Food is another passion of mine that is high up there with travelling. Truth be told, it is a huge part of my travels and my daily life. Whether I’m out somewhere or just relaxing at home, I beam with joy if I am able to have my fix of favorite eats. It can be as simple as spam, eggs and baked beans – my all time comfort food or as fancy as escargot. Last week was a happy week for me because a visit to my favorite Saturday market = many a tasty treats. Sharing with you some of my joys from the simple treats I picked up last week.
Some Useful Information:
Quinoa: It’s pronounced keen-wah and while it is practically unknown here, it is a staple of the ancient Incas. It is a grain that comes from the Andes Mountains and a 100-g portion is known to be a rich source of iron and vitamin B; a good source of protein; a source of calcium, vitamin B2, and niacin. And best of all, it’s absolutely yummy. You can find this at the grains section in any Healthy Options outlet.
Lartisan Boulangerie Francaise: This is where I most-often get my breads. It shares a space with Mikey’s Deli along Jupiter although I seldom get them there. Our neighborhood deli, Santi’s (thank God) also carries their breads albeit a limited range.
Rizal Dairy Farms: Can be found in Salcedo Market. This is where I get my stash of Greek Yogurt.
Picolé: Also found at the Salcedo Market, I chanced on this on my way home and it just called out to me through the scorching heat. I just had to get myself some. And by golly – they’re heavenly!
