What to avoid eating on holiday

Holiday Food, Importance of street food preparation

Food is one of the greatest pleasures on vacation, but can become a major cause of health problems. Find out what not to eat on vacation to protect you.

1. Food prepared in a superficial way

If you go in the food markets or stalls selling street food products should be very well made to protect you from salmonella or other pests. Choose places high demand, the ingredients are always fresh, and do not buy meat or products made in hurry.

2. Drinks offered by strangers

It is a general rule; do not accept drinks that strangers offer you. When you are abroad, be cautious and avoid traps. There are, however, cases in which the invitation to a drink is a tradition. In Turkey, for example, traders sometimes invite their customers to drink tea together and negotiate product prices.

3. Wet vegetables and fruits

In some countries, especially the desert, tap water should not be consumed. When fruits and vegetables are not well cleared after washing, such as for leaf lettuce, food consumption can lead to traveler's diarrhea, a common condition.

4. Extravagant dishes with weird ingredients

When traveling abroad, you meet dishes made from the most unexpected ingredients, from worms to beetles. In some places, as it is the strangest food, there is even more likely to be told it has special properties: fertility, virility, etc. If you have a sensitive stomach or do not know how safe is the premises, give up to an experience that can be a lifetime, but also risky for your health.

5. Seafood in areas located far from the sea

When you eat fish and seafood is recommended that you do this in tourist destinations located near water. Chances are better to eat a fresh product in a location situated near the sea, than if you buy the same product from a town city. Then, seaside restaurants are specialized in these products and you could have a pleasant surprise. Ask if the products are local products served at the restaurant, or brought from elsewhere.
