Well crap. I just woke up this morning feeling fine, sat down on the couch to cuddle with the puppy dog and I felt a pain shoot up my neck and now I can barely turn my head. What in the what?! I think I may have been cursed since last night I heard a cat fighting with some other creature. I bet it was a black cat and now I’m effed because I didn’t run outside at 3am to save it. So now I’m trying not to move my neck even in the slightest because it shoots sharp pains up and down my spine. Totally normal.

I turn 29 next month. This older age (no, I’m not saying I’m old, stop freaking out) is really starting to rear her ugly head and I’m not into it. Aches and pains, skin texture changing, more moles. I’ve had 3 moles in the past month removed now to check for cancer. Luckily, we are good so far. But I have about 524 to cross off my list. Cute.

Speaking of 30, I want to start planning my 30th birthday trip. I’m not a huge birthday person. I don’t like people feeling obligated to talk to me or give me things because it’s the day I shot out of my mother’s womb. I just like spending that day however I’d like – which means I usually work, go to the gym, then get myself some gluten free cake. I don’t need presents or FB wishes. If I want something, I will just make myself work hard enough to earn it. BUT I do like an excuse to plan a trip somewhere. And a part of me REALLY wants to go to Greece. But that’s an expensive trip and most of my friends are shooting out babies or just don’t want to spend that much money on travel. I’m already told daily that I’m an only child and act out only child behaviors on a daily basis, so just saying eff it and going to Greece could come off a tad selfish.

So where should I (meaning we…there I go with the only child stuff) go?! I’ve been to Mexico so many times but a blogger I follow just started posting some photos from Playa del Carmen and it looks pretty damn awesome! And it’s so easy to get to and affordable compared to other options.

PS – still can’t move my neck. Send help! And cake!

  1. Whisk together the coconut aminos, sriracha, sesame oil, vinegar and salt. Reserve 1/2 the mixture and set aside. Place tuna steak in a shallow dish then pour the other 1/2 of the mixture on top. Cover and set in the fridge to marinate for 3 or more hours, turning to tuna half way through.
  2. Once the tuna is done marinating, make the cauliflower rice and set to the side to keep warm while you finish the rest of the bowl.
  3. Place a medium stainless steel pan over medium high heat and add the avocado oil. Once pan is super hot, place the marinated tuna steak in the pan and sear on both sides for 1 minute. Remove from pan after the 2 minutes and place on a cutting board to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  4. While the tuna steak rests, dice the cucumber and avocado and begin to build the bowls.
  5. Thinly slice the tuna steak against the grain and top on your rice bowl. Garnish with green onions, pickled ginger, and sesame seeds and use the 1/2 reserved marinade to splash on top of your tuna bowls!

    St. John is amazing. Highly recommend. We went there for our honeymoon and I’d go back every year if we could. Beautiful scenery, mountains and trails to hike, tons of private beaches, snorkeling is amazing there. We were looking for an active healthy vacation, but with relaxation worked in as well, and this was the best. Wonderful fresh food and drinks. It’s absolute heaven there. The terrain is crazy–we rented a jeep so we could drive the island and my husband had a blast driving on those roads (I would never have the courage to drive those roads but so glad he did because being a passenger was awesome and we saw so much amazing scenery and terrain). We stayed at the Westin but now that I’ve been, it’s way overpriced and I do not recommend staying there. I would recommend renting a cottage or home for the week–much more cost efficient and you could find an adorable place with a great view. Have fun planning!

    Greece is lovely and the food would be up your alley (fresh, simple, clean and delicious). BUT one reason I will likely not go back to Greece again is the number of homeless stray pups wandering around. It was so so sad!! They’re so sweet and this one pup followed us around. It broke my heart … as a dog lover, I don’t want to go somewhere and be sad at all the homeless dogs and at the sometimes careless / cold attitudes people have towards dogs.

    Sorry, no travel recommendations but I made this recipe tonight and it was delicious! Husband said it was a keeper. Once the fish is marinated it comes together very easily and the flavor are fanatastic.
