IN THE KITCHEN WITH CARESTE & ANNA GETTY OF AMALGAM KITCHEN

As we ease into the New Year, we find ourselves settling into our resolutions, and embracing our new lifestyles with vigor.

While we at Careste look at sustainability from the perspective of our clothing with the mission to #EndFashionWaste, our partners Kiss the Ground and Amalgam Kitchen remind us that the food with which we choose to nourish our bodies plays an equally important role in living a sustainable lifestyle.

Anna Getty–Founder of Amalgam Kitchen and executive producer of Kiss the Ground–has pulled together a sampling of delicious, mainly plant-based, low sugar recipes and food inspiration for you. From her garden in Ojai to our stay at home pods, these recipes reinforce our resolutions and further our shared journey of stabilizing the earth and climate...
