After a couple hours on the beach, I walked back to the resort for a little treat. I had booked a deep tissue detox massage. Present Moment offers several different types of massages and they are all in simple rooms with open air, overlooking the beach. I love an over the top luxurious spa with fluffy robes and fancy waiting rooms, but this had a different charm that also captured my heart. I had never had a massage with the sounds of the waves in the background and the quality of the treatment was phenomenal.
Post massage, I felt like I was floating. Between the yoga and the massage, my body was completely at ease, very centered, and self-aware. No tension and everything felt effortless.
Lunch was a salad. Mexico isn’t a place I normally eat salad, but this resort prides itself on the quality and integrity of the good and the ingredients, so salads were a staple.
For dinner, I discovered one of my favorite meals. Spicy Carrot and Red Pepper soup with chunks of avocado. This soup was raw and made in the juicer and I was blown away by the combination of flavors from such simple ingredients. For some reason carrot juice really scares me, but this is so similar and I was obsessed.
It started raining during dinner, so half way through I made a move inside and finished up before heading back to my room for reading and listening to the storm.

Have you had spiraled veggies? Is spiralized a work?
