Weekend Roundup: Life Without a Fridge Edition!

Since one of my goals is to give up using a Fridge to reduce our carbon footprint I thought it would be good timing to do a weekend roundup on this concept.

While Americans may find this idea hard to conceive, when you look at the larger picture Ameicans are pretty spoiled with having refridgeration! Living without one, while hard in the beginning to give up old habits, it CAN be done. Not only that but eating and drinking room temperature beverages is actually better for our bodies!


So here we go, hope you enjoy and gain some insights to this idea!
