IKEAs Genius Recipe Posters Make Cooking Effortless With A Simple Trick

IKEA’s mission on this Earth is to stimulate everything simple and comprehensible, which comes in handy for those working of us stumbling through life without a clue. While their furniture sometimes misses the mark, a series of recipes they’ve simply released builds cooking appear easier than Paint By Numbers, and we’re pretty sure we’ll never be able to follow a normal recipe again.

The Canadian branch of the Swedish furniture tycoon teamed up with Toronto-based marketing corporation Leo Burnett to make Cook This Page , an ingenious determine of illustrated recipes which they unveiled at a recent IKEA Canada kitchen event. Each one displays draws of the ingredients needed, and the prospective cook just has to fill in the blanks. The best part? They’re all printed on parchment paper employing food-safe ink, so once everything is in place, the page can be rolled up and flung in the oven. Severely, does it get any lower-maintenance than that?

Cook This Page has yet to reach IKEA storages, but the concept is so brilliant that we suppose it might even supplant the cookbook in due time! Insure it for yourself below, and let us know if you would attempt any of these scrumptious delights.

Nothing like putting down an icy cold brew. Except, of course, achieving a higher state of being and eventual transcendence of the Self through the course of carrying out yoga.

But what if you could do both, at the same time?

Yes: Beer yoga is here. After being are received by Berlin hipsters, it’s now acquired its style to Australian shoresa land where beer’s most definitely a religious practice, at the least as much as yoga. And not in the best way.

Germany’s BierYoga A.K.A BeerYoga bills itself as the “marriage of two great lovesbeer and yoga. Both are centuries-old therapies for mind, body and soul, ” according to its website.

And if you think they’re merely being cute, suppose again.

“BeerYoga is fun but it’s no joke, ” founder and yogi Jhula writes. “We take the doctrines of yoga and pair it with the pleasure of beer-drinking to reach your highest level of consciousness.”

But even Jhula wasn’t the first person to promote enlightenment through yoga under the influence of booze. The instructor told Ex Berliner they first considered it done at( American culture celebration/ desert apocalypse party shitshow) Burning Man.

But wherever it came from, it’s definitely now a thing , and a thing being marketed unironically Down Under.

Two convening of the special session of brew fulfills asana will take place in Sydney this weekend, where students can learn yoga poses involving “beer salutations” and balancing beer bottles on one’s headjust watch out for bottle smashes.

The event page assures would-be attendees that no yoga experience is necessary. Just an “open mind and a love of beer.”

And if you think that all this does nothing to curb binge-drinking and/ or devalues a legitimate and sadly oft-perverted spiritual practice, then you can simply Namaste away.
