In my Sicilian food tours, I love to ensure my guests experience the local people as much as possible. Sicilians really are the salt of the earth. I thought I would share with you some of the qualities that make Sicilian people so special, and Sicily such an amazing place to visit.

Soups

Soups are a perfect meal for a snack, lunch or dinner and make use of all the vegetables that you may have lying around in the fridge.  To these basic recipes, you can add any of your own cooked proteins or have the soup as a starter then have your protein with a salad. Soups are perfectly accompanied with a small bread roll, pita bread or flour tortilla and can be easily transported in a thermos flask keeping them hot or take them to work in a container to be reheated later.

Salads

If you have the time a salad is a perfect lunch or dinner option and is another excellent portable food that can be deliciously healthy and really quite filling. Salads are perfect as you can include many grains, legumes and some great tasty proteins teamed with fresh seasonal leafy greens and vegetables.  The most important aspect to a good salad is the dressing.

Wraps are the best way to enjoy a healthy lunch or dinner and they can include anything, Take advantage of wholemeal tortillas, lavash bread, and pita bread and use fillings such as boiled eggs, roast chicken, lean ham, curried eggs, poached or grilled fish, tinned tuna, salmon or sardines. You can flavour these with salsas, smashed avocado, mustards, a small amount of mayonnaise, pesto, hummus or yoghurt dips, even a squeeze of lemon.
