Hi.

I am a travelling Vegan Chef and Yoga Teacher. I live mostly between Bali and Norway. My Food Philosophy is expanding along with my inner growth. I am seeing an important connection between both the physical and emotional bodies to be healthy through nutrition. Emotional nourishment through food plays such an important role in ones wellbeing.

Ice creamy Pumpkin sweetness!

Ice creamy Pumpkin sweetness!

Who doesn't love Ice cream? This ice cream has the creaminess and flavour of Ice cream made with milk, but does not come with the negative side effects. The typical Ice cream we usually eat, unless it is made very fresh and naturally, is full of colouring agents, emulsifiers, unhealthy oils, high in sugar content and flavouring that we don't even know where it stems from. When I ate Ice cream it would leave me with a belly ache and the feeling of having something glue-like in my belly. I would feel indigested, tired and bloated.

Let's go for the real thing instead! This Ice cream is well balanced with pumpkin, which is easy on the stomach, the coconut milk gives it the creamy texture, the warming spices stimulates digestion and the date-caramel sauce gives it the sweetness to satisfy you sweet-tooth.

Some nutritional facts from the world of Ayurveda; an ancient Indian traditional natural medicine, who looks at the whole being; the body, mind and spiritual dimensions of a person. Pumpkin is said to reduce stress, it has laxative properties, is cleansing on the liver and contains beta-carotene which is what gives the orange color. Beta-carotene is a natural source of vitamin A; necessary for proper formation of bones and skin and is good for  eye vision.

The spice mixture has heating qualities that supports digesting the coconut milk and pumpkin. Nutmeg has a calming quality, while ginger stimulates digestion and soothes the stomach, and cinnamon calms the stomach and combat nausea and diarrhea.
