While shopping at Sobey’s tonight, I scanned the shelves for non dairy items. I have been wanting to try oat milk a long while now. I tried making some the other week, but I did not enjoy it. This time I’m trying this kind to see where to go with making my own. I’m going to give it a go making coconut yogurt. There is a starter culture I need to pick up tomorrow at a health food store, in glass! I picked up some non dairy cheese and butter. Be nice to make my own. I chose that bag of tortilla style chips, hoping it was paper packaging, but sadly it is lined with plastic. I also am trying the frozen dessert treat, which comes wrapped in paper!
So yeah, I’m looking at cutting out animal products and moving to a plant based diet. This will take time and small changes. I will be looking at making my own products where I can, I dont want to add more packaging to be honest. Switching has been on my mind for quite a while, probably about year now.
I need to focus on as much local as I can. One of my rules is supporting local and keep the carbon footprint as low as possible. I have already made steps towards this new journey. I stopped eating sea food/fish. I stopped drinking milk, except for cereal and baking/cooking needs.
So this is where I am at, I think Chris is a little on board, its definitely on his mind! Little steps and small changes. No need to dive in as it may be overwhelming and discouraging.
