We love hearing (or reading!) how @robjgreenfield talks about his connection and relationship with food.
If you aren't already following him be sure to to go give him a follow @robjgreenfield
• • • When I say “Food, food, food… It never stops...” that is also a wonderful and fantastic thing to be saying.
Food is life. Food is one of my greatest passions. Food brings me great joy and happiness. For me, it is a means of exploring life on Earth. But I’m not just passionate about eating food. I am passionate about understanding my food, having a deep connection to it and seeing it in every stage of being before it ends up on my plate. I am passionate about growing my own food. I am passionate about exploring the land and finding food growing abundantly in the wild.
I wake up and I go to bed thinking about food. Sometimes that can be a bit of a burden, yes, but for the most part it is me living my life purposefully and passionately, deeply connected with the life forces that allow for my existence.
I eat to live but I also live to eat.
I believe food to be quite possibly the largest gateway to connect others with our basic existence. I believe that if I can get people to rethink their food, I can get people to rethink their entire lives and how they are interacting with their surroundings. I believe our connection to our food is one of the single greatest catalysts for the change we need to see if humans and the species we depend on will continue to exist on this planet.
“Food, food, food… It never stops...” means time in the woods. It means time on the ocean and paddling on lakes and rivers. It means peaceful time in my garden. It means connecting with friends in a healthy environment.
This weekend I am with my friend Pete @greendreamsfl. He taught me how to forage for chanterelle mushrooms and this is the bounty we harvested in a few hours of walking through the woods. But even if we hadn’t harvested a single mushroom we still would have harvested thousands of fresh breaths and the healthy rays of sun shining through the trees upon us. We’ve also spent part of the weekend harvesting wild yams and fishing in the pond near his house.
“One year ago, I started my #sustainabilityjourney. I did not realize how life changing it would be. Having less makes me feel limitless rather than confined. I strongly feel that there is so much to be found in sustainability and minimalism.” — @thequarterrican (photo of his wardrobe)
There truly is so much minimalism can give all of us. All of your comments in our previous post about the benefits you’ve experienced — that’s proof right there.
Perhaps the best thing about minimalism is that it’s so personal. Everyone can be a minimalist, without sacrificing what’s important in their lives. We really think everyone should at least try what a more minimalist approach to life could do for them. Many won’t look back to the clutter.

DIY Moisturiser ✨
Go and have a look at the body/face moisturiser your using? I dare you.. go and grab it and have a look. How many ingredients? Does it have artificial fragrance? Funny ingredients you can’t pronounce? Did you know if you look up most of the ingredients under side effects the most common is “skin irritation”. Doesn’t make sense does it?
Now I have some amazing moisturiser recipes but for this one I wanted to keep it simple. 4 ingredients guys! Whipped body butter!
3/4 cup Shea butter
1/4 cup Coconut oil
1/4 cup bees wax (or candelilla wax to make it vegan friendly)
20-30 drops of essential oil (I used 10 yarrow pom and 10 lavender)
Melt everything in a glass bowl using the double boiler method on the stove. Let cool slightly and add your essential oils. Put glass bowl in the freezer for around 20-30 minutes until set firm. Take it out and using electric beaters, beat the mixture until it turns white and fluffy. It will resemble whipped cream. When you think it’s done.. continue beating for a further minute.
Transfer into a clean sterilised glass jar. This recipe makes approx 500g.
If using on children dilute essential oils accordingly!
If you live in a really hot climate you may need to keep in a cool spot or in the fridge.
This is luscious! Perfect to use at night after a shower before bed. You will wake up feeling so soft 👌🏻
You may have seen a few changes at the pool. Following the lead of Take 3 for the Sea we are reducing our use of plastics, being wiser with our use of water and electricity and of course fighting the war on waste. We can’t wait to showcase the eco changes coming to the pool and the ones already here! Stay tuned.

Our fabrics are manufactured to last. We neither use toxic pesticides nor chemicals in our production. Each garment is thoroughly inspected before shipment, ironed, and packed with respect to our environment. It is an easy yet impactful way of making sure that we are one step closer to become a carbon neutral company. .

Since I’ve been spending a lot of time at the “office” lately, I thought I’d share the sustainability gadgets I keep at my desk. tldr; I’m willing to bet that you already have most of these things at home! The first category of items - arguably most important to my everyday functioning - is caffeine-related ☕️ earlier in the semester, a mid afternoon green tea (loose leaf, steeped in the red gadget) was enough to pick me up. Unfortunately that time has passed and now we’re on to a mid afternoon coffee! I get my coffee at @bulkbarnfoods, it comes whole grain but you can grind it in store. I drink my caffeinated beverages out of my favourite mug while Yoda whispers messages of encouragement to me. Bet the Starbucks lady on the disposable cups doesn’t do that. Category number 2 is cleaning-related items 🧼I have some dish soap from @karmacooptoronto in a squeeze bottle and a dish towel; I might try to also pick up a scrubbing apparatus soon. And finally we have the lunch-related items🍴a reusable cutlery set, cloth napkin, water bottle and compost jar. I have this jar because there aren’t any compost bins in my building, although another PhD student and I are trying to change that. Hope this gives you some ideas about how to implement sustainability at work. Now back to learning how to construct universally most powerful hypothesis tests. #zerowaste#lowwaste#phdlife#sustainability
