Lil Miss Greedy: Glorious food!

Whilst I was in Mexico, I ate lots of food. Enough food to put on a few kilos! Although thanks to the heat, a little bit of exercise and cutting down on portion sizes, I managed to lose weight! 

In Mexico, I stayed in an all inclusive hotel - which meant unlimited food all day! It actually is a recipe for weight gain (no pun intended)

Holidays are about having fun though, which is why I decided to eat, drink and be merry. I did set myself a limit, because gaining weight will definitely not improve my mood! 

Here are some photos of some fab foods I tried during my Mexico:

Mocktails! I limited it to one a day! They are full of sugar and lots of calories! 

I tried to make sure that half of my plate was full of salad - the rest full of 'real food'

I made sure to drink plenty of water. Did you know, that your body cannot tell the difference between hunger and thirst? If you think you are hungry, simply drink a glass of water!


Desserts - I am a sucker for them. I did end up only eating fruits in the last week of the holiday though!


Some of the food in the market

Exotic fruit - tastes delicious (sorry, forgot the name)

This is what it looks like inside :)

Mexican food - refried beans, rice, fajitas - yum :)

Fruit covered in syrup

Vegetarian sushi - delicious!

Vegetables with tofu

Fried rice - DELICIOUS!

Mixed vegetables

Our very own Japanese chef!

Cooked pineapple

Cooked banana with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce

The beautiful Italian restaurant in our resort

I tried to eat lots of vegetables during the meal
Vegetable lasagne
Yummy pizza - I could only muster 1 slice! I tried to leave a bit out - just because you have food on your plate, it doesn't mean that you have to eat it ALL!
Tiramisu
Ice cream

Can you control yourself whilst you are on holiday?

    I tend to overeat on holiday even though when abroad, I do lose my appetite but eat for the sake of eating in another country, haha! xo
