  • Primal in Aruba.... epic fail

    I got to spend a lovely week in Aruba.... but dang, healthy food choices were SO LIMITED. I figured life would be all grilled fish with tropical fruits. No. We had so much trouble finding healthy food. Fish was always fried or in sauce. I did have a steak salad one night but the salad was tiny. Breakfast was eggs that I picked up and microwaved. At the grocery, very few veggies- a few sad cucumbers, but I scored a bag of oranges.

    The people who owned the inn we stayed out said that most produce comes on containers from China and most people just eat junk food.

    The good thing is I came back happy to buy a ton of vegetables. LOL, I think I have eaten 8 servings of veggies already today.

    But if you are going to Aruba, eating primal is hard. Maybe plan on doing an all meat diet.

    I've found on vacation it often pays to get a place with a kitchen and cook for myself- it's healthier for my body and my wallet. In Hawaii, fresh fish was ridiculously cheap and so was fruit. I have no idea about Aruba, but similar climates so I would imagine sort of similar options for food, if you cook for yourself.

        so was fruit.
        Hard to find! The produce aisles were so bare. I ordered a steak salad and it was probably 12 ounces of filet and maybe 1 cup of salad. Like the reverse of a US salad.

          We had the same issue in the Bahamas awhile back, there was no fruit. A salad was very small, but expensive. Fish was fried.

            You're on vacation. In Aruba! Who cares that ____ isn't primal. Enjoy yourself and stop stressing.

              Good point, but I really like vegetables and fruit. It was just hard on the stomach to have to eat so much fried food. However, It probably did help to soak up the alcohol. Have a good time!
