I love discovering new things and of course I love sharing them. I am very proud of my island, Cyprus, and I am happy seeing new beginnings. Lately I came across to what I believe is a very unique website absolutely related to my interests in living a good and healthy life and I really felt like sharing it with you!
www.Preferablypure.com is created by Cypriots and aims to look and find all the cool and new spots in Cyprus. They are discovering new products that can make our life prettier, organic goods and foods and new product recommendations like the new brand BION with a selection of organic herbs and teas, to hair products and unique recipes.
What caught my attention in the first place were the amazingly healthy and super-duper easy recipes. I am a very active person and love good food but I lack imagination…. so listen to this, Preferably Pure offers the CLEAN COOKING CLUB each month, they collaborate with Chef Fivos Kontomeniotis, bringing a new line up of cooking classes to the neighbourhood, especially for clean eaters, vegetarians and vegans!
If you are in the mood for a culinary experience with a group of friends who share your interest in cooking and leading a healthier lifestyle, Chef Fivos Kontemeniotis invites you into his own kitchen, where you can learn about plant based and whole grain cuisine from around the world and close to home, while participating in a 3 hour workshop.
Would love to do that!!!!
I am currently in Vienna so I will try one of the many new recipes for now.
I am hooked on the Date Butter Spread yuuummm…
Dates not only taste really good but they are super healthy and a great alternative to that ‘something sweet’ feeling. Dates do have calories but are also high in several important minerals including potassium, manganese, magnesium and copper. They also provide significant amounts of calcium, iron, vitamin K and B vitamins, including vitamin B-6 and folate. So It is definitely a better option instead of any sugary dessert.
Date Butter Spread
If you are looking for a healthier option when it comes to sweet spreads, this date butter can be used instead of supermarket shelved marmalades or jams. The kids are sure to love it.
1 cup dates – soaked for 10 mins
1 fresh orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
orange or lemon rind
Blend all together and put on toast or bread
It is definetely worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!
As for the eating out recommendations apart from Get Fresh which is my ultimate favourite in Nicosia I would love to try the Cookhouse in Limassol soon. Looks very interesting!!!!
Thank you Preferably Pure and keep up the great work!!!!!
Have a Preferably Pure and Tasty TDAY!!! :)
