• Three easy vegan recipes with VegMe

    There was a time in our lives that a plant-based diet was far from what we considered an easy, healthy and delicious way to cook. It was definitely more of a habit than a conscious choice. After entering into the plant world we have definitely figured out how much insanely good food that can be made with vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, herbs, and spices. When VegMe launch plant-based alternatives that resemble animal-based products, they created an easier way for meat-lovers out there to transition a meal here and there into a green one – which is waaay better for the earth and your health! Today we want to share the ways…

  • VegMe – Vegan, healthy & sustainable nachos for the win!

    [AD] You might have heard that eating more plant-based and less meat is good for your health, but did you know that it’s also amazing for the planet and the animals? Or maybe you’re already on the veggie train but your boyfriend or friends are really skeptical to eat a whole meal without meat because they think that they will suffer from protein deficiency? Let’s just say we have experienced all the scenarios and the solution to this problem has arrived! We have teamed up with VegMe to show you how to make the most delicious plant-based meals which are both filling, nourishing, juicy and sustainable. VegMe is originally from Sweden made…

  • How to store fresh herbs

    We use lots of fresh herbs for almost every meal, but keeping them fresh for longer than a couple of days feels like quite a struggle. During the plastic-free month, we have been looking for alternatives to the herbs that are wrapped in plastic, and have found these nice little bouquets in fruit&veg shops across town. We have tried a few different things, and have landed on a trick to keep them fresh longer.  How to keep herbs fresh The trick is to cut off the ends as soon as you get home, just as you do with certain types of flowers. Then, pop them in a glass of fresh…

  • Easy homemade oat milk

    One of the biggest improvements we have had during this month without plastic is the reduction of food packaging. We usually bought a liter of plant-based milk once or two times a week as we both love to make warm drinks such as hot chocolate, matcha latte, and turmeric latte during the freezing winter. Check out some recipes for that here! Anyways, now we have entered into the world of homemade milk – which is actually doable for anyone, it’s super cheap, and so so so good for you and the planet.  Oat milk (1 liter) 200 grams oats (we use organic, gluten-free) 1 liter water A pinch of sea salt…

  • How to make homemade nut butter

    Nut butter may be close to the best snack on the planet. It is great to have on top of smoothies or oat porridge and also tastes really great together with banana or dates. It is certainly an important hack during plastic-free February, as we can buy them in bulk and store them in glass containers.  Nut butter can be made from any type of nut really, all you need is a food processor or a really strong blender. Due to the environmental issues related to overconsumption of nuts such as almonds, we recommend that you vary your choice of nuts. Nuts are a great source of proteins and healthy fats, and…

  • Caramel granola & super-green power smoothie

    When considering having a plastic-free week or month, food is definitely one of the main challenges. Therefore, we thought we would share a breakfast recipe that is plant-based, full of nutrients, easy to make, and where all the ingredients should be available without plastic wrapping (if you go to the right places of course!). Caramel granola We always make these kinds of granolas without any proper measurement of the ingredients, and you should feel free to adjust and add more of what you like. Ingredients Coconut flakes (can be bought in paper bag or glass container in bulk shops) Gluten-free oats Sunflower seeds Pumpkin seeds Flax seeds Coconut oil (1-2…
