Eating healthily in Munich

As I always prepare my own food I was concerned how I would cope on holiday, staying in a hotel without a kitchen.

I was pleased to find our room was fitted with a mini bar, so I had access to a fridge.  But I knew my meals would have to be around salads and fresh ingredients, alongside whatever I could scrounge from the continental breakfast buffet in the mornings.

I even had a salad in the Hofbrauhaus.hofbrauhaus, salad, lettuce, tomato, carrot

And that’s just the salads I remembered to photograph.

I was inspired by the salads in Germany.  I think my salads were getting a bit samey.  I have learned that variety of tastes and textures are key.  Rather than having large portions of two or three vegetables, the salads were made up of a variety of different veg.

I was excited to go to the supermarket on Sunday.  When we went away I emptied the fridge and ‘freezer’ (we only have an icebox) so I was able to start from scratch.

It was certainly good to eat cooked vegetables again when I got home!

What are your favourite vegetables? Do you stick to the same thing, or do you like variety?  Which veg are always in your shopping bag?
