Chocolate Chia Pudding

If you know me well, you know I love chocolate!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This recipe from Rachel Mansfield contains my favorite combination of ingredients: bananas, chocolate and nut butter.

In fact, this is definitely…

Plus, when I have chocolate in the morning, it tends to satisfy my chocolate…

Breakfasts in Israel are my favorite because they are so filling and healthy. Israeli breakfasts are typically full of vegetables, fruits, baked goods, fresh cheeses, and proteins (eggs and fish). For a recent Israeli themed brunch I made the following: Homemade buckwheat bread Toasted pita Hummus (I bought hummus masabacha from my local kosher grocery…
