However, I do love my veggies too and one thing I always notice when I travel is that I just don't eat as many vegetables as normal. In fact sometimes it feels almost like I've become a cake eating carnivore with the meals you get at restaurants and the kinds of "holiday" food I indulge in.
|Having access to markets like these in Paris did mean we ate some veggies.|
Because we stayed in apartments with kitchens for much of our trip, S and I did do some self catering and as a result, this trip was probably less veggie deprived that usual, but I was still craving them by the time we got home. So much so that even in our terribly tired jet lagged state, the first thing we did after getting home, having a shower and putting a load of washing on, was jump in the car and head to the fresh food markets. We bought a heap of fresh fruit and veggies and have been enjoying them ever since.
|And I attempted to eat my body weight in fresh berries.|
S made a huge pot of veggie soup which has been our dinner pretty much ever since we got home and I made a giant batch of veggie pasta to have for lunches. Today as I ate my ratatouille pasta (which was significantly more vegetable than pasta) I reflected on just how delicious veggies are and how good they make me feel.
And so I add vegetables to one of the things I love coming home to!
What "home" foods do you miss when you are on holiday? And do you have a favourite vegetable?
