Economical Eating In Korea- Be Healthy Without Being Bankrupt

Yangyang Traditional Market

Across Korea traditional markets are still a common feature. Taking place every five days in towns and even cities, the markets give a brief insight into an older part of Korea. For the most part these markets are straightforward occasions and possibly a bit like you could imagine in the so-called olden days, drawing in all the local populace for not only business but also social reasons.

Throughout you can see people meeting and doing business, while at the same time there is a good quantity of back slapping and hearty laughing by the stalls. There are rows and rows of people, mostly old women it has to be said, selling what is clearly the excess from their small gardens, and for them it seems to be as much a chance to get out and meet people, with the added benefit of actually making some money.


November

I like November and I always have. The month just sits there, almost Christmas but still far enough away to be still kind of normal, and long enough after any summer holidays so any pining is well gone. Even though it can signal the true beginning of winter, a season I don’t shine too, with all the cold rain, wind, the leaves losing their leaves, I still look forward to November every year.

I think it’s one of those reliable months. I know it will be colder because the wind will suddenly pick up a notch and the temperature must drop a few degrees further. Despite this, I can prepare well. November is a great time for dusting out those heavy jackets, wooly jumpers, thick socks, gloves, scarves, and hats in warm, earthy colours of browns, burgundy, and dark greens to keep me cosy.


ColdStone busts your diet, jinja?!

(Jinja means really in Korean)

This morning I will have you know, I forcefully made myself head down to the high school track below my window. (I stare at it every day but never move from my rear in front of the computer)

I ran and walked the track. I did an ab workout, a few yoga poses and did my headstand in the middle of the field. It was fun. It felt good.

Then, I came inside and made my daily Green slush (I don’t have a juicer, so I blend everything… a green apple, a cucumber, a slice of peach, some ginger and bok choy)


Street market or farmers market in South Korea

Thank you for your comments and liking my blog. Well! today I will share my experience about the street market or farmers market in South Korea. Previously, I wrote about the grocery marts in South Korea which are located in each locality.

One of the things I like so much about Koreans is that they're not lazy. Every one does their best to try and make a living, no matter how meager it is. This picture prooves it.
