“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”
Did you know that 21st September is International Coffee Day?
Contradictory urban myths about coffee makes this most popular drink both good and bad for our health. But where do we stand when we have to come to a decision whether to drink coffee or to give it up? As most of the time the truth lies somewhere in between.
There are several studies that show that coffee is a helpful substance to drink because it speeds and supports our metabolism making of caffeine, when taken in small amounts, a substance that can support good health especially in correlation with coronary heart disease. Research in fact has shown that this is particularly related to female cardio-vascular health. The importance is not whether you take coffee but how you take it: in few words how you brew it and what you add to it.
I am a coffee drinker, but only of espresso Italian style, not only because I am actually Italian, but because the methos of brewing is fast and only a small amount of caffeine percolates through the filter. I am, on the other hand, not a fan of slow coffee pecolators or French-style press down coffee makers.
Other research, instead, shows that coffee has negatve effects on bone health, liver and adrenal function. In my experience, a growing number of people have also tested intolerant to coffee.
The choice is very difficult, but overall I advocate for a small qualtity of coffee, fast percolated Italian-style. Best if you know that you’re not intolerant to it, and if you do not suffer from osteoporosis or adrenal fatigue. Like in all things, a small quantity occasionally is always a god answer.
Do you want to find out whther coffee agrees with you? Why not treating yourself to a Food Intolerance Test this September, and take an advantage of the September offer?

RECIPE OF THE MONTH
Poached eggs in savoy cabbage leaves
Serves 2 (for two eggs each)
Have you ever tried and failed in making a satisfactory poached egg? Perfect poached eggs are truthfully an hors d’oeuvre and one of my favourite ways to have a healthy breakfast or snack. But it took me quite a few shots to perfect them. Here, with the help of a savoy cabbage steamed leaf you can make perfect poached eggs in your oven, to add some of the wondeerful nutrients savoy cabbage has to offer for our gut lining integrity, liver health and gut immunity! Can I call it a superfood? Yes, to me it is! And to help even further, it is a super-easy recipe.
4 steamed leaves of savoy cabbage
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Your choice of grated cheese (optional)
Preheat your oven at 180C. Use a cucpcake tin (large cups), oil the cups with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Place in each of the cups one 3/4-steamed savoy cabbage leaf and press well into the tin cups. Break one egg into leach leaf, add salt, pepper, the rest of the olive oil shared between the 4 eggs. (You can add a little grated cheese over the egg if you wish so, but this is totally optional and it depends whether you like cheese and you’re not intolerant to dairy). Wrap the leaf over the egg and fold into the cup to hold it in place. Bake for 15 minutes.
Et voila’!! Poached eggs parfaits and ready to eat for your breakfast or lunch! Enjoy…. 🙂
