Having Fructose Malabsorption I’ve been living for so long with the mindset of “Can’t have that, never eat this…” that it just about blew my mind when I discovered that I could eat marshmallows. Homemade, of course. And making them was a breeze! Or relatively easy, anyway.
The texture is a bit more jiggly than grocery-store marshmallows, but the taste is great!

When provisioning the boat I headed to the market to get some fresh veg as the supermarket didnt seem to have any the night before, well the market certainly did… and here are some photos to proove it, the place was wonderful and so colourful and sold possibly the best tomatoes we have eaten all trip!
Just look at all those colours, unfortunatly all of these were taken on my mobile phone as my camera was safely back on ship (there wouldnt have been room for it once I bought all the shopping anyways) but I will keep my eye out for the rest of thr trip and get some more proper ones.
Okay, so after the drinks I’ll talk a little bit about the different kinds of foods I ate during my trip to Brazil (yes I know – I’m already back here in Germany, time passed so fast!). First of all, there’s the banana. Well, everybody knows that kind of fruit, obviously, but in Brazil there are two different types of bananas: The ones you eat right away and the ones you have to cook or fry first before you can eat them. They are bigger than eating-right-away-bananas, and so you can recognize them pretty easily. You can buy them in the local supermarkets or markets and Borboleta made a partly fried- partly cooked banana for my to try it. Yummy! It tasted really good! It was sweet, but not too sweet and fried banana has definitely a better taste than just cooked ones.
Seriously… Costa Rica was amazing.
I’m looking though all of my pics from the trip & thinking it’s time to plan a trip back! We had so much fun meeting locals, enjoying the ocean & drinking cocktails out of coconuts, it made it almost impossible to leave!
So be patient with me as I get organized… I will have full vacation details soon!
Yesterday was so super awesome!!!!!! I saw tons of amazing yoga, got to introduce my cousins to my studio mates. Chris placed 8th!!!!! My great aunt came to see us. AND!!! It SNOWED!!!!!!! It was my first time ever seeing snow falling!
Of course, that’s not to say the day was without challenges. I don’t have to eat lunch. That’s in The Rules. But my cousins don’t have eating disorders, and, therefore, have no aversion to lunch. I got really upset and couldn’t figure out how to explain myself, or what to do… Then Robyn said “if you don’t want to eat, that’s ok.” I calmed down, enjoyed the time spent with my cousins… And Emmy was dining a few tables down from us, which was pretty cool.
Getting to dinner was a fiasco, all by itself. I cried a whole bunch. But in the end, it worked out. We…
