Who says you can’t eat good-for-you foods on vacation?
Walking through Central Park NYC this past weekend on my way to Wollman Rink for some ice skating, I stumbled upon this organic food cart. Boy, was that grass-fed burger great and just the protein needed to spend the next a couple of hours dodging other skaters and working on my spins (only kidding).
Many places are sprouting up offering fresh, local and organic foods on the go. With just a quick tour on the web, anyone can find healthy, affordable joints in the town or city of your next get-away. Also, scout out restaurants that offer healthy and delicious cuisine for when you’re not on the fly and crave a nicer meal. I pulled up several menus before traveling and made reservations at cafes and bistros serving organic salads, free-range chicken and wild fish.
So, after a weekend of organic baby greens, wild salmon terrine and a few special requests - olive oil instead of butter and egg-white omelettes - I enjoyed a fun and healthy weekend.
Now if I can only get my triple toe loop perfected. Yup, kidding again!
