Man, vacations are fun! But you can easily start to get off your normal routine and away from good nutrition while you are out and about. When I first started CrossFit and getting into ancestral health and nutrition, I was very strict about what I ate. I avoided certain foods that I knew caused problems for me or that I knew were not "healthy". After improving my health and leaning out and a few years of being strict, I realized that I could afford to go off my nutrition plan once in awhile in order to have the full experience when traveling, or simply when I wanted to.
This weekend Jared and I were in Chicago. We did a lot of walking around and sightseeing, and we love to experience the places we visit through the food and drink they are known for. We made sure to try Chicago deep dish pizza and a Chicago style polish sausage. We stopped at an old school deli for a pastrami sandwich and an authentic Italian steakhouse. We also ate some really nice Japanese cuisine and visited a restaurant owned by a Top Chef winner. Today as we traveled back home, we made "healthier" choices to start to get back into our groove.
All this being said that I believe you can enjoy life's pleasures if you are focused on maintaining a healthy relationship with food most of the time! And if it's your birthday, you certainly get to eat dessert :)
