Between my 40m2 flat in Paris and the province where I work, I have to be really organised. I don’t have much time to shop for groceries. So I do it in my neighbourhood. I mostly buy food in bulk.
Anwesha, age 30, lives in Paris She never forgets to bring back spices when she hops over to see her family in Bombay. The young woman, who is also an avid reader, strikes a balance by eating organic and adopting a green attitude whenever she can.
Eating healthy takes a bit of thought: I don’t have much time to shop for groceries. I buy the right amounts in bulk and keep my organic food in glass jars. No plastic bags.
Fruits and vegetables never stay in my fridge for long, to keep their vitamins intact. Into the blender and my detox smoothie is ready.
On weekends I take an hour to prepare soup. I keep it in a tall glass container with a pouring spout, which fits into the fridge door. I also use it for sugar or my organic flour.
My friends giggle about my hoarding of bottles and jars, but they love it when I turn them into glasses for vitamin-filled cocktails.
Imagine my cousin’s face when she saw my 40m2! No choice but to find clever jars! Mine can be stacked and the removable lids click together.
I choose nice designs so that I can put my salad bowls on the table when we have guests for dinner. And I often give some as presents to my friends!
