Since the beginning of December, my hubby and I have been conducting a food experiment. At the end of November we started drinking green smoothies daily and it was then that I realized that we had a lot of food in our fridge and pantry that we never seemed to use up. In a previous life we moved every 4 years and as a result the pantry would be depleted regularly. So, on December 1, we started to consume the contents of our pantry until it is bare. We still buy fresh fruit and vegetables, yogurt, chocolate for Sundays, and frozen fruit and a few staples for our green smoothies. We are also eating out less often. Six and a half months into this experiment, all that remains are 6 packages of dulse, 1 package of wakame, and 1 package of rice noodles. Wakame salad is a new staple to our diet, but I'm not sure what to do with all that dulse since green smoothies have replaced our daily salads. It's been a creative, worthwhile adventure and we haven't gone (that) hungry.
