On June 18, the Day of Sustainable Gastronomy is celebrated, and for this reason, we chat with an expert in the field such as our Business Director, Carolina Morán, who also brings you a simple, sustainable and refreshing flavored water recipe for these hot days.
“For me, sustainable cooking and eating is based on these pillars: On the one hand, maximum use and reuse of ingredients. On the other, the use of seasonal, organic and Km 0 products, which provide the maximum number of nutrients, economic savings and cause less polluting impact by avoiding transport by shopping nearby).In addition, it is important to eat what is necessary, not to overeat, as happens in the first world where there are related diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes… A situation which collides with what happens in the third world, where they die of hunger. And, finally, we must demand as a responsible consumer to know the origin and the way of growing our food. We have to avoid pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, chlorine, sulphites, etc, in our food, since all this affects what we eat and our health”, explains Carolina Morán.

Simple flavored water recipe
You just need:
1 pitcher of filtered water
4/ 5 organic strawberries
Choose 4 or 5 strawberries from your box, the “least pretty” and ripest, the ones that a priori would end up in the trash.
Wash and cut in half.
Now take 4 or 5 strawberries that you intend to eat for dessert and cut the part of the green leaves.
Wash and cut into large pieces ¼ cucumber.
You only have to fill a jug or glass bottle with water and put the ugly strawberries, the green tails, the cucumber pieces inside and put it in the fridge.
When you are thirsty you will have a drink of water with a lot of flavor in the fridge! Enjoy it!
