Today my friends I would like to share with you something very interesting. Some of you may have heard of it and some of you may not. I, for certain have not. This "diet" or "life style" as I would call it, should be the way I will definitely try to follow for the rest of my life. This "life style" is what is known as the Paleolithic Diet.
Tahini is a paste made from Sesame seed. The oil you see floating on the top is the sesame oil which is an integral part of the tahini. This is exactly like peanut butter where sometimes the oil floats on the top (if it is not made in U.S.A.).
Tahini is very much used in the eastern part of the Mediterranean basin from Greece Eastwards, including Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, and Iraq. Tahini is used as a complement to shish kebabs, meat, chicken, fish, and salads and even alone as a dip in western countries by people who lived in the middle east.
Tahini is extremely good for the health and contains a number of vitamins, fiber, and other.
