I sometimes feel that people think I am this super super healthy person who would never even touch a chip or grain of white sugar -remember on twitter/instagram you only see a perfectly photographed healthy meal that one has prepared- hypothetically speaking who’s to say I haven’t scoffed 50g dark chocolate right before that post haha (never happened…hmmm).
I want to be an inspiration to anyone and everyone- to show people how to live a more balanced healthy life and to feel amazing every single day but that still doesn’t mean I’m perfect! But what is perfect anyway- in my eyes being too healthy isn’t perfect at all. Check out my post on Why For Me Being Too Healthy is Unhealthy
Holidaying for most is time for complete relaxation but people then associate that with their diet – eating unhealthy and as much as they can. Remember being healthy is a lifestyle and I can never understand why people work there butts of at the gym and do juice cleanses/various crazy diets before a holiday to then go and feel sick, unhealthy, lethargic and disgusted by themselves by eating as much as they possibly can for a week.
That being said I am not a nun on holiday, I find a balance. I LOVE and enjoy healthy foods so I’m not going to change that for a week just because I’m on “holiday” but I also like to enjoy the local favourites which might not necessarily be healthy, I love to eat ice-cream and drink wine so a holiday is a nice time to indulge a little.
Last week I was on holiday in Kefalonia for a week- so this is a little run down of what my diet was like followed by a photo diary of some meals…
I can’t get enough veggies and fruit while on holiday so I had tons with every meal.
I also ate a lot of fish because I always like to eat fish when near the sea as I know it’s nice and fresh.
I obviously ate a lot of feta salads and also A LOT of aubergines!
I drank alcohol almost every evening. I mainly drank a couple of glasses of red wine a night. One night I got very drunk on processo!
I had an ice-cream almost every day minus a couple. I love vanilla or pistachio!
I ate bread! They have the best brown multigrain bread in Kefalonia- I don’t know where it comes from but I couldn’t get enough of it.
I also took a “for travelling abroad” probiotic every day by OptiBac
