Here is the first of my new series where I share some of my finds from the week. There will be a mix of posts to include food, sustainability, gardening, aromatherapy and hebalism.
I love reading these posts on other blogs as it usually leads me to a new site I may never have seen otherwise!
Eco-Anxiety and Guilt
Climate change and sustainability, words are important to me but to some, it may make them feel worried or sick. It does me too, especially when you see documentaries like Sir David Attenborough’s from the past week. This is called eco-anxiety and guilt. Laura at The Mindful Mom Blographer shares her take on this topic and helps us to come up with ideas of how to cope and change the way we feel.
Plastic Free Parties
As the weather is starting to turn more summery, holding get-togethers and attending parties may be on the horizon. Usually, this can be a hard time of year to stay plastic-free with all the disposable party wear available. But Ann Marie at Zero Waste Chef shares how she has avoided this and it has a lot to do with planning ahead. From the end of school year celebrations to charity bake sales, there are plastic free solutions for everyone.
If you are looking for something small and quick to create this bank holiday weekend, one of my favourite blogs has a beautiful small woven bag you can make. Erin of Reading my Tea Leaves shared this project. It’s perfect for collecting small pieces of nature whilst out on a walk or for storing small pieces of fabric for a future project.
No Meat Easter
There are so many different recipe ideas now for vegan and vegetarian’s that is can be difficult to choose. So if you are looking for a meat-free Easter recipe, this tasty looking Vegan Rack of Lamb from Ruxandra at Gourmandelle is perfect.
Keeping with the vegan theme, but this time also adding in my love of herbs and a gluten-free element, I found the perfect dessert recipe. Lemon’s are such a summery fruit, from their colour to their flavour and add to this thyme, oh my, summer on a plate. Niki at Rebel Recipes has created just such a dessert in both tart and mousse form with here Lemon Curd and Thyme Tart. Citrus heaven.
