’s Sunday for us, if you’re wondering) in particular was incredibly fun. There weren’t any specific dinners or events throughout the week, so instead we’re talking about a few things that we’ve used repeatedly over the past month or so! Enjoy what is already our sixth weekly diary.   Relaxing bath time When we first realized the apartment we were moving into had a bathtub, we visited a Lush store that same week. After settling down, we ran our first bath and plopped in a bright blue bath bomb.…

A zero waste lifestyle can be daunting

In particular in the western world, many of us are brought up quite spoiled. Sure, each parent raises their kids differently, but it’s often that I see kids in stores cry until they get the toy or candy bar they so desperately want. Once raised in a world where everything is up for grabs, it’s hard to steer away from these habits. Coming from such a culture, a zero waste lifestyle can feel like quite an arduous journey, especially when just starting out.

Though we hoped to spend years on end driving it around countless countries, we ended up doing something completely different. This change - moving into an apartment in Dublin, Ireland - was out of necessity. Somewhere along the way I got stuck thinking about how we weren’t doing what we planned. We weren’t doing the thing we worked so hard for. But I’ve come to realise that sometimes things just…

Waste Waning Wednesday #4

Last week was a huge success in our zero waste journey! We found solutions in the two areas that caused most of the single use plastics that entered our household. And they’re so exciting to me that I don’t feel like doing an intro. So without further ado, here’s this week’s waste waning Wednesday!    Plastic free fruit and veg boxes Leafy greens were an area where we could not avoid single use plastic since living in Ireland. The same was actually true when we were traveling through Denmark and Sweden during summer. In the Netherlands, we were able to…
