Welcome to part 2 of the Eating Healthy during Travel series.
Below let’s take a look at some “comida” options from the local Mercadona.
Bag of veggies
You can find these guys for 1 to 2 euros. Great for salads and wraps.
At first the idea of putting this rotisserie chicken in the microwave to heat it up grossed me out! But after tasting it at a picnic, I stopped going going to my local “Pollo Asado” restaurant. It’s so tasty and flavorful!
Whole Wheat Wraps
Words can’t express my excitement when I found whole wheat wraps in the local Carrefour. #smallTownLife
This cousin to the corn and white flour tortilla is a much healthier option! If I remember correctly the price was 2.99 (euros)
Quick Meal options!
Easy veggie and chicken wraps. Omit the chicken for vegetarian option.
Simple veggies and salmon lunch or dinner).
This is a fish option from the menu del dia. Menu del dias will come with bread…leave it on the table ha ha 🙂
Tapas option: Pulpo y gambas (octopus and shrimp )…leave the bread 🙂
Drink option: skip the soda and get a shandy. It’s beer with lemonade 🙂 (*OK…get some sparkling water with lemon ^_^)
Garbanzo bean, Sardines, and salad. The perfect el cheapo meal if you’ve just spent all your money traveling to Barcelona 🙂
Vegetarian option: Garbanzo beans, green beans, spinach and tomato.
