Low Waste Living – Weekly Grocery Haul in Brooklyn, NY

Please keep in mind that this is not everything we eat. I made a list of filler foods which will be made with what we already have in our kitchen. Food can be expensive, I hope this is helpful to someone who might be discouraging because they may not fit into a specific demographic.

I want to recognize that a sustainable lifestyle is not about perfection, it is about attempting our best with anything we have access to. When there are so many social issues to be aware of, it’s simple to get frustrated. So if we can be realistic and know we’re doing the best we can wherever we’re, that’s the most essential thing. I encourage you to keep going, even if your grocery purchases do have a minor impact on waste.

There are so many other places in our lives that we can build. I want us to be willing to remain passionate about the activity instead of being worried about stuff outside of our control. I can’t, and that’s OK because I try just to be mindful of my impact on the plant.

Vegan Strawberry Ginger Muffins

These vegan strawberry muffins are quite soft and moist for a wholesome breakfast pastry or daytime snack. I am not a vegan, but some recipes are SO good that I can’t help making them over and over again. This is one recipe that I have modified over the years and did enjoy.

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 25 mins

Servings: 12 muffins

Dry Ingredients:
½ cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger

Wet Ingredients:
1 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
lemon zest
1 – 1 1/2 cups strawberries (If frozen, add only 1/2 cup milk)

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Use coconut oil to grease the muffin tin and then set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine milk and apple cider vinegar and then set aside to allow the mixture to curdle.
  • In another bowl combine baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  • For the liquids, get another bowl and combine the sugar, ginger, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Once, add the curdled almond milk/vinegar mixture and stir to combine.
  • Stir in the dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed together. A few lumps are OK. Just don’t over-mix.
  • Fold in the strawberries (if frozen, drain liquid first).
  • Spoon into muffin tins, filling each cup about ¾ full.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from heat and allow muffins to cool before removing from the tin.

I love cooking. It brings me back to my creative elements. There is always a story behind the even recipe and alterations the is personal to you. I hope you enjoy this recipe too.
