OK, let’s be honest: you’ve been waiting for the food trends, right? Sure, health trends and travel trends are nice, but food is where your heart is. We may not hit all of our health goals for 2019, and we may not get that amazing family vacation in the books. But food? Food we can do! Food is what makes life grand, what makes it all worth living. The good news is, according to Pinterest, we aren’t going to have to sacrifice flavor for healthy living in 2019! You can still hit all the food trends and keep your healthy living plan on track. At least for the first couple of months, we all know it goes off the rails around Easter anyway.

Last month I started making my own oat milk, and it’s a revelation. This much milk costs about 20p to make, and there’s no packaging waste. It separates a lot so needs shaking/stirring before use but that’s the case for shop bought oat milk too. . Soak 1 cup of oats in water for 30 mins, drain, put in a smoothie blender with 750ml of fresh water, blend until smooth and then sieve through a muslin bag. I usually then add a bit more water at the end to get it to the consistency I want / fill the container. . I get my oats from the bulk buy at @hisbe_food and I bought the cloth bag from local low waste company @worthwhyle 🌱 . #vegan #dairyfree #oatmilk #mylk #notyourmothernotyourmilk
