For the next week or so, I'll be blogging from Florida. Right now, I'm in "Leisureville" - where everyone has white socks up to their knees and no one is in a hurry to go anywhere. It also means that there aren't a lot of places that offer quality food.
There are diners galore -and these places offer VALET PARKING! Why? Because all of the handicapped spaces are full... and it's a rarity to see a car WITHOUT the blue sticker. The diner is THE hit of the neighborhood around these parts.
No special coffee shops here, either. After my second day here, I wondered if a local Starbucks could even be my sustenance for the next few days while in Delray Beach, Florida. Could I have every meal here??
I realize how spoiled I have become, as I cringe at the thought of an IHoP or Applebee's. It's not that I'm unable to eat there, but the levels of sodium and lack of flavor just insult me. It's perplexing to think that this is what Main Street America finds acceptable for their daily dining choices. There must be more!
I'm not saying that every location should serve foie gras and gluten-free veggie tofu burgers, but having variety and healthier choices make a huge difference.
I've got to go shopping at the Publix and hope they have palatable options. Stay tuned as NYCFG learns how to really lose weight: stop eating until returning to the city!
