One of the simple pleasures of my naturist holidays is that I can roll out of bed, wander down the steps of the apartment and buy fresh bread fro breakfast from the little van that goes around the area. Later in the day, it’s a bit of a walk to the supermarket where naturism is possible inside, and pick up a few provisions for the day ahead.
We like to eat healthily all the time, but on holiday we eat healthily and simply. I don’t do any cooking, and instead we will buy bread, cheese, fresh tomatoes, fresh sardines, drizzle a lot of it in olive oil and try to replicate the Mediterranean diet.
Just a few quick and easy and healthy recipes that would really fit well in Ella’s idea of Mediterranean diet, and don’t involve (much) cooking, allowing her to concentrate on her holiday.
First up is mayo-free avocado egg salad.
Quick, simple and nutritious. Apart from boiling a couple of eggs, Ella isn’t going to be spending a lot of time in the kitchen. In fact, she only needs to tell husband Jim to boil the eggs while she works on her tan and it’s really just a case of chopping things up and mixing them together. This is an absolute favourite of mine.

Again, very quick, simple, nutritious and delicious.
I’m not sure how popular these types of blog posting these will be, it’s a naturist blog and clearly many visit for the naturism in its quite narrow sense, but for me naturism goes away beyond just taking your clothes off. It embraces healthy eating, taking care of the environment, regular exercise and other elements of life that we’ll embrace if people seem to like the sort of posts I’ll write.
There’s lots of great Mediterranean styled dishes to show you, but I won’t labor the point for now.
Instead I’ll conclude with the photo above, showing a woman managing to combine semi nudity (I imagine padded cycling shorts make very good sense on a thin saddle!) and excercise.
While sitting in my SL kitchen, enjoying my avocado egg salad (on wholemeal bread), it occurred to me that I wasn’t sure if there was anywhere available to do mountain biking (semi nude or otherwise) in Second Life. So I checked.
Yes, there are mountain bike rides in SL. And like the woman in the photo above, I’ve kept my padded cycling shorts on 😉
OK, folks, let’s see how my vision of naturism, more like a casual approach to clothing where it makes sense, grabs some of you! And if you’ve got a few moments, try out one or both of the recipes I’ve offered.
