I’m 66 and my wife is 68. At this age we have scaled down our food consumption considerably. It’s amazing how we have escalated down our meals as years passed by.
This picture portrays a moderate lunch for us. It consists of fried fish (tilapia) with bread crumbs, smashed fried green plantains (patacones) covered with American cheese and scrambled eggs. In the background you will notice the ubiquitous cup of Chinese tea. We only drink coffee early in the morning; it’s too acid and not good for our reflux problem. Both of us suffer from the same health ailment.
We are barely eating red meats as recommended by our physician. Instead of red meats we eat chicken, turkey or fish. Tilapia and corvina (commonly called croakers or drums) are our preferred fishes. Sometimes when our budget is generous, we include shrimp in our meals. Shrimp salads are a specialty of the house. Good Day.
