Travels with the Friday Foodie: Oslo

I had a visitor in my room yesterday, all the way up on the tenth floor, which in USA means the eleventh floor. The little bugger was exhausted, but I “helped” him back out the window before he had the chance to revive and use his stinger!

Eating healthy on the road can be tricky, especially in Europe where pastry is the easiest breakfast to find, but I am finding some gems here and there, and last night was one for sure. We ate at Cafe Saracafe Sara where they serve a bit of everything, though seem to have a Turkish emphasis. I started with an eleven dollar glass of house red wine, yikes, but house in Europe is usually a very good wine, and this was no exception! For my meal I had vegetable kebobs!

They were grilled soft and had a light sauce that probably was made of yogurt. The side salad had a dressing of lemon and maybe a hint of oil. The rice and veggies were perfect together, but I only took a bite of the pita bread. Surprisingly, it was a bit bland and didn’t seem worth the calories. And this is one of the secrets of not over eating on the road. If something is not absolutely delicious, cast it aside and save calories for the treats you know you will allow yourself, which for me is some incredible pastries and of course…CHOCOLATE!

Healthy is always possible, but knowing there will be allowances made makes for a more realistic and enjoyable experience!

What are your tricks for traveling?

Peace and joy!
