Ahh, vacation! Hotel sheets, new places to explore and good food around every corner. The food of a place is as much a part of the culture and experience of a city as anything else so when it comes to dining out while traveling, my rule is anything goes! In Italy you eat all the pizza, pasta, and gelato. While in Mexico City, no taco left behind. In France it would be a crime to not sample each and every buttery, flaky croissant. You get the idea. Last weekend Aaron and I were in San Antonio for a quick 24 hours, but we still managed to hit up our favorite Mexican food spot, enjoy the fried quail at another, and spend the early part of Sunday morning sharing a scone and coffee cake in bed. Suffice it to say, this meal plan is for me and maybe, just maybe, you might find yourself craving all the healthy things after an adventure this summer, too.
