Bread – a national treasure

Each culture and nationality of the world has its own recipe for making bread, because different ingredients are used for its preparation. In the friendly company of bread known to us, you can safely add such products under the name – Tortilas, cheesecake and many others.

The word “bread” comes from the Greek “klebanos” – this is the name of the pots in which they baked bread. The very first plant for baking bread is oak, because its acorns were ground into flour. Then this flour was bred with water and baked bread on hot stones.

We will begin to familiarize ourselves with bread products from the warm countries of our planet. For the preparation of bread, a tree of the same name was used, for the preparation of which its fruits were used. To do this, they were laid for several days in a pit with walls covered with banana leaves. The fruit was incised and, under the influence of sunlight, they turned into a homogeneous mass similar to dough. They made bread like this in Australia, and some African tribes still use this recipe. Continue reading

10 rules for a perfect salad

Many are sure that the salad is just the decoration of the main dish. In fact, it is itself a full-fledged dish, and not just a handful of leaves on a plate with steak or in a bowl with pasta. Leafy green vegetables are well known as functional alkaline products: they restore the acid-base balance in the body, which, due to our lifestyle, constantly strives to shift to the “acid” side, which causes inflammation. Salads also act as prebiotics in the intestines. Prebiotics are non-digestible, high-fiber foods that stimulate the growth of probiotic bacteria. This is very important because probiotics in the gut strengthen the immune system and optimize the absorption of nutrients from food. But the benefits of leafy vegetables are not limited to this (which I never tire of writing about).

In general, I urge you to eat as many salads as possible! Take them as a complete dish, and my application with recipes Live up! for iOS and Android will help you cook different salads every day, so it won’t be boring!
