Balance is Key: Heavy Lunch, Walk it Off, Then Light on the Dinner.

spinach salad with cheese patties and cherry tomatoes on olive oilYesterday I shared about the importance of starting each day with a healthy and hearty breakfast, even while on holiday.  It might seem tempting to “cheat” on your diet while travelling, but you will feel better and enjoy your travels more when you fuel your body properly.

To that end, I wanted to share with you a few of the tasty meals I have been enjoying so far, like the spinach salad with cheese patties and cherry tomatoes in olive oil and vinegar that you see me enjoying to the left.  Below are highlights from a few of other favorites.  The pasta dish is not exactly healthy, but that is why I had it for lunch instead.  Then I walked it all off for the next 3 hours and dinner was on the lighter side before a night on the town sipping on cocktails…

On some days I will spurge by having a glass of wine with lunch or just a refreshing yogurt with berries dessert after my salad.

Not exactly healthy, but I had to try the homemade pasta with olive oil and parmesan and arugula on top, paired with some chilled wine.

One evening's dinner featured grilled seafood on bed of steamed spinach - I wish you could try a bite!
