Wellbeing Wednesday

How to make almond milk at homeIt’s Wednesday! Why the excitement? Because we’ve got another edition of our regular wellbeing picks for you – we’ve mixed it up this week with some face and hair pampering, two delicious and easy recipes, and the hidden superpowers of some foods – revealed! We love this week’s links and we hope you will too.



Semi mask recipe

Lab Muffin is a recent discovery of ours and we have spent more hours than we care to admit browsing through Michelle’s archives. This clay scrub / semi mask recipe caught our eye – it harnesses all the detoxifying powers of clay and adds a bit of gentle scrubbiness courtesy of oats. We can’t wait to try it!

Coconut and essential oils hair treatment

Coconut oil is a popular hair treatment – and Jade and Michelle’s mermaid hair speak volumes about the results wouldn’t you say? Think of this recipe from Gorgeously Green as intensive care for your hair when it’s in dire need of moisture and oomph. With the cooler weather upon us, now is the perfect time to treat your hair to some coconut TLC!

Home-made almond milk

Whether you’re trying to avoid dairy or just looking for a bit of variety, you should give almond milk a try. Our long-life pick of choice is Unsweetened Almond Breeze, but making your own is easy and very tasty, not to mention customisable (think spices, honey, even cocoa!). This recipe from Annette gives step by step instructions – and a delicious tip on what to do with your left-over almond meal!

A spin on our beloved green smoothie

A different take on a versatile classic – with just two ingredients. Try this coconut-spinach smoothie for a change: it makes a filling lunch and would also be great for breakfast.

Foods that pack an antibiotic punch

Now that cold and flu season is upon us, every little bit helps when it comes to boosting your immunity. Including these super-hero foods into your diet regularly can be an extra insurance policy against the miscellaneous viruses and bugs you’ll be coming across.

How about a night in with a clay and oatmeal semi mask and coconut hair treatment, sipping warm home-made almond milk? Doesn’t that sound wholesome?
