What could be more tasty than all the fresh fruits in summer? It´s better if you can combine all the different sorts with learning Italian. But it would be best not to confuse them when developing recipes, at least linguistically. Otherwise, the recipe planning ends with a critical look from Fabio, after I, Joelle, started dreaming about peaches with homemade ricotta and thyme “Pesce con Ricotta, che buono! (fish with ricotta, how delicious)” – meant Pesche, peaches. After he finally burst out in loud laughter, it slowly dawned on me that peaches don’t have scales and that the “h” is there for a reason 😉
Paleo Crumble for those with a sweet tooth
Joelle has been doing an additional training as a clinical psycho-neuro-immunologist for a some time now. Complicated word, simply summarized it is about the interaction of all systems in the body and the effect of food on them. Food plays a huge role; many components of our health stand and fall with it. That is why Joelle especially wants to focus more on healthy and “species-appropriate” nutrition with her recipes.
This crumble consists of nuts, which provide valuable fats and keep us full for a long time, as well as honey, which gives a pleasant sweetness without having to use the refined white gold. For the additional happiness booster, there is also cocoa powder, which, among other things, ensures a good mood with the content of theobromine, serotonin and dopamine. In addition, cocoa is a wonderful source of magnesium, especially the slightly de-oiled cocoa powder, which provides 400mg of magnesium per 100g of cocoa – not that someone would eat 100g of cocoa, but smaller amounts also help us to cover the daily requirement to counteract muscle cramps and headache as well as to strengthen our heart.
La pesca – the peach with the beautiful curves
Peaches are sexy miracle packages because they contain an amazing amount of vitamins C, E and K – thus the immune system is strengthened, vitamin E is good for radiant skin and our cardiovascular system is protected due to Vitamin K. They also contain many polyphenols, which are not only responsible for their beautiful vibrant colors, but also for the delicious aroma. And furthermore, they also improve our health. The white fleshed peaches contain plenty of polyphenols, which not only protect the DNA from damage, but also help against cancer and depression. In addition, the oil of the peach seed can be used as an amazing skin care agent.
We wish you a lot of fun preparing this treat and have a wonderful Sunday.
