A Visit to the Athens Central Market
There’s no mistaking the smell of olives: we’re definitely in Greece. In a few minutes we’ll be at the heart of the Athens Central Market, on Athinas Street. You can just let your senses lead you and you’ll know where to go. The senses of smell and sight, for sure, but also hearing. The place is lively and vendors try to grab your attention any way they can.

Danone Danacol Breaded Tofu Fingers
Introducing tofu into your cooking is a great way to get your daily portions of meat and alternatives.

Today, Greeks still eat lots of honey. It’s a staple on the kitchen table, not far from the jar of yogurt.

Beekeeper Nikos Reppas doesn’t doubt it one second. “The honey is best when the bees forage on rosemary,” he declares. In this field in the Peloponnesian region of Greece, 25,000 bees live in 150 hives. They gather nectar...

Food
Planning breakfast is not always an easy task. We need to determine what our tastes and food preferences are, then find out what constitutes a healthy diet, take time to go to the supermarket to buy all the ingredients we need, and finally take the time to prepare these delicious meals. Really, it’s not something that can generally be done in a flash! But planning meals also ensures having nutritious food on hand and allows our body to have good sources of energy throughout the day. By planning your meals each week, you’ll also take more pleasure in cooking and savouring your meals, because they won’t be last-minute, painful tasks....
