Eliminating plastic has been an ongoing project for me.


I use a paper grocery bag to store fresh fruit and veggie in the frig. I void taking plastic bags from the store at most costs.

I have a canvas cotton reuseable shopping bag.

Boy the list goes on but I still need to eliminate more ............

LOL, my fridge i virtually empty except for key items my non-raw sister keeps. I line the bottom shelf and drawer with brown paper recycled from Wholefood and keep my few fruit and veggie items rolled up in a paper bag. I only buy food for a day or two. Even in fasting mode or not I only buy fresh for the now.

I would love a fridge made out of metal glass and bamboo

that is so interesting coz i just last night was drawing a kitchen the way I would like to hasve it. And you said,

i think it would be cool as well to have an all glass front huge 4 doors fridge with a dimmer control on the view so that when company is in the house you can turn the glass to a frost like view,( or keep it there if you like it), and also have fiber optic rods biult in to change the color of the glass per mood that you feel.
So 1. door would for all my fruits
door 2. foor all veggie
door 3. for all meals and left overs
and door 4 for freezer foods like banana ice cream
Metal on the sides or edges and the rest embeded into the black granite wall.
Also a temperatured controled room for fresh fruits and veggiesd that need to rippen. And pantry for nuts and oils and stuff like that.
And a room, that's sound proof where i can run a couple dehydrators with out hearing the drowning sound of the dryer.

Hey Path!

Did you know it is recommended that all nuts and oils stay in the fridge too, so they won't go rancid! That is why most really good HFS have their raw nuts in the cooler!

Ok, that is my fun fact for today!

Question

Hmmmm....that's an intersting tip!
well does any of your nuts have a damp like taste to them/ or yet a better question at what level do you keep your upper part of the fridge and hydrator dampness and cold levels keep at?
I know all fridges are different but some there has to be a medium range? that proves to work best.

uhhhhhhh.....errrr..... I dunno! LOL!

I have never had any problems with dampness or anything. I keep them in glass containers (like your mason jars) and they are always perfect. I have my mom doing the same thing and she has no issues. I have been doing this for almost 3 years now.

I try to keep the fridge cold, but not so things freeze... That is about as specific as I get.

Ok -- let me go check.......(9 is the coldest setting) we have ours at a 3. Our drawer (crisper) has a humidity control and I keep it at it's lowest setting. If I buy lots of nuts in packages, I keep them in the plastic they came in & put in a drawer (cripser). They have kept for months at a time for me.

Hope this helps!

I do keep them in glass containers -- unless I get a good deal and buy TONS of them....then I keep them in the bags they come in until we are ready to use them. Then they go into the glass!

HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR NUTS????? LOL!!

Hhhhmmmm........what kind of site is this?.........LMAO
The pistacho's,almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts and occasionally pine nuts - may get transported in a plastic bag but then are released into a glass container with lid, and then into the cabinet. I've never had any of them go rancid, but I have had some soaked ones get moldy in the fridge

Boy the air is getting quite tight in this room for ya Path--eh?


I envisioned similar too. A glass refrigerator with bamboo shelves and metal trimming. mainly b/c I think the glass would be advantageous for the sunlight to shine thru and make the food ALIVE!
