One of the most common questions I receive is about what I eat. I post a diner review every Saturday, but I don’t eat at a restaurant for every meal. The diner meal only shows one out of 21ish meals I eat weekly.
For the first few years of blogging, I blogged a lot more about food. Truth be told, everyone has their own opinion on what to eat and what not to eat. I took several nutrition college courses for my major of public health, but I have no credentials to give food advice. One direction I could have gone with the public health degree is getting masters in that field, but I learned quickly that I have no interest in giving people food advice.
I’m not a dietician or nutritionist, so I don’t feel comfortable giving out advice to people about nutrition.
My personal blog only shows a glimpse of my life, and if I wanted just to talk about the cake I eat weekly, you might be under the impression all I eat is cake. Similarly, if I wanted just to talk about my love for Greek salads, you might think I just eat Greek salads with salmon. While both items are staples in my diet, I do eat other things. I’m not strict with my diet, and I enjoy life, food and everything as it comes my way. I’m 5’7 and 130 pounds. Height and weight are just numbers, so it doesn’t offend me to write them on the internet. I seem to run well at this weight, so I have no interest in losing or gaining weight.
I feel like I just wrote a novel to share some of the foods I’ve been enjoying. Sharing food on the internet is a tricky subject because bloggers normally don’t have credentials to give out advice about food.
My recent vacation, however, is the perfect excuse to show you more food and different the varieties of things I enjoy. Since I was on vacation, I didn’t worry too much about eating that well. I did have vegetables, but I also enjoyed dessert. I don’t usually eat at a restaurant for 2-3 meals a day, but it was great to try new things. For those who are catching up, we went to both San Diego and Los Angeles.
During vacation, I didn’t have any food I didn’t like. Both my husband and I tried plenty of new things, but there was nothing I thought “wish we had gone somewhere else.”
Here are some of the things I tried:
As you can see, my eating was all over the place. I ate salads, but I also enjoyed dessert and different treats. My opinion of food is truly like running…your overall health does not consist of one meal or one day of food. Similarly, your overall fitness of running does not consist of one workout or race. Both are the collection of consistent habits.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let me know.
