Apple and chia nachos

1 Mar

So it’s lent which means a bunch of us decide to feel good about ourselves and give something we love up, wether its because of religious, moral or even personal reasons to prove to ones self that they in fact do have that so-called “will-power”

Having gone through this every year, given up milk, chocolate and even facebook in previous years i wanted a real challenge this year.

Living in Cyprus the 50 days of lent are celebrated(?) by the conventional fast – all the restaurants (yes, including McDonalds) introduce fasting menus including veggie burgers, fish and people’s diets suddenly transform into greener, veggie and fibre dense diets.

So, i decided to go with the conventional fast this year, mainly because of the constrictions it places on the individual – no meat or any dairy products. (Let me add a sidenote – i virtually live on yogurt…)Lucky for all of you, the next couple of weeks you will have the honour of following me in my journey of basically going vegan (having decided to give up seafood also)

So the first veganized dish which I enjoyed today as a breakfast and pre-workout snack is a fruit nacho dish with homemade chia drizzles.

Chia sauce:
2 tablespoons chia
4 tablespoons water (judge until right consistency)
Cinnamon
Ginger
1 teaspoon honey (not vegan!!)
1 teaspoon tahini (or any nut-butter of choice)

Mix all the ingredients together and drizzle over some thinly chopped apples and carrots.
