What Makes a Great Vacation (WIAW)

Good morning!  Sharing more beach eats with you today thanks to Jenn’s WIAW theme: summer staples.  Jenn posted about the beautiful cherries she’s been eating – hopefully she sees my microwave cherry cobbler!

See last week’s WIAW post for beach eats & exercise.

Healthy Breakfast Staples

My family loves to go out to breakfast (especially on vacation), so I tried to balance out heavy breakfasts with light lunches, or light breakfasts on days we stayed in.  Clockwise from top left: whole grain toast with almond butter and bananas, cherries with yogurt and granola, fresh peaches with yogurt and cereal, or my go-to dining out choice: egg white veggie omelet, which seemed to always be served WITH 2 pancakes – still better than grits, the alternative. ;)

Staple healthy summer snack

Baby carrots with guac – great to have on hand for pre-dining out hunger.

Staple healthy summer dinner

Grilled Chilean sea bass with mango salsa and fresh veggies at Bonefish Grill.  So amazing, but not quite as good as Bistro 19′s sea bass.

Beach Vacation Staples

Beautiful sunrises, tropical cocktails (rum punch – amazing), the view of the beach from my lounge chair at the pool, and our stuffed refrigerator – even though we ate 95% of our meals out.

Thanks, Mom & Dad, for a great week in Myrtle.

What are your staple healthy breakfasts or healthy dinners in the summer?  Are they different than your healthy favorites in the fall or winter?
