My sister Lenia is my guide to vegeterianism. Since I am a new vegeterian I follow her advice so that I don’t have any health problems. Giving up on meat and not having a balanced diet is not a smart thing to do. I have changed my eating habits in many ways. For example whenever I cook legumes I try to pair them with cereals so that I get the protein I need. Although I hated lentils, a couple of years ago I began to like them and nowadays this love has turned into passion! Today I paired them with spicy rice balls and yummy pickled aubergines from Yoleni’s. Except for the top quality of the products you can find in this online delicatessen I  love the fact that they are delivered very quickly and packed  very attentively, a token of respect towards the client. You should try this simple yet tasteful dish. It is a great way to enjoy legumes!

Have a lovely day, my dear friends!
