Nutritional values

A dish made just for women: the many different ingredients have a supportive effect if you want to become pregnant or are already pregnant, during breastfeeding and later in the menopause. In addition, they generally relieve stress - and are therefore also good for men.

If you want to save yourself the trouble of grilling the meat decoratively on the lemon grass bars, simply make meatballs out of it.
