Eco Series: Back to School & Office Essentials

Eco Series: Back to School & Office Essentials

This is part two of my five part eco friendly series. I've made a list of my "back to school" essentials (which also double for eco friendly work place essentials) that can help the eliminate waste and help planet! 

I especially like the eco friendly lunch swaps! I know I'm not in school anymore, but being a vegan on the go these options help me always remain eco friendly and stay fueled on the go! Bringing your own lunch is healthy, and impacts the environment in such a positive way! You can eliminate an a great deal of one time use plastic by bringing your own utensils, bringing your own containers, and using reusable sandwich bags. 

Carrot Lox

Carrot Lox

This is so easy, and incredibly tasty! Just be prepared to have a ridiculous amount of salt on hand. You’ll need to cover the carrots completely, and this requires a load of salt!! A tip from me is to use LARGE carrots. If your carrots are too small you’ll not be able to peel them easily at the end. I’ve attempted this with both coconut oil and olive oil. Both work, but as you’ll see in the video (Please excuse the camera quality! My vlogging days had just begun), the coconut oil will somewhat solidify while marinating.

Spicy Lentil Soup

Spicy Lentil Soup
Soups are a staple in our house! We make them at least once a week! I love them because they are packed with veggies and this soup is the perfect recipe to make on a cold day-- or, even better when you're sick on a cold day!  It's incredibly thick, filling, and creamy. 

Zoats {Zucchini Oats}

Zoats {Zucchini Oats}
This is hands down my favorite everyday breakfast! I love how filling it is, how tasty it is, and how simple it is! Adding zucchini to your oats may seem a little odd-- but, it kind of isn't all that strange (think zucchini bread, but oat form!).
