This is one of my last meals in Oslo, a vegetable lasagna. The noodles were homemade and very thin. Full of veggies and just a little cheese it was incredibly delicious. The sauce was a hollandaise for the asparagus that was so delicious I wanted to lick the bowl clean, but I didn’t. Notice how small the portions. In Europe, meals are always small portions. And vegetables are always served along side any dish. Our friends in Denmark and in France all commented that in their trips to the USA they go home sick from too much food, too many burgers, and no vegetables. We told them that is why we do not eat out much here as it is difficult to get a right sized meal or vegetables.
Here’s a few more pics from different places:
A mushroom tart that was more like a very thin crust pizza. Arugula is often piled onto this kind of dish.
This was a favorite in Dublin, a tomato tart with salad and coleslaw, all delicious!
And what would a visit to Ireland be without a Guinness? Though I concentrated on the ciders more often than the beer, I had to have a Guinness or two along the way. Cheers!
One of the best ways to eat healthy on a trip to Europe or in the USA is take advantage of fresh produce in the grocery or market. This is the fruits and vegetables of a small grocery in Oslo. Picking up some healthy choices for a picnic or a snack can help keep you on the right track no matter where you travel. I’ll share some more pics through out the week. Bon appetite!
Peace and joy!
