Yummy Stuff

What I ate on Day 6 of the “10 day eating CLEAN & LEAN Challenge“.

  •  1 slice of my homemade Cherry banana & walnut bread/cake
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • Fresh peaches and plums from our trees
  • Half a portion of grilled sardines & blitva with a glass of white wine spritzer
  • 1 cup of green beans with tomatoes topped with pumpkin oil and garlic, served with homemade humus (I will be sharing the recipe soon)
  • 1 slice of my homemade Cherry banana & walnut bread/cake

Yesterday we arrived in my city of birth, Rijeka (Croatia), for a week-long vacation. As soon as we got there, we decided to go for lunch at my favorite restaurant in the city, “Frankopan”, where we enjoyed fresh grilled sardines with a side of “blitva” (a traditional Croatian side dish, consisting of cooked chard & potatoes topped off with garlic and olive oil). I have three words: Oh so good! After filling up our tummies with this srumptuous meal, we enjoyed a nice evening dip in the Adriatic cost, and hit the bed as soon as we got home.

Tips on Eating Healthy & Staying Fit on Vacation

  • Get a short workout done early in the morning: Start off the day with a little sweat; you don’t need to get a long training session in to benefit from your workout. I find that a short-15min. high intensity workout or a brisk walk or jog does the trick.
  • Eat before you go out: Yes, I know that there are a lot of tempting foods out there, make sure you have a satisfying & healthy meal before leaving home.
  • Pack healthy snacks: Fruits, veggies, crackers, peanut butter sandwiches, & other healthy snacks will help you avoid craving junk food.
  • Share a portion at the restaurant: There is a difference between eating out and pigging out. You don’t need to over-indulge to enjoy your favorite foods, grab one portion and share it with your friends. Eat slowly & enjoy every bite, you will end up feeling light and energized instead of bloated and tired.
  • Relax & enjoy your trip: It’s ok to have a treat here and there, don’t be obsessed with your diet!

See you tomorrow 🙂
