It is advisable to soak the mushrooms in water before cooking.

Chickpeas can be cooked more: today you can add some of them to vegetables, and tomorrow — to a salad or combine with some cereals, you will get a much more healthy and nutritious dish. Garlic is disassembled into cloves — peeled, it can burn while the rest of the vegetables are baked.

(2) – “Healthy diets, arising either by tradition or design, share many common features and generally align with the WHO Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases. In comparison with a Western diet, these healthier alternatives are higher in plant-based foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts and lower in animal-based foods, particularly fatty and processed meats. Evidence from epidemiologic studies and clinical trials indicates that these types of dietary patterns reduce risks of NCDs ranging from cardiovascular disease to cancer. Further endeavors are needed to integrate these healthy dietary and lifestyle choices into daily living in communities throughout the world and to make healthy eating accessible, achievable, and sustainable.”
