The Easter table is a real “megaton bomb” of calories, which a person must withstand, and, recall, after a long fast.
Taking care of your health, think about the fact that a holiday treat can, pardon the tautology, ruin your holiday. The foods that traditionally appear on the table on Easter Sunday contain too many high-calorie foods and should be eaten in moderation.
Chureks, eggs, lamb and kokoretsi, pouring wine and other various products are absorbed by the Greeks in huge quantities, and literally within a few hours. The food bomb is causing real damage to public health, doctors say.
For those who cannot control their eating habits, a calorie table has been published. Maybe it will save someone from going to the hospital with pancreatitis or other “table consequences”.
