Factory farming conditions and antibiotic-resistant pathogens emerging as a result of them pose an existential threat to humans in the form of zoonotic diseases. Why it’s time to produce and consume food more thoughtfully.
Biscuits with cocoa and pumpkin seeds
Biscuits with cocoa and pumpkin seeds are perfect to match a cup of tea at breakfast.
50 g of pumpkin seeds
250 g of spelt flour
30 g of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoonful of baking powder
1/2 teaspoonful of powdered cinnamon
a pinch of paprika
30 ml of oil
10 ml of oat milk
10 g of brown sugar
1 spoonful of barley malt
50 g of dark chocolate
Preheat the oven at 180°C. Place the pumpkin seeds on a tray covered with greaseproof paper and put the tray into the oven. Roast them for about 10 minutes. Let them cool.
In the meantime, put the flour, cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon and paprika in a big bowl. Using a mixer, beat the brown sugar, barley malt, oil and oat milk. Combine the eggs, one at a time, keeping on beating. Run the mixer at a lower speed and add the dry ingredients mixing until all the ingredients are well combined. Add dark chocolate cut into chunks and the pumpkin seeds.
Create a few balls with a spoon and lay them on a tray covered with greaseproof paper. Cook for 15-20 minutes until the biscuits with cocoa and pumkin seeds are slightly cooked externally. Let them cool.
The world of cinema recognises the link between food choices and the climate crisis by offering vegan menus for awards season events, including at the most important of them all: the Oscars.
Let’s look at the reasons behind the growth of veganism in India, as a small yet vocal section of the population turns towards this diet and lifestyle in the largest milk producing country in the world.
In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
Quality ingredients, no artificial colouring and hydrogenated fats. These are the main features of a great ice cream. But what makes an ice cream parlour “good”, i.e. sustainable?
