As much as possible I try and eat vegetables that are in season and therefore haven’t travelled huge distances to the shops. I also like to support local farmers and so used to do as much of my veggie shopping as possible at farmers markets. I started finding it difficult to be able to get to them consistently enough to keep me going so late last year I started ordering a fortnightly delivery of organic veggies, dropped right at my door.
They did some filming at my house last week and we were left with a large pile of very ripe bananas, which I assume were used as set dressing for the scenes in the kitchen. We had been using them in smoothies but they hadn’t gotten so ripe that even putting them in smoothies wasn’t appetising anymore! So banana and walnut loaf came to the rescue instead!
This is a super simple recipe that takes about 15 minutes to whip up, and about 55 minutes in the oven.
As first cab of the rank in my quest to learn new things I decided to do a homemade bath products class run through Laneway Learning and taught by the Green Renters. The class was held outdoors at the People’s Market which has taken up residence not far from my place, resulting in many visits by me to trial their ever-changing food options, browse the craft stalls and sample the drinks. It’s a pretty cool setup on what was an inner city car park.
2013 is going to be my year of really putting words into actions. Seriously committing to living as sustainably and consciously as possible, considering the impact of my actions on those around me and the planet, and following my gut instinct when making decisions.
Healthy eating, doing what I love, focusing my energy where it matters most. Stop over thinking. Do.
I want to use this blog to document my journey, which will no doubt include a whole range of failed attempts, hilarious mistakes and misguided choices, but that’s ok with me.
