Travel make eating right difficult. Yesterday, I flew to Memphis – spring is beautiful here – especially the flowering trees in Overton Park!. The view from my hotel room shows typical American suburbia – very car-centric, with nowhere to buy fresh food in sight.
In the hotel restaurant, the menu was difficult for me. Even the “healthy” items (see menu below) weren’t what I would call healthy – cheese = added fat.
I asked for salmon, steamed, no salt, no nothing… and a double order of steamed veggies.
What came? Salmon came as requested… veggies came swimming in butter! I asked that veggies be redone – and half were steamed, but they snuck in the buttered zucchini again! I had to pick around the zucchini.
But, the sisters in the restaurant were kind enough to give me some apples to take (gratis) when I complained that I was still hungry. Southern hospitality!
