Recently, I came across a new recipe which quickly became one of my favorite. I lived in the Middle East for 10 years but funny enough, I never tried to make Arabic food. Maybe because it was wildly available in Dubai. However, after I moved, I started to miss and crave some dishes. This is how I reached the point of going out of my comfort zone and experimenting with new cuisine. Luckily, to make a Tabbouleh Salad much easier than it looks. So now you can get this fascinating experience if you are ready to go out of your comfort zone.
Pluses of this Salad,
Super fast and simple to make
Takes just 15 min. with minimal mess
So delicious, full of flavors and aromas
Extremely healthy herbs
Very feeling and easily digestible
Great for showing off your cooking skills
It is not a usual meal you find in a restaurant so your guests will be pleasantly surprised by the vibrancy of flavors in this salad. Ok, let’s just get to it. Feel like I am writing longer than it took me to cook the meal.
Salt & Black pepper
Cook quinoa with a pinch of salt. Cut halloumi cheese, put in flour then in a frypan. Fry on medium heat with olive oil.
Cut mint, parsley and tomatoes. Squeeze juice from half of a lemon.
Mix quinoa with herbs and tomatoes. Add lemon juice and fresh grounded black pepper. Once ready to serve, put the cheese on top of the salad.

As many of you already know from my Instagram, I started using collagen supplements from awesome brand Gold Collagen. The brand sent me a 30-days program and at first, I didn’t even care much about it until I actually tried it.
So the package came with 3 heavy boxes of collagen mini bottles, the weight was more than 3 kg. Each box contains 10 bottles, so you can create your own collagen program for 10, 20, 30 days or even longer. Besides, I received amazing collagen masks for every week of the program. So beauty transformation within 30 days, guaranteed from the inside as well as outside. Also, this collagen infused with lots of other vitamins which contributes to your beauty and healthy spirit. While recording the video, I learned that Gold Collagen have programs for women 25+ Pure which I do, 40+ Forte and a special line for men. All products are made in U.K. and passed lots of labs tests for maximum effect.
I found very handy to take this little bottle every morning before my breakfast and so easy to drink on the go. No need to think about taking water or having a hard time swallowing it. So from my personal experience, it is the best collagen I have ever used. Once I finish my 30-Days program I will record another before and after review so subscribe to receive a notification and follow me on Instagram @yanallure. Last but not least, if you also tired Gold Collagen please share your experience, would love to know the results you got. Or about some other awesome products that you love.
After watching many videos about fruitarians and listening wonderfull book Diet 80/10/10 by Dr.Douglas N. Graham, I decided to make a little challenge for myself of trying it just for 60 Days. I am starting on 1st February 2018 and finishing around 1-7 April, I will see how I feel in case I will want to get back to regular diet earlier or finish it in the day when our Russian Orthodox fasting is over 7 April 2018. Many people say about miracles that happen to them when they become fruitarians from the health, business and other aspects of life so what the … I am also trying it. I believe in miracles so I don’t mind if they happen to me just by eating lovely fruits.
Besides, the hope that fruitarian diet will help me to forward my business ideas, lift my spirit to the next level and give some superpower, I also have two, dawn to earth, reasons for doing this 60 Days Challenge.
First, is to make myself more healthy, boost metabolism and get millions of amazing micronutrients/vitamisn/minerals into my body. The second reason, I want to lose 10 kg. I love my body and I am already quite fit wearing S/M size, but getting Victoria’s Secret supermodel body wouldn’t hurt. With my healthy diet right now my weight doesn’t move in any direction which is great especially if I already would have my target body weight and shape. Plus, I am the healthiest person I know; therefore, what I eat in general is quite good. However, I have a little addiction to popcorn, ice cream and a couple of others sweets. So we will see if this habit would change after 60 days and if I get my dream body.
There will be daily updates about my journey on my Instagram page @yanallure.
Here is the link to buy this wonderful book. It made a huge difference in my life and hope it will also add value to your wellbeing.
