Where do You Find Food on the Camino?
What is available, when is it available, and how much does it all cost?
On the first day of my first Camino walk, I walked 17 kilometers powered only by pastries. Why? Because I had no idea where and, more importantly, when to find food in Spain.
Eating on the Camino can be an exciting adventure and a culinary journey in and of itself. Some days you will wade through a gourmet extravaganza provided by some very creative kitchens. Other days you will find yourself in a culinary wasteland, where the only goals are to stave off hunger and find some basic nutrition.
Either way, you won’t go hungry.
You may have heard that the Spanish diet is heavily oriented towards meat and bread. Where does that leave the vegan and vegetarian eaters? And what if you require a gluten free diet? Well, good news, things have been evolving in Spain, and there are now plenty of food options for everyone. You do have to work for it some, but it is completely doable. And I will include some tips for all of you in this episode of the “YOU on the Camino de Santiago” podcast.
