6 Regrown Foods


If you're serious about zero-waste living and looking for even more ways to green your kitchen, then why not easily turn your organic scraps into regenerating food sources? Doing this hardly requires any extra effort or time on your part.

The method is simple: Put the root into a jar with a little bit of water (when it begins to grow, you can transfer the vegetable into an appropriate size pot). Keep the jar close to sunlight - near the kitchen window is a prime spot! Soon enough you will be able to notice green leaves and new life sprouting. When it’s of a decent size, cut it away and use in your dishes. Replenish your water supply and the vegetable is ready to grow again!

Incidentally, you'll be saving on trips to the supermarket and having a a whole lot of fun growing your own food!
