Must-Try Snacks and Dishes from Asia and Europe

From German franks to Mexican enchiladas. In this topic, we will cover some of the most famous dishes around the world that you should absolutely try. I know each of us has their own preference. That’s why it’s hard to come up with a decent list that can please all of you. Sorry if your favorite dish was not included on this list. So let’s get it started shall we?

Two dishes per continent. We’ll cover Europe and Asia in this one. Is that fine with you? Okay! Let’s get it on!

Asia

Thai Green Chicken Curry and Roti
Thai Green Chicken Curry and Roti

Starting off our list, is one of the most famous and widely known dish from Asia. Thai and those guys from India absolutely love this dish. I’m talking about Curry!

No. Not Stephen Curry.

There are many variations of this dish. There’s chicken curry, red curry, chickpea curry, Thai curry. Name it. I don’t recommend this to the ones that don’t like spicy food. Has a distinctive aroma and it tastes very good.

The next dish that you should try in the Asian Cuisine is got to be Adobo from the Philippines. Made with soy sauce, a dash of vinegar, bay leaves, a pinch of sugar, salt, pepper, hard-boiled eggs and some meat. Voilah! You got yourself a yummy dish! Many foreigners love the taste of this dish. Maybe because it is salty, sour and sweet all at the same time. You should definitely try it out.

Asians are known to drink tea while eating. They are very conscious about their health. Juicing even made its way in Asia. It detoxifies our bodies while providing valuable vitamins and minerals. Learn more about juicing by visiting Juicer Kings. Cool stuff.

Europe

Fish and Chips from England

I absolutely love the taste of European cuisine. I would recommend visiting Sicily and try their pasta dish called Pasta Alla Norma. It’s made of pasta (of course), tomatoes, fried aubergine and some ricotta cheese. Simple, but pretty tasty. Match it with Sicily’s famous Olive Oil and some bread. Yeah, makes my mouth water too.

How can we forget the snack that England is known for. Fish and Chips! Booya! You must try the legitimate thing from England. Made from fish and potatoes. Nothing can be quite comforting that chilling with your mates, drinking a pint or two and eating some Fish and Chips. Tasty. Classic taste that you would certainly love.

 

I hope that you enjoyed reading this article. Bon Appetit!

Travel Habits for a Healthier Diet

A good diet sometimes gets thrown out the window when you travel extensively for varied reasons. Unforeseen events or a whirlwind of activities may get in the way of eating healthy. It may be challenging at times, but keeping a good diet when you are frequently on the road does not have to as hard it may seem.

menu
Eat regular meals. Being busy is almost always a given regardless if you are on a business or pleasure trip. As a frequent traveler, you know how common it is to miss regular mealtimes when things get busier than expected. Avoid skipping meals no matter how busy things get. Make sure to head out for a decent meal.

 

breakfast
Wake up earlier, if needed. Waking up early gives you extra time to eat breakfast before you leave for the airport or from the hotel for an early appointment. If you cannot afford to linger long enough to enjoy a good meal, make sure to bring something to eat or drop by a café or restaurant along the way.

 

healthy snacks
Prepare a stash of healthy snacks. Bring healthy travel snacks that you can easily fit in your carry-on luggage. Energy and granola bars, assorted nuts, dried fruits, cereals, oatmeal cookies, Fig Newtons, and crackers are some of the non-perishables that you can stash in your bag.

 

salad
Choose healthier options. Hotels usually have a wide selection of foods on their breakfast buffets. Check available choices first before you start filling up your plate. Avoid anything creamy, fried, or greasy. Opt for hard boiled or poached eggs instead of bacon or ham and cheese omelettes. Go for wheat or multi-grain breads and cereals. Get your protein from vegetables, low-fat dairy products, or lean meat. Stick to low-sugar or non-sugary drinks like water, unsweetened fresh fruit or vegetable juices, and skim milk. If you are dining out, go for light meals or any healthy entrees and other selections on the menu.

 

St. Lawrence Market
Find a farmer’s market or supermarket near you. Replenish your stock of healthy foods if you are staying for a few days in your destination. Visit the local market for fresh fruits and ready-to-eat vegetables, health food shops, or convenience stores. Buy more non-perishables if your accommodation does not have a kitchenette you can use to prepare your own meals. At the very least, you should have a small fridge that you can use to store your food supplies.
