Something about Healthy Eating + Sabich recipe

Hi, everyone! I am finally back to blogging after a long silence. I’m not only back with a new recipe but also with a new fun experiment. The thing is that I’ve decided to try 21-day detox program that I’ve found on the internet. As a part of this cleansing diet I even turned into a vegan for a week, furthermore I survived it=). Maybe, for some of you this is not a big deal, but for such devoted meat lover as I am, not to eat any animal protein is a very serious decision. You would probably ask me, why I decided to change my diet so dramatically. The answer is – I did it just because of my natural curiosity; this quality is probably the most powerful force that drives me forward and always makes me try something new. Moreover, I read a lot of different articles and watched many movies about all the benefits of vegan and detox diets, so, I’ve decided to try if it works for me. Oh, I also decided to go nuts and not drink any alcohol and coffee, as well as not to eat anything that contains refined sugar, except for an extra dark chocolate, because I would not survive otherwise =) But, food is only one of the pieces of my detox puzzle. I also drink cleansing juices and teas, exercise five times a week and treated my body with the favorite Citrus Scrub. As a result, after one week of detox and one more week of the vegan diet, I’ve lost 3 pounds, and I’m feeling very well, strong and healthy. But we’ll see what my physician tells me tomorrow. I still have one more week of diet ahead of me, so if you’re curious about my little experiment, you can follow me on Instagram and Facebook, just to make sure I’m not cheating =)

But enough about my detox, it’s time for a new recipe! Regarding my new healthy lifestyle, I want to post this Mediterranean Sabich today, which is a pita bread open faced sandwich with a mix of fresh and grilled veggies, hard boiled eggs, and tahini sauce. I’ve found that Sabich is a very healthy and tasty alternative to American sandwiches and can be a real treat for those who are on a diet. P.S. This Sabich contains eggs only because I photographed it long before my vegan days =)
