ah yes...I am Italian born, living in Canada MOST of my life. Fast forward to NOW!!! I think that yes, even though we haven't changed our country of residence, we have definitely changed the way we eat. But a nice mocha latte with a piece of toast has always been my usual my "breakfast". I always have felt a little guilty when I've been told and read that "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Fresh fruits and vegetables make up much of our diet and in the summer (like now) the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, string beans, zucchini and herbs from my garden are absolutely the BEST. The Mediterranean diet is possible here on the West Coast of Canada. All the posts on this blog were very interesting.

Oh wow. We're actually moving to Italy in three months for four years (my husband is in the military). This was more informative than you'll ever know. I put ice in my water ALL the time. I have a hard time drinking it if it's not very cold—I don't drink soda or juice, just water for me. That'll be a hard change. So will all the pork. I practically live off chicken and turkey. The only pork I eat is bacon and occasionally sausage. I can't wait to go back read all of your posts!

A new fan here *^^* I've lived in the Thailand, New Zealand, the UK, Japan and now Austria in the last 7 years and my diet has changed quite a bit in each place. Being half Japanese, I always prepare a lot of Japanese food at home, though in Thailand I mostly just ate Thai food. In the UK I was working as a fine dining cook so I ate a lot of meat and vegetables which is not my preference - the same here in Austria, good fish is pretty hard to come by. I visit Italy a lot though, and get my fix there. I never go without brekkie though - mainly because I'm usually woken by hunger; I'm a total food monster.

I could have written just about the whole thing (with the exception of the beer bc I'm all for the wine!) Now the thought of those ice-cold 20 oz-ers makes me feel a bit ugh. Cola as a sit-down drink is a whole different thing. I remember some italian friends who moved to the US and asked - is it because of the high level of diabetes that people drink huge drinks everywhere! Even in their cars and at their desks! I found their perspective funny since it's not because of extreme thirst (rather just a habit) but it may be *causing* some of the diabetes we hear so much about. I've also got the breakfast thing - how funny. Maybe it's because a really good cappucio is enough on its own. That and the fact that I'm not huge on sweet breakfasts either. ps - factoid of the day - espresso has less caffeine than filter coffee since it doesn't hang around with the beans long! which is why you can have a couple of espresso-drinks per day without vibrating!
