Toxin-free living is plastic-free living! When I started switching to the most natural living possible, I realized one day that I had accidentally become plastic free!!! When I switched to nutrient-dense real foods, my refrigerator looked drastically different. Instead of plastic containers of condiments and other ready-made food products, the refrigerator housed only real ingredients for cooking: rendered fat, leafy greens & herbs, marinating meat (olive oil & sea salt), and lacto-fermented vegetables in glass jars.
