Food Finds | Saudi Arabia
Hey to the rest of the world that has their weekend still going! What are your plans?
Today for us started with a MASSIVE one of these:
Even better because I didn’t make it!
Gotta get every last drop!
If you want the recipe, check out my juice post over at High on Health here.
Then we hit the shops for some grocery stocking up for my Raw Food Basics Workshops that I’m conducting on Monday.
It’s always a lucky dip finding things here in Saudi Arabia, as sometimes you will find an awesome discovery, only to go back to the shops to find they either moved it or don’t stock it anymore.
Anyway at our local supermarket, Lulu, I found these:
Never seen this model before, but I reckon it would do the trip for making raw veggie pasta.
Mandolines (great for julienne slices and scalloping veggies for things like raw ravioli)
Yay for the hemp seeds! I found seeds! Go get them (in the USA/UK imports aisle) and hopefully they will keep ordering them if they see the turnover.
Hemp Protein Powder (in the organic/diet foods aisle)
ORGANIC – cereals, peanut butters, oats, dried fruits.
Then it was onto SACO the local hardware store and this is what I found:
A travel blender. Not sure of the model or how good it is, but looks similar to a magic bullet or my Tribest Personal Blender. Great for dressings, grinding seeds and nuts, puddings, and of course Green Smoothies at the office or whilst travelling. This model is a 220V and whilst most of Saudi operates on a 220V, our compound is mainly 110V (American standard) but with a transformer you could still make good use of this in your kitchen AND it’s small enough to pack on holiday with you like I wrote about on Vegan Backpacker here. I cannot speak on the performance of this particular model, but if you are local, it’s well worth the nosey.
