It’s hard to imagine a trip to Russia without trying pancakes or in the Russian language blini. Russian pancakes are thin, lacy, and soaked in enough butter and fat to help you survive the country’s harsh winters. The blini is traditionally filled with red caviar, jam, sour cream and soft cheese. But to be honest, blini is not good for a person’s body shape. One serving is fine, but when you face mountains of blini on the Russian table, it can be hard to stop eating them. If you know of anyone who can stop after eating just one, let us know!

Semolina is a byproduct of grain production. In Soviet times, cheap and fast-cooked semolina was the main ingredient for children’s breakfasts and was used as a base for popular casseroles, puddings, syrniki and porridge. Semolina consists of starch, and is often used as a substitute for whole grains. Due to the high amount of starch, these foods are not healthy to eat on a daily basis.
