The Quest report in May resolves mostly around better and healthier eating in a short, sweet and spoiler-free recap and June preview.
This Quest Report is going to be short – otherwise I’d create way too many spoilers for amazing stuff coming in June. Hint: Lots of interviews! More on understanding textile standards! A couple new design elements!
Exciting times 🙂
10 Quest Goals – Or What I’ve Learned in May
1. My fascination for healing plants has yielded me an unexpected favourite in May: roses.Roses are amazingly powerful plants – whether as a tea or a precious essential oil. Stay tuned for the next Alchemy Lab post 🙂
/FAIL OF THE MONTH
2. They definitely don’t make any mineral foundation to match the colour of my skin 😦 Finding a perfect match failed in April, and it failed again in May. Fail, fail, fail.
3. Matcha Wasabi bars can be tweaked into a healthier and more versatile snack by using custom granola crunch (I suggest pistachios, hemp seed and puffed quinoa – just no added sugar) instead of bretzel crumbles. Check!
4. When veganising cake recipes that include condensed sweetened milk as an ingredient, melted vegan white choc is THE weapon of choice. For the record: White (vegan) choc + matcha make for amazing mini guglhupf cakes, best served with a raspberry and white choc topping.
5. [PRODUCT NEWS] Coconut sugar is now available in powdered sugar quality: great for summer desserts. Checkity-check!!!
6. My favourite hosiery brand are better eco & ethical quality than I’ve ever thought. Brilliant! Check.
7. Organic, fair and metal-free bras are a thing, and they are pretty fabulous, too! Check. (Review soon.)
8. Oil-based toothpaste and salt-based mouth rinse – does it sound crazy? It’s actually the best thing to keep the mouth healthy (and there’s more to come on that topic).
9. [PRODUCT NEWS] Vegan cooking has become even more versatile with absolutely exciting brand new organic plant milk blends (rice-coconut-pineapple!) and sugar-free organic plant-based yogurts (soy-almond, soy-coconut) by Provamel.
10. I’ve reviewed one of two new 11-free Korres nail polishes lately, and the summery coral pink mani is coming next.
…And that’s just the ethical consumer part of the story 🙂
