When you think about the words 'healthy' and 'cakes', the two don’t usually go together - however, with Kake Kwerk, it's different!
Healthier options can provide the vitamins and minerals you need for optimal health, helping to reduce inflammation, supplying antioxidants, nutrients and healthy fats.
The Big King in our kitchen is sea moss, and it's king because its so mineral-rich. It's a seaweed found in the seas of the Caribbean. The body is made up of 102 minerals and seamoss has a whopping 92 of those minerals. It feeds the blood, bones, skin, nerves, cells and adds collagen.... you name it, it plays a role in healthy body functioning.
We use ancient flours like spelt, Kamut and rye which provides fibre, boosting digestive function, metabolic health, and the feelings of fullness. As the flours used are whole grains they are full of antioxidants, compounds that help fight unstable free radicals which can damage your body's cells.
Now, can we talk about healthy fats? Pumpkin seed oil, hemp oil and avocado oil are great monounsaturated fats that help promote heart health. Coconut oil is also great because it contains medium-chain triglycerides, which can encourage energy efficiency increasing fat burning.
Salt is also another big health topic making, Himalayan pink salt our salt of choice. Not only is it a natural mineral but its a wonder for the body, creating an electrolyte balance increasing hydration.
It also works on a cellular level to regulate water content both inside and outside of our cells, it supports our pH Balance (alkaline/acidity) and helps to reduce acid reflux, prevents muscle cramping, assists in metabolism functioning, strengthens bones and can even lower blood pressure.
/WELL BEING & PEACE OF MIND
Tasty treats combined with nutrition can promote positive mental health, impacting self-esteem, confidence and overall well being!
When we make nutritious combinations like this, it takes the focus off dieting making eating healthier a more sustainable and enjoyable experience.
Did you also know eating healthier also helps the environment?! The world’s population is growing and so is the demand for food. Producing food for all these people has its impact on the environment, destruction of rainforests for agricultural land/livestock farming, increased fuel needs, pesticide use, greenhouse gases and landfills.
