Last week it was my birthday and for a couple of years now I've decided to celebrate it with one of my favourite things to do, travelling! This time it was Portugal with my loved one and a couple of friends.
I have to be honest, I broke my vegan diet. In a country with such rich variety of sea food I couldn't not eat some of it, but why does a 5 day trip have to be so difficult when you are trying to eat healthily?
Hotel breakfast buffets with almost no vegetarian or vegan options, unknown cities where you can't spot a vegan friendly restaurant, indulging in sweets and alcohol and no exercising add up to the stress level while on holidays and takes our attention off the things that really matter.
My suggestion is to try to focus on the positives while enjoying your trip - love, fun, friendship, feeling adventurous and amazed of visiting a new place. We all know that holidays are not just to eat what you usually eat at home, so enjoy your time off! When you come home, go back to your healthy eating habits, relax, and try a juice detox for a couple of days. Relax while you look thorough all the pictures you took on your trip, your battery will be recharged and you will feel as good as new!Read More
