How I eat when I’m on holiday

Hi lovelies! That’s me back in Glasgow but I’ll still be posting about my trip to Nice as I love to share my travels with you.

On the Tuesday it was so grey! I took a break from my runs and we spent the morning taking it easy. My sister had some schoolwork to do and I was so happy just being there in their company. Despite that I graduated months ago, it still feels a bit weird when others have to study I don’t, not quite used to the yet.

We went to Casino (a grocery store chain) the day before and I found organic almond milk in the organic section. There were so many non-dairy milks to choose from and it made me really happy that this is slowly becoming more available here in Nice as well. So I was really excited when I had porridge the next day to have some milk with it. It’s just not the same without it.

In the afternoon we headed to Jean Medicine (the shopping street in town) to look in some shops. I was looking for a pair of light beige trousers (mine are dying) but the hunt was unsuccessful. Instead Sarah who didn’t even want to go bought loads of stuff! The irony haha.

When we felt like we’d browsed enough shops we decided to look for a crêpe place (pancake day and all). The last time I had a crêpe was the last time I was in Nice which was for my birthday in August 2015. So yeah a while ago. It took us forever to find a place that was actually open in the old town but eventually we got lucky. They put so much dark chocolate in mine I actually ended scraping it all off, major sugar rush! I couldn’t handle it. It was good but would’ve preferred to share one 😛

I am quite relaxed with my eating habits when I’m on holiday. At home I cook mainly veggie and vegan food whilst when I’m eating out or on holiday I do eat fish, depending on what is available and what takes my fancy. I love seafood and it’s something I like to treat myself to once in a while. I know it’s not sustainable to eat loads of fish either but I do my best and that’s all I can do. I don’t want it to be difficult to eat or find food when I’m out and about so I’m flexible whilst at home I rarely cook fish and I can’t remember the last time I cooked meat (it’s not really something I’m tempted to eat and I haven’t for months).

When it comes to more indulgent treats like croissants and desserts when I’m travelling I eat them when I feel like it. I do love sweet treats once in awhile and when I’m holiday I eat more of these things than I do at home. As you’ve noticed I had a couple of desserts and sweet treats during my trip. I also had a freshly baked croissant after my breakfast four out of the five breakfasts whilst I was there, they’re just too good and no croissants could ever compare to the real thing in France. So had to make the most of it. I try to balance it out with eating lots of delicious fruit and vegetables for my other meals so I don’t go overboard. How do you view this? What do you guys do when you’re holiday?

Sorry the only photos from this day was of food. The weather was so grey that I didn’t feel to inspired to take anymore photos.
