Did you know that the vegan diet has the lowest carbon footprint? Being aware of this fact brings me so much satisfaction as I love knowing that my food and lifestyle choices make a difference to our planet and for generations to come.
Think all things natural. Think whole foods, raw foods, health foods, plant-based, organic, superfoods, gluten-free, eco-friendly…The list goes on! Being a vegan means your diet is power packed full of most if not all of these buzz words!
To be vegan means consuming not only a plant-based diet but some of us will also integrate our beliefs into our lifestyle choices, wearing clothes, shoes, and using cosmetics that are cruelty-free and free of any animal ingredients.

Did you ever think to expand on this lifestyle choice and look at recycled or sustainable kitchenware? To start with, look no further than the humble coconut bowl! This bowl is clearly eco-friendly, made from natural fibers and each one would be recycled of course….not to mention they look so pretty!
The contents of my tutti frutti minty coconut bowl will make your mouth water and tantalize your tastebuds. The incandescence indigo fills up the bowl to its brim, the colour is so luscious from the anti-oxidant rich blueberries, pear and banana combination.
The velvety texture of this smoothie bowl makes each mouthful a delightful experience; its healthy ‘nicecream’ consistency from the frozen fruits makes for a completely guilt-free yet utterly delicious meal. Each spoonful floats with you up to heaven and back!
- 1/4 cup mixed frozen berries

Being vegan, we are mindful at each meal that we are balancing our diets and are aware of the macronutrient ratio that we consume.
This yummy coconut bowl of goodness provides us with the nutritious good fats from the almond nuts and milk, the perfect amount of carbohydrates from the banana and is an excellent protein source thanks again to the almonds plus also from the quinoa puffs sprinkled on top.
Who would have thought something so pretty could contain so much nutrition? Enjoy!
