Honeymoon Hiatus

This past week we returned from our Caribbean honeymoon, and holiday travels. That is why you haven’t seen updates in a few weeks!

On our vacation we had a lot of unhealthy food like bacon, sweets, ice cream, and a burger! But, other than that, I still managed to eat fruits, veggies, and as healthy as is possibly normal.

When we  got to Miami near the end of our honeymoon we found an amazing vegetarian restaurant called Maoz. They only have two options: falafel or salad with  falafel on it. Then you can add loads of veggies and spicy condiments.

For those who don’t know, falafel is made from blended up chickpeas and seasonings and then formed into what looks like meatballs, and then fried or baked.

They also make fresh juice. I got kale, apple, celery, lemon–my fav blend.

Plus, we were able to walk a lot in Miami to burn off the extra calories from previous days!

But, then it was back to some home cooking at my family’s house! They had plenty of Italian cookies which I enjoyed.

They cooked a beef tenderloin for dinner, which I opted out of since I am not a big fan of red meats… I helped cook some sun-dried tomato green beans, pesto broccoli, and roasted potatoes!

Now, I am back to work getting ready for weight loss season. Thanksgiving and after New Year’s is when we see most of our patients! Nothing wrong with that. The New Year is the perfect time to reevaluate your lifestyle and health goals for the year ahead!
