My name is Mary Katherine. I’m a hobby cook, not a chef, but I do have some foodservice industry experience. I started this blog before I worked in kitchens though.
The point of this blog is to cook with ingredients that don’t have packaging. I tried to reduce plastic use back in 2011 when I was in high school and I noticed that most of the plastic trash I was throwing out was being generated in the kitchen. I strongly believe that if a person wants to reduce their personal waste footprint that the kitchen is the best place to start.
When I started this blog I lived at home in an area with lots of zero-waste shopping options and my family paid for groceries, so it was easy to live a low-waste lifestyle. I’m in my 20s now so things are different. I still reduce my waste wherever possible, but I live in a rural area with fewer shopping options than where I grew up, and I am on a budget.
