Planes, red-eye flights, travel between time zones, jostling airports — they all make us want some simple, uncomplicated nourishment when we arrive home. That's in addition, of course, to the restaurant meals, market visits, and endless nibbles of a food-focused vacation.
The last time we came back from vacation, my husband and I snacked off a tray of simple, light foods for our first dinner back at home. It included the remnants of some olive bread we had bought while away, plus gooseberries, blueberries, some small bites of cheese with olives, apple slices, and cucumbers with radishes from the garden. Simple, light, and almost entirely unprocessed foods. Add some hot herbal tea and we had ourselves a very restorative meal.
What about you? How do you nourish yourself after a long trip or a vacation away from home?
