F I N - T O - S C A L E // We commonly waste up to 70% of a fish, but the fillets aren’t the only bits that are both edible and delicious. Controversial as it is, I’ve wanted to share this image with you for a long time. Root to fruit eating is inspired by nose to tail eating. Practicing the complete consumption of animals (including fish) is even more important than fruit and vegetables due to the resources that went into producing that food. Not to mention the fact that when we eat meat we have chosen to take the life of that animal to sustain us. The way we eat is up to us as individuals. It’s so important we honour the animals life by not wasting a thing. It’s also important we honour our own relationship to our food’s origin and don’t look the other way. This may be an alarming image to some. But if you eat meat I believe we should acknowledge it in all it’s gory.
Check out my @guardianfeast column for my guide to eating the whole fish from fin to scale. Link in bio.
#AZeroWasteLife - a perfectly imperfect zero waste life.
My second book A Zero Waste Family tells of my own story of how I relaxed all my zero waste ‘rules’ and accepted a perfectly imperfect zero waste life.
My husband’s battle with cancer has shown me that compassion is needed now more than ever. There is no ‘right’ way to life a sustainable life, there’s only effort and a goal towards progress. We can fight the good fight, but we can also applaud people for positive change.
And that’s always been my message, small steps make a big cumulative difference. Let’s all applaud each other for positive changes, because bigger change will come with time.
My perfectly imperfect pantry is a prime example of that. Most of my dried goods are from @thesourcebulkfoods
