Christmas is just around the corner and Barcelona is definitely preparing to get ready for the happiest season of the year.

Since the beginning of November, everyday new Christmas lights have been put on the streets to bring the festive atmosphere to the city. Even by walking through the smaller streets in Barceloneta or Raval area gives you already the Christmas feeling a month before. But not only do the streets become brighter, also the food selection get wider. Barcelona has many various kitchens to offer. So which one are the most traditional Catalonian dishes during the winter months..

As Barcelona is on the Mediterranean coast, obviously the seafood dishes are important part of Christmas food. Usually the Christmas dinner starts with salmon or prawn dish, which is followed by a hot bowl of homemade soup. The main meal consists traditionally of roast lamb and seafood, either cod or shellfish.
During the colder winter months soup is quite common dish for dinner time. The most famous one is sopa de galets which contains meat, vegetables and pasta.

Spain is a well-known chestnut exporter, therefore you cant miss every autumn-winter the roasted chestnut sellers on the streets. If you want to make it yourself then Boqueria market at La Ramblas is good place to get these fresh and for a good price. For roasting you just need oven, knife and water to be able to prepare chestnuts yourself at home.

The most popular dessert in Christmas time is turron. It is made of roasted almonds, honey and eggs. This sweet, of Arabic origin, can be found in the bigger supermarkets with different flavours. The best value you would find is probably in some smaller family stores on the side street, which are generally run by people from Middle-East.

Both polvorones and marzipans are types of sweets that are more in demand during the Christmas period. Polvorones are rich, crumbly cookies which mainly consist of almonds. As well as many other sweets`, todays gourmet varieties of marzipans are also mainly made of sugar and almonds, or in cheaper options rice flour or potato starch.

A very common dessert amongst Catalan people is prune crema. It is made of red wine, dried prunes, caster sugar, double cream and egg yolks. People use it often together with fruit or some crispy topping, which makes it even tastier.

To experience the taste of Mediterranean food, Barcelona is certainly one of those great cities that are worth to visit during Christmas and New Years period.
If you are looking for a nice budget place to stay then there is good selection of rental accommodation. One of the options could be BCN Loft, which offers cheap rooms in shared apartments. BCN Loft apartments are located all over Barcelonas city centre, so you are always close by to all the main attractions and best restaurants.
So theres nothing more left to say than Buen provecho!

Fast Food Vs Home Cooking

bedugul-tour-pakage-in-bali

Today the society is very tired as well as overworked. Everyone is extremely busy and is constantly running a fast pace of life everyday. Regardless of the fact, whether their running to meet the hectic lifestyle and pace of life is precious or not, they run to meet the need effectively. To bring to a normal routine, you need to follow some cheap meal ideas so that you catch up some time to stretch and also save your hard earned money. You can provide a nutritious as well as wholesome dinner even with limited ideas and money, provided you plan and get the ingredients well on time.

The fast food makers have caught the running spree and have coaxed people into eating fast food. As people lack time, they just rush to the fast food and make themselves comfortable. The very idea of returning home after a tiring day or work and then later on cooking for the entire family is not done with a happy note and you are inclined to look on for some fast food. Though, you know it is not good for health, you ignore as they are readymade and you need not spend your good time in the hot kitchen. Moreover, you have to prepare for the coming day as well as help your children with homework, do the laundry work and clean the mess.

It is normally the parents who run in the aim of avoiding the hassles of running to grocery shopping, cleaning before and after dinner and cooking. They prefer to go home as well as relax so that they wake up and do them all over again. The main difficulty is that eating fast food inevitably causes obesity and is no way a healthy choice to be considered as the complete meal or food. There are cheap meal ideas that take very little time in preparation and coming home to eat a good meal without much expense itself makes the meal more delicious.

The cheap meal idea consists of meat, pasta, vegetable and rice in one dish. A quick stir with slices of meat or beef is good and chicken can also go good, add soy sauce and cook completely. Add and stir few vegetables to the same mix with a cup of water. The meat and vegetables get cooked with the rice. This makes a cheap meal idea and can be eaten contentedly as it has everything to make it an opulent and nutritious meal. You can also use macaroni as well as cheese and add some flavor with tomato sauce and make the food tastier. This will save your money and keep you in good health. The fast food is convenient food for one or two days, but is not recommended as daily food as it will cause your health.

Finding a Choice Hotel for you Romantic Getaway

leisure

Whether traveling on a honeymoon, an anniversary or just a romantic rendezvous, your resort or hotel will be an important part of the entire experience. Your hotel stay should be comfortable, quiet and conducive to romance. A beachfront villa or room with a view of the water is perfect for your couples retreat.

Your hotel booking will offer you many options in romance. Online booking sites can help you find the most romantic hotel within your budget. Consider an adults-only facility. The pool will be clean and the hotel will be quiet. The atmosphere of an adult-only hotel is different from your average choice hotel. You will enjoy a mature and more relaxed vacation.

Online booking also allows you to find certain amenities to enjoy with that special someone. A couples massage is a great way to unwind together. When doing your hotel booking, ensure that your choice hotel has a spa that offers this service. Hot springs can be another way to spend some quality time together.

When making your hotel booking, be sure to compare all of the options available at nearby resorts in the area. Some may offer private beachfront dinners, breakfast in bed, snorkeling or sailing. Your choice hotel should be able to offer some activities specifically for couples. If you tell them that it is a special occasion, you can often get a room upgrade or some perks. Either contact the hotel or your online booking agent to ensure that the hotel knows that its your honeymoon or anniversary well ahead of time. You might end up with a private hot tub, sparkling wine or a beach view without paying a penny more.

Your choice hotel should have a great reputation. Online booking allows you to review what other customers have said about the hotel. Read the most recent opinions from other travelers to get a good idea of whether the hotel is right for you. Before doing your hotel booking, pay close attention to the hotels reputation for service, cleanliness and food.

Food is often an important factor when doing a hotel booking. A choice hotel will have a variety of food options for seafood lovers, vegetarians and even ethnic foods. If the hotel that you choose does not have the type of food that you like or only offers a limited selection, your experience will not be as great as it could be with the right choice in hotels.

Your online booking site might have all of this information, but if not, it is prudent to do some investigating beforehand. Contact the hotel directly, contact an agent at from the hotel booking site or get a recommendation from a friend who has stayed in the area.

Doing a bit of research beforehand will ensure that your vacation is memorable for all of the right reasons. Online booking is an easy way to check that your choice hotel fits in with your vision of a romantic getaway.

Can Energy Drinks Improve Mental Performance

young-couple-mtn-top

The number of people seeking to make use of the various energy drinks has been on the rise in the recent past. It is towards feeding this demand that numerous energy drink varieties have come up. One of the best ways to know what is in demand and what is not in demand today is by having a look at Internet search statistics. And a peek at those statistics immediately reveals that the energy-drinks are amongst the most widely sought after products online, with searches around them running into tens of millions every month.

The people who make use of the energy-drinks do so in search of a number of things. Some do so in search of the basic (physical or psychological) energizing effect associated with the drinks. Other do so in search of the weight loss promise, with which many of these drinks nowadays come. Other do so in search of skin rejuvenation, immunity boosting and other ‘value added’ benefits associated with the drinks, especially those that are based on natural herbal extracts. Still, others (and this is a very fast growing group), make use of the energy drinks in search of mental-performance enhancement which has been linked to the drinks.

In today’s world, when most work is done mentally rather than physically, it is understandable that people would very enthusiastically embrace anything that promises to help them improve their mental performance.

Now what we are interested in here, is establishing just how the energy-drinks work, in bringing about the mental-performance improvement.

As it turns out, there are at least a couple of easily identifiable mechanisms through which the drinks can help in mental-performance improvement.

The first one is where the simple energizing effect of the drinks leads to improved mental performance. After all, don’t we all know that our mental performance tends to be at its best when our physical energy levels are optimal? And don’t we all agree that our mental performance tends to be hindered when our physiological energy levels are low? From such a background, it wouldn’t be rocket science to see the relationship between the enhanced energy levels brought about the energy-drinks and mental-performance improvement.

The second mechanism through which the energy-drinks can help in mental performance improvement is that of relieving their users of psychological stress. It is a well known fact that the use of these drinks has a relaxing effect on the body and the mind. We also know that psychological stress is one of greatest hindrances to optimal mental performance. So inasmuch as the energy drinks can relieve the psychological stress, they would go a long way towards improving mental-performance.

What is worth keeping in mind all along, though, is the fact that the mental-performance improvement brought about these energy drinks is something that has been scientifically established in controlled studies. It is not a matter of hearsay.

Finally, A Healthy Alternative To Energy Drinks Such As Red Bull

we-love-travel

The new soft drinks of the world are energy drinks and most of them are not full of vitamins and minerals that will last all day. However, Vemma has crammed the new Verve! into one can full of the healthy vitamins and minerals with the natural sugar. Taste so, good that you will want to drink more than one and that’s ok. Now you won’t have to crash hard like the other energy drinks.

Stayed up all night long cramming for that exam and you just don’t’ think that your going to make it through that exam today, guess what you will. The new Verve will be able to help you get through that exam and you will still have the energy to go out tonight with your friends.

Explosion of flavor bursting in your mouth that is what the Verve would be. Now you will be able to achieve whatever you need to do today. We have created an energy drink like no other and had an amazing time do it.

Understanding the energy drink market isn’t about hiding in bushes with a periscope and a notepad (although we enjoyed that too), it entails hours of mundane research. So, over the last several months, we did the homework and sampled what seems like thousands of energy drinks (we haven’t slept since), scoured the streets, and snatched any information we thought you should know about to kick start your Vemma with a product that really packs a kick!

In what some are calling the “new soft drinks of the world,” energy drinks have recently become a phenomenon of sorts. The Verve! launch will be groundbreaking because it will introduce the world’s first energy drink crammed full of healthy stuff like vitamins, minerals and natural sugars and, best of all, it still actually tastes good. Kind of a tropical fruit flavor patterned after the very popular and exotic mangosteen fruit from Southeast Asia.

Fizzy drinks with vitamins and minerals are certainly have an energetic pop to them. The newest energy drink to hit the market that has more than a pop to it includes the mangosteen fruit and many other organic ingredients.

Just flat run down and dragging, now you don’t have to be that way. We have your back here at Vemma and we have the newest greatest thing in the energy drinks. Fully insanely good for you with all the vitamins full of insanely great tasting exotic mangosteen
