Life in purple corn
,Beta-carotene, iron, vitamin B3 , fiber, calcium, zinc, protein ; just a touch of what this super fruit, loved by the Incas, can release on you. How many folks get type 2 diabetes from lucuma?
We are currently introducing new peculiar plant- based creations, notable via rare ingredients. We are talking about complete proteins ( stuff easy for your body to digest ) mainly cultivated organically. Superfood belongs to a niche market, still not fully exploited in a mainstream commercial way, hence the benefit of low pesticides in their cultivation.
Lucuma has a particular aroma and comes in a deep orange powder. Vivid green is pure barley grass, differently from the intensity and the dark green of matcha and spirulina.
I have been told that purple corn gifts you a hint of whiskey and purple vegetables are usually high in antioxidants. All these colourful foods contain anthocyanins, pigments which can be red, purple or blue and able to stimulate tissue regeneration, encourage blood flow and act as an anti-inflammatory.
What a time to be alive! We got the technology and in the pristine matter of living, health always comes first.
I am doing my research and we like to experiment, to be the avant-garde, the surrealists, the postmodernism of bread & butter. A nori-nori millefeuille is in the making; colourful layers of superfood separated by laminated toasted seaweed.... Close your eyelids! Can you visualise the dream of green, purple,black & white, all sweet, aromatic and perfumed.... It's all without the iniquity of industrialised food: sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, vegan, paleo... whatever!
Wee news on the media side: the Greenwich Market Cookbook has been published with two of our recipes included. Available on Waterstone's and Amazon, the two medical prescriptions for our gluten-free chocolate financier and our paleo Plein Arome.
Market news: for the eight year in a row, the posh hot cross bun tour is on this Easter weekend.
Happy Easter and don't forget that, as the story goes, Jesus died only to be resurrected. He gave his body a second chance and you can do it furthermore... with purple corn!
