One thing I did to help the jet lag was to eat lots of fruit and make sure I got plenty of rest. My sleeping was definitely on track, and in my quest to eat lightly, I discovered a few fruit stands on the street surrounding my hotel in Shanghai. By the end of my 10 day visit, I was a regular. And I lost 2kg! (Which is almost 5lbs.!)
One of my favorite treats at the fruit stand was the amazing selection of cheap tropical fruit. Litchis in particular were in season and delicious. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them on stems, tied up in an adorable little bouquet!
I was told this is very common there, but I'd never seen litchis on stems here in the U.S. And what can I say, I guess I'm easily impressed.
I'm off to make dinner for my Meatless Monday post tomorrow and to catch up on all of your lovely blogs while resting in my cozy pants. Hope you all had a great weekend!
