One of the best things Lisa and I did for our trip to India was plan a good amount of surprises. And one of the scariest things we did for our trip to India was plan a good amount of surprises, haha. I mean, I'm usually someone who does not enjoy surprises so I was always worried something wouldn't feel right. In the end, it always seemed like things worked out and everyone was either happy or super freaking happy. That being said, I didn't know what to expect for a good part of this Mexico trip-- and I didn't think much about what the plans would actually be when our to do list said "surprise breakfast." Cause, whatever. Well, I squealed like a little girl when I saw this gorgeous little set up at our hotel!! It was very, very uncharacteristic of me, but the setting was just so pretty! And on a freaking cenote! And with perfect weather! And I saw a bunch of fruit so I figured I wouldn't starve haha.
this guy said a little mayan prayer and brought us a tray of fruit. Alex and I both were super super excited to see a bunch of passionfruit (his absolute favorite) and I was super happy to see kiwis and papaya, my typical fruit of choice.
there were always tons of juice options too. I'm not really a fruit juice type of person (just green stuff for me), but I indulged and most were pretty good!
he's mocking me. whatever. he's still cute.
papaya with shredded coconut. tofu with honey and flax. roasted tomatoes + asparagus, a veggie "omelette"--- roasted veggies wrapped in thin zucchini with a red sauce and a cauliflower cream, and vegan GF breads and pastries!
so I didn't starve. It was all so good. I want this all here with me right now. I actually ate A LOT on this trip. We all did. But I guess it was good--- I needed to make up for the calories I was losing with all the extra walking! it's been a real struggle for me to gain this weight this year-- I really haven't at all. I'm a point where I feel healthy-ish and strongish ( as much as I can considering) so it doesn't bother me as much----- I just wish I had shorts/pants that fit me. yum yum yum.
then I looked over and was amused by alex's breakfast. He was happy.
also, I think I really only realized this year how lucky we are to have fresh coconuts everywhere. I feel bad for everyone who doesn't have this luxury. sorry guys.
ps. I started drinking coffee again on this trip! Alex loves it. I'm torn. I don't like feeling addicted to things and man, coffee is one hell of a drug.
And explore even more!
Even more colorful photos to follow ;) And a story about a mayan abdominal massage I did--- and how I did actually go in a cenote--- but there are no pictures to prove it. But I did it guys! Happy wednesday!
