More food (breakfast!)

So, there's a food theme that's materializing this week, so I'm going to go with the flow and put up something that's long overdue: photos of the food from last summer's trip to Turkey. I'll start with breakfast... Brace yourself -- whatever you find on the table in the morning is going to be a disappointment after looking at this buffet...

This morning's cereal didn't cut it. I am now drooling on my keyboard.

Yeah. I knew my bowl of Special K sucked this morning. I just didn't know how much it sucked until right now.

Mmmmm...! However, hotel breakfast buffets are often wasted on me. I end up reverting to basics: Oatmeal, a boiled egg, coffee, maybe a glass of juice. Fruit and milk don't agree with me when in amounts large enough to be considered a meal. But I'd certainly try that yoghurt!

I would try very small amounts of different things along with some yogurt and rooibos (I always bring my own tea, just in case) -- by the end of our stay, I'd had a chance to try everything without ever eating a lot at one sitting. When I'm traveling, whether touring in the city (lots of walking) or out in the countryside (lots of climbing), I don't like to have a lot of food filling me up, so I keep morning meal to something light, like yogurt and fruit. I'm looking for energy food without a lot of weight. Same goes for lunch (one of my favorite mid-day meals was the nice cool gazpachoes we found in Spain) -- just a bit of fruit and a salad or soup is good. Of course, all restrictions are off for dinner, once we're done for the day! ;-D

When traveling, I eat according to when the next meal is expected. I have never had the habit of overeating, not even at hotel buffets, so I never feel stuffed. But having a small stomach means getting enough to sustain me until the next meal can be a challenge - hence the egg at breakfast. :-)

I don't necessarily feel full, but when it's hot out, even a little bit of heavy food feels like too much. Sometimes I feel hungry, but I prefer that to feeling weighed down. If I eat a good meal for dinner, it'll keep me going for the next day. And I usually carry something with me, like almonds or jerky) that'll take the edge off if I get too hungry.
