Paleo Eats: 12/20/11 (3rd Day in Cabo)

Pin It

Just like the past two days, I did nothing but relax, chill with the family, and indulge in good eats.

For breakfast, I sautéed some peppers, onions, and mushrooms in butter and topped it all off with a big spoonful of guacamole.

With full bellies, we wandered around our resort and practiced owling in different spots.

At 11:00 a.m., we took a cab downtown and grabbed brunch at Mama’s Royal Café.

Although this place definitely caters to tourists — including one-eyed, one-armed pirates named “Captain Fork”…

…their omelets are pretty yummy. Fitbomb and I shared two omelets: a shrimp Florentine stuffed with butter-sauteed shrimp, spinach, and mushrooms…

…and one packed with bacon, avocado, and mushroom.

The breakfast items all come with potatoes and toast, so if you happen to be eating here, ask the server to sub extra fruit in their place. We also ordered a plate of watermelon, but it wasn’t super ripe and/or sweet.

And now for the Mexican Viagra ad of the day. Is it just me or is the picture on the left particularly disturbing?

After lunch, we took a cab down to the Walmart Super Center and stocked up on groceries. I’m usually not down with Walmart, but this one literally blew our minds. Lil-O demonstrates:

Without a doubt, this is the place to go to buy fruits, veggies, AND underwear when you’re down in Cabo.

For the past two days, we’ve been scouring the streets of downtown Cabo San Lucas for a place to buy a variety of fresh produce and came up empty-handed — until today. Our Walmart haul included a large container of eggs, peppers, baby carrots, baby spinach, onions, ‘shrooms, a Lindt 85% cacao bar, Paleo-compliant beef jerky…

…dried fruit…

…and nuts.

We headed back to the resort, put away our groceries, and spent time at the beach until dinnertime.

Bear crawls!

For dinner, we headed back to downtown and dined at Patagonia, where we devoured mass quantities of grilled grass fed beef and veggies. You can read all about it here.

Our short trip in Baja California is already half over. We’ve all been enjoying each other’s company and it’s been fun bonding with our kids and my in-laws. I can’t believe it was a year ago that my mother-in-law was first was diagnosed with breast cancer. It’s wonderful hanging out with her this week in Cabo; she’s got a cute, Audrey Hepburn-esque new hairdo, and we’re so delighted that she’s happy and healthy. Life is good.
