Two weeks ago I had to travel to Austin for work. I had never been to the Live Music Capital of the World and decided to tag on a few extra days to explore! Again, to hold myself accountable I decided to document my trip for you and show that healthy travel is possible!
Lately, meal prep has been the only reason I am sticking with my healthy eating plan! If I go to the effort of meal planning/prep and know that there is something good for me to eat I find it way easier to resist temptation!
I have been on an egg kick and was looking for a different way to prepare them. I had pretty much exhausted myself with the Mini Egg Frittatas! While still good, I wanted to change up my egg game. So I researched other ways to make eggs in bulk and many recipes for sheet pan eggs came up. The idea behind these recipes is to turn the eggs into breakfast sandwiches. Well, bread and I haven’t really been friends over the past few years, so I thought why not just turn them into omelets!
Let’s Getaway! Recently, I took a trip to a Getaway House – a tiny cabin outside of Washington D.C. Work had been crazy stressful and I just needed a few days to unwind and not worry about anything…and The Getaway House was just what I needed.
Now, let’s back up a couple of years to 2015. I read a story about a Harvard Business School student who decided to launch a business where tiny houses/cabins were rented for weekends out of the city. I was ready to sign up!
My family and I used to camp a lot when I was younger and I don’t do it nearly enough now. I thought the Getaway houses would be perfect! I don’t have to pack up the tent and bring all the equipment. I would just need to show up to my tiny cabin! Plus, I mean who doesn’t love the thought of a tiny cabin…I mean really!
The rub back in 2015 was that the cabins were only located outside of Boston. That is quite the commute for a weekend trip from Maryland. So, I continued to follow the company’s success and just hoped that they would spring up a little closer to home.
Then, finally this year I saw the news – Getaway was coming to Washington D.C.!!!! I knew there was a trip to the tiny cabins in my future it was just a matter of when!
So, since I have taken my trip I wanted to review the experience for you. Up front, I just want to say that it was 100% worth it and I plan to go again ASAP 🙂
I am always looking for ways to change up my protein options. I usually prep 1 or 2 proteins on Sunday to eat throughout the week. But, grilled chicken and ground turkey can get pretty boring after awhile.
So, when I came across SkinnyTaste’s recipe for Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, I was ready to make it Ideal Protein friendly!
