Plastic free fruit where are you? This month I am trying to refuse all single use plastic and also trying to spend some time nourishing myself food-wise and culture-wise. In Scotland seasonal soft fruit is brilliant. The taste takes me straight back to my childhood where we used to take trips to the pick your own fruit farm to gorge on fruit and play on trampolines, sometimes we even managed to take home a punnet or two. These trips also provided my family with one of our randomest favourite phrases ‘Get out the mangetout!!’ – let’s just say hearing that over a loudspeaker is really amusing. So that meandering story brings me to raspberries – my favourite fruit of them all.In Scotland they are now in season and nowhere can I find them not in plastic. I am on a mission now but I fear I will cave. Fruit not packaged in plastic seems hard to come by unless I trade local, seasonal fruit for hardier fruit such as bananas, oranges and apples but these are currently better travelled than I am and these things bother me greatly. It is a conundrum but a new, incredibly local farmers market to scope it out – wish me luck! I am really craving fruit at the moment as I have discovered a new ridiculously simple breakfast of overnight oats. The addition of raspberries to this dish was lovely, think breakfast cranachan. It is so simple to make – currently I am using 1/2 cup of oats and 2/3 of a cup of milk, mixing it in a kilner jar and leaving overnight in the fridge. I have seen others use milk and yoghurt but bizarrely since being vegan for a month in February I have been finding yoghurt really unappealing. I would try coconut yoghurt but it comes in plastic – plastic is literally everywhere! An attempt at a plastic-free soul-nourishing festival trip will explore that a little more. In the meantime why not head on over to see Katie at Sustainability in Style and catch up on how her nourishing July is going?
