How would one describe an ideal lifestyle? Well, in my opinion, living along the Spanish Mediterranean coast, and to be more specific, living in Cambrils comes remarkably close to perfection. If you would you like to know why, let me introduce you to my favorite 5 ingredients for a great quality of life.
Being surrounded by this beautiful blue sea can make anyone feel that they have found their happy place.
Whether you stroll, cycle, jog, relax on the beach, or take a long walk, this beautiful sight cannot make you indifferent. Nothing feels better than taking a deep breath to feel the scents of salt and marine freshness.
Truly, the best therapy for your mind, body and soul.
My grandmother used to say: ” Como en España no se come ni se vive en ningún sitio”, which translates into ” There is no better place to live or eat like Spain”. The truth is my dear grandma never travelled abroad … but after living in several countries and travelling to many more, I will admit that Spanish food is pretty darned good!
According to the Bloomberg Healthiest Country Index, Spain is the healthiest country in the World https://www.spain.info/en/discover-spain/mediterranean-diet-healthiest-country-world-spain/. Our Mediterranean diet is famous all around, as well as its proven benefits in our health, mainly due to fresh ingredients and the quality of the produce that is used.
Cambrils offers an incredible variety of restaurants. The combination of fresh agricultural products and daily-caught fish from the local port is a hallmark of Mediterranean cuisine, known for its emphasis on high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
Friends and family are a big deal in Spain. We’re all about sharing moments, especially outdoors. Whether it’s grabbing a bite in a restaurant or cooking up at home, meals are a big deal when the gang’s around. And guess what? Last-minute hangouts are practically a tradition -true to be told, I am an expert!, so spontaneity could be our middle name. There’s just something special about those impromptu get-togethers that add an extra sprinkle of joy to our everyday lives.
Spain is famous for its sunny skies and vibrant light, and Cambrils takes it up a notch with a microclimate that lets you make the most of every single day. You’ll only find a handful of days throughout the year when the sky isn’t rocking that perfect shade of blue. Spain becomes a natural haven for Vitamin D production. This sunshine vitamin isn’t just about strong bones; it’s your mood booster, immune system’s best friend, and the secret ingredient to that radiant Spanish glow. So, next time you’re soaking up the rays on a Spanish beach, know that you’re not just topping up your tan but also loading up on the sunshine vitamin for a healthier, happier you. 🌞https://selecthealth.org/blog/2020/07/7-health-benefits-of-sunlight
