Kale if by far one of our favorite vegetable and one we can grow year around. We love eating it raw in salads or marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and little nutritional yeast, or sautéed with lots of garlic, cooked in soups and stews or dehydrated as kale chip.

People ask me all the time how much work is involved in living zero waste and the answer is not much more than someone living less sustainable. Of course we grow 70% of our own food and that requires some of our time and we spend about 30 minutes each on that per day. But the rest, shopping in bulk, washing cloth napkins, baking bread does not take more time than shopping at vons or calling for takeout. I always tell people that we are not doing this to complicate our life instead doing this to uncomplicated it.

Thank you Senator Atkins! Our main goal always is to be a good example, an inspiration for other families to to not become zero waste but to start the conversation about sustainable living and to make small personal changes. Thank you @ava and @nbchomesweethome for giving us this opportunity to put sustainable living on the map.

Posted @withregram • @arraynow If you think you have mastered recycling and composting, wait until you meet the Syren family! They set a shining example for us all through their commitment to ensuring a thriving future for our planet. Although they wouldn't give up their zero-waste lifestyle, it was important to Fredrika and James to open their kids' eyes to a different way of life. Take the adventure with them on the new episode of #HomeSweetHome tonight on @nbc at 8/7c.
