One of my favorite things about traveling is eating! I love to try new foods from the area I’m in.
During my recent trip to Georgia, I ate some memorable meals including some delicious southern food! When I travel, I try to eat healthy most of the time and indulge in some of the regional food, special desserts or drinks. I ate healthy breakfasts every day on my trip. I picked up groceries and had oatmeal and a banana nearly every day in my hotel room in Atlanta. I also worked out, hiked and did lots of walking every day. So I got to enjoy some indulgent meals, guilt free!
Scrolling through these photos, it may look like a lot of indulgent meals, but keep in mind that I was there for 11 days! I ate pretty healthy while I was in Savannah for FitBloggin and the first few days I was in Atlanta. When the BF arrived after I had been there for six days, I indulged a bit more.
These are my absolute favorite meals from my trip…
Kayak Kafe, Savannah
The Palm Cocktail – Tito’s vodka, muddled cucumber, muddled mint, pineapple juice and mineragua
Black bean, spinach and mushroom tacos with melted jack cheese, pico de gallo, Latin slaw and guacamole
Olde Pink House, Savannah
Hummingbird Cocktail – champagne, elderberry liqueur and club soda
Pan seared jumbo lump crab cake, fried green tomato and remoulade sauce
Ice cream on the pier, Tybee Island
White chocolate and almond ice cream
Pig n’ Chik BBQ, Atlanta
Barbecue chicken, broccoli and hush puppies
The Vortex, Little Five Points, Atlanta
Holy Guacamole Burger – turkey burger with guacamole and jack cheese and tater tots
Laughing Skull Amber Ale
Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles, Atlanta
Salmon croquettes, grits and waffle with peach butter
Der Biergarten, Atlanta
Riesenbretzel – giant pretzel served warm with three kinds of mustard (split with the BF)
Front Page News, Atlanta
Southern Hospitality Burger – turkey burger with fried green tomato, sharp cheddar, roasted red pepper, spicy remoulade on kaiser bun (didn’t eat the fries)
This is what I had for breakfast every day that I spent at my cousin’s house (I stayed there a couple of days after FitBloggin in Savannah). I ate banana slices with Larabar Renola and almond butter. At the hotel, I had Simple Truth Instant Chia Oatmeal with banana slices.
