Zero Waste Recipe // Salsa

Hello everybody! I have another recipe for you, this time for a some packagefree salsa. I already made a recipe for zero waste crisps and zero waste tortilla, so why not salsa as well? It is super easy to make, and I got all the veggies I needed from my green grocer! Today I used the salsa on a piece of naan I made a couple of days back, the same recipe for tortilla, just thicker!

Here is what you need to make salsa, without any package waste! Three-four large tomatoes, garlic, two limes, three-four chilies, half an onion, and some coriander- I know the measurements are quite abstract, but it really all depends on how you want it to taste.

What you do is you take the tomatoes, slice through the skin at the top and boil them for 3 minutes, afterwards peel the skin, it is quite easy if they are boiled. Then chop them in the size you desire. Chop onion, garlic, coriander and chili as well and use the juice from the lime to top it of! I if you it super chunky just mix all the chopped veggies in a bowl, but if you like a bit smoother, like me, mix it for 1 minute in a blender – and that is it, so easy, so tasty and no packaging!

Summer Vibes // Filming Secondhand

Hello everybody! I am filming a new video these days, more specifically I am film a few outfit lookbook which is only consisting of secondhand finds! It is always a lot of fun and the videos like this always end up being a big collection of goofy clips. As you may can see, my hair is a little difference, simply because I brushed out about eight dreads. It feels weird, but I am so happy to have some of my normal hair back. I only brushed out dreads in the front, as I want to keep the dreads in the back. Tonight I am giving an online lecture at CanopyLAB, which I am quite excited about, see more info on the blog’s facebook page. That was all the update worthy mentions for today, I wish you all a wonderful day!

Hello Everybody! I am simply checking in with an awesome inspirational recipe-ish post! Yesterday night I had one of my favourite things – tacos! I have a few must-haves when it comes to creating my perfect taco, btw check out my recipe on how to make a zero waste tortilla here, anyway, spinach is a must, so is cucumber and guac, of course, don’t forget the guac. All the veggies where from my favourite green grocer and I posted a picture on Instagram with the basket and the veggies, as you see above. I am also a sucker for salsa and I will post a zero waste recipe on how to make that soon. I will say I am not above sprinkling a bit of cheddar on top as well, but of course that is completely optional.

Plastic Free Lipstick // Review

Hello everybody! I have been testing a plastic free, and vegan, lipstick from Monomeer.de. I have talked about this site before, in my review of their dental tabs, as a zero waste alternative to toothpaste. I have had lots of problems finding cosmetics without plastic, which is why I have made so much of it myself, but I have never had any luck with lipstick, hence this product saves the day! It comes in a paper wrapping, is vegan and organic! If you want, check out more right here. They have different shades, but I chose a versatile colour, slightly burnt and with a touch of shine. It has become my new everyday essential when it comes to zero waste beauty products and I use it almost everyday –  Plastic free saves the day!
