This past week my family and I went to Destin, Florida for a beach getaway. Staying Paleo on the trip was pretty easy, since we were staying at a cottage with a full kitchen. We stocked up on plenty of food to cook for breakfast and dinner and some fruits and nuts for the beach. As for working out, we stayed active on the trip by walking, going to the gym, and riding bikes.
Remember: When you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail! This quote comes into my everyday life, but it is also extremely important when traveling. When on vacation many people like to let loose mentally, but there’s no reason to stray from your healthy lifestyle. There’s a reason I call it the Paleo Lifestyle, not diet. When you have a “lifestyle” mentality you feel less deprived.
Saturday morning felt weird without a trip to the Farmer’s Market, so Dad and I decided to go visit the 30A Farmer’s Market and see what they had to offer. We decided to buy a Small Sprouting Kit from the Moonlight Micro Farm (top left picture) stand. We plan on throwing these sprouts onto salads and such! Dad and I enjoyed trying raw milk for the first time (top right picture) and bought some raw heavy cream to take home for coffee! I was especially excited to meet Veronica, the creator of Veronica’s Health Crunch. This crunch is absolutely delicious and pretty darn paleo! It’s just nuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and a bit of honey. It’s a guilt-free crunch and MUCH better for you than any store-bought trail mix.
For Father’s Day, we went to my dad’s friend’s house in Seaside. Dad wanted to spend Father’s Day at the beach and with good friends and food. We started with sausage as an appetizer, and the main dish was salad, sweet potatoes, green bean bundles, and beef tenderloin! To say the least, it was a Paleo feast.
