Everyone knows that I'm a big fan of environmentally friendly projects, but this time I'm really in love with this perfect combination of beauty and nature! Coconut Bowls is a beautiful project that recycle coconut shells and transform them into eco-friendly bowls. Of the billions of coconuts harvested each year for the coconut products industries, 99% of their shells are discarded and burned as waste. So, this project reclaims coconut shells from companies that no longer use it after extracting the coconut flesh and water. Then, Coconut Bowls' craftsman cut, clean and sand the coconut shells, giving life to amazing bowls that you can eat from. Plus, each bowl is finished with an organic virgin coconut oil polish, giving them a great look. Each coconut bowl has its own shape, size and (im)perfections, so when you buy one, nobody else in the world will have a bowl like yours!
Coconut Bowls supports fair trade practices and have workshops in Indonesia and Vietnam, they are also planning to expand this to other countries and employ more people from the local communities. What is better than 100% natural bowls? They are eco friendly, reusable and super easy to clean! Oh, and did I tell you they also have forks, spoons, bamboo straws and amazing candles? Everything made by nature!
I love to use Coconut Bowls for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the size is just perfect and they look absolutely beautiful!
Now, for the greedy minds, here's my delicious buddha bowl recipe from the pictures:
ingredients - 2 buddha bowls
200g smoked tofu
3 sweet mini peppers
10 baby tomatoes
1 spoon coconut oil
marjoram, basil, black pepper, soya sauce
1. Rinse the quinoa under cold running water. Tip into a pan, add double the amount of water, and let it boil for 20 min (medium heat). Drain any water.
2. Cut the smoked tofu in thin slices and the sweet mini peppers into tiny cubes. Put the peppers in a hot frying pan with coconut oil (you can also use olive oil) and let it cook for 2 min. Add the smoked tofu and season it with marjoram, basil and black pepper. After 2min add the soya sauce and turn off the heat.
3. Wash and cut the avocado, tomatoes and lime.
4. Put the quinoa and then the tofu in the bowl. Add the tomato, avocado and lime. Finally have fun with the toppings.
Squeeze the lime into the bowl and enjoy the fresh flavours!
