Re: 20p for a plastic bag

It's raw meats they like to bag, in case the "juices" escape, and sometimes small toiletries. I don't bag my fruit and veg anymore, just pile it on loose, sometimes they try to bag that too.

Re: soya

Just a quick update on this, I stopped the soya milk when it ran out. I've worked my way through most of the other non dairy substitutes and not really found one I like as much as soya yet, almond milk is the last one I'm trying. BUT my excema is completely gone :cheers: I haven't been excema free f...

Re: Waterbutt lid!

I got an old black bin lid, turned it upside down so it makes some where for water to collect in, then drilled some holes. 2 house bricks keep it attached in windy weather.

I have no downspout so my water butt collects rainwater this way.

Re: bras and other random hoarding....

I seem to hoard EVERYTHING. I really need to sort the house out. I've filled the under sink cupboards with empty jars (to be fair I do freecycle these once I run out of room and start again). I've got about 3 carriers of toilet rolls tubes and can't think of anything to do with them. There aren't an...

Re: soya

Hmm..is it any different to killing said species and eating them..dunno.. Goat milk only tastes 'goaty' if you: 1. Keep a billy, or at least keep it close to the nannies. 2.Boil the milk. 3.Don't keep muslins,equipment etc. scrupulously clean. Well that's another argument entirely as some animals d...

Re: soya

I thought the use of growth hormones was forbidden in dairy production :scratch: I wasn't trying to avoid added extras, the milk naturally has some hormones in as it is designed for baby cows to grow. Adults don't need milk, it's for infants, and cross species consumption is a little weird if you t...

Re: soya

I've googled all the alternatives I could think of, (oat, rice, hemp, and almond). Hemp seems the most beneficial nutritionally (and the most expensive!). I couldn't see anything about rice milk being evil, it just said it had little protein compared to soya and cow... I just want milk for tea and c...

Re: soya

I've used soya milk instead of cow milk for about 8 years now and for the last 3 (ish) have had severe eczema working it's way all over both hands. I'd not heard of this before. I've had the full set of allergies, asthma and eczema since I was 4, we quit cow milk mainly because we were avoiding grow...
