Our Trip to Spain and Portugal: Evora Part 2

This is my second post about Évora. You can read the first one here: Évora Part 1

I'm sorry it has taken me a while to get this final post published from my series about our trip to Spain and Portugal. Ever since we returned from Europe in June, things have been CRAZY hectic around here. It's fun to look back and remember the vacation we took in May. Seems like a lifetime ago!

As I mentioned in my last post, we stayed at a fabulous B&B called Albergaria Do Calvário. It was at this little gem of a place that we were served the most sumptuous hotel breakfast ever — every morning.

Breakfast in Evora, Portugal

I just had to share it with you guys!

Good thing I was still RRARFing (“rehabilatative rest and aggressive refeeding”) while we were there because all we did was eat and rest and maybe do a little walking and then eat some more.

Pastured eggs (the hotel owner goes out of his way to procure them from a local farm), freshly squeezed organic juice and apple juice, homemade bread, and local honey and jam.

Not only did they have an amazing spread, but they will make you anything you want — omelettes, scrambled eggs, you name it.

Here's a peek at the breakfast buffet at Albergaria Do Calvário:

Local ham and cheese, organic tomatoes, local olive oil and sea salt.

Freshly squeezed organic juices and local, homemade yogurt.

Homemade cakes and sweet breads.

Homemade frittata and olive bread.

An array of local and organic fruit.

Homemade bread.

I am sorry to say, this post is the last in my series on Portugal and Spain.

I guess it's time to take another trip!

In 2007, after my first child was born, I started this little food blog which I grew to over 250K monthly unique website visitors and over 350K social media followers. For nearly 15 years, I've helped my audience of mostly moms and women 25-65 cook for their families and live a healthier lifestyle.

 The year after I started the blog, I founded a blog network in the health & wellness space called Village Green Network. I started the company on my coffee table and bootstrapped the business to over $1.3 million in annual revenue within 5 years. During that time, I helped a number of our bloggers become six figure earners.

Because who can think about food when we are fighting the second revolutionary war and third world war? Don't worry, there will be more recipes one day. After the war is over.
