Fat trap in metal bird

Flying 30 000 ft above sea level many of us are faced with our first healthy-eating obstacle…the plane. What to eat? What’s healthy? What’s even available with the amount of cash you can scrape together? As I page through the in-flight magazine and peruse the menu I am reminded of how hard healthy eating actually is.

Healthy Restaurant of Choice… I have always loved Tamboerswinkel – a GORGEOUS little hole in the wall in Tamboerskloof.
