A random thing I've been doing lately to reduce my waste – I keep any and all vegetable scraps in a bag in my freezer. Whenever I've collected enough, I boil them all up into vegetable stock to use in cooking, to give plenty of that sweet, sweet umami flavour.
All kinds of scraps go in the bag. Carrot peel. Onion skin. That one mushroom which always starts to go dry before I can use it. The only rules are to make sure everything's clean, and to avoid using anything which is rotten or mouldy.
Today I Learned that you can’t find #broccoli in the wild since it was created by humans by breeding it from wild cabbage.
What would happen if the entire US stopped eating meat? Research says it'd be like taking 60 million cars off the road and there’s no nutritional downside.

Disordered eating cw
r/ zerocarb is absolutely buckwild. There's all of these people saying that they started zero carb and got sick, horrible diarrhea, unbearable cravings, old pains coming back from nutrient deficiency.
Discussing the desire to add even small amounts of carbs gets you banned. Furthermore, they believe that other viewpoints on what humans should eat are bullshit pseudoscience.
There are even people who have said their gums stop bleeding when they eat fruit, but they don't want to add fruit to their diet!
Moral of the story is, if you go on a diet that makes you extremely ill....stop doing it! Your body is trying to tell you something! Even if you're trapped in a cycle of disordered eating, you can reduce harm by not spreading it to others via the internet.
