“Breakfast by the Beach”

My plans changed unexpectedly the other morning, and I found myself fully dressed, and frustrated, with no where to go. Being the optimistic person that I am, I figured that there’s some divine reason I wasn’t supposed to go that day. I was hungry as all hell, so I decided to go find some breakfast. img_2010

I had been wanting to go to Coronado Island for quite some time, and found myself only 20 minutes away, so I said “fuck it why not, there’s for sure have breakfast there!” I put the Hotel De Coronado into my gps and went for it. I Parked my car along the beach and walked up the grand historical hotel, which is breathtaking. They have a cafe that sits in the middle of Hotel de Coronado facing the ocean with a million dollar view called the Sheerwater. The hostess sat me at a lovely table and suggested the crab benedict , so that’s what I ordered.

The waiter kept telling me I should try the buffet inside since it was all one price ($37), but I’m a huge Benedict fan so I stuck with my guns. It came and honestly it was just okay. Kind of disappointed, so since this little Italian can eat, I went inside for the buffet. Omg shut the fuck up… I should’ve started inside! Everything was so incredible looking and tasting! Wow! I finished my delicious rest of my breakfast, took a walk along the beach to do some reflecting and left the beautiful little Island.

A story I always think about that I heard once and I’m sure you’ve probably heard it. Is the one about a person that was late to work had to stop and get something which made them even more late, and how frustrated they where… ended up being an employee at the World Trade Center, the day of the attack. That story stuck in my head and every time I’m late or something happens that shifts my plans I believe that it’s somehow the universe keeping me from something negative, so I consciously make a positive out of the situation……But back to the food though… if for some random reason you find yourself in the Coronado Island area during breakfast… make s stop here. Seriously. Now go have a kick ass day.

“But first Coffee”

I’ll admit, I have a very under control addiction to coffee. We’ve come to terms with each other, its cool. My morning breakdown usually consists of going outside, having my morning cup of coffee, making another and using about half of that (sometimes more, don’t judge) in my breakfast smoothie. When I talk to people about coffee and the effects on the body, opinions are either really bad or really good. So I did some research and it just so happens that coffee is pretty awesome! It’s crazy rich with antioxidants, vitamins, increases brain activity, boosts metabolism, ect. Authority Nutrition says “The average person who eats a typical Western diet actually gets more antioxidants from coffee than fruits and vegetables… combined.” I was sold. So cheers to you and your kickass morning cup of coffee.
