New to healthy eating?
You are probably like I was in the beginning of my healthy eating journey.
I would download and print off recipes that sounded great but there would be items I had no idea what they were much less able to pronounce.
Then trying to locate them was like pulling teeth.
Well, I’m going to list them for you on the next few post, and try to explain what they are, where to find them, how to make at home if it’s possible and even how to pronounce them as well!!!!
Here we go with #1
1. Tahini – a condiment made from toasted ground hulled sesame seeds. It’s served as a dip on its own or as a major component of hummus, baba ghanoush, and halva. Tahini is used in the cuisines of the eastern Mediterranean region, from the Balkans, Caucasus and Middle East to Northern Africa. It is also widely used in Chinese and South East Asian cuisine, notably Vietnamese cuisine.
It has more protein that milk!!!! Can you believe it? It’s high in vitamin B which is great for your brain and energy!!! It’s also high in vitamin E, iron, magnesium, and calcium.
Here is link to one of my favorite food bloggers on how to make it at home.She also has a great recipe with Tahini as one of the ingredients over at the Fork over Knives website for “No-Tuna” Salad Sandwich.
