 Cacao-ll me for a Date  #cacao covered #dates are a super tasty & nutritious treat, and go reaaaaallllyyy well with hot spiced/mulled drinks like #gløg/#wine/#applecider & the holiday season   Simply roll fresh, #organic dates in cacao powder, and serve. They also make a wicked #foodie gift 🤤 I could go on, but someone’s cacaolling me... . . . . #eatclean #holidayseason #gift #holisticnutrition #holistichealth #gastropost #foodporn #recipe #treat #cookathome  Post by #bike in #Denmark - even in December.

 “It’s takes courage to be vulnerable in a world like this” #streetart in #copenhagen making us stop and slow down  #artyardcph #positivcph  When you stumble across #avocado toast in #CzechRepublic, you smile hard! ##🥑#🇨🇿 @bistroboulezausima #ostrava #czech #brunch #avocadotoast
 Local, Organic, Zero Waste #groceries are totally an option in #Copenhagen! LØS Market @loesmarket in #Vesterbros makes it simple! Bring your own containers, weigh them, then fill ‘em up with #packagefree goods. They also sell reusable jars (beautiful glass #weck jars), #GOTS certified produce/grain bags, and have a selection for free in case you need one! Besides produce, grains, nuts, flours, eggs, spices, coffee, tea, and oil, they have all the soap you need, from dishes to the shower, among some other goodies! You can even slice your own bar of soap from a larger one! #Vancouver has yet to have a #zerowaste grocery store, but NADA is on the way - keep your eyes peeled for their opening @nadagrocery (WE. ARE. SO. PUMPED). In my basket from #løsmarket: - bananas - oranges - apples - mushrooms - cucumber - avocado (guaranteed) - yams - eggs - popcorn - pasta - coffee (in a @weckjars I purchased) Thank you for your hard work and persistence in getting this Zero Waste shop going, and thank you to all the Danes who are choosing to slow down while shopping, consume less, consume consciously, create less waste, and consider where their food is coming from #♻️#✌# . . . . . #sustainablelifestyle #sustainableliving #sustainabilityISwellness #sustainability #gogreen #københavn #denmark #ecohealth #sustainablefood #slowfood #slowdown #consciousconsumer #foodsystems #whogrewyourfood #organic #shoplocal #danish  Not the nicest day in #Copenhagen, and not feeling so hot (we all got a  recently, and are still trying to recover) - so I’m pretending to be back in #Krakow at Cheder, having a slice of Orange Almond cake # , and Turkish Coffee #☕️(with #cardomom) in a #cezve (traditional pot), surrounded by #books, and #GunnarThePooch of course #. This memory is brining me all the #hygge feels  . . . . . #passionpassport #poland #jewishquarter #turkishcoffee #coffee #butfirst #coffeeandcake #dogfriendly #cheder #eatlocal #buylocal #goexplore #wanderlust #travel #europe #dog #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram #krakowdogs #cafe
  If you get a #christmastree, choose one that is in a pot so you can use it for years and/or plant it in a forest so it can continue giving back to this earth. The second best option is a cut live tree - make sure you bring the tree to get chipped/composted afterwards so it can give back to the earth. A #Plastic tree should be avoided at all costs, since it will make the air inside your home polluted with #VOCs by off-gassing, as well as contain #xenoestrogens that play harmful games with your #hormones, along with countless other scary chemical compounds. #PlasticIsForever, so once you are done, even #recycling the tree “properly” still means the #toxicplastic exists in on earth in some form. ##🇩🇰 . . . . . #gogreen #livingtree #pottedtree #christmas #christmastree #sustainableliving #sustainability #sustainabilityISwellness #ecohealth #denmark #canada #nomoreplastic #hormonehealth #wellness #consciousconsumer #copenhagen #vancouver #nature #trees #knabstrup #traditions   #WindPower is ALL over #Germany #🇩🇪providing #CleanEnergy! . . . . #renewables #renewableenergy #greenenergy #sustainability #climatechange #globalwarming #gogreen #cop21 #europe
