#whatfitnessinstructorseat ON VACATION.
During the holidays, a lot of us went on vacation to some fun and exotic places. Many of you will complain that you gained some serious weight during that time and that it was unavoidable! I'd like to claim otherwise. The past two weeks, I was in Singapore.
Since I was in fitness trainings for eight days straight, it was imperative that I keep my health and nutrition in check while also taking care not to overspend (vacations do have many of us on tight budgets). A common food on Singapore streets is a combination of soft boiled eggs and toast. I got that for myself most days as it was accessible and gave me a good start to the day with a protein and carb intake. I could also start with pancakes etc. for the same price but then I wouldn't have gotten any protein.
For many lunch and dinners, I looked for 'build your own salad 🥗' type places or halal places for Singapore's famous chicken and rice. If I could not find halal, I looked for places where I could have seafood - again, my focus was protein. There were always options to pick pastas and rice-laden foods for the same price but I made sure to pick a combination of protein and carbs. Also note, that I didn't spend over $10 (SGD) on any meal. In fact I would try to eat within $20-25 for ALL three meals.
Now I know that not all places can offer you this ease. My major suggestion is to eat as much protein as possible instead of indulging on carb-heavy foods alone. This is not to say I didn't indulge! I had my fair share of chocolates and cappuccinos and cupcakes. I was walking A LOT so the carb intake was absolutely essential but so is your protein intake.
In order, the pictures show: salmon wrap, mango muesli, build your own salad, seafood laksa, peanut butter on multigrain toast, steamed chicken, soft boiled eggs.
