BACK TO EATING HEALTHY

PREVIOUS / NEXT

FOOD by KRISS on 14 january 2016

BACK TO EATING HEALTHY Spain has lots of options to eat healthy as do most of mediterranean countries which base their diets on fresh products with low or good fats such as olive oil, fish, a huge variety of vegetables and fruits.
Right before leaving Nerja for Costa Rica we had reached a super balanced diet based on smoothies, vegetables and fruits, nuts and water.

We managed to keep up with a rather good diet in Costa Rica, eating mostly mandarines, coconuts and platanos but we completely messed it up in the US ! The photo of the overpriced burger at the five guys attest for that.
We didn’t live on junk food because I honestly think none of us would have the taste for that now but we did buy some ice cream (peanut butter ice cream even !) and buying healthy food in Florida cost us a fortune.
A single small bag of almonds costs nearly $8 at Publix and we cut down on our usual foods a lot.

Back in Nerja, we can buy delicious healthy food at any corner of every street at bargain prices and this is a huge relief for us and our stomachs ! There are the abuelas (grandmothers) selling fresh fruits and vegetables from their doorsteps, the little grocery stores and even the bigger supermarkets who do have a rather wide choice of good quality products.
Right now in January you can easily find the following fresh foods for practically nothing :

- Avocados (still number one in my books compared to both Costa Rica and Florida avocados which are in fact Hass avocados from Mexico).
- Mangoes (I always make sure I don’t get any of the Peruvian or Brazilian ones but local mangoes which are pure heaven).
- Papayas (always local wherever you buy them).
- Salads, courgettes, tomatoes.
- Radishes.
- Sweet potatoes.
- New potatoes.

And of course plenty of oranges, mandarines, clemenvillas and lemons because it’s the season ! Bon appétit.
