What do we have for dinner today?
At Cynara we care about you and offer you some ideal recipes for dinner. They must be not very forceful and it is advisable to carry them out at least two hours before bedtime, to avoid bad digestion.
Eat healthy and fair. It is not a matter of filling yourself up to bursting or staying hungry and avoid eating anything. Choose homemade dishes instead of precooked foods that are high in bad cholesterol, hydrogenated fats that accumulate in areas of the body that are difficult to eliminate and usually contain added sugars and artificial colors, which are not good for the body.
