Well, I made it back from Florida. I’m so happy to be home and Ryan was very sweet to park and pick up my luggage for me.
I definitely missed Minnesota while I was gone. Florida is one hot and sticky state! Although most of my time was spent inside in air-conditioned meeting rooms, I did venture out for some activities like taking a ride on the famous Jungle Queen and sneaking away to the pool for a couple hours on Saturday where I got a great tan while dripping with sweat.
Remember all that granola and dried fruit I stuffed into my suitcase? It sure came in handy when the breakfast offerings were pastries, muffins, and sweet breads each morning.
I was able to enjoy a nice bowl of granola and milk which kept me going until lunch. I love the figs and apricots together with the crunchy almonds. Yum! I also toted around a bag of prunes to all my meetings to munch on. Prunes are fantastic little bites of sweetness and snacking on them helped me eat sensibly at each meal.
While I was gone, Ryan picked up some awesome veggies from a farm so I could get right back into eating well. We’ve made a few dishes using the carrots, broccolini, kohlrabi and potatoes, but Ryan took the camera to a work event so I’ll have to report back to you later.
