The Zero Waste Chef

In her decade of living with as little plastic, food waste, and stuff as possible, Anne-Marie Bonneau, who blogs under the moniker Zero-Waste Chef, has learned that "zero-waste" is above all an intention, not a hard-and-fast rule.

The Zero Waste Chef

A sustainable lifestyle starts in the kitchen with these use-what-you-have, spend-less-money recipes and tips, from the friendly voice behind @ZeroWasteChef. In her decade of living with as little plastic, food waste, and stuff as possible, Anne-Marie Bonneau, who blogs under the moniker Zero-Waste Chef, has learned that "zero-waste" is above all an intention, not a hard-and-fast rule. Because, while one person eliminating all their waste is great, if thousands of people do 20 percent better it will have a much bigger impact on the planet. The good news is you likely already have all the tools you need to begin to create your own change at home, especially in the kitchen. In her debut book, Bonneau gives readers the facts to motivate them to do better, the simple (and usually free) fixes to ease them into wasting less--you can, for example, banish plastic wrap by simply inverting a plate over your leftovers--and, finally, the recipes and strategies to turn them into more sustainable, money-saving cooks. Rescue a loaf from the landfill by making Mexican Hot Chocolate Bread Pudding, or revive some sad greens to make a pesto. Save five bucks (and the plastic tub) at the supermarket with Yes Whey, You Can Make Ricotta Cheese, then use the cheese in a galette and the leftover whey to make sourdough tortillas. With 75 vegan and vegetarian recipes for cooking with scraps, creating fermented staples, and using up all your groceries before they become waste--including end-of-recipe tips on what to do with your ingredients next--Bonneau lays out an attainable vision of a zero-waste kitchen.

Many approaches to zero-waste living exist, and individuals are turning to them for various reasons; individuals from diverse backgrounds, inspirations, motivators, household sizes, and ages. Zero-waste is a lifestyle choice that aims to minimize harmful environmental impacts by generating less waste. The lifestyle strongly correlates with minimalism: a way of life that aims to keep personal possessions at a minimum; only purchasing items that are of essential value, or can be used for a variety of purposes.

Zero Waste Secrets

" If you're reading this book you're probably keen on saving our beautiful planet from waste, toxins and plastic pollution.

Zero Waste Secrets

"What good is all of that greed the huge corporations have for money over our health and planet with single use chemical ridden products designed to break, when there's no air left for us to breathe because we've polluted it?" If you're reading this book you're probably keen on saving our beautiful planet from waste, toxins and plastic pollution. You might have also experienced what I call "zero waste overwhelm" where you want to do everything to fight climate change, heal the planet and tell everyone about it to get them involved too! That's brilliant, but we all have our limits, so don't push yourself to do too much at once. I like to push myself just passed my limit then wait there for a little while before trying to get to the next level because if we burnout we can't help anyone. The top excuse I've heard from people as to why they don't go greener or try zero waste is that they can't be perfect like the social media influencers who fit all of their years rubbish into one jar. We don't have to be that extreme! In fact, how do we know they actually did fit all of their years rubbish into one jar?! There's a thought... So, I created this book as a realistic guide to zero waste, maybe that's not the best name, maybe it should be called conscious living, or less waste, because in all honesty, it's impossible to have ZERO waste. My hope is that you will use this guide to ease your way into zero waste/less waste/conscious living, or you can use it to add to your current eco knowledge. Don't forget to share it with family and friends, so that we can all do our bit to help the planet and to also help our families and ourselves. Because we're all in this together!
