Beans! Falafel and ‘Free-From Food’ Travel
Happy weekend! 🙂 Those of you who have had half term this week, I hope you enjoyed it to the full (like we did)! 🙂
If you read my last post you will have seen that we are travelling… but where are we?! Here are some clues…
Let’s have a look at what ‘Free-From’ food is available here? For a start there’s fruits – mostly melons, apples, oranges, grapes, avocado, mango, pineapple, limes and plums from what we’ve seen. Vegetables don’t tend to feature too much as main meals, but salads are available in most places and the people are friendly enough to provide something different to what’s on the menu!
Falafel! Yes… this is fast becoming a vegan favourite and it is widely available here – just ask! As with most things here it doesn’t appear to be over processed, generally just chickpeas and herbs! 🙂 Almost always served with houmous and usually bread – but ask if you can switch the bread for salad if you’re gluten free.
Beans! I love beans, lentils, chickpeas and suchlike but not usually for breakfast – okay we do quite often have chickpeas for breakfast actually (these less the veg)! In our hotel there are these same beans everyday! Not British baked beans no! (although they did have those this morning)! but beans which are quite literally just beans! Well so it seems!
Any ideas yet where we are? Have a look at this… BIG fun!
So now you have it… shiny tall random buildings, fruits, falafel, houmous and beans…where are we?!? 😀
