Low Waste and Eco-Friendly Moving Tips and Tricks

This summer I moved once again. For this move I took more time to prepare than I have in the past and also was a lot more aware of the amount of waste that I could prevent creating throughout the process. In this blog post I will be sharing some of the tips and tricks that I discovered to not only help the process of moving be less overwhelming, but also low waste.                                                              One of the first and most important tips I have for you when moving is to look for second-hand items before purchasing new ones. Buying second hand is the best option for purchasing items for the environment because you are prolonging the life of an item that would otherwise be discarded to a landfill. Landfills are another issue in its self that I will not get into now.

Must Have Apps for College Students

To give a little preface to this blog post I am a senior Environmental Studies major and Environmental Education minor. Over the past four years in college I have found a number of different apps that help me to not only succeed in my school work, but that also help me in other areas of my life. In this blog post I will be sharing some of my favorite apps that I recommend all college students consider using.  Spotify When it comes to music subscription services I recommend Spotify because they have a student package that also includes a subscription to Hulu. Some of the features of Spotify that are helpful to students is the ability to create your own playlists. This allows you to create a playlist specific to your needs. This could either be for working out or while studying. On Spotify you can find a playlist to fit any need that you have. This app is great because you are listen to music or podcasts on your walks or drives to class, while working out and while studying.     Favorite

10 Quick and Easy 3-4 Main Ingredient Dinners

There are a number of reasons why I love 3-4 ingredient meals. The first reason is that it makes grocery shopping so much easier and lowers the cost. Secondly, it takes up less space in the fridge or pantry which has been a problem for me in the past because I live with roommates and we have limited space. Lastly having less ingredients means simpler prep and cooking. In this blog post I have compiled some of my favorite and most made 3-4 main ingredient dinners. These meals range from slow cooker to the grill. I have a variety of different dishes and ideas on how to adapt them to fit your dietary needs. As I mention in all of my food related blog posts I am moderately low fodmap (no onions and garlic unless it is in a seasoning blend), completely milk free and rarely eat gluten. I also do not eat starch and only eat carbs from fruits and non-starchy vegetables. Eggroll in a Bowl Eggroll in a bowl is the perfect dinner because it combines vegetables and protein into one easy dish.
