Editor’s pick: Safe drinking water, no added chemicals
KURO-Bō is a scientifically-proven, plastic-free water filter that uses activated charcoal to filter ordinary tap water by removing the toxins and make your water taste better. Activated charcoal is known to remove lead, aluminium, copper, iron, chlorine, mercury and manganese, as well as E.coli. Research suggests that it also removes other impurities such as viruses, bacteria, pesticides, antibiotics and more. KURO-Bō Sticks and Kōins are ideal for use at home or on the go, so you never have to worry about unsafe tap water again, or polluting the planet with single-use plastic bottles. Simply add the Sticks and Kōins to your water coolers or reusable water bottle. KURO-Bō Kōins are ideal for use on the go. A box of Kōins will last for three months and costs R165. Sticks are R195.

Something sweet on the braai
While we all love falling back on marshmallows over the coals as the dessert of choice after a braai, there are other easy options which are just as delicious. We made baked banana with dark chocolate. The banana becomes sweeter as it cooks and the dark chocolate adds balance. Simply make slits in your banana skin and stuff dark chocolate blocks inside. Place on the grid above the coals while enjoying your main meal and, by the time you are done, your dessert should be ready.
