If you have canned chickpeas like I had, drain it until you have prepared the other ingredients. If you have it raw, boil it in time and let it cool and drain. Peel the garlic and avocado and remove the seeds. Put in a bowl, chickpeas, avocado, sliced ​​garlic, lemon juice and tahini. Mix well, add a little warm water, if necessary, season with salt. Add the pumpkin and chia seeds and mix again. Fill the tart shells with the resulting composition and decorate with hot pepper strips. Good appetite!


Sesame paste is made very quickly and is much better made at home. We only need sesame, sunflower oil or sesame and sesame oil. Heat the sesame seeds in a hot pan for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. After it has cooled, blend the sesame with salt and oil. Store well in the refrigerator for 2 months.


The hot pepper strip used as a decoration completes the taste of the tarts


If there is humus left, put it in a bowl, sprinkle it with olive oil and lemon juice and serve with toast.


& # 8230 It happens to me in the kitchen. After trying a lot of options, which satisfied me more or less (Top 3 would be: 3. Al Amir from Crangasi, 2. Fadel (who doesn't just make sweets), 1. Manuc's Inn), and where hummus does not always have the same taste, I decided to make hummus at home, because it is more handy, healthier and cheaper. I tried a few, but it never came out like the one to buy, neither in texture (it's not so creamy) nor in taste, so I gave up the idea that I would ever get something so creamy, but I started to do various combinations, and one day I came across the winner.

About chickpeas it is good to know that:

& # 8211 is high in fiber, which helps with healthy digestion and balances blood sugar levels

& # 8211 is an important source of protein

& # 8211 contains Magnesium, Iron and antioxidant phytonutrients

& # 8211 can be eaten and germinated in salads (I soak it for 12 hours, drain it, and then leave it to germinate for 24 hours, rinsing it every time I go through the kitchen, and I keep it in the fridge 2 -Three days).

The ingredients I use are the classic ones for hummus:

200 grams of dried chickpeas with large beans, from Mega Image (I noticed that it boils faster than other variants)

3 tablespoons tahini (pressed sesame paste)

5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

But the secret is a mix of spices, surprise, for shaorma, which I bought at one point from an Arab store, in the desire to prepare my friend a healthier version of shaorma from Genin. I don't know exactly what it contains, but because it will be finished soon, I will go to the Arabs again, hoping to find this mix for sale, and then I will be able to tell you what spices it is prepared from.

The alchemy is simple: I leave the chickpeas in cold water overnight, and in the morning I rinse it, and boil it for half an hour together with a teaspoon of baking soda, so that the berries soften faster. After draining the water, I clean each chickpea skin, as I saw at one point in Codruta, on Facebook, I pass it well with the blender, and I add the above ingredients, and a little of the spice mix arabesti. It takes me 50 minutes to cook, and I think it tastes great, even if it's not super creamy, like the ones from various restaurants. Plus I know exactly what I put in it.

If we are to draw the line, the price would be something like this: 3 lei chickpeas (I use chickpeas with big beans from Mega Image), 2 lei tahini (from Darinne, 500 g box, 20 ron), 1 lei lemon, 2 lei olive oil, approx. 1 leu salt, pepper and garlic & # 8211 TOTAL: 9 lei for about half a kilogram of humus. I did not find a good hummus to buy with less than 10 lei / 500 g.

In conclusion, Here are the 3 secrets for a cheap, delicious and healthy hummus:

& # 8211 chickpeas with big grain, as it boils faster and is easy to clean

& # 8211 Skin cleansing for extra creaminess

& # 8211 various Arabic spices for an authentic taste


The seventh day is Saturday, and the first day is Sunday.

It is universally recognized today. Take a look at the calendars you want, including the electronic calendars on your mobile phones: you'll find that the week starts… Ещё with the first day - Sunday - and ends with the seventh day - Saturday. And the Calendars issued by the Patriarchate of the Romanian Orthodox Church, starting with 2011 - I think, confirm this order. Even the Orthodox Bible.
Example: The Holy Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 28, 1. After the Sabbath, when it was dawn on the first day of the week (Sunday), Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb, the Holy Gospel of Mark , Chapter 16, 2. And early in the morning, on the first day of the week (Sunday), when the sun was rising, they came to the tomb.).

Fast diet

Even if Nutritionists always recommend a slow weight loss process, which is more likely to become permanent than losing weight overnight, the same nutritionists claim that you can lose two to three kilograms immediately, without upsetting your metabolism or put them back in the next few days.

Starvation is not a long-term solution, but a clever feeding plan for three to four days can lower your waistline by a measure and paradoxically give you more energy.

The key is in a increased intake of nutrients, packed in fewer calories. And you can do this by consuming super foods (vegetables and fruits that we wrote about in our previous issues), avoiding the synthetic additives that load your elimination system and eating as often as possible, to increase metabolic rate and avoid the feeling of hunger.

Fast diets are not only a solution for the holidays, but also one that you can use from time to time, once every two or three months, to detoxify and readjust your figure.

3 kg in 4 days
This diet should stimulate your elimination of toxins, giving your liver, kidneys and digestive system a few days to relax. Choose organic fruits and vegetables, without pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Do not leave between meals for more than three and a half hours.
