Hi there! Happy Wednesday!
I know I’m a littttle late to the WIAW party hosted by the lovely Jenn, but better late than never, right?
I got back from vacation not too long ago and this is the first time I’ve opened my laptop in a few days. Not going to lie, it was SO nice. It’s a little overwhelming coming home to a ton of emails and 350 unread in my Google reader! Ha. Oh well.
First of all, whenever I travel I like to come prepared for whenever I get hungry. I think I did a pretty good job
Tuna packets, almonds, walnuts, almond butter packets, quest bar, homemade protein bars, homemade turkey muffins, fruit, protein powder, stevia, etc.
When my mom and I first got there, we were hungry for lunch so we stopped at a cute little café. I was in the mood for eggs, so I ordered a salmon and caramelized onion egg white omelet – yum!! I’ve never had salmon in an omelet before but I loved it. It came with a side salad and whole wheat toast on the side. Hit the spot.
I literally had fish all weekend – apparently I was in the mood! This was one of the dinners which was swordfish and veggies. I haven’t had swordfish in forever.
If you’re ever in the keys, you HAVE to go here – it’s called Help Yourself.
I really wanted to try a fresh squeezed juice, so my mom and I ordered the fennel, green apple, cucumber, and mint. It was so refreshing!
For my meal I had the Ultimate salad which was mixed greens, sprouts, broccoli, avocado, tomato, dulse, hemp seeds, spicy pumpkin seeds, lemon tahini dressing. Deeeelicious.
My mom had the Indian Summer which was a creamy mix of chickpeas, quinoa, carrots, raisins, onion and curried cashews with Indian spices over mixed greens, house vinaigrette. This was even better in my opinion (obviously I tried it). So definitely both great choices!
Obviously the organic café was my favorite part I love finding cute little places like that. I definitely enjoyed my stay and all the food we ate!
