It’s What I Ate Wednesday! I’ve started a series of Throwback Thursdays all about my graduation trip to the Bahamas with my friend Terri, so this What I Ate Wednesday is all about that tropical goodness!
Grocery Store Goods
Having just graduated a few weeks before and not having started jobs yet, we were still eating like cheap college kids! As everyone knows, peanut butter and jelly goes a long way, and we jazzed it up with some tropical choices like mango jelly and a (very hard and possibly not ripe) plantain. It got us through!
Farmers’ Market Finds
While walking around downtown Freeport, we stumbled up this amazing Bahamian Vendor’s Market! I love a good open-air, local market because that is the place to go for real culture and local small businesses. Check out the colorful fruits and veggies we found–all grown on the island!
You know I’m an adventurous eater. And I’m always up for fresh seafood. Well, we found an awesome seafood shack (literally a shack) with the awesome Bahamian woman who wanted to make sure we knew this was the traditional way to each fresh conch, called “Scorch Conch.” And later on, we got some incredibly fresh sushi!
So not everyone likes their food raw… so here are some cooked options for you! Almost everything was served with lime, which gave their food a definite tropical flair.
We were only there three days, but we did some good eating while we were there! What should I make sure to find on my next trip to the Bahamas and the Caribbean? Tell me in the comments section!
