Healthy Egyptian and Mediterranean cuisine
Egyptian and Mediterranean cuisine is recommended and is now widely recognized as the “gold standard” eating pattern that promotes lifelong good health. The Egyptian and Mediterranean diet includes fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.
Protein from legumes – such as Fava beans and Garbonzo beans – can help regulate metabolism and promote growth and development of the body, especially the brain and kidneys. Legumes are not only high in protein, they are also rich sources of potassium. Our falafel is made from Fava beans, a hearty, ancient legume which grows on most continents though has not been well known in North America.
Egyptian and Mediterranean cuisine also features olive oil as the primary source of fat. Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat which can help reduce cholesterol levels when used instead of saturated or trans fats. Olive oil contains protective plant compounds which provide antioxidant effects. Fava Pot invites you to meet our ingredients, which includes the olive oil we use from Lebanon.
