back from Costa Rica: can you eat well there?

I am back from Costa Rica.   It was supposed to be a 7-day trip, using Delta buddy passes given to me (very inexpensively) by a friend.   Unfortunately at the end of our trip, we spent THREE DAYS in the airport trying unsuccessfully to get out of Costa Rica until I finally bought both […]

Eating right while traveling internationally . . . part 2

You can enjoy eating on a cruise without gaining 10 lbs.   Don’t think I’m on my high horse here, because if I told you I didn’t indulge on the cruise, I’d be lying.   If I said I didn’t eat gelato for dessert occasionally (it was an Italian cruise line), you’d write me off […]

eating right on vacation . . . part I

Nobody wants to slow down to eat, so we eat in line at Universal Studios.   My DH developed a new hobby: taking photos of us eating whole plant foods, with people in the photo eating more typical amusement-park, processed food.   Our children found this new hobby MUCH less amusing than we did.   […]
