Bordeaux, France, taken on October 1, 2011
For fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, cheese, and bread, your best bet is a farmer’s market on a Saturday morning, and what better example is there than Bordeaux’s very own Marché Des Capucins? OK, I didn’t go there often when I lived in Bordeaux, but I enjoyed every visit, even if it was purely for the colours of the market that I loved so much 😉
A closer look at the fruits and vegetables section at a supermarket made me realized that there are many that I wouldn’t have been able to name without a sign (yes, I know that is a cauliflower). And we haven’t even gotten to the weird stuff at the Chinese supermarket yet…
I assembled what I thought was a super healthy (and super simple) dinner, consisting of a mango, half a cucumber, three and half slices of prosciutto ham, and a glass of mango passion fruit smoothie. Then I realized that prosciutto ham isn’t all that healthy (but it tastes so darn good!) I guess it’s…mostly healthy? At the very least, the plate was very colourful and the food tasted great together, and that made me happy 🙂
