#Worldphotoday: Belizean food
In honor of #worldphotoday I thought I would share a photo of a home cooked meal I made while I was staying Belize this past April.
The main course consisted of:
- fried plaintain
- stir fried callaloo cooked in home made coconut oil (oil was made by one of the Garifuna locals)
- brown rice
YUM!! My mouth is watering just thinking of it…
This was too gross and too good not to share. I have known about food fillers, and because I mainly buy organic, I wasn’t too worried.
Well, I was wrong.
Since I’m now living abroad, my food choices have had to be switched up and around. It’s not something I’m really happy with, but I have to work with what’s available to me.
A week or so ago, I was having a conversation with a friend about how difficult it’s become to buy ‘real’ food. So, unless it’s growing in your backyard, buyer beware.
It’s really been 7 looonnnnnggggg months since I’ve posted anything here? Time sure flies. I’ve since moved to Hawaii and am learning how to adjust to the sticker shock on the price of food out here.
Still though, it doesn’t mean I sacrifice my good eating habits. I’m going to make an effort to continue posting here. Since food is such a HUGE part of my life. Even more so now that I’m pregnant. Having to watch what I eat to make sure I’m getting enough protein and all that kind of stuff. So, stay tuned!
Today, I’m linking to a website that an old coworker of mine referred me to. I’m applying for a position being offered there which is why she sent it over. Since I will be having to cook for a child soon enough, this couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time!
For all you parents out there, check it out. I like that her style is very friendly and approachable.

I came up with this fast, healthy, grain-free breakfast solution mostly out of desperation. In my rush to get out the door every morning, I kept missing “th…
Well, this was an awesome idea!
Who says you can’t play with your food?
