One of the unexpected advantages of my move to Portugal is the change in my everyday diet and the results on my health and my weight. Portugal is a low density population country, which means that its people can in most areas be fed by local foods and crops. Very few food miles – YEAH!
There are very few processed foods and very few frozen foods available where I am and almost everyone makes their food from scratch using fresh ingredients. The nearest thing we have to a takeaway is a shop that sells freshly grilled chicken and a home cooked pizza shop where fresh pizzas are cooked on the premises.
