Jikos around the World!! 🌍
An all time classic.... thanks to @olpejetabeef for the best #grassfed steaks in the world and to the wonderful #Limuru farmers for such good potatoes to bake!
Many thanks to the amazing #RhinoArk for supporting these womens groups around the #MauForest to get improved jikos and improved charcoal making kilns so they dont have to cut down trees to cook with anymore.
Also included was a packet of tree #seedballs from @seedballskenya
So the communities can start growing woodlots nearer to where they live so as to reduce all the time and labor it takes to collect wood in the future.
Cooking in the rain! Got everything into the jiko just as it started and everything was ready just as it stopped...happy times!
A beautiful morning to be a jiko at #TheStables at #OlPejeta
Chocolate chip banana bread muffins - always very delicious and somehow feel so nutritious :P
Based on this recipe https://nadialim.com/recipe/no-sugar-banana-bread/ with the chocolate upgrade.
We are very happy to have been invited to present our work on "throwing trees" with our forestry programme @seedballskenya to the Sustainable Inclusive Buisness Centre's Private Sector conference on the #circulareconomy.
Many thanks to them for buying a big bag of #seedballs to hand out as part of their leaving gifts to all the delegates as well 🌱🌱

What an amazing project that we are very glad one of our energy saving charcoal ovens was able to take part in :) ''The Zima Pizza venture was piloted in the town of Nyeri, Kenya to pilot this implementation process. This venture introduced a westernized food option into a local restaurant, and the lessons learned from this venture can inform the introduction of healthier street foods. This article outlines the basis for designing healthier meals for a simple street food business, the challenges that arose in the implementation process, and the lessons learned from this social venture.
2.2. Zima Pizza (http://zimapizza.weebly.com)
2.2.2. Recipe development
In this case study, a vegetable pizza recipe was developed. The pizza base was derived from a local staple food called chapatti. Chapatti is traditionally a thick tortilla-like bread product eaten on the side of a meal. It is cooked using oil, wheat flour, and water. The pizza dough incorporates wheat and soy flour into the chapatti recipe to provide enough fiber and increase the protein content. Amaranth flour was mixed into the pizza dough to increase micro-nutrient content and appeal to the health food niche market. Further, instead of deep-frying the dough as
chapatti is traditionally made, the pizza base is pan-baked.
Three different pizza sauces were designed: tomato sauce, kale sauce, and bean paste, each made of locally available ingredients. The pizza sauces were designed to provide a richer diversity of nutrients. The amount of protein and carbohydrate contained in each serving of Zima Pizza meets daily recommended values, in contrast to current food options that are too low in protein. The nutrition comparison between Zima pizza and the current food options of ugali, chapatti, mandazi, and corn, beans, and potatoes, is presented in Table 1.
The pizzas were cooked fresh with a charcoal oven purchased
from a Nairobi-based company called CooksWell. Baking one pizza took 10 minutes..'' https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S187770581501053X
And off she goes!
#Repost from @provisionskenya where you can get own beeswax wraps today!... This Makers Monday we’d like to introduce marvelous Murugie. When she first saw us using our beeswax food wraps she was excited to see how reusable they are and wanted to learn how to make them. Carefully cut out from vintage khangas, coated with a special recipe mixing local pine resin and jojoba, then “cooked” in a @cookswelljikos oven. These wraps are as eco friendly as it gets, as well as 100% local: #madeinKenya #madebyKenyans #allKenyaningredients 😎
