Eating Clean on Vacay - Sunday

The hotel deal we got was awesome and came with two vouchers for winery tours, as well as a breakfast buffet each morning and two dinner vouchers for restaurants in the hotel. 

The breakfast buffet was pretty good and I was pretty good with my choices. I opted for the fresh-made omelette with lots of veggies and cheese and a side of bacon. I also cheated a bit and got a waffle and a bowl of Fruit Loops because this meal was it till dinner :)

The afternoon was spent in Niagara-on-the-Lake, a quaint little town just north of the falls, full of boutiques, restaurants and wineries. We went on two winery tours and tastings, Peller Estates and Trius at Hillebrand. Peller boasts a VQA rating, which in Canada means that the wine does not have anything other than added flavors, additives, etc. They are also a sustainable vineyard.

Dinner was at the Watermark, a restaurant on the 33rd floor of our hotel and overlooking the falls. Honestly, we probably wouldn't have chosen this restaurant if it hadn't been for the voucher we got with our hotel deal because it was a little expensive and pretentious for us. But, thanks to the voucher, we enjoyed a delicious meal with an amazing view. I had the Heirloom salad with arugula, frisee, heirloom cherry tomatoes and white balsamic vinaigrette. For my entree, I had butternut squash ravioli with Gorgonzola bourbon sauce and chorizo. YUMMO!
