Tuck and roll: ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ Jumping off the wagon

Last evening in Swaziland. Tomorrow we make our way to South Africa and the safari at Sabi Sands. We’re going to a private game reserve called Inyati. Apparently it’s #kindofabigdeal I feel so incredibly fortunate to be able to share this experience with my Mom. This trip has already been an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so incredibly thankful. #attitudeofgratitude #qualitytimewithmom #eatingmywaythroughafrica Last evening in Swaziland. Tomorrow we make our way to South Africa and the safari at Sabi Sands. We’re going to a private game reserve called Inyati. Apparently it’s #kindofabigdeal I feel so incredibly fortunate to be able to share this experience with my Mom. This trip has already been an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so incredibly thankful. #attitudeofgratitude #qualitytimewithmom #eatingmywaythroughafrica About the eating. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I was a bit reticent at first but I have decided to relax and be completely flexible (read: eat anything). I was maintaining a pretty strict regime for two weeks (low carb ketogenic) on this trip but I had to cave. We had a traditional meal from Ghana that was prepared for us. I was planning things out “Okay, I’ll just have meat and veggies with some olive oil.” I was offered this very traditional juice. I declined it at first “No thank you, I don’t drink juice”. And then I quickly realized how silly I was being when I saw the reaction and expression on their face. In many cultures, the act of preparing traditional foods and sharing a meal together is an important act of giving. To refuse their offer could be offensive. I’m in Swaziland. I need to soak up every aspect of this culture that I can and be open minded. I have two weeks left on this trip. I’m just going to embrace the experience, try it all and enjoy the or sent moment. I can be rigid with my nutrition and be as weird as I want with my diet in a couple weeks when I home. So, this also means I’m back to drinking wine. Which I rather enjoy. Bit of a food vacay for the last two weeks. ๐Ÿ™Š
