In my hotel room there’s a little kitchenette with a toaster, a fridge, a coffee machine but not a stove. That means no cooking for me this vacation, which isn’t the end of the world; I get to go out and sample all the food here in Cabarete And I can tell you that I did a really good job; I’ve been to many places hunting down the best food. I wish I would get paid to eat LOL.
When I’m vacationing enjoying some unhealthy yummy food like pizza, pasta, French fries and ice cream is very much part of it. All in moderation of course, I don’t want to feel sluggish an bloated when I go home, I want to feel like a million bucks! Eating healthy and exercising is key to achieve that.
It’s always a bit more challenging to find healthy food; most menus only have a few healthy options but I managed to find some very tasty dishes. In the picframe you can see some of them: sitr-fry, soy chicken with veggies and rice, Chicken salad with blue cheese, apple and walnuts, and the most delicious grilled garlic lobster. Yes I’ve been spoiling myself 😉 I also make sure to eat lots of fruits, veggies and I drink lots of water. ( ocean water included haha)
Kiteboarding is a great workout, it feels like I’m using every muscle in my body, burning lots of calories while playing with the elements of nature! Laurel Eastman’s kiteboarding school has very good instructors, one of them is the Dutch Maurice. We were talking about “Models Do Eat” and he happens to be a talented cook and super passionate about his food. Thai food is one of his specialties and guess what? He was so nice to share his Tom Kha Gai soup recipe with me! I can’t wait to try this recipe when I’m back home! Yes, of course I’ll share it with you too! 😉
A big smile and a perfect morning breeze from Cabarete!
