Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal.
Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it is much easier than you think! You don’t need seeds or anything fancy. You can simply use kitchen scraps from your next meal. How great is that!
Everyone should honestly know this.

Quick, someone point me to the posts where they explain why MCU Steve Rogers* is lawful good. I ran into someone saying he’s chaotic good and … yeah, I need the pro-lawful good reference.
The way I see it, chaotic good is closer to a well-meaning anarchist. Someone who doesn’t care for structure, someone who would never choose to fight injustice from within the system, someone who’d fight the system and only work alongside it (not quite *with* the system) when a greater injustice could only be prevented that way and that way alone.
MCU Steve Rogers fought time and time again to join the system. He didn’t even try to find an alternative way to fight. He didn’t want to be an outsider trying to do the right thing - he saw his own intrinsic value as tied to being able to join in and comply with what the system required of his healthier peers. He wanted to be in there, to do his part as one of many. He refused to take no for an answer and do anything less than he believed was right: joining the army. Of course, MCU Steve Rogers’ reasons for wanting to join the army are not entirely idealistic, his sense of self-worth, his self-esteem is hopelessly entangled with his desire to do what he believes is right, to do his duty. I’m not sure if a chaotic good character would even think on terms of duty.
MCU Steve Rogers is not against structure. That lovely Chris Evans quote about him being like a shepherd dog comes to mind.
Lawful good does not mean blind obedience to the system, or thinking the system itself is above reproach. It means you think it’s the best way to achieve your goals. Lawful good does not imply you can’t question rules or regulations. It does mean you can - and in fact, should - go against them when they’re patently unfair because an unfair, unjust law is no actual law at all.
I think a chaotic good character would be against the existence of an organisation like S.H.I.E.L.D. on principle and would, most likely, try to stop any replacement from being created. MCU Steve Rogers is (eventually) against it because it’s proven to be corrupt, unsafe and harmful to society at large, and thus it must be rebuilt again from scratch, not because he’s against the idea of such an organisation existing in the first place.
It’s always important to keep in mind no one, not even fictional characters, fits neatly and perfectly into a type. We’re talking about tendencies here, not perfect compliance.
*I’m leaving 616 Steve Rogers out of this discussion to make my life easier, for the time being.
I am totally gonna make a post about the prolific use of self-hatred in fandom and fanwork output, but for now I’mma just link to toujoursher’s commentary as well because it is as always awesome. And I don’t want to hijack the AO3 tag informational post for…
