I just got back from two weeks in the Azores and my vacation has inspired this blog about carbs.
I was not really sure what to expect with the cuisine in the Azores. I assumed with all the rich land and ocean that I would eat plenty of fresh fruits, fish and vegetables. Instead I found my self surrounded by bread, boiled potatoes and cheese. Every meal consisted of cheese and bread and usually boiled potatoes, boiled cabbage, boiled kale, boiled carrots and boiled pork. I was missing fresh salads, whole grains, quinoa, brown rice and variety!! I never, however, felt deprived of fruit. There was plenty and I tried passion fruit for the first time. Delish!
While on vacation I was reading fitness magazine and ironically came across a Good Carb? Bad Carb? article.The article was helpful and I thought I would share it with you!
