Tip of Stefano:

Using camu camu superfood powder. What is the superfood camu camu and why is it so healthy?

Camu camu powder is made from the purple-red fruit of the camu camu, a bushy tree which mainly grows in the Amazon region. The cherry-like fruit are actually too acidic to eat, but are delicious in powdered form. You can add camu camu powder to smoothies, fruit juice, or just a plain glass of water, and it also tastes great in desserts and yoghurt.

The healthy properties of camu camu superfood

The main property of camu camu is its high ascorbic acid content, better known as vitamin C. Unripe camu camu fruit contains about 2.5% vitamin C. That’s around 50 times more than an orange! The fruit also contains large quantities of beta-carotene. But camu camu contains so much more. This tiny fruit also contains generous amounts of vitamins B1 and B2, calcium, iron, phosphorus and potassium. Camu camu powder is best known for its effectiveness in fighting the herpes virus which causes cold sores. Also, the powder works as a sort of natural antidepressant.

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.

“Always buy the best quality seitan. The seitan you find in your average supermarket is often very tough. Seitan should have a tender texture. Organic health stores stock delicious seitan (I don’t often like to mention a brand, but Bertyn’s seitan is excellent).” groeneprinses.be
