Recycling is good because it avoids creating new products from raw materials. However, it is even better to reuse items like glass jars because it still requires a lot of energy to take an old glass container and convert it into a new product. In order for a product like glass to be recycled, it must be rinsed and it must not break when it is in transit; if the glass breaks, most of it goes to the landfill.
Contrary to popular belief, oil as a moisturizer is good for you in many ways. Most people – myself included – have been brought up to believe that oil is bad for your skin because it makes you breakout; hence, most mainstream commercial skin care products are oil-free. However, like dissolves like; therefore, oil dissolves oil.
This dish was partly inspired by my mom’s cooking. She used to make something like this when I was a child. Cremini and onions are meant to be together! The jerk sauce gives it a kick, while the basil and hoisin sauce give the dish a unique flavour, while keeping the spice in check (well, kind of!). Most importantly, it’s an easy and fast recipe. I hope you like it.
If you plan on giving gifts, why not try to be more responsible in our celebrations by being mindful of our ecological footprint?
