We at Coppa della Maga are constantly on the lookout for new ways to help us stay fit and healthy. And whenever we come across something worthy like the following piece of advice, we are eager to share it with you.
Each of us has our personal health and fitness goals. And what we find often most difficult is to stick to the promises we made to ourselves in the long term, in order to reach these goals. Being busy, sad or exhausted from work, often puts our will at challenge and we slip back to the old unwanted behavior. Experts advise us
Needles to convince anyone about the feel good benefits of chocolate, the following health enhancing facts might make you reconsider you diet.
Cocoa is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, copper and manganese. The antioxidants and flavonoids in the cocoa bean have a positive effect on our heart, blood pressure and skin. Flavonoids are said to lower our insulin and cholesterol levels and improve our cognitive function. Some research even connects it to an increase in the metabolism. A study at the University of California found that people who ate chocolate regularly
De cluttering your home could be the catalyst to getting your life on track. It might sound a little farfetched, but it really can have a profound effect on your mental clarity and day to day life. By organizing the home and getting rid of things you no longer need, you may begin to think and see things with a clearer mind.
We looked to Marie Kondo for some much needed advice. For those who don’t know Kondo is renowned for her expertise in helping people transform their homes into spaces of serenity and calm. Sounds a dream, but unfortunately we aren’t able to magically fly her overseas to our homes. Being left to de clutter alone can be a pretty large and daunting prospect. So we’re going to break down a few of her ingenious methods here just to give you a little idea of how to declutter Kondo style:

Followers of Coppa della Maga would know that our brand not only stands for healthy food and indulgence, but also for the importance of a well-balanced, mind- and soul- fulfilling lifestyle in order to care for our mental health. Besides from good nutrition, our overall wellbeing and happiness is dependent on other factors such as our work-life balance, physical activity, how mindful we are and who we surround ourselves with. Today 1 in 4 people suffer from a mental health disorder. Unlike stress that typically has a specific trigger, anxiety may appear out of the blue, leaving the sufferer in a constant state of apprehension and fear. Anxiety can affect people physically, psychologically and behaviourally.
Anxiety attacks can often occur at night. During a normal busy day, running from one meeting to the next and juggling multiple tasks, the brain is simply too busy to worry and feel anxious. At night, however, when there is a lack of distraction, we are forced to confront our thoughts. What makes things harder is people often become their own worst enemy and predict an anxiety attack before it’s begun, this can then lead to a very vicious cycle. That’s why it’s extremely important to learn different strategies which aim to keep anxiety under control.The good news is that there is a biological explanation behind anxiety and it is something people can overcome.
Every autumn we suggest a recipe for one of our favourite and most unusual flavour combinations: pumpkin soup with Coppa della Maga ice cream. Pumpkin soup is classically served with a spoonful of cream, but since our ice cream is not too sweet, it’s the perfect accompaniment to savoury dishes e.g. curries and stews. Try this one:
We are delighted to share the news about the latest recognition we have received: this year at ANUGA, the largest international food show in the world, our Vegan Matcha Green Tea ice cream was selected by a jury of food experts as being one of the industry’s top innovations.

Interestingly, the state of our gut does not only affect our physical health but can also impact our mental health too.
