One question I often get is “what is the food like in Kenya?” Check it…
Breakfast is served from 7:15-9:15. I usually eat breakfast at 7:30 but a sometimes I will run early and eat at 8:45.
Oatmeal, bread, bananas and eggs (hard boiled, fried or omelette) are the staples with either crepes, pancakes or french toast. The crepes, pancakes and french toast are pretty damn good and have been known to ruin people’s morning sessions who indulge too much. Some sort of pineapple drink and tea latte are also served.
I put peanut butter and cinnamon in my oatmeal and honey on my pancakes (one eaten already).

Lunch starts at 12:30 and usually has soup and bread, as well as pasta or rice with some type of sauce which includes beans, lentils, veggies and/or meat. There is also salad served. There is a beetroot and pineapple salad which doesn’t sound like a great combo but it’s actually one of the favourites.
On this day we had pasta with chicken carbonara sauce, squash soup, rolls and the beetroot pineapple salad mentioned above.
At dinner we see some traditional Kenyan food as Ugali (cornmeal cooked to a doughy consistency) and sukuma wiki (sauteed kale) are always served. Along with those two staples there is always meat (chicken, beef ,fish and/or lamb), pasta, rice or potatoes. Sometimes chapati is served which is a Kenyan version of roti, and very delicious. On Thursday we have Pizza which goes over quite well. Desert is usually watermelon, orange slices or fruit salad. Every 10 days or so we get cake, it goes fast!
Here we see Ugali, green beans and carrots, sukuma wiki, chicken and potatoes. Dig in!
Look what I saw on the Rotterdam Marathon website: The international field of elite athletes taking part in the ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam will also be announced shortly…
