If Ziplining Is On Your Bucket List......

 That's me!!!
...then find a way to make it happen!!

During my recent trip to Brandcation "Bloggers Gone Coastal" in Pensacola, our entire group of 32 mommy bloggers was treated to a day of Ziplining and Tubing at Adventures Unlimited. This was my second time ziplining and it was even better this time around. For one, I was prepared for the long hike up the zip towers.

This is the second tower we had to climb - 95 steps to be exact. That's a lot of leg work....but so worth the ride down!
Secondly, my group chose to do be in the "adventurous group" which meant our course was a little bit tougher than the other 3 groups. I'll be honest, I'm usually not this brave when it comes to heights but there is something about ziplining that is totally freeing. I'm addicted!

Plus we had the coolest guides (Dave and Brooke) who made sure we all had an amazing time!

1 tsp olive oil (5g)
2 tbsp real bacon bits (14g)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce

1 Medium Head of Cabbage


Preheat the oven (or the grill) to 425 degrees.

Mix the olive oil, bacon bits, lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to make the marinade.

Prepare the cabbage. Rinse it under water and remove any yucky loose leaves.

Cut the head in half on the core then cut the halves in half again to make quarters.
