So if you come to this blog, it’s pretty likely you enjoy getting your hands dirty in the kitchen. We all love buying the ingredients for the dishes and sweets we plan on making, but doesn’t it feel a litle better when your ingredients come in environmentally friendly packaging? I know it seems like a small gesture when it’s only you, but just think about if everyone was to pitch in, then it would become a global initiative and make one happy planet.
During this holiday season (and forever!) Tetra Pak wants to enourage people to make smart decisions when they’re making that chicken noodle soup, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie and much more. Let’s Be Carton Smart!
Why choose Tetra Pak?
The cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable source, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees.
Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans.. or even a egg!
Cartons are space saving to keep your pantry neat and organized!
The packaging preserves the flavor and nutrients of the food, without using preservatives.
The cartons result in 60% less landfill waste than cans.
Cartons are re-closable so you can just close it up and save for a recipe later on. This means no dumping what you don’t use into another container (less dirty dishes) or even worse – wasting it!
When I make this soup I always use Pacific Foods Chicken Stock, a brand committed to using Tetra Park to be more environmentally friendly.
During the upcoming weeks you will begin to think about Thanksgiving and holiday dinners and some of my staples are always Pumpkin Pie (yum yum yum!) and Cranberry Sauce. Pacific Foods and Tetra Pak have got you covered with those too! Making yummy dishes and making the Planet happy – does it get any better? So when you are planning your delicous Green Bean Casserole, or a delicious pie, always reach for a Tetra Park! The carton options are endless! From mushroom to beef to chicken broth, to soups (my favorite is Black Bean!) and soup starter bases, to mac and cheese and black beans, to gravy, to rice and almond and chocolate beverages and so much more.. do you see the amount of options here?
Lately I’ve been craving healthy snacks – peas, almonds, crispy soybeans and plenty of fruits. Raspberries tend to disappear quickly when I’m near them, I can easily eat one of those small little pints for a snack which leaves it as a expensive snack but so worth it. Why can’t raspberries be cheap? I’m constantly on the lookout for them on sale. There’s a market near me that they’re occasional on sale at and when they are, I get hearts in my eyes and skip home (with raspberries in hand). What’s your favorite berry? We grow a bunch of strawberries in the garden but I’m thinking we need to start growing raspberries next year!
Soybeans are one of my other favorite snacks and even better when I can make them straight from the garden! Within 30 minutes you can enjoy crispy Edamame soybeans! And trust me, they will make you snack happy! I could snack on these all day, actually sometimes I do!
