Delicious Lent with honey and tahini

Clean Monday is the beginning of a 40-day Lent until Easter. FoodsCross proposes a delightful combination to all those who are determined to fast and enjoy the whole process: mix the premium thyme honey with a spoonfull of, preferably unhulled, tahini -a delicious paste made of ground sesame seeds. Enjoy it with your favorite nuts or spread it on a crusty slice of lagana.

The delicious taste is matched by an uncomparable nutritional value, thanks to tahini’s benefits:

  • It’s rich in minerals such as phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium, potassium and iron.
  • It’s a good source of Methionine, which aids in liver detoxification.
  • It’s one of the best sources of calcium out there.
  • It’s high in vitamin E and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15.
  • Helps to promote healthy cell growth.
  • Prevents anemia.
  • Helps to maintain healthy skin and muscle tone.
  • It has 20% complete protein, making it a higher protein source than most nuts.
  • It’s easy for your body to digest because of its high alkaline mineral content, which is great for assisting in weight loss.
  • It is high in unsaturated fat (good fat!)

Happy Lent!
