Do you eat different food here?

Recommended Posts

Makes me laugh this thread, you can get everything in both Countries food wise, if you want to eat healthy or unhealthy its up to you, the Country does not dictate your diet...you do.

 

True but the quality and taste of things differs. It's like so many things, it's different in each country, not necessarily better. For instance, I'm pigging out on mangoes right now because I know they won't be the same in the UK - but on the other hand, I'm looking forward to strawberries that actually taste like strawberries (and ditto tomatoes).

Love mangoes but you are right about the strawberries. Just occasionally we get good ones but not in the same league as the Kentish ones. Tomatoes are not bad, especially the little truss ones. I think they are on the improve here, as they say. I never buy those great big cheap ones, though, they are terrible.

A roast in the build up and wet season in Darwin is a definite pass! I find I eat more Asian style food here but sometimes you can't beat home comfort food from the UK. I do miss proper fish and chips though, that's always top of the list when i get back to the UK.

I eat basically the same here as I do in Australia,and obviously adapt meals to suit the weather.Slow cooker.roasts,casseroles,stir fries etc in winter in both countries and salads,bbq's,and also stir fries in summer.I do grow a lot of my own vegetables (have in both countries)so I don't have freshness concerns lol

Possibly depends on how long you have lived in a hot climate?

22 years for me, eat whatever I want when we want, lived in Asia for 10 of those, ate local sometimes and very English at other.

yesterday 36' so air con was on and I cooked a roast chicken, it's what we fancied. Often have soup for lunch as often as say a salad.

the mangos and peaches have been lovely this year, probably wouldn't eat as many mangos in UK? Prawns are pretty special here on the Sunshine Coast so do again probably eat more here.

Still have slow cooker meals, roasts and barbies. Not a lot has changed since we were in the UK, but I reckon we eat healthier with less snacking on 'bad' food. I eat a lot more fruit now. Hated avocado in the UK and love it here.


Don't have regrets because you were too scared to try something.
