London, Apr 23 (ANI): Inspired by Indians, Brit mom Abi Blake, makes tarts, smoothies and even lasagne by using a unique, natural and healthy ingredient-her own breast milk.he 30-year-old stay-at-home mum of one shares her creations with friends and even sells the food to strangers at food festivals.
The idea of cooking with breast milk first came to Abi when she spent some time in India, where women regularly use it in their cooking.
"I knew it was healthy for babies but had no idea that adults could benefit from it too. But after some research, I realised the potential gold mine that every woman has to offer. It's now my obsession and I use it in every recipe I can," the Sun quoted her as saying.
Abi uses a breast pump to express and collect excess milk after eight-month-old daughter Tily is full.
"I am the Nigella Lawson of breast milk cookery. Although the idea of eating something made out of someone else's breast milk may make some people's stomachs turn, it is full of vitamins that can never be found in cow's milk, she said.
"I have managed to convert all my family who now adore my breast milk recipes and they all agree it tastes better," she added.
Married to Jonathan, 37, a management consultant, Abi is happy that a recent study has claimed that breast milk can kill cancer cells.
"Many customers were intrigued and thought it was a novelty. But what most people don't know is that breast milk contains nutrients that can help the immune system and even treat cancer.
"It is such a precious ingredient and if people would only try it, they would discover all its wonderful benefits." (ANI)
