Health Benefits of Lebanese Food You Didn’t Know About

What is Lebanese food?

Derived from the Mediterranean country of Lebanon, Lebanese food is a delicious gathering of vegetables, legumes, cereals, and nuts. Because of its wide assortment of fresh herbs and spices, Lebanese food is not only scrumptious but comes in diverse platters of mouthwatering combinations.

Health Benefits of Parsley: 
Many Lebanese dishes use parsley for the flavor it provides for the overall meal. Parsley also contains vitamin K as 574% of the daily recommended value. Benefits include bone strength, prevention of eye diseases (cataract, degeneration), Alzheimer’s and neural damage. Parsley is also useful to digest due to its iron and high fiber content. 

Health Benefits of Tahini:
For the Lebanese cuisine, thick sauces are often avoided and replaced with various herbs and seasonings.
Tahini is the most common traditional sauce for Lebanon. Because it was created through sesame seeds, tahini is rich in protein and Omega 6 fatty acids. 

Health Benefits of Olive Oil: 
Rather than cooking the meals with butter, cream with butterfat or highly processed products, olive oil is used in much of the platters and dishes. Loaded with unsaturated fatty acids and a large number of antioxidants, olive oil is known to lower cholesterol, prevent strokes, heart disease and many other illnesses.
