I have mixed success finding healthy foods while traveling. I’ve done better more often than not the past year. Sometimes the best intentions just don’t work though. Before I left for this trip I decided that I was going to do the best possible job at finding healthy foods to eat.
I spotted a restaurant across from the hotel right away. Something told me that it would be a winner and I was right. Seasons52 features fresh foods and new seasonal entrees each week. (I did not realize this was a chain and discovered that there is also one in Birmingham.) Lunch was a white bean soup and a caramelized pear salad.
In the afternoon I discovered a wonderful grocery store near the hotel where I am staying. I bought fruit, yogurt, and two small pieces of chocolate. I enjoy finding grocery stores and local markets when I travel. Sometimes that works better than other times, but today it worked. I know I can easily go back and buy yogurt or other healthy foods. There is also a restaurant and coffee bar in the store. So, day one of this trip was a win for healthy eating.
