• The ultimate guide to a month without plastic and why you should try

    As we started becoming aware of the world’s plastic problem, we played around with the thought of going plastic-free for a whole month. This would be our ultimate challenge, not only to see how much plastic we actually use in our everyday lives but also to find out what barriers exist in our modern society and in what areas we should seek out change. The idea was good and our intentions even better, but we always found reasons not to begin. We wanted to wait until the summer, thinking that would be easier with warmer weather (isn’t everything?), we wanted to plan it better, and we wanted to ease into…

  • Turmeric latte, hot chocolate and frothy matcha

    These are our three favorite warm drinks for the winter months. They all have different tastes and benefits and are super nourishing and delicious. The turmeric and matcha latte is a great substitute for coffee in the morning, as they boost your energy. We have written more about matcha here. Hot chocolate is more of a soothing evening drink. You just have to try them all! Turmeric latte (1 person, 5 minutes) 1 cup plant-based milk 1/2 tbs grounded turmeric 1 tbs grated ginger root 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1 pinch black pepper How to Heat up the milk in a casserole, but make sure it doesn’t boil.

  • Eco-friendly 5 minute homemade hemp milk

    This is the recipe for a milk that is not only plant-based, high in protein, full of healthy fats and tasty, it’s also really environmental friendly! As people who don’t flow with regular milk, the lactose-free or vegan options in the grocery stores have been a favorite for many years. Sadly, many of the cartons are not possible to recycle, so we were producing more trash than necessary. When we discovered this we decided it was time to try making our own. In contrast to many other homemade plant milk recipes, this is actually really easy and it only takes five minutes! You don’t need a strainer or a cheesecloth…

  • 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,…
