How is everyone doing this Wednesday? Unlike the usual WIAW’s featuring meals that I make at home, this WIAW is comin’ at ya from the warm sandy beaches in Florida. I’m out for a little vacation before heading back home to finish up the semester. There has been tons of sunshine and my camera has been snapping away with beautiful pictures. It’s a little rainy today, but compared to the weather we have been having up north, anything will do! Spring has finally spring and this means that summer is right around the corner.
The meals I am featuring today are a mix of ones I whipped up in the condo’s kitchen or ordered out when tasting some local restaurant favorites. There is balance in finding and creating nutritious and delicious meals. I did not have the luxury of the full kitchen or the many ingredients I do at home, so a lot of the meals I made remained simple. Sometimes simple is better though right?
I’ve also been getting my running on with my first half coming up next month. Running on the beach is an immediate motivator down here. I literally grab my shoes and go! Plus I even set a new mile time with my Garmin watch!
So without further adieu, here is What I Ate Wednesday: Taste of Sunshine Edition. Thanks Jenn as always for hosting!
