What would be a perfect Sunday look like?
The perfect Sunday – sleep in, cuddle up with my husband and our dog in bed. If the weather allows, I’d run a few laps around the lake nearby, have a leisurely breakfast and just enjoy the day. We go for a small walk several times a day with our dog Marlo and enjoy nature. Sunday is always the day to do ‘meal-prepping’ for the week ahead, to have a well and relaxed start into a new week.
How do you relax from work?
When I’m stressed from work, I usually go to my kitchen and work me through the recipes in my cookbooks. Cooking allows me to completely relax while listening to loud music and have a facial mask on.
As a smoothie lover – whats your favourite smoothie recipe?
My favorite recipe? Phew, difficult. My smoothies mostly consist of frozen bananas, frozen pineapple, spinach, camu camu, spirulina and some turmeric. Tastes super fresh and is packed with essential nutrients. But I’m also a big fan of smoothies that taste more like desserts, e.g. after chocolate or caramel. The Salted Chocolate Hemp Smoothie by Angela Liddon from her book ‘Oh She Glows Everyday’ is one of my favorites.
425ml almond milk
1 large frozen banana
3-4 large dates, pitted or 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably raw cocoa
3 tablespoons peeled hemp seeds
1 tablespoon of coconut or a nutmeg of your choice (I personally use homemade almonds)
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 or 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
What does Sustainability mean to me?
Sustainability means to me to consume more consciously. Is it in relation to groceries, beauty products, clothing or other things. I always ask myself: “Do I really need this? What impact will my purchase have on the environment? What impact will my purchase have on humankind?” However, I am not perfect when it comes to sustainability. But I give my best and intentionally attempt to make rational decisions that are better for animals, humans and our environment.
Finally, what is your favourite NAYA Product?
What an unfair question :) I honestly have to admit, that all products from the NAYA Range are superb. My favourite at the moment is definitely the Everyday Cleansing Oil. It is super gentle on the skin and removes make-up easily, and even mascara, without irritating the sensitive eye area. Sometimes, I am a little bit tired in the evenings and simply too lazy and not in the mood to use a towel to remove my cleansing oil. With the Everyday Cleansing Oil I can avoid this step. As the Cleansing Oil emulsifies in contact with water and thus can be easily removed with water only. My skin feels super cleaned and soft after I used it.
