Palestinian Lentils with Rice

This dish is one of my family's favorite Middle Eastern recipes. It is a traditional Arabic dish, typical for the lands of Palestine, Lebanon and Syria. In fact, I am a huge fan of the Arab kitchen, since it is one of the healthiest cuisines in the world! This dish, a combination of lentils, rice and some amazing seasonings, is very flavorful, and really nutritious. You can actually adapt it to your local region just by changing the seasoning (for instance, in Bulgaria, I use mostly savory and mint).

The Most Delicious Potato Salad

Healthy Banana Bread

One of the things I love is transforming traditional cakes into healthier versions. Not only I feel less guilty eating them, but they’re also more delicious! For instance, this banana cake has become one of my family’s favorite sweet treats. On top of that, it is so super easy to cook.
