Eating Healthy While Traveling Day 9 in Brazil – A trip to the local Feira

My eating healthy trip has come to an end with Day 9 being my final day. I’m sad but glad to be going home, back to my Shadow (my dog), my green smoothies and most importantly my bed.

I didn’t realize how exhausted I was from the Match Day event (Nigeria vs Bosnia). I woke up really late. I then realized with the time being close to midday that brunch was the only option available. Today is my last full day in Brazil and I wanted to make the most of it. After brunch I decided to head over to the State park – Parque Mãe Bonifácia. A lovely park with outdoor gym equipment, jogging/walking trail and plenty of green area to run and play(my boys made some friends and played football with them). I ended the day with some fresh coconut juice.

I spent the evening at the Local Sunday Fair. Food, Art, Toys, Music were all on display. My initial plans were to just look around at the artwork and purchase a few souvenirs, however I was fascinated by the different types of food being prepared on site and decided to have dinner there. I ran into a little issue which has been somewhat of an issue while in Brazil and that is finding non-meat dishes. Urghh! I finally found a place that offered vegetariano wraps. Yay!! I had an interesting conversation with the lady and her husband while she made my wrap. My portuguese is not that great, however the lady’s husband was Irish and both of them spoke English. Double Yay!!

In Yesterday’s blog I had mentioned that I was missing my daily smoothies. In addition to my vegetariano wrap, I was able to purchase a freshly made orange juice drink with mint at the Fair. Triple Yay!!

Salad with sauteed greens, noodles and fish strips.
