Denver was fun, but our main honeymoon destination was Boulder, so we packed up the car and said goodbye to Denver.

It was a hard goodbye because we had such a great time in Denver.

As we rolled into Boulder we were taken aback by the beauty of the mountains. Yes we have mountains in Phoenix, but they are different mountains, it is so green in Colorado. Denver was much more city/busy, but when we got to Boulder it just seemed like a big mountain town and so much more relaxed. We drove around for a bit and just explored for awhile.

It was soon time for dinner and since one of our main goals was to hit as many breweries as possible, we decided to go to Fate Brewing Company for dinner and drinks.

Not only were the beers good, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Again, I swear everyone is Colorado is incredibly nice.

After basically tasting every beer they had to offer I ordered the FATE Moira, which is their IPA to drink. For dinner Matt ordered the Fresh Grilled Salmon which was amazing – because like I could ever not steal a bite of his food. I ordered the Poached Pear Salad and added chicken, which was also amazing. Poached pears + goat cheese is where it’s at.

We were a bit tired that night so decided just to head back to the hotel and take a dip in the hot tub. It was a nice relaxing night.

The next morning we set out to find a spot for breakfast. Matt and I both had done some research of some local spots that we wanted to check out, but most of them were breweries and more lunch/dinner type places, so we basically just drove around and searched on Yelp for a place to eat. We found a cute little place called Walnut Cafe.

I ordered the Boulder Scramble which was tofu, spinach, tomatoes and onions and Matt ordered the Tofu Rancheros.

Again, I had a bit of food envy. My breakfast was good, but Matt’s definitely was better.

After breakfast we decided we wanted to do a little bit of hiking so we headed to Chautauqua Park which we heard had a bunch of different trails to hike.  Again, the scenery is beautiful and it was just so nice to be outside in the mountains and take in the view.

I could seriously get use to this.

We worked up a bit of an appetite during the hike so we set off to find a place to have some lunch.

There are so many fresh and healthy restaurants in Boulder and one that was recommended to me to try was Zeal.

I was impressed upon walking into Zeal and love their concept of healthy eating using whole fresh ingredients.

For lunch I ordered the chicken lettuce wraps which were out of this world delicious. Matt did a create your own bowl with a base of cauliflower rice, chicken as his protein and the thai peanut sauce topped off with mixed vegetables. His was good, but this time I was extremely pleased with my selection.

After lunch we just walked around town, went into some shops and just explored a bit more.  There was a lot to see and a lot to do. We went into multiple shops, multiple breweries and bars and basically just wandered around all day. When it was time for dinner I actually had a bizarre, yet not bizarre request for dinner and activity. I had heard that Boulder had an amazing Whole Foods and since we’re such fans of ours, I really wanted to check theirs out. Since it was dinner time we just decided to eat there as well.

After dinner we stopped at one more bar that was close to our hotel and finished the night there with some drinks. It was overall a great day of exploring and enjoying the town.

It was a late night and when we woke up I immediately wanted coffee and food. And quick.

So since I didn’t want to take the time to research and try to find a place we actually decided to go back to Zeal for breakfast since it was so delicious for lunch the day before.

Coffee and my husband. The start to a great morning!

For breakfast I ordered the oatmeal and asked if they could add their home made granola. They did not skimp! I also got  side of their in house made coconut sugar syrup and local honey.

Matt ordered a fresh pressed orange juice which was basically like drinking a fresh orange, the tofu scramble and a side of the most amazing bacon I have ever had. I was seriously so impressed with this place. Everything they made was so fresh and delicious.

After breakfast it was time for some relaxation. Matt had booked us a couples massage at a spa that had gotten great reviews. After hiking the day before we were more than ready for some pampering. The massages were amazing. It was so nice to be able to relax, get pampered and spend some intimate time with my husband. It just made me realize I need to get massages more often. Much needed.

After our massages we set out for lunch.  There was a cute little place called Lyfe Kitchen we noticed across the street when we were walking to the spa, so we decided to head there for lunch.

We started out with some cocktails and the cucumber mint margarita I ordered was one of the best I’ve had. So good I had to take a picture… or am I really just taking a picture of Matt and I showing off our married status?

I had a really hard time deciding what I was in the mood for, but ended up choosing the mahi mahi fish tacos. I mean tacos and margaritas just go together right? Well let me just tell you, they were amazing. Why don’t I order fish tacos more often?

Matt ordered a grass fed burger and a side of garlic parmesan sweet potato fries. And yes you guessed it, I stole some of his fries. They were served with a chipotle aioli which was amazing. Basically everything was amazing.

After lunch we had plans to go visit one specific place we were very excited about. But since this is getting pretty lengthy, that will be for next time.

Because isn’t all of this already pretty marvelous?
