travel food

In general I think we do not eat as well when we travel so I must make more efforts. We recently stayed at a Best Western serving free breakfast. The kids love this. Except we all fell for for the temptation of a Danish, a donut ... a more or less concetrated orange juice. The milk and the oranges were good and healthy though and we had plenty of oranges. We supplemented our snacks with nuts. When eating out the cheaper places rarely offered vegetables. I came back home craving greens. Loved California oranges, missed home.

winter foods

why is it that we eat more sweets in winter and what is a good alternative?
The treats: tangerines, oranges, almonds, raisins and chocolate! Dates. And tons of tiny kourabiedes.
Then there is cabbage for the serious stuff, and fact is we eat more meat than in the summer.
