Baked Quinces

In Ancient Greece, the fruit was used to treat several stomach and skin infections. It was also one of the most popular offers to the gods, due to it’s peculiar parfume. Actually I think people would just taste that sh*t raw and then offer it to the gods – “Hmmm, such a good looking quince! It smells so good! Holy f*ckaroni, this tastes like sh*t! It feels like I just licked a board full of splinters and then cleaned my thong with a burlap bag! I think Demeter is having an offer tonight…”

Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the legume. Legumes are plants or fruits/seeds in the family fabaceae. Well-known members of this family are beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils, soybeans and peanuts (yes, peanuts are legumes, not nuts).
After meat, poultry and fish, legumes provide more protein per serving than other types of food. Besides, it is a very good source of dietary fiber and minerals and, like most plant-based foods, no cholesterol. Every cup of chickpeas, for example, contains 15 gr. of protein (29% DV), 4.7 mg of iron (26% DV), 80.4 mg of calcium (8% DV), 78.7 mg of magnesium (20% DV), 2.5 mg of zinc (17% DV), 12.5 g of fiber (50% DV) and the list goes on.

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.

Grandma’s Biscuits

Do you know that momment, when you’re grandma tastes your own interpretation of her cookies, with a totally different selection of ingredients, and, looking at you, she just says “it is very good” ? Of course you don’t. Last time you cooked something was frozen pizza at 05h30 and the one who tasted it was your flatmate who was even drunker than you. But I know, because it happened to me last year.

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.

Some sort of Milk Bread

First time I had a hot dog served in a hot dog bun was when I joined 5th grade. There, in my school, they used to serve timg00006142he hot dog with that american style bun that looks like milk bread. I clearly remember the first time I tried it – it was disgusting. Sweet bread with a sausage, ketchup and mostard? WTF??? The few times I had a hot dog before that it was on a baguete or in a papo-seco (a typical portuguese bun).
