Gwyneth Paltrow Indulges in Fried Chicken and Southern Food in Nashville

Do You Indulge When You're on Vacation?

For the last few months, Gwyneth Paltrow has been in Nashville while filming her role in Love Don't Let Me Down. And as she shares in her lastest GOOP newsletter, she's fallen in love with everything about the city: its people, music venues, and even its fried chicken! Most of what I've heard about Gwyneth's lifestyle strikes me as being uber-healthy — she's gone raw before, meditates, and  always seems to be detoxing or on a cleanse. It was actually kind of refreshing to hear that while in Nashville she sampled Southern classics like fried chicken, collard greens, and sweet potato fries — foods she called "a traditional Southern attack."

Since I eat healthy while at home, I do give myself freedom to try new foods when on vacation — especially if it's a local dish that can't be missed. How about you . . .

It also depends on where I'm on vacation. I'm not going to eat like total crap, but I'm not going to deny myself gelato in Italy because it's not part of my diet. However, I don't need deep dish pizza every time I go on a three day weekend to Chicago. I can get it anywhere really.

I do but I shouldn't. I always get miserable when I get on the scale and see the damage....I really try to moderate the portions but always give in....Guilty!!

I eat whatever I want in moderation, whether on vacation or not. I am not in to sweets or fried foods too much, so whenever I do eat them it is not a big deal.

I indulge sometimes, but usually when I'm on vacation I use it as an opportunity to try all sorts of local healthy things, like fresh tropical fruits and veggies or uber-fresh seafood. That way I feel like I'm doing something good for myself and I still am indulging in something I don't normally eat at home.

I might....but rarely. I have the potential to get really bad intestinal issues if I eat a really wrong food or drink something like pop while away. I would rather feel good than eat something that tastes good the a bit. :shrug:

I do indulge on vacation, but I also do it all the time at home. I guess that's okay because my definition of indulge is to really listen to what my body craves, and if that's a piece of cake then that's okay as long as 95% of the time those cravings are healthy foods and I keep up with my active lifestyle.
