Typically, people travel to the Sunshine State for palm trees and seaside views, but March means swapping the beachfront for the baseball field. Spring Training is well on its way, and as you’ve been gearing up for the big games, we’ve been busy cooking up a list of healthy additions for your agenda.
Grab your baseball caps and batter up with Wellwellwell’s guide to the Grapefruit League.
Eat As The Locals Do
Experience the best food that Florida has to offer with a visit to one of these local organic eateries.
Cool down with a HipPOPs at America’s first gluten-free and kosher ice-cream truck, which makes pit stops across the state’s southern region. Customers can choose from an array of gelatos, sorbets and frozen yogurts dipped in pistachios, hazelnuts, almonds or pecans—a protein-packed treat perfect for the ballpark.
What’s better than comfort food? Nothing…well, unless it’s health-conscious comfort food. Take a trip to Chef Brooke’s Natural Café in Fort Meyers. From deli favorites to super food smoothies, this local joint is sure to throw a curveball at those travel-induced cravings.
A Grand Slam For Your Gluts
Baseball and beaches aren’t the only perks Florida has to offer. Take a break from the bleachers with a hike through one of Lakeland’s premiere trails. Inspired by the Major League players batting skills? Go the extra mile and get those arms in shape with some of our upper body workouts.
The Coast Is Calling
A visit to the Sunshine State wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach. From the crystal clear waters of Sand Key Park in Tampa to Sarasota’s favorite sunshine oasis, Siesta Key, these cities’ beachfronts are practically begging to be broken in. Burn more calories with every step on a barefoot jog through the sand, or kick up your core workout with an afternoon of surfing. With all this scenic exercise, you can indulge in a few more ballpark munchies—after all, what’s a homerun without a hot dog?
