I love this. I just built my Whole 30 Dream Vacation in my mind and I felt like I was almost there. Since a Whole 30 vacation is not about traveling to get local foods (like pasta from Italy, Navajo tacos from the Midwest USA, or pizza/bagels/cheesecake from NYC), I am focusing my vacation on other factors. It's strange--usually one of the first things I think of when planning a vacation is food, and I plan what restaurants I want to visit. But, with this exercise, I am focusing on other things besides food. How refreshing!
Where I would go: a resort on a beautiful beach, either in the Virgin Islands or Hawaii, with my husband
What I would eat:
--Breakfast would be a huge omelet with lots of veggies and ghee with a side of roasted butternut squash or sweet potato with crio Bru to drink, and possibly some fresh fruit
--Then after about 1-2 hours, I would go on a long run
--I may or may not have a post-WO snack...if I did, it would be lean protein and a starchy veggie
--Lunch would be a protein-packed salad with either salmon, chicken, steak, or some other protein and lots of fresh veggies with 1/2 an avocado and a serving of walnuts with olive oil and balsamic vinegar
--Dinner would be either grilled chicken or fish or a steak with sautéed and perfectly seasoned veggies on the side
--And of course all of this would be cooked for me! Breakfast would be served to my room, where I can eat on the balcony, overlooking the ocean. Lunch would either be served to me on a lounge chair on the beach or at a cafe bistro restaurant, and dinner would be at a nice date night style restaurant where my husband and I can have a romantic date.
What I would focus on:
--Stress Management: I would sleep until I woke up naturally, I would lounge on the beach or by the pool, I would take a nap whenever I pleased, and I would not worry about anything.
--Exercise: I would go on a long run after breakfast, and participate in yoga classes by the beach because of course they would have yoga on the beach in my dreams.
--Most importantly, Fun & time with my husband: we would spend quite a large amount of time with each other during the day, but occasionally do our own thing. We would, however, always be together for a romantic date night for dinner every night.
Sigh, a girl can dream...
