Just in time for Earth Day, I’m wrapping up my sustainable kitchen series, and although there is much more to cover in this journey, I hope you’ve discovered a few techniques to implement on your way to creating a more sustainable kitchen and ultimately, lifestyle.
So we’ve organized our pantry and kitchen space in part one, sustainably shopped in part two, and today’s post is all about sustainable storage.
If you’re buying vegetable broth at the grocery store, you’re doing life wrong. Make it yourself and you’ll never go back to the processed, weak, flavored water you’ll find in box or can format. It’s so ridiculously simple and you’ll feel better about not throwing out your produce nearing spoilage level. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, 40% of food in the US goes to waste. Help be a part of the solution with my recipe below. Just save your nearly spoiled produce and vegetable scraps not otherwise being used, place in the freezer in a gallon sized bag until you have about 5-6 cups and you’re all set. Your soups, stews and chili will thank you. Not to mention vegetable broth brings another dimension to pasta, quinoa and any other grain that calls for boiling. ENJOY!

When I heard Shipt was gifting the Nashville Food Bloggers a free membership, excited was an understatement. I’m all about making life simpler and freeing up time to focus on what’s important-whether that’s time with loved ones, hustling on a dream, giving back to the community, learning a new language or ______________.
