Eat like a … (Greek)
Eat like a … (Greek)
Today we fly to another European country to follow our series where we live a day like national residents and eat traditional dishes.
Off we go to Greece. As usual, we begin with an overview of the meals.
Traditionally, Greeks pick three meals a day with snacks after breakfast and before dinner.
So, how does a Greek day go? You start the day with a simple breakfast Usually, breakfast is not a popular meal in Greek culture.
Greeks eat a mere meal that consists of herbal tea and a piece of bread or a soft-boiled egg and bread.
Another traditional dish is tarhana, which is a type of grains or pasta served with milk.
Nowadays, they only grab a cheese pie and coffee on their way to work or school.
Since breakfasts aren’t much, it is time for a snack You get your snack by 11 am.
There are limited options: another cheese pie, spinach pie, or grilled cheese sandwich.
Lunch is the main meal Lunch is served between 1.30 and 2.30 in the afternoon or after everyone comes home from work or school. Mostly, it is a vegetable stew or casserole with cheese, bread, and salad.
After a little nap, it is time for another snack In the past, Greeks used to wake up at 5 pm after a nap to grab a snack.
It is usually a cup of Greek coffee and a small dessert or cookie.
Now not everybody has the time for rests, but Greeks never gave up on the coffee.
Dinners are late Unlike the European style, Greeks have dinner between 9 and 10 at night.
As breakfast it is also simple, you can have yogurt and fruit, a salad, or a sandwich from your choice.
I have to say that I find the Greek diet so healthy and refreshing.
So, why don’t we try it for more than a day?
