HEALTHY RECIPES
One of the main elements of living a healthy life is reducing exposure to toxins. When it comes to Easter, everyone has fun dyeing and decorating eggs, but are the dyes that you are using safe?

Bellow are some ideas of all natural egg dyes that you can find in your kitchen.

After preparing the dyes the principle is the same: place the boiled eggs in the dye and leave for a while, check them frequently until you get the intensity you would like. The longer they stay the more intense colour they get. You can add a finishing touch by rubbing the eggs in a cloth with some oil for a glossy finish or leave them with mat finish. If you want more defined colour use white shelled eggs, brown shelled eggs will change the outcome of the colour and you can use them to create variations in shades.

Pink – beetroot
In 1 cup of boiled water, add 1 sliced beetroot and 2 tea spoons of vinegar. Leave it to cool and use it as egg dye.  
Blue – red cabbage
