Super munch! Energy food! We love this new super food we found at Gutta på Haugen. It is called Superknask and is produced by a company called Energimat. Two weeks ago, Andrea learned that she has celiac disease. Which means she can't eat gluten anymore. At all. That is pretty heavy news for someone who loves pastry, pasta and pizza as much as she does.
However, once the shock and frustration had settled, we decided that it would not break us. In fact, if anyone can handle such a disease it should be us. We make everything we eat from scratch anyway, and can control all ingredients. That being said, it is still nice to be able to purchase some basic products in the store. Enter Superknask, with two types of crispbreads and one type of cereal. This morning we made a simple breakfast with Superknask crispbreads, good ham and cheeses and various toppings. Here are some pictures for inspiration. In the future we will use Superknask products to make more exciting recipes too.
The story of Energimat is quite interesting. It is produced at Finnøy in Ryfylke, west in Norway, close to where Anders's great grand parents are from. The founder, Mette Lund Larsen, and her family were all diagnosed with a variety of food intolerances many years ago. Her idea was to make the life easier for anyone living with food intolerances and allergies, by producing high quality products without allergens. All the products are without gluten, wheat starch, yeast, egg, milk, nuts, soy or other additives. The sweetness comes from honey or agave syrup. The taste is unmatched!
In case you're wondering: No we won't make this into an allergy food blog. We have done paleo recipes before, and we will do that and probably some gluten free recipes in the future as well. We might give you the gluten free option for some dishes. Largely, the blog will remain the same, though. Hopefully a source of inspiration on where to eat the best meals, and how to make your home cooking more exciting.
