Rainbow Salad Shaking 22nd August 2019
A huge thanks to everyone who has taken part in our first proper week full of CCF events! We have had our first growing session, food class, and our first carbon literacy project sign up in the last few days.
We had a great time today creating rainbow salads and shakin' them up to create a simple, healthy, delicious meal. Rainbow salads can be prepped to last the week, so are perfect for busy people who don't have time to pack lunches for school or work everyday. They're also useful for an amazing zero-waste picnic, as the jars are robust, leak proof, and reusable.
After shaking our salads to some salsa music, we sat down together for lunch and shared tips and recipes with each other. Part of our discussion involved looking at food miles and weighing up the emissions of certain products, something that reflected the theme of our growing workshop earlier in the week, where we talked about recognising produce that's 'in season' and growing winter veg.
