When I'm away from home the thing I miss the most is not my own bed as it is for most people. I miss my own kitchen.
First thing I did back in Shanghai was a smaller mission to the veggie market, to the fruit lady and lastly to the international supermarket (lastly because I'm not to crazy about the selection) in order to fill up our kitchen with fresh healthy yumminess.
After hiking & living in the exotic and rural Xishuangbanna for one week I was craaaaaving my homemade yoghurt, my homemade salads and my homemade healthy snacks! I truly believe in living everyday life with pure healthy habits and then take vacations or even weekends with a more relaxed attitude: Try new things when traveling (for example be living of rice noodles and snacks in Yunnan's mountains) and enjoy drinks, wine, dessert when going out in the city. I think they call it the 80-20 rule diet or similar. Not sure. I lost the overview of the diet-jungle. Instead I focus on that what I do and eat every day is good for me in both the short and the long run.
I was reading a really good quote on a fitness blog the other day. It said that if you want to change your diet into the better a really good way to do it is to stop focusing on what NOT TO EAT and instead focus on WHAT TO EAT in order to fill you body & mind with nutrition, vitamins, life, color, happiness, raw energy, naturalness, hydration and love (ok I added a bit to that quote....). I find that this way of switching your focus is a really good way to turn healthy eating into a daily habit.
