If you’ve ever been to a large metropolitan city and eaten at one of the ethnic street carts or food trucks; you’ve probably enjoyed shawarma. Yes, it was delicious…but did you really know what you were eating? The Arabic word shawarma means “turning” and actually refers to the preparation of the meat, rather than the finished product.
The world continues to crave hummus – a delicious and healthy food made by pureeing cooked garbanzo beans (chickpeas) with tahini paste, oil, garlic, lemon juice and traditional spices.
I must admit that before joining Kronos Foods a little more than three years ago, my experiences with falafel were very limited. Since then, I’ve been exposed to many different versions and brands of falafel. I have eaten at a handful of Chicago ethnic restaurants that were making their own fresh falafel, and those experiences were pleasing.
During the holiday season, it is always fun to take traditional recipes and put a “spin” on them by incorporating new and interesting ingredients.

Whether you use it to dip, spread or to jazz up your recipes, I will show you a few ways to incorporate hummus into your current menu options for an added flair.
Yes, it is true that condiments often make a meal, but they are also the source for a number of hidden calories that can bring a would-be healthy meal option into the caloric “danger zone”. Mayo and sour cream are two common “hidden calorie” offenders. Sure, they add flavor, but they also bring along unnecessary calories and cholesterol. Today, I will introduce you to Kronos Fat Free Greek Yogurt – a perfect substitute that will enhance some of your menu items by keeping the calories down, without sacrificing flavor or texture.
