We are forever being bombarded by a plethora of conflicting food advice, which can, unsurprisingly leave us feeling a little perplexed about what to believe. Over the years we have all been faced with bold printed headlines demonising various food groups, one of which, quite often being sugar. So is sugar really all that bad for you?
Tonight, as a welcoming to summer, just before everyone heads off to the beach, we have chosen to celebrate in union once again, the beauty of art and good food.
This time, we are honored to partner up with Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art and the exceptional artist Rana Begum:
Each year in the month of June, the famous ‘Rose Festival’ takes place in the remarkable Rose Valley south of the Balkan Mountains in Bulgaria. This is home to a very rare and special type of rose that produces the finest rose oil in the world, used by top perfumery houses such as Chanel, and also used by us at Coppa dell Maga for our stunning Yogurt & Rose petal flavor.
Led by our constant pursuit of pleasure and perfection, we have enlisted the help of jewelry maker Atanas Konstantinov to create our limited edition art pieces out of pure silver. Our exquisite spoons – as much art as functional objects – have been designed to give you the perfect bite-sized scoop of ice cream:
If you have often felt bored and trying to distract yourself with food, or have experienced any of the following, you are most probably an emotional eater: in certain situations, some people tend to compensate their stress with food. If, during difficult situations you feel you need to eat that burger with fries, it may well be down to the stress hormone cortisol which elevates cravings for both fatty and salty foods. The act of binging provides a quick energy boost and a short-term satisfying, feel-good effect.
Many people use food as a coping mechanism to avoid negative emotions, whether that be – anxiety, sadness, irritation or simply boredom. In fact, boredom and hormonal imbalances are two of the most common triggers for emotional eating. We must, however, also consider how our behaviors surrounding food have been shaped during early childhood. For instance, if sweets were given to us as a reward or consolation as children, there is a high chance we may have developed an automatic association between food and comfort, prompting us to reach out for those sweet treats when feeling low and in need of a pick me up.
Launched in 1988 by Trevor Pickett – the quintessential English eccentric – the Pickett brand has grown over the years and remains a proud purveyor of luxury goods. As firm advocates of the British leather goods industry, they are one of the last remaining stores to ensure their products are made in England from start to finish by craftsmen, some of whom they have worked with for more than 23 years. The eye for detail and quality and a quintessentially English disposition towards eccentricity, enthusiasm and exuberance, which demarcates Pickett from other brands, is probably exactly the reason why the Duchess of Cambridge chose this Pickett Bhutan Cashmere Shawl for her recent outfit.
All natural, gluten free, sugar free, lactose free and on top of that very delicious! We know it sounds too good to be true, but that is exactly why the ice cream is called Coppa della Maga (meaning “The bowl of the magician” in Italian).
We are proud to present our first vegan product, after over a year of extensive research and testing. The dairy-free coconut and strawberry sorbet is made of coconut milk and strawberries, topped with roasted coconut chunks. Coconut oil is the best natural source for soothing and moisturizing the skin, as it contains lauric acid, which has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Coconut milk is popular for boosting the brain function and its fat burning potential. All of that makes this new vegan product extremely suitable for adding to smoothies and healthy recipes. With just 0.2g sugars per 100g – from natural sources – indulgence has never been more guilt-free! For a healthy vegan breakfast, try serving it melted as a mousse, mixed with muesli, added to fruit or as part of a super-food smoothie: www.coppadellamaga.co.uk/ice-cream/flavours/vegan-coconut-strawberry-sorbet/
All of us have done it: watching TV, while eating; working on the computer and talking on the phone; scrolling through Facebook during a conference. Multitasking has become an ingrained daily habit for most people, but does it really help us getting more done? Research shows it is quite the opposite: not only does the performance of simultaneous activities slow us down, but it also drains our energy as switching from one task to the other is actually time consuming for the brain and requires a lot more mental effort than focusing on just one thing at a time:
We all know from experience that it might be a difficult choice to make, but did you know that selecting the right scent is also an emotionally packed choice? Moreover it is a largely subconscious one. Since smell is directly connected to our innermost brain parts, it is a very primal sence, that provokes of our innermost thoughts and emotions. That is exactly what makes it so intriguing.
What can be said about you based on your choice of a smell? It can be more revealing than you can imagine! See why:
Mother’s day is coming! So is spring!
