IMG_8740Today we met up around 10 am and shopped bulkfoods at Paradiset, Swedens’ biggest ecological food store.
I had written a draft of food recipes that we will try to make during our Zero- Wasting challenge.
Sweet potato soup with seed crispbread, chili and lentil stew with rice, pesto pasta, zucchini moussaka and more. When you are zero- wasting you can’t buy lentils in a plastic bag, so we took all of our glass jars and hopped our way to the bulkshelves.
We came out of the store with rice, pasta, seedmixes, oats, lentils, almonds, walnuts and medijool dates.

The cashier was very friendly and interested in our challenge, but she told us that many people make their own small bags out of kitchen towels etc instead of using the paperbags they offer at the bulk station. I had packed my backpack full with glass jars  in different sizes and Erika had a tote bag full of them with her. Well, we have for sure learned something new today. Don’t drag a ton of glass jars with you when you could just bring some fabric.
After our shopping tour we headed to Erika’s place and had some sushi for lunchmade our own toothpaste and deodorant.
