One of the great ways to avoid plastic and unnecessary waste is to make your own meals and staples from scratch.

I have been making this nut and seed bread for a few years now and it’s quite simply the most delicious and nutritious loaf I have ever tasted. I have made this for many a friend, family member and colleague and received a 100% 10 out of 10 feedback rating. Many have been converted...

Although we are coming at you from the eco-angle here, the health benefits are numerous; fibre, vitamins & minerals, healthy fats, completely unprocessed, can be made gluten free (using GF oats) and has no nasty additives or preservatives.

It also goes deliciously well with nut butters, jams, honey, hummus and just about any other condiment you can think off.
