If you’ve never been to a place like the subcontinent of India before, your first trip will be an eye-opener. You’re sure to have an unforgettable experience, and you will be overwhelmed by all of your senses.
Today we’ll talk about taste. I like to call myself a foodie, though in reality I may just be greedy. Anyway, the food in India was the freshest I’ve ever had in my life. All of the food was grown or caught within a couple of miles of where I ate.
I was unsure about what I would be eating during my month-long trip to India, but assumed it would be a high intake of vegetables and no beef. But not all Indians are Hindu and hold the cow sacred. I later found out many restaurants had a selection of beef and other animals. During my time there I didn’t eat anything that had been cloned, pumped full of antibiotics, injected with hormones, sprayed with pesticides, or contained pink slime. I really could taste the difference, and enjoyed every bite. I was pescetarian for my trip, and enjoyed rice, vegetables, naan, fish, and other dishes. Did I eat with my hands? Most times yes; and it was finger-licking-good!
In case your Indian adventure isn’t planned just yet, don’t worry. There are plenty of Indian restaurants right here in New Jersey.
