I visited 3 countries in 12th to 17th April: Finland, Poland, France. I enjoyed this very short trip. Now I try to review it from my meals of travel. My evaluation is not like Brillat Savarin who is the author “The Physiology of Taste”. Because I’m not gourmet. I’m interested in differences in foods and how difficulties to find and eat healthy foods in foreign countries. It’s easy to find fast food. I easily found MacDonald in these three countries. I didn’t try, but I checked the menu. It’s all similar, I guess. The price was affordable, but it includes too many fats and low fiber. If I buy it, it easily overs limit of fat which necessity of daily amount. However, I’m not so strict with myself while I traveling if I find traditional food or my favorite one in that country.

I chose the fish combo meal. Because I always try to get lower fat and healthy meals. My choosing one was like almost Japanese traditional food. Buckwheat noodles, include seasoning little fish in steamed rice, the grilled sliced fishes are maybe Saba in Japanese, mackerel in English.Black seaweed: we call it ‘Hijiki’ in Japanese. Small shrimps, whole green peas, deep fried and boiled tofu.

It’s tasty, but the cinnamon snail is too much fat and sugar. The salmon soup has healthy animal protein. the way of cooking is no problem. (not deep fried or grilled)
cinnamon snail 3.9euro, Salmon soup 10.4euros(Brown brad included)I bought these foods in Stockmann in Helsinki. The previous day’s dinner was lack of fiber, so I selected these.
apple 0.52, hummus 1.95, Mix green leaves 1.5, small tomatoes 1.55, Sum 6.82euros
