Guess what? I’m in Central America!
I’ve been hanging down here since April as part of my life in transition and am totally high on life and tacos right now. Oh so many tacos. I must admit though, as cheap and delicious as they come, I do miss some good ol’ home-cooked vegetables. Dearest vegetables, oh how I crave you. But yes, the food is quite amazing and readily available on every street corner in all shapes, sizes and for all price ranges. Whilst I try and keep my sanity eating as local and natural as possible and opt for gluten-free Mexican and Central American dishes (for the most part), there are always going to be exceptions.
So what are my travel plans, you may be wondering? Well, from Mexico, I’ve made my way South to Belize, then onwards through to Guatemala where I’ll be stationed for a little while learning some Spanish. From there, we’ll see where the road takes me but I hear Nicaragua and Costa Rica bellowing my name.
In celebration of this glorious, sun-soaked, flavour-filled adventure that I’m on, I’ve asked my most favourite blogging amigos to share with me their favourite Mexican and Central American dishes. A few Carribean dishes have snuck their way in here too because let’s face it, the whole region has so much to offer food-wise! Lucky for you, they’re all gluten-free and made using real food ingredients so you can recreate these delicious dishes at home and just pretend you’re out travelling with me right now *cough cough*. Bueno!
