Morning Morning 😚
Tonight I slept as long as I could, with no annoying alarm clock to wack me, and I have to say that, that felt amazing! For the last 3 weeks, my alarm clock has went of at 6:30 or 7:00 A.M, and I am usually not that good at getting to bed early, so it is usually only 6 hours of sleep. Which is okay – Actually it is proven that adults don’t need more, but for me it is more about the stress, that you have to get up, because you have things to do. So just once a week or something, it is amazing to just forgot about the alarm clock and let the body rest. It is not like I am able to sleep 12 hours or something as I could when I was in my early teen years, so I don’t have to worry about that that the clock is going to say something super insane when I wake 😬
Well, the Greek place I wanted to tell you about, that made me remember how much I love Greek food is called The Real Greek, and is placed in lovely Soho.
Greece is one of the Countries in Europe me and my family have visited most, when I was growing up. I love the greek culture, their beautiful architecture and most of all the food. Especially their massive use of olive oil, which is just one on the best things on earth for me!
A lot of people in western countries is terrified of eating too much fat, especially through oil. But it is actually proven to help with so many health issues, and furthermore it is improving skin and hair barriers and moisture levels A LOT. It is even said that a lot of the health issues we are dealing with in the West, mostly regarding skin-problems and digestion, isn’t seen in Greece because of the large amount of oil that they eat everyday. Well, I am not too sure if that is accurate but I know that it is accurate that a lot of people, who are trying to eat super healthy, is avoiding oils, which is definitely not healthy. Just a nice olive oil in a salat, coconut oil in the smoothie, or seeds can be super healthy to add!
In The Real Greek, the food is all served in small platers and all the food comes on étage plates. So cute! The food was super delicious, and also very very veggie friendly. Especially the humus and spicy feta meze was to die for! But also the falafels! waaauw so good. I have actually come to avoid falafels, because when you are a vegetarian, you can kind of get to much of them, and a lot of them it so boring and tasteless and mass produced. But these ones made me remember how a real falafel should taste like – and you could for sure taste that they were freshly and home-made.
If you love greek food, this place is for sure worth trying! It could live up to standards I have from eating a lot of greek food – in greek, which is saying something.
The only bad thing was that the calories is stating beside each dish, which was a little bit annoying. But oh well, who is counting calories anyway.
