I must say, the month of May was all over the place after taking a solid 10 days off of running immediately following the marathon.

This past weekend was the first weekend I’ve been back at home in awhile without some sort of major happening taking place, which meant ample downtime after playing catch up for a few days.

For a delayed birthday celebration Saturday evening, my mom and I enjoyed an evening of grilling on her best friend’s deck overlooking Pensacola Bay. During the summer months my body especially craves lighter meals, which urges me to really focus on clean eating. Once it cools off a bit and gets slightly more tolerable outside in the evening hours, firing up the grill offers a festive way to enjoy fresh vegetables. Our vegetable features for Saturday evening consisted of grilled Portobello mushrooms, zucchini and onions. For a simple marinade, these veggies were brushed with a blend of garlic, salt, pepper and basil in Walnut EVOO.
