MISHU contemporary baking is a resource to help you eat good and flavourful food that fits your diet. Started from a personal need, MISHU has now evolved into a webshop that reaches out and serves other like-minded individuals.
‘I just want to have a bread, a cake, a chocolate and all that yummy stuff that everybody else eats!’ I cried out to a friend one day, frustrated with my cravings.
At that time, I had already understood the connection between healthy alternative eating and your body energy flow, and I was not going to break this up. I was feeling just too good...finally! Full of energy, not bloated, and even my skin psoriasis had calmed down. I had reduced the intake of carbohydrates considerably, I had taken out all the grains in my diet, no more sugars either, and increased all the healthy fats and fibers. This new fuel I was feeding my body with, this new lifestyle was certainly having a positive impact to my body and mind.
However, thinking that this new lifestyle would mean having to miss out on specific moments such as a simple toasted bread with butter - on a sunday family breakfast - , or an indulging brownie to satiate a little crave - , or that feeling you get when you dip a bread in your homemade soup; that was a scary feeling. What if I could have all of that? Made only with the good stuff, but still with that incredible traditional taste. I started to wonder...
After lots of reading, researching, learning and some more reading, researching and learning. Then, hours and hours of tryouts in the kitchen, a new world opened up for me: a world of wholesome ingredients with amazing qualities, that make you feel good, energized and satisfied. Ingredients that have value, nutrition, that make a difference to your body and mind. From curiosity and need, a new hobby was created and now I bake wholesome products so that nobody else has to miss those specific moments in their daily life. MISHU was born.
MISHU means to me a world of endless possibilities, the understanding of personal journeys and a way to express my creativity in a wholesome way. MISHU is more than just baking; it's being free of any boundaries. Anything is possible.
