    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…

    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…

    Coconuts

    This yoghurt is amazing for coconut lovers, people who cannot eat regular yoghurt, with tummy troubles, vegans, or just if you find it exciting to make stuff from scratch. With the added probiotics it contains good bacteria for the gut, which we all need. Making coconut yoghurt is SO much easier than it sounds! The most complicated part is that it takes some time for the probiotics to work its magic, so the yoghurt has to stay somewhere cool and dark for a day or two after you have mixed the ingredients together. Probiotic coconut yoghurt 2 cans of full fat coconut yoghurt 4 probiotic capsules How to? Let the…

    Smoothie parfait with chia seeds

    This yummy breakfast might look like something that’s hard to create, but it’s really not. You don’t need that many ingredients, and can of course make the smoothie in any way you like. By mixing in some chia “pudding” you get a super nutritious meal that gives you a lot of energy to take on the new day. These tiny seeds come from a plant that is similar to mint, which is called Salcia Hispanica, grown in Southern America. Back in the day, the Aztecs and Mayans used these seeds alot, and the name actually means “strenght” in Mayan. Today, they have become popular all over the world due to their…
