Rosy vanilla wholefoods slice to celebrate the launch of Schmidt’s Naturals
Our home has slowly transitioned to more plant based foods over the past couple of years, and more natural approaches to body, skin and home care too. I (try to!) do my best to create a holistic lifestyle for myself and the fam, so today I’m taking ingredient inspiration from one natural product into the next, and look yes I know deodorant may seem left of field to then think about in the context of food BUT Schmidt’s Naturals includes beautiful, mineral and plant based ingredients such as coconut, vanilla and rose in their formulations and I thought that was a pretty wonderful inspo for something of a similar nature in the kitchen.
I’ll be packing these snacks and Schmidts Rose and Vanilla Deodorant in my hospital (and everywhere…) bag in the weeks to come.
