Happy Father’s Day from Maui! Made @trailrunr_ a breakfast of our fav @latortillafactory tortillas with eggs, avocado, and local mango from down the road, after a short run around Kihei. Taking a semi-break from social media on this trip, so have a good week everyone! Check my stories for occasional snapshots #vacationmode #hawaii #happyfathersday #healthy #breakfast
Extra big breakfast after my morning run and before a long walk during Arielle’s nap! Shared these plates with my baby, who apparently now can’t get enough bacon. 😂 On these types of beach vacations where breakfast is included, I usually go for a big breakfast, lighter lunch by the pool or beach (today it’s an almond butter and guava jam sandwich that I made in my room + some snack stuff like beef jerky or fruit), and a regular dinner.
Quick stop in my hometown of Santa Cruz before continuing on to Maui with my family! Arielle loves the outdoors like her parents and I’m excited to have some fun beach days together. Also excited to leave her with Grandma & Grandpa so we can go on some solo trail running adventures around the island like we used to pre-baby! Travel definitely is SO much harder at 15 months - just survived another tough flight with only a *few* never-ending meltdowns - but hopefully worth it! In true dietitian fashion, I of course carry at least six different snacks and that seems to appease her. 😂 #toddlerlife #momlife #travel #vacation #beach #california #hawaii #maui #dietitian #feedmeandtellmeimpretty
This smoothie on the deck hits the spot! My usual loaded up with spinach, frozen berries, banana, plain Greek yogurt, chia seeds and cinnamon
Another yummy California breakfast! Quite chilly here in the morning so was in the mood for oatmeal. Blended 1 peach and 1 banana with milk and then cooked on the stove with 1 cup dry rolled oats, cinnamon and 2 Tbsp chia seeds, then topped with blueberries and almond butter. Served two adults and a baby!
Good morning from California! Yesterday was a challenging travel day capped off with a sick baby, so we’re feeling a bit rough today but still excited to be here. Starting the day off right with a good breakfast - local eggs, avo, strawberries picked down the road, tomatoes & peaches! Yum.
