It doesn’t get any better than the beach!
I started the day in the hotel room by making a microwave omelet:
- 3/4 c Eggbeaters
- 1 egg
- handful of spinach
- handful of mushrooms
- 1/2 c frozen pepper and onion mix, thawed
Microwave in 3 minute intervals stirring in between and microwaving until liquid is gone.
And a bowl of mixed cereal in 8th Continent light vanilla soymilk. The bowl consisted of whole wheat chex, kamut puffs, and cheerios topped with sliced banana, blueberries and cinnamon.
I’ve been to Clearwater Beach four times now--the beautiful beaches, fun atmosphere, great shopping, and overall appeal keep me coming back. It’s just a few minutes from Tampa, and is somewhere I will continue visiting throughout my life.
It was about a 2 hour trek from Orlando to the beach, so I made sure to pack food obviously. I actually enjoy long car rides in different states when there is so much to see—especially at night when there is so many fun lights to look at! On the way I made sure to snack a bit. Before I left, I bought several different flavors of Luna bars, so I decided to try the White Chocolate Macadamia.
I veered away from Luna bars for quite some time because I didn't like the chemical aftertaste of most of their flavors—now they have a new recipe and I absolutely love them! Did you happen to notice the change in Luna bars lately? The White Chocolate Macadamia has to be number 3 in my favorite Luna’s so far.
#1 is Nuts Over Chocolate
#2 is Cookies n Cream
#3 is White Chocolate Macadamia
What’s your favorite Luna?
The beach was just as gorgeous as I remembered it last except a lot less busier than when I would come on Spring Break during high school. The breeze was a bit chilly, but that didn’t stop us!
I knew a trip to the beach required a feast of real and fresh seafood, so Crabby Bill’s it was! I have always been impressed with their great food, unique decor, and overall fun atmosphere. I decided tonight with the seafood I would either go big, or go home—I chose go big!
After much debate I finally chose the broiled seafood combo minus the garlic butter. I got seasonal veggies and red-smashed potatoes on the side.
Check out the stuffed I mini crab—so delish! But I don’t think I will be attempting this at home ha!
Overall, this meal was great even though the price was a bit high. I really loved the seafood seasoning, and actually debated buying some in the gift shop.
And check out the fun decor…
Then we figured we better head back after browsing a few more shops and grabbing a cherry parfait from DQ on the way out.
I left the beach with a seafood stuffed belly and a Florida smile!
