While traveling, I learn a lot about great healthy and delicious food while traveling that I like to prepare for friends during summer dinners that is easy as uno, due, tre!. Summer is finally here and two things come to mind: stay in shape so I can take it all off at the beach/pool, and can’t wait for the Zoom summer cruise to the Mediterranean in September. I think about our cuisine aboard the SeaDream Yacht and want to share one of the favorite healthy recipes that I learned onboard.
