Meal Prep Monday, August 3

I didn’t post anything last week for Meap Prep Monday as I’m trying to get a bit ahead with my meal preps. Normally, I’ll meal prep Sunday or Monday and then post it right away on Monday. That doesn’t give me a lot of time to try out the recipes (though I definitely sample as I cook!) and take pictures. For this post, I’ll share with you what I meal prepped last week. It gave me a little more time to try things out.

Who Gives a Crap Toilet Paper

When making low waste swaps, some things are harder than others. Finding a good deodorant that works with your body AND comes in sustainable packaging? Hard. Finding toilet paper that ISN’T wrapped in non-recyclable plastic? So, so easy. Get comfy because we are going to talk way more about toilet paper then I’m sure you ever thought you would!

Monday Meal Prep- July 20

Another week, another meal prep.

Last week, I got the news that I will be officially, 100% furloughed, which isn’t great but unfortunately, not that surprising when you work in travel. When countries are literally banning you from visiting, it makes it a little difficult to maintain your job planning international trips. Please wear a mask so we can get this virus under control and I can get back to work and we can all get back to traveling the world.

Lush Company Review

Since moving toward a low-waste lifestyle, I have been trying to shop local and shop small. Lush, unfortunately, does not fit that bill but they are one of the first companies that I fell in love with when I was switching to all-natural products several years back. Throughout the years, they have made continuous strides to lessen the waste that they offer including taking back their packaging for reuse and offering “naked” products like shampoos, conditioners, solid moisturizers and soaps. The real reason I’m featuring them, though, is that they have brick and mortar stores with an incredibly helpful staff. I think when you are starting on a low waste journey, or are looking for products with cleaner ingredients, it can be really intimidating. Instead of scrolling through pages on line, you can talk to real people about what your looking for and get recommendations.

June 8th Meal Prep

The Peabody Awards - 13th

It’s been over a month since I posted anything and since then so much has been going on in the world. Last week was particularly heavy, but necessary, with the protests and conversations that George Floyd’s death sparked. I took some time away from posting and sponged up as much of the information as I could. I think the most interesting thing I watched was 13th on Netflix. I highly recommend it.

May 11 Meal Prep

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This post was supposed to go live on Monday but my blog and I are having a bit of a fight. I accidentally changed the layout on Monday when I went to post this and haven’t been able to figure out how to change it back. My bad! Hopefully, it will be fixed by next week. Until then, bear with me.
