I'm back from my mini birthday vacation. Let me tell you what happened...
Friday started with a quick breakfast for everyone before we hit the road...
I whipped up a batch of oats and added coconut milk, pumpkin butter, flax seeds and Enjoy Life's Seed and Nut mix in Mountain Mambo flavor that I received from the company.
This mix was the perfect pairing with the oats and pumpkin butter. The small pieces of chocolate were gooey and an were a extra special treat in my morning oatmeal.
I took a half day on Friday and headed to the beach. I was very anxious and excited to be by the ocean again and to see some great friends. I felt like a little kid on the car ride there though, "Are we there yet?" "How much longer". Philip was not amused. Aw, poor guy. ☺
This bag of delicious kept me occupied for a little while...
If you have never tried lentil chips before I suggest you go get some...right now! Not joking! You're still reading and you should be eating Enjoy Life's lentil chips. They are very tasty. I think these would have been perfect with hummus. MMMM hummus. I can't thank Enjoy Life enough for sharing their wonderful products with me and keeping Philip sane while I munched away.
I am going to do my recap via a picture montage. ☺ Yay picture montage!
That is salmon marinated with lemon and honey alongside it is asparagus and tomatoes lightly roasted. I made this for dinner our first night. It was a hit.
When I travel I still like to stick to my normal eating patterns. That is a picture of my post-run snack. Homemade almond butter (thanks to my awesome friend!!) and local honey. ☺
Running along the water!
Those came along for the road trip too. Some/all may have been consumed between Philip and I ☺
That beauty was parked outside a gas we stopped at and had 50's music blaring from it. How fitting! ☺
MMM ☺ Egg white omelet with asparagus, tomatoes and Swiss cheese with a side of french fries. Those stayed on the plate though. It didn't feel right to eat french fries for breakfast....
I could get used to seeing these on morning runs. Sighs...
I had a nice relaxing weekend, soaked up some vitamin D, caught up with old friends and rang in another year!
Do you stick to your normal eating patterns on vacation or do you indulge?
Do you exercise in the normal or the afternoon?
While vacationing do you still exercise?
What did you do for your last birthday?
