Waste Less Live More Week

blackberriesLast week was  Waste Less Live More week and we took the challenge.

It’s pretty simple really.

A week of tips to help your family and the planet live a little better together.

Monday Meat free Monday
Tuesday Try something new Tuesday
Wednesday Waste less Wednesday
thursday Thrifty Thursday
Friday Fruitful Friday
Saturday Share something Saturday
Sunday Seasonal Sunday

Meat Free Monday we had a great Moroccan butternut squash stew but we scoffed it all before I remembered to take a pic but the kids had great fun picking a huge Blackberry haul which we ate for pudding with some ice cream. #MeatFreeMonday


Waste Less Wednesday we dug in to the back of the freezer and fridge and came up with a great mushroom and spinach risotto with this lot (have to admit I did open a bottle of wine to add), and I did remove the mould first! #wastelesswednesday


Fruitful Friday we picked our own apples from the tree in the garden and made a crumble with some of the blackberries we’d saved. #fruitfulfriday

If you fancy joining the challenge with your kids you can follow the simple 5 day tips above or check out the Waste Less Live More website.

    Great idea for a challenge, I think we have wate not day and thrifty day every day with a big family and pigs for anything we fail to eat. Loving the look of your apple tree.

    Well done you for managing to not waste so much food, I bet that risotto tasted delicious!

    Nipping over from Country Kids.

    I was cutting mould of the edge of cheese last night as well, the stuff that comes in the resealable bags seems to go off very quickly once you have opened it in comparison to the stuff that comes cellophane wrapped.
