Staying slender in Croatia
You might think of heavy food when you think of Croatia, but natives have a few neat, slenderizing tricks up their sleeves, especially when it comes to the midday meal, Croatia’s largest of the day. “We have lots of fish, soup, and salad in our diet. Salads are our main, lunchtime side dish, and something simple as tomatoes, cucumbers, and onions, marinated in vegetable oil, and a bit of vinegar, will be enough to minimize our intake of other foods. Same goes with soup. Instead of having a glass of water before a meal, we have a bowl of soup. This is part of the secret of how Europeans stay lean and skinny. It’s a habit we pick up from birth, and carry through our lives, loading up on soup and salads whenever possible,” says Croatian tech company founder, Nenad Ćuk.
