Yesterday, my big sister, Kaman baked an apple cake.

I really love the cake.

The cake was so moist and so tasty.

That was Kaman’s third cake, her first cake was a sponge cake and her second cake was a pound cake.

The apple cake recipe was from Fabio Viviani and Fabio named the cake, Fabio’s Apple Cake.

My mother says that this cake is very special because it uses olive oil instead of butter and lots of sweet red apples.

I guess Fabio uses olive oil because Fabio came to America from Italy and there are lots of olive trees in the Mediterranean countries.

Anyway the apple cake was very, very tasty and it is surely a healthy cake because olive oil is good for our health.

I enjoyed the cake more than I enjoyed any other cakes.

Tasty And Nutritious Ful Medames


Ful medamas-this is one of my favourite dinner

I love to eat ful medames or fūl Müdemmis (فول مدمّس).

Ful medames is a very tasty and healthy dish made out of beans.

This dish is actually from Egypt but it is popular in Sudan and Saudi Arabia too.

It is made from fava beans.

We eat ful medames with onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive slices, tahini, lime, olive oil and Arabian flat bread and falafel.

How to cook ful medames:

  1. Cook the fava beans with olive oil and garlic.

  2. When the beans are cooked, mash the beans.

  3. Then, serve the ful.

  4. Add some olive oil before eating our ful.

I love to add a lot of olive oil so my ful will be tastier.

I also like to eat falafel (فلافل‎) with ful, so my mother will cook falafel whenever she cooks ful.

Falafel is also a healthy food that originated from Egypt.

Falafel is made from chickpeas.

Ful reminds me of chili con carne because it is a bean dish too.

Good Fats and Bad Fats

1

My mother taught me about good fats and bad fats.

Good fats are Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats.

Bad fats are saturated fats.

The really bad fat is trans fat.

Trans fat is processed fat made by human.

Fish, seeds, nuts and olive oil  have lots of good fats.

Some chips, some margarine, some cookies, some fast food, some cakes and some junk food have lots of bad fats.

Do not eat too much bad fats even if they are very tasty.

Eat good fats.

My mother taught me to read the food labels and to choose food that says ‘no trans fat’.

Anyway junk food are bad but very tasty 🙂
