Healthy feasting in Israel
Middle-Eastern cuisine is filled with healthy options. In Israel, a country that prides itself on healthy culinary choices, lunch is often comprised of Israeli salad—a delightfully simple combination of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Hummus and whole wheat crackers provide lots of healthy carbs and vegetarian protein. Shakshuka, a spicy egg dish prepared with tomato pepper sauce, is another yummy lunch go-to.
