We believe that sustainable living can be easily incorporated into the lives of everyday people.
One of the easiest ways to do this is to upgrade everyday practices, including simple acts like the ingredients you cook with and the toothbrush or toothpaste that you brush your teeth with.
So without further ado, here are three of our top sustainable food recipes:
1. Roasted Cauliflower coupled with Red Pepper Sauce.
Using this super easy recipe, all you need is a whole cauliflower, olive oil, and spices of your choosing.
Simply roast the cauliflower, drizzle some olive oil and spices on it lightly, and pop it in the oven until it appears golden brown.
Pair it with a sauce of your choice (we recommend something spicy for that extra zest!).
2. Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
For this simple recipe, you’ll need two cups of flour, a single tablespoon of baking soda, a pinch of salt, half a cup of sugar, half a cup of canola oil, a fourth of a cup of water, a few drops of vanilla extract and a whole cup of delicious vegan chocolate chips.
The fun part is mixing it all together.
Combine everything and mix it well, making sure that there are no lumps. While a regular fork should work fine, you can also use a whisk to help you mix it.
Use a parchment paper-based baking sheet to lie your cookies on. You can make your cookies however large or small you want, just make sure to space them out from each other by a few inches.
Freeze these for half an hour, heat your oven to 375, and pop your cookies in!
Rotate them periodically until you see the edges are golden brown, then take them out and leave them out to cool. Last step: dig in!
3. Chocolate Chia Pudding—in just five minutes!
To make your vegan Chocolate Chia Pudding, you need 50-70 g of Chia seeds, about 400 ml of almond milk, hazel milk, or even oat milk, 4 tablespoons of Cacao powder, 1.5 tablespoons of maple syrup, a few drops of vanilla extract, some fruit slices and a pinch of salt.
Combine all the ingredients in your bowl using your trusty whisk.
Now that all the prep is complete in as little as five minutes, you want to cover it with cling film and leave it to freeze over for at least 3-5 hours, and if you want, you can even leave it to cool overnight.
Wake up the next day and enjoy your pudding.

Many people don't know this, but plastic toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes are destroying the planet we live on and not conducive to vegan or sustainable living at all.
It's the small changes we make that create the biggest impact years from now. Make your change today with our eco-friendly oral care and toothy tabs. Have you tried a plastic-free toothbrush and toothpaste alternative?
