Happy Friday! We had a busy day today visiting Limassol, another beautiful city on the southern coast of Cyprus! I’m happy to report that my face is quite tan. I feel much better now that we’ve had so much sunshine here! Hopefully, our Vitamin D stores will be topped up for the rest of winter. 😎☀️
Our meals have stayed the same even though we are on holiday here away from our temporary home base in Belgrade. We didn’t stock this kitchen as much since we’d only be in Cyprus for two weeks. We also didn’t bring all of our kitchen tools. The kitchen here still had everything we needed (and more–it came with an oven!) so we were able to prepare all of our meals at home, no problem! Pasta with marinara is one of our go-to meals no matter where we are. 😋
Today we were out and about most of the day, so I had a big bowl of oatmeal with fruit and a latte for my breakfast (Kuba had a smoothie bowl) and then we brought a dozen of my healthy homemade oatmeal cookies with us on the bus to Limassol. For our lunch, we picked up strawberries and massive mandarins at a local market and enjoyed these along with the rest of our cookies. And once we returned to Larnaca, we had a seeded baguette on our walk back to our flat. For dinner, we had jasmine rice with a veggie-packed marinara (just like the marinara pictured here!).
You can always find a way to eat healthy food while travelling. It just takes some planning. Eating at home, bringing food with us when we are out and about, buying food at a market or grocery store instead of a restaurant saves us loads of money too! We only spent €7.25 while in Limassol (the fruit was pricy) and our dinner cost us just over €5 (for both of us)! Eating (and drinking coffee, tea, etc.) out is crazy expensive. So if you want to save some serious cash, quit eating out entirely or cut back. Just some money motivation for your weekend! 😜
