Can you believe that ME, the MEAT crazy lover craving person has only eaten vegetables for the last past 5 days?!?! I know its not a lot but for me its a HUGE achievement! You guys may be wondering why? Well me and Asaf want a more healthy eating style so there's a new rule in the apt. (let's see how long it lasts muahahaha): Meatless Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Exception of the rule, when we go out to a restaurant we are allowed to order meat (chix, beef, and pork).
Soooooo, I've been trying out new recipes and this one turned out pretty good! It's easier for me to eat only vegetables here in Israel because they are so tasty, crispy and crunchy. Besides, Carmel Market is 2 steps away from my apt. I get fresh veggies everyday :) Also, israelis eat tons of vegetables so you get pretty fast used to it.
I know the pics are not that good but at 10pm, hungry from the gym I just took my phone and took a pic. Sorry!
