My last day in Grand Rapids was filled with preparing for the next leg of the road trip so this is just a quick update. Using the rest of my products from the farmers market we made blueberry jam and some cucumber, cabbage, and beet pickles! I used some canning jars and packed excess veggies in my stainless steel containers for the road. I also picked up a coffee along the way in my mason jar. Next stop, Chicago!


  1. How did you pack everything you brought with you? Do you have any pictures of that? Really motivating posts, thanks!

  2. Can you do a sample of daily meals (even if just pictures)? It's easier for me to see how no waste lifestyle is done if I can fully see a typical day. πŸ™‚

  3. Maybe this is not applicable to you if you're not a gigantic klutz like I am, but how do you keep from constantly breaking the mason jars you carry your food and drinks around in?! I have a stainless steel water bottle, and I'm always dropping it on the ground and denting it. I would actually love to use a mason jar for my drinks because I like the way it looks, but I feel like I would destroy so many of them πŸ™‚
