At Luna & Rose, we truly believe sharing inspiration, tips and tricks is the best way to evolve on our journey to sustainability. Learning from each other is an endless source to progress and we've definitely learned a lot while reading Anita Vandyke's A Zero Waste Life: in thirty days.

Cabbage without Mayo. It's extremely hard to come by but when you find it, oooh weee life is good! If you're one of the 0.2% of the population who also hates Mayonnaise, welcome. If you're still a traditional slaw lover... Stick with me, this delicious, crunchy, fresh Cabbage Salad will have you second guessing how you'll next serve up your crunchy greens!
Tangy, Fresh & oh so cleansing. Munching away on this Green Pea salad feels good for the soul & light on the belly rather than the hefty weight we can often feel when we overindulge at this time of year! The mix of Tangy Feta, Fresh Mint, Crunchy Peas & a zesty lemon dressing... This Salad is the perfect accompiant to a Summer BBQ, Christmas Meat-festival and a good old go-to when you're feeling like you need to get some greens in you!
These spiced nuts have been rolling around my families house at Christmas time ever since I can remember. Deliciously crunchy, mostly healthy and a moreish treat, these nuts make for great gifts as well as to have on hand around Christmas time when lots of friends and family pop in to visit. You can add more of each spice and less of others depending on your personal preference, but be sure to whip the egg whites to perfection!
