Day Of Food – Spain

posted by: Emma

We’ve tried to document a typical day’s food intake for two hungry cyclists in Spain. Note we normally wouldn’t have two dinners but this day began with a free camp outside Biescas and ended with an offer of a comfortable bed in Gerbe.


Bread, Jam, Chocolate croissants, ham and cheese pastry (we found an awesome bakery).

Really hot spicy risotto with salami and vegetables and bread outside Gerbe.

2nd Dinner

Mushroom soup, chickpea and spinach stew, Spanish tortilla and bread, strawberries, chocolate croissants and cream. Not wanting to seem too strange, we didn’t photograph dinner number two, but it was lovely.

  • Dear Jus & Emma, Love your message about the food. Just wondering…… are you, by any chance,in denial about an unacknowledged addiction to chocolate croissants or awesome pastries from awesome bakeries? I’ve got the same addiction, especially to the ones filled with creme brulee… Mum xxx

  • This is the kind of fuel you need to climb the hills in the Pyrenees!

  • Wow pack it in! I can totally understand the volume intake and we found the same on our short trip in Portugal. I found cycling on an empty stomach puts you into a dull mong that makes you ignore the view until you find some food!

  • Based on the large volume of comments about this post expect more regular posts about food soon.

    Right now Im drinking a Spanish hot chocolate (just melted chocolate basically) and awaiting a lunch appointment with a friendly Australian guy we just met in Olot, so food still featuring heavily in daily activities.

  • I’ve not yet bothered to read this food diary. I’m writing this so it can’t be claimed that I’ve not written anything.

    Most of this journey up to now seems to be standard fare, I am waiting until you discover either a dead body/suitcase full of euros/a puncture or loose mudguard.

  • There seem to be a lot of comments, so bandwagon on.

    ps. Last night I had scallops and snapper with a feijoa salsa.
    (all made by my own fare hand).
