This past week I celebrated turning 26 in the Outer Banks, NC for a few days with Thomas. It was PERFECT! The weather, the food.. man we love that place. We weren't on the north end per usual -this time we we stayed in Manteo. We love exploring new places and relaxing together!
On another note- it was my goal to MAINTAIN being on the Whole30 diet while down there for my birthday! I am pretty proud of myself for succeeding.. for the most part. ; - ) Here are some of the things I ate & did:
Loved having quiet time on the porch in the morning and black COFFEEEEE yes. #coffeeaddict
Kill Devil Grill was an awesome recommendation for dinner- WORTH the 45 minute wait!
(* there most likely WAS some butter in the mashed potatoes (no other dairy though) + potential white wine in the saffron broth.. but I was okay with it considering I did pretty well.. also thank goodness white potatoes are now WHOLE30! ) This was the most delicious thing ever,
As for "birthday" treats.. last year I made a watermelon cake.. but this year I found THESE...
So there you have it.. just 5 more days of Whole30. However, I feel so good I intend to eat this way as much as possible! and of course here are more pictures of OBX :-)
