Now you’ve completed the no-egg waste dinner party showstopper, it’s time to sit back, relax and take care of you. Minimising egg waste doesn’t have to stop at just edible dishes, it can also stretch to beauty and self-care, which is just as important as enjoying a delicious dish or two. In this round of blogs, we want to show you what you can do with eggs to take care of your hair, skin and nails, as well as your gut, all whilst minimising food waste. After a long week of work, we think a little “me time” is in order.
Below is our quick and healthy recipe for avocado and egg white breakfast toast, as well as an egg facial mask to pack some much-needed moisture back into your skin, and leave your skin healthy, smooth and glowing.
Tip: If you want to save the other half of the avocado for later, leave the pit in and brush a little lemon juice over the flesh so it delays the browning process.
Now that your stomach is lined and nourished, it’s time to take care of your skin and complete the self-care morning routine.
As an additional step to use the whole egg, you can crush the shell into a powder and mix into the face mask as an exfoliator.
If your partner, friend, or family member doesn’t want to join in on the self-care routine, feel free to half the recipe or store the facial mixture in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days to use again.
Self-care has never felt so good! Not only are you taking some much needed time for yourself to enjoy deliciously light dishes and hydrate your skin, you are also minimising the food waste in the process. Here at Purely Organic, we want to help you to make small changes that will eventually have a big impact on our planet. Keep your eyes peeled for the next egg white and self-care recipe, putting yourself and the planet first.
