Have any plans? For those of you venturing out of San Diego, travel safe and have a wonderful vacation. If you plan on sticking around sunny SD, then boy do you have an array of options to check-out! After you head over to Club Med for breakfast or lunch (they’re open from 7:30AM to 2PM Monday-Friday next week), be sure to head on down to the beach and soak up some vitamin D.
Did you know the sun provides one of the best sources of vitamin D? The ultraviolet B rays from the sun deliver vitamin D directly to our bodies, helping with many important functions, like those involving our muscles, brain, immunity and cardiovascular health, The amount of vitamin D available to our body does differ though depending on the region you are in, the time of day, and skin pigment color. Lucky for those here in San Diego you are almost guaranteed a decent amount based on the AMAZING weather we’ve been getting!
Need a little boost after the beach? I suggest grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local spots here in San Diego. These restaurants have received much attention on Food Network shows over the past few years due to their interesting and unique flavor combinations. A few of my favorites are:
· Lucha Libre: http://tacosmackdown.com/
· Blue Water Seafood Grill: http://bluewaterseafoodsandiego.com/
· Ranchos Cocina: http://ranchoscocina.com/
· The Broken Yolk Café: http://thebrokenyolkcafe.com/
· Extraordinary Desserts: http://www.extraordinarydesserts.com/
You can also download the “On the Road” app on your smart phone to view more places locally as well as places to stop at on the road for those traveling afar.
Have a wonderful spring break and we look forward to seeing you in Spring Quarter. Here’s a reminder of our hours for Spring: http://hdh.ucsd.edu/DiningHours/.
