Mazatlán’s Morning Workout

Do you like to work out in the morning? I am partial to a brisk 3 to 4 mile walk on the malecón, early enough that it’s light out but not so late that the sun has risen high enough in the sky to hit the walking surface. The photo at the top shows one of the many morning swimmers who regularly set out from the Club de Natación at Playa Norte. The malecón between 6 and 8 in the...

I choose coconut or olive oil over canola....

To that end, I have been snapping phone pictures of my most photogenic meals for the last month or so when it occurs to me. I’ve written posts on this topic before, here and here. The descriptions for the photo above: 1. Bulgur wheat and vegetables with parmesan cheese. 2. Veggie burrito at...
