Guy Fawkes Day, held annually on 5 November, is known for dazzling displays of fireworks – also on our Cape beaches. And while pretty to look at, these fireworks leave a massive mess in their wake, and this litter lands up in the ocean with disastrous consequences for marine life. This year, the beachhouse wines will be partnering with Clean C to rid our beaches of the debris caused by fireworks and restore them to their natural, pristine state.

Best Buddha bowls with the beachhouse wines

So what is the story behind one of biggest health food crazes in recent times? For all its spiritual allusions, Buddha bowls mainly consist of small portions of highly nutritious foods, styled for visual appeal. Buddha bowls recipes incorporate the eating principles of Chinese and Japanese medicine and include raw or roasted veggies, beans, a whole grain, like brown rice or quinoa, and sometimes fish, with every meal. This way of eating is believed to reduce toxins in the body and lower your risk of chronic diseases. It’s all about balance really, getting all the nutrients your body needs in the right (small) amounts on one plate.
