Argentina had some slim pickin’s when it came to grocery shopping. But I have to say this was one of the more tasty meals I was able to scrounge up.

Pasta and beans are cheap and cook up quickly. We’ve been eating quite a bit of these things while traveling because time and money are of essence. David made fun of our meals last night, saying that all we eat is: grain and veg, pasta and veg, bread and veg. However, we do make room for eggs, cheese and pork quite a bit.

The tuna adds some high quality, lean protein while the beans and veggies lend some great fiber. Whole wheat pasta is virtually non existent in Argentina or I would have used it. Although it’s been really nice tasting the local culture’s foods, it’s also quite nice to have a healthier meal native to my own country.

    Hi Ashley:

    That sounds good, however, where is the breakdown of the nutritional value and how many servings is this or at least what is the size of a serving?

      My time blogging while traveling is pretty limited, so sometimes I can’t include the nutrition information. A serving size is about 1.5 cups.
