The Feel-Good Element:

This delicious meal is rich in a variety of nutrients, it is filling and also a great one for take-away. Tehina is a great source of calcium, which is important for bone, heart, muscle and nerve health. The Tehina together with the chickpeas (hummus) and quinoa gives you plenty of protein. Protein is not only important to sustain and build muscle mass, but also for concentration, memory and a stable mood.
