For many years, I’ve been dreading that time of the year when families come together to celebrate Easter the Egyptian way. I’d always prepared locking myself up in my room or leaving Cairo for the time being until people have devoured all their feseekh, renga, and bassal akhdar. The smell of rotten corpses exuding from the long departed fish that somehow, some humans find appetizing has forever baffled me. I never understood how some could easily exhale and inhale around the gruesome fragrance of feseekh.
This year however, some very brave woman by the name of Sara Mohamed decided to bless (curse) the internet with a whole, complete, total photoshoot with only feseekh posing as her deceased models. Below, is the abomination in full-view:
1. The eyes are the windows to the soul
2. Like a bouquet of decomposing flowers
3. The final scene in 300 looked exactly like that
4. Say a prayer for the deceased
5. Romanticizing feseekh is exactly what the world needs:
So, how did we get here, my friends? I don’t even know what’s going on anymore.
For Egyptians are dark and full of terror.
Egypt Made it To the Top of the List Using Oranges
For years, Egypt has been well known for exporting a lot of our unique ancient Egyptian cotton and as you know, most things we import are from China. Everything you own probably has an imprint on it claiming that it was “made in China“.
Which is why we were genuinely proud and happy to hear that Egypt has finally overtaken Spain as the top orange exporter worldwide!
Spain was always well known for their citrusy oranges that has been a top seller for years and years. We’re glad to finally hear the Egypt beat Spain and is currently the top orange exporter worldwide according to Abdel Hamid el Demerdash, the head of the Agriculture Exporting Council.
The year before, charts and graphs showed that Spain was dominating regarding the orange market and trading. This year though, it is shown that Spain has ranked second to Egypt for the first time in history! What?
According to Demerdash, Egypt tends to earn an income of $1 billion dollars a year off of oranges. Ever since 2017, Egypt was keen on making it to the top of the list by showing people how our country grown oranges are the best. Since then, 17% has increased annually on exporting oranges.
It is known that Brazil, India, China, US and Mexico are the top producers for citrus, but all of their citrus goes into domestic consumption rather than exporting and importing.
Egypt’s cheaper and healthier oranges have been flooding the market world wide and has made it on the top shelves of Myanmar, Japan, Russia, Europe, and even Uruguay!
The government has been working in expanding the amount and acres of farmland throughout the years to allow a larger profit and income to enter our country. Egypt has also been a powerful exporter in terms of Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, and even Grapes!
Egypt had faced difficulties in 2017 when Kenya, Saudi Arabia, and even Sudan had banned our fruits from entering their market due to the amount of pesticides induced in the vegetables and fruits thus violating international health and safety standards! Yikes!
Which is why we’re left dumbfounded and honestly quite impressed at the amount of positive remarks and changes we’ve been making recently! Watch out people because Egypt is booming!
Kim Kardashian’s Plant Based Diet for a Perfect Body
We all dream of having the ideal body and perfect health, yet not all of us are capable of keeping up with our health, I mean who doesn’t enjoy junk food? Famous celebrity Kim Kardashian, mostly known for her body, reveals that the secret to her perfect figure is behind the food she eats.
Did you guys know that Kim’s diet is solely based on plants and vegetables? Not only does the mother of 4 strict herself to these nourishing platters, but she also lets her entire family follow the same plant based meals every day and encourages Kanye to support such a decision!
Kim decided to make a major shift in her life and change the way she’s eating back in 2019. The thing is, at home is the only time she eats plant based dishes, when outside enjoying her life, she definitely prompts for a pizza. It’s important to balance out your life rather than cut things off completely.
From sweet potatoes to seasoned avocado slices, you name it, Kim eats it all! Beauty Queen Beyonce has also recently urged her fans to embrace a meat-free regimen. Throughout her entire journey, Kim shares delicious healthy recipes on her fan base to encourage people for healthier better alternatives to eat.
Vegan Spinach and Artichoke Dip :This is what Kim tends to have as a snack! Rather than eat chips with a can of soda, choose a healthier alternative!
Vegan Tacos: You could still eat your usual food, what’s important is that you add healthy veggies and plants.
A Mexican Meal: A delicious way of getting the right amount of protein into your system!
Fruit and Granola Bowl with Vegan Eggs and Sausage: Tasty breakfast with your normal fruits, nuts, and smoothies alongside Vegan Eggs and Sausages! Colorful!
Sea Moss Smoothie and Avocado Toast : Another great way of having a healthy breakfast or snack even!
Sweet Potato Hash with Avocado Slices: The picture says it all, I mean who wouldn’t want to eat these delicious food?
Another interesting controversial issue Kim addresses is that even though vegetable and plants may not taste as delicious as juicy burgers, it does not mean that you can’t make it delicious. It’s your kitchen and you’re your own chef so cook and mix things as you please, what’s important is that you balance out your meals and truly focus on feeding your body healthy meals that will help you flourish rather than get sick and sometimes even food poisoning.
The reason why Kim chose to change her lifestyle altogether was not just for a healthy prosperous life, but also because she suffers from Psoriasis, a skin condition that makes the skin extremely itchy and also very dry
Making time for yourself is the most important part of your entire journey here on earth. Self love is a crucial first step one needs to not only achieve but also overcome, because this is the reason we’re here in the first place aren’t we? Queen K encourages her fans to take a change by posting her delicious meals as well as helps teach her fans the importance of self love.
