Tzatziki 6

Tzatziki

Tzatziki. A spectacular name for shredded cocumber with yogurt. It even sounds that you really know how to cook when you present such food – “Do you wanna come over for dinner? I’ll make my tzatziki, it will blow your mind!”. Yes. Except, that it’s just shredded cucumber with yogurt.
Man, tzatziki even sounds like some sort of legendary sword from the Ottoman Empire. Something like – “Bahadir, son of Behram, raising the mythical blade, Tzatziki, made all the caliphate tremble.”. Except, that it’s just shredded cucumber with yogurt.
Jokes apart, I actually like tzatziki, a lot. It goes along very well with many recipes and it is a great dip for bread.
Cucumber it’s kind of a boring ingredient for most people. And I must agree. I’m also not a big fan of cucumber in it’s purest form, but it is a very versatile ingredient. It is quite tasty in oriental stir-fries or pickled, for example. And, besides that, it is the star of our recipe, today. And it’s not everyday that you can call tzatziki to something.

Supercookies

What should you eat before training?
The logic answer should be – food. Yes, food. If you have bananas at home, why should you be eating that store bought energy bar? It is most likely loaded with highly processed products. It is true that energy bars and cookies, such asThe Complete Cookie are very tasty and can be very handy. I also like the flavor, but that’s not the point. It is just much healthier to eat bananas and peanut butter, for example. In very rare cases, eating processed food will be healthier than eating whole food.

Christmas Chickpea Cookies

I’ve always been a huge Christmas entusiast. I don’t know when it started and I can’t even remember caring that much about the presents I would get when I was a kid. But I do remember, since ever, being very excited about what I would eat. Since very young I’ve always loved gathering at the table, specially with all the family sitting together. Unfortunately ocasions like that are not as common as I would like it to be. Specially nowadays that I live far from home.

Nutella – Choco Hazelnut Spread

This recipe doesn’t taste like nutella. Even I can guarantee you that. It’s not as creamy or sweet. But it is quite tasty and MUCH healthier. Still not something I would recommend eating with a spoon, specially if you’re looking for losing some weight. But, compared with the original product, it is super healthy indeed. If you enjoy the taste of pure roasted hazelnuts, you will love this. Besides, homemade is always better right?

Simple Spicy Granola

You would give me a box of cereals and I would become a dangerous child. I think I would always eat almost half a box at once. Maybe that’s why I became a chubby kid. There were some cereals that were almost prohibited at home. Me and a box of Cocoa Krispies was a recipe for disaster. The thing is the f*ckin cereals would shrink and vanish in the hot milk. It would just lose all it’s crunbox-cereal-lucky-charmschiness in seconds. And of course I would add some more in the milk. It was impossible not eat more than half a box every time.

Nut Butters

Bread with butter. Who doesn’t like it? I used to love it. As I said over and over again, I’ve always been a kid of very humble tastes. A nice slice of rustic bread with a generous portion of butter paired with a bunch of grapes was certainly one of my favorite snacks. Moreover, as the story goes, that fella ran away from home with nothing but a slice of bread with butter and a bunch of grapes. I believe he made it through.
