Would you like to start a journey to low-waste living?  Is there a way to reduce trash, create tasty dishes, improve your health, and save money?  Join us on Zoom on Saturday, January 29 at 2 pm.  Anne-Marie Bonneau will be showing us that a sustainable lifestyle starts in the kitchen with use-what-you-have, spend less money recipes.  Please register for this program. 

Anne-Marie Bonneau is the author of Zero Waste Chef-Plant Forward Recipes and Tips for a Sustainable Kitchen and Planet.  Anne-Marie went plastic-free in 2011 after learning about plastic’s devastating impact on our oceans and their inhabitants.  Through social media, her blog and her book, Anne-Marie shows others how reducing their trash not only benefits the planet but also satisfies their taste buds, improves health, and saves money. 

Are you interested in learning useful tips now?  Check out Anne-Marie's book.  Anne-Marie summarizes the impact of plastic on our earth and additives to the plastic food packaging that may lead to health concerns.  With humor and realistic advice, Anne-Marie encourages individuals to adapt changes at their own pace.  She describes how to learn to cook without a recipe.  Consider “freestyle cooking” like your grandmother used to cook.  Learn how to preserve food in the freezer, using fermentation to preserve food, and how to make your own yogurt, ricotta cheese, and sour cream.  There is a step-by-step guide to make sourdough starter and sourdough bread. Use the sourdough starter to make tasty pancakes and quick bread.  A lot of the book is devoted to recipes for main dishes, sides, snacks, and desserts with creative ways to use scraps.
