Tip of Stefano:

Chanterelles: one of the yummiest mushrooms and very healthy

The chanterelle, also known as the golden chanterelle or girolle, is an edible mushroom which tastes delicious. It has a mild, creamy, peppery flavour. Chanterelles quickly absorb the flavour of whatever is in the vicinity, so be careful what you keep next to them. They should always be stored in a cool, dry place so that they keep for as long as possible. Most of the chanterelles you buy in the supermarket or from specialist shops are harvested wild. Growing chanterelles commercially is particularly difficult because chanterelles grow directly on tree roots. You can buy chanterelles fresh, dried or tinned. Obviously, the healthiest option is to eat fresh chanterelles.

Chanterelles are healthy and perfect for weight loss

Chanterelles are a very healthy variety of mushroom. They are particularly high in protein, vitamin C, calcium and sodium. This makes them very good for your bones and moisture balance and for the production of red blood cells. Trying to lose weight? Chanterelles are low in calories and are therefore perfect to include in your meals when you’re trying to lose weight. They’re also very high in fibre, so they leave you feeling full.

Stefano describes himself as colourful, loud, a vegan, a friend, a discoverer, a digital nomad and straightforward. Stefano changed tack and started to eat and live a healthy vegan lifestyle His life took a wholly different course when he became very ill. At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan. Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan. A vegan eats no animal products whatsoever, taking it a step beyond vegetarianism. Vegans don't eat eggs, dairy products or honey.

“Seitan can be an excellent alternative to red meat in many dishes, and when used in conjunction with the right spices and seasonings, can taste very similar. It’s also loaded with protein — that’s what it is, after all. Wheat protein.” “Hail seitan? Damn right — if you’re looking for an alternative to red meat” cheatsheet.com
