Will Hike for Burgers

Hola peeps!

I’m back from Banff and sorely missing my peeps, Holly (The Healthy Everythingtarian) and Susan (The Great Balancing Act). Let’s just say vacation blows work out of the water! And although today was a pretty decent day I still found myself thinking back to awesome Banff times. Like the time we hiked a mountain and earned a delicious evening of eats in the process . . .



Usually I tend to stay away from adult bevies and burgers. But these holidays called for an exception! They called for an utterly delish veggie/portabella burger, the most amazing french fries (drenched in malt vinegar – yum!), and a Bud Light with lime. Awesome.




With a side of food blogger at work! smile_tongue


And what does one do for an encore after such a meal (special mention to the french fries)? One heads to Cows – a Prince Edward Island treasure! Home to the richest ice cream known to man. By the way, rich ice cream = delish!!!



Say “hello!” to 16% milk fat! lol


All in all it was an awesome day: we conquered a mountain and then feasted!


Question: Have you ever exercised just so you could eat something particularly rich? That’s not what I did in this case but it did get me thinking . . .

I think I had Cows ice cream once in Ottawa. I know I took pictures out in front of it anyways. LOL.

I can't say I've exercised in order to eat something in particular. It's all about just finding that balance, and knowing when it's worth it to have that rich food :)

Yup definitely! But honestly I probably would've eaten that rich thing anyways- only once in awhile of course. And I want to try that Cows ice cream haha.

I always miss vacations when I get home and want to go back!
