6 Steps to Eat Healthily and
Deliciously on Holidays

One of the great pleasures of spending your vacation at Palace Resorts, is the multitude of culinary treats available at every turn. Whether you choose fine dining, snacks or treats, or even a late-night indulgence from 24-hour room service, your every gastronomical desire can be fulfilled. 

Fortunately, now more than ever, experiencing every tasty dish at our resorts doesn’t mean letting go of healthy eating habits or gaining weight on vacation.  

So how do you stay healthy and eat right, while still getting to taste the best of your destination? We’re glad you asked! Here are 6 simple ways Palace Resorts make sure you get the most out of culinary offerings without putting the most around your middle.

Restaurant with healthy dishes

1. Indulge in Health

Let’s not kid ourselves, you’re on vacation and are definitely entitled to a little indulgence when it comes to eating. Luckily, a decadent meal doesn’t have to mean one filled exclusively with buttery/sugary/greasy dishes. At Moon Palace Resorts and Palace Resorts, there are healthy dishes at all our dining venues, including vegetarian and vegan options. 

There are also specially designed healthy menus and events like Moon Palace Cancun’s “Organic Experience” which is held every Wednesday. Guests are taken through a culinary tour of the resort’s organic garden where they can actually see where their food is grown. The garden includes vegetables and fruits, spices, and herbs, and the tour ends with a customized seasonal lunch using those same ingredients. 

2. Have a Good Breakfast

The first meal of the day is the most important, and this is especially true while on vacation. Not only will eating a healthy breakfast fuel you for the day ahead, but starting the day off with a large, healthy breakfast can halt those midday cravings that often lead to overindulgence. 

At Moon Palace Resorts and Palace Resorts, an ideal start comes from our amazing breakfast buffets with plenty of healthy options, including a litany of fresh fruit to compliment your eggs, sausage and toast, so that you concentrate on good times and not gluttony.  

3. Burn Off the Extra Calories

If counting calories and limiting your portions is the last thing you want to do while on vacation, focus on staying active to prevent putting on unwanted pounds.

At Moon Palace Resorts and Palace Resorts, there is a plethora of exciting (and calorie-burning) activities that will keep weight gain at bay. With everything from CrossFit-style classes to a private instructor-led aqua spinning class, you can find the perfect balance of exercise and fun.

If you are the adventurous type, sign up for one of the many excursions and tours that will have you hiking up a mountain or waterfall in Jamaica or trekking through Mayan ruins and cenotes in Mexico. More activity means less guilt when indulging in decadent treats like Antonio Bachour’s delectable desserts and pastries available at all Moon Palace Resorts and Palace Resorts. 

4. Load Up on H20

It’s common to mistake thirst for hunger, making it easy to reach for a snack or a full-blown meal instead of a bottle of water. 


To keep hydrated instead of overeating, drink a glass or two of water when a food craving hits, and then wait. If you are still feeling pangs of hunger, find a good snack or meal option like almonds or some locally sourced fruit. 


5. Try a Wellness Vacation

Wellness vacations are not only one of the latest travel trends, but they're also the perfect way to enjoy a relaxing holiday without sacrificing healthy choices.


When vacationing in Mexico, you can take advantage of the wellness suites at Moon Palace Cancun which offer direct access to an exclusive Wellness Area pool, special room service menu with healthy options, access to aqua spinning bikes, a private instructor, and more. 


 6. Mind Your Portions

You don’t have to deprive yourself from eating and trying new foods while on your getaway, just remember to control the size of your portions at each meal, since portion control can make or break your healthy eating habits, especially with everything at your disposal at Moon Palace Resorts and Palace Resorts. 


When eating at one of our fine dining venues, try ordering a few small appetizer plates instead of a main entree. By ordering smaller portions, you can sample more of the delicious dishes while still eating healthy.
