• 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…

  • 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…

  • Açaí smoothie bowl

    Açaí berries are originally from the wild Amazon, and they are small powerhouses of nutrients and energy. We both completely fell in love with this taste after spending time in Brazil, and have been trying to reconstruct the same taste at home. Açaí is very high in antioxidants and has a whole array of health benefits such as containing zinc, copper, manganese, and magnesium. You can make açaí bowls in many different ways, and this smoothie is great for breakfast or after a surf session or workout. It’s a bit bigger and less sweet than the bowls you can buy at the beach in Brazil, but it’s still really good,…

  • Warm, sweet potato smoothie bowl

    Ice cold smoothies are really delicious in the summer, but when it starts getting colder outside it’s also possible to make “warmer” smoothies. Also if you pack them with a lot of bananas they can get too high in sugar and sometimes you just need something a bit more settling. If you mix in sweet potatoes, cauliflowers or even zucchinis, you make the smoothies not also more blood sugar friendly but more filling. Usually when making a smoothie with sweet potato you don’t need bananas or even avocados to make that creamy consistency. This smoothie is perfect after a work out or before bed time as it could make you…

  • 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…

  • Super ice pops

    Summer time is synonymous with delicious ice creams. Even better, they don’t have to be bad for you. These ice creams have too many benefits, you will literally scream for more. They do not contain any dairy, weird additives or unnecessary nonsense.  We have made these in cooperation with Supernature. We have made three different types, all containing some sort of superfood. The rest of the ingredients are all simple stuff that you can get in any food store, so it will be easy for everyone try out the recipes. The three different ice pops are all made just like a smoothie, and then the “mass” is poured into ice cream…
