what can Taganrog residents eat and what not

Great Lent is the path that leads us to the feast of Easter, the Bright Resurrection of Christ. To follow this path, the Fathers of the Church recommend imposing certain restrictions, including in nutrition. Lent in 2022 will last from March 7 to April 23, the table these days will be limited to certain products.

Christians enter Great Lent for the purpose of spiritual cleansing, so it is wrong to perceive fasting as a diet. However, there are general rules for eating during Lent.

These days it is not recommended to eat food of animal origin: meat, eggs, dairy products. On the feasts of Palm Sunday and the Annunciation of the Most Holy Theotokos, fish is allowed. Other seafood is also not included in the list of forbidden.

And what about shawarma? After all, delicious and beloved shawarma is a great option for a quick snack at work, school or just at home. Many people believe that meat is an indispensable ingredient, without which there can be no shawarma.

This is far from the case, there are recipes for a vegetarian vegetable, dietary shawarma, which is no less healthy and nutritious than the classic shawarma with meat stuffing, which is widely known to us.

So, Victoria Kayumova went to “Your Shawarma”, where the chef gladly provided her with his kitchen and told her about the secrets of making such shawarma.

If you want to repeat and try, write down the recipe.
