This post brought to you by Carton Smart. All opinions are 100% mine.

 With all the cooking and baking going on at the holidays did you ever stop to think how much is being wasted? I don’t mean food wise, but actually all the packaging. In this day and age of sustainable resources, many the items we cook with come in packaging that is not sustainable.
Pacific Foods has set out to change that with the Tetra Pak. Why Tetra Pak cartons are pantry staples for those that enjoy living smart:
• Tetra Pak® cartons are made of 70% paper, a renewable resource, from selectively harvested, re-grown trees that are FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council)
• Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans…or even an egg!
• Cartons are space saving, easy to store and open. Keep your pantry neat and toss your can openers. , stackable and space-saving.
• The unique packaging process preserves the flavor and nutrients of food without the use of preservatives.Product quality is exactly the way it was intended to be.
• Recyclable and in fact result in 60% less landfill waste than cans
• Cartons are re-closable so you can use what you need and save the rest for later.

I am always looking for better ways to eat and to save money. So I teamed up with Pacific Foods this holiday season to show how using these items in recipes can be better not only for you but the environment as well.

They sent me some the basic items we use during the holidays: Chicken Stock, Pumpkin Puree, and Cranberry Sauce. I decided to use the chicken stock into a very savory cornbread recipe. Instead of using beer, I substituted it with chicken stock to give the cornbread more flavor.
