Special Food for Special People

IMG_7418
Today I have something nice for you guys. But even more I have something nice for my Bridesmaids, as they are the ones that actually come and eat the food I have prepared.
I am getting married this summer and even if we don’t have the tradition with the Maids here in Switzerland, I believe it’s a lovely one. So for our special day this summer I’ve decided to have my friends of honor and best sisters being my Bridesmaids. And as they do so much for me through this time (just thinking about all my wedding bla bla they deal with), tonight I can give them back just a little bit, by cooking for them and celebrate our friendships.

It’s the perfect breakfast or lunch or just your little (big) treat for the day…
Seriously, if I could, I would swimm in it.

Why Banana:
They are high in potassium and magnesium. Saturate quickly and persistently.
Why Chia Seeds:
Chia contain 5x more Calcium then milk. Also it has lots of antioxidants and omg3
Why Almonds:
Much of vitamin E, beta-carotene, calcium, iron and B vitamins. Even the rare trace elements zinc, selenium and fluoride are found in almonds.
Why Cacao:
It is rich in protein and contains plenty of fiber. The gently stimulating effect, which many feel in cocoa, is based on its content of theobromine, theophylline, and (very little) caffeine. It contains magnesium and potassium as well as valuable antioxidants that protect our cells from free radicals and premature aging. It has a mood-lifting effect through serotonin and dopamine. Cocoa is also good for the heart and circulation, as the flavonols (phytochemicals) make the blood vessels more elastic and can lower the blood pressure.
Why Vanilla:
The scent of vanilla can relieve stress, restlessness, anxiety, depression, insomnia and feelings of hunger. Reason is that vanilla stimulates the production of the happiness hormone serotonin in the brain.
It is effective for stomach upsets, sickness during pregnancy and cough

Enjoy! Emily
