5 Reasons You Should Eat Out At A Fancy Restaurant Once A Month

By Susan Willis

Eating is not only a habit – it is also one of those basic necessities of life. Without eating right, it would be hard to live a quality life. If you do not treat your body to sufficient nourishment on a regular basis, you cannot perform at your optimal levels.

But eating also has other benefits beyond nourishment, including social benefits of getting together. And, there are the pleasurable benefits of just simply enjoying a well-cooked, delicious meal.

Most men and women at home are always trying cook foods that offer that ideal combination of nourishment and taste – something that their loved ones will appreciate. And, there is no doubt that home-cooked meals are often the very best.

Still, this does not mean that you should never consider eating out now and again. Dining at a restaurant allows you to skip having to buy and prepare food – or do the cleanup that comes afterward.

In fact, it is a good idea to eat out at a fancy restaurant at least once per month. Here are 5 reasons why you should eat out at a fancy restaurant once a month:

1. The first good reason to eat out is in order to save time. Both male and female members of the family work hard each day, and spending time cooking a meal is often the last thing they want to do. Instead, by eating out, they can enjoy each other’s company while on the way to the restaurant – not to mention while they are enjoying the meal.

2. Eating out once in a month makes one feel special. It is because this activity is different from day to day monotonous routine.

3. Moreover, if there is some kind of occasion like anniversary, birthday or any other special day, thus it can be made special by eating out.

4. In case you had a bad day at work, then once again eating out that day will give you a pleasant feel all over once again.

5. Last but not the least is the fact that eating out enables people to have the kind of food they want to eat. In the day to day routine, one eats more or less the same food items but eating out may offer you to eat something different. You can visit a restaurant that specializes in offering food items you are willing to eat. Eating what you are craving for is something out of this world.

In short, it will not be wrong to say that eating out once in a month offers you a number of great benefits. Dining out refreshes the mind and strengthens the element of love and care in your relationships. Making preparations to reserve the table for your loved ones, getting time to do so, all shows the level of care and attachment towards the loved ones. No doubt, this activity revitalizes the body and soul on every level.

Be sure to pamper yourself, your friends, and your family members to a nice meal out now and again. Try to do so at least once per month, and you will immediately begin to enjoy the benefits.

Out And About In Nassau Enjoying Outdoor Recreational Activities In The Bahamas

By Brian Ramsey

Mention the name The Bahamas and sparkling blue water with pink or white sand beaches spring to mind. Conch fritters, Conch salad, 700 islands, duty free shopping and Junkanoo are all terms that are synonymous with the Bahamas. This island nation has a total land area of 5,300 square miles and consists of 700 islands plus 2,500 cays (low banks or reefs). New Providence Island on which Nassau (the capital) is located is 21 miles by 7 miles. Paradise Island, which is 5.5 miles long by 2/3 of a mile wide is connected to Nassau by a short bridge. Thousands of tourists visit Nassau every year to enjoy the clear water or place their bets at the gambling tables at Paradise Island.

Nassau however has myriad outdoor recreational activities that are perfect for burning off the pounds gained from eating all those conch fritters or adding some variety to your holiday. For the business person who wants to catch some recreational activity on a business trip or the individual who wants to get some fresh air after all the time at the gambling tables, Nassau’s outdoor recreation can be all day or just a few hours.

Those sparkling blue waters make Nassau an ideal location for snorkeling. Some of the more popular snorkeling destinations for excursions leaving from Nassau include Rainbow Reef, Blue Lagoon Island (home to Stingray City as well as other snorkeling venues), Blackbeard’s Cay, Pearl Island, and Rose Island Reef. Rainbow Reef is approximately 45 minutes from Nassau by catamaran or other high-speed boat. The water at Rainbow Reef is about 15 feet deep throughout the viable swimming and snorkeling area. Blue Lagoon is a circular island encircling water. A narrow opening in the land leads into a large pool of water. A 15-minute walk through some of the most beautiful beaches and on bridges spanning absolutely calm sparkling blue water leads to Stingray City. Another stingray encounter can be had at Pearl Island which is a 30-minute boat ride from Nassau. Yellow tail snapper, Grouper, and many other tame fish make Athol Island in Athol Island National Marine Park at the eastern end of Nassau Harbor an outstanding snorkel site.


Those sparkling blue waters also make Nassau a wonderful location for the sport fisherman. Fishing charters are available for half day or full day with a choice of deep-sea fishing or reef fishing. Wahoo are abundant between November to January and 100 pounders are frequent. Dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi) are found between April and June, while Sailfish can be fought during April and May and again between October and November. Barracuda and Marlin (Black, Blue and White) are found year round.

For the landlubber, there is off-road cycling, away from traffic and noise. On all-terrain bicycles, you can enjoy a guided tour of shady woodland trails, open forest, the seashore and mangrove creeks and visit the historic village of Adelaide. You can have a relaxed, easy ride or a longer route. For the seasoned cyclist there are more challenging rides.

The Bahamas sits on the migration route for birds moving north and south on their winter and spring migrations. As such there are two opportunities to see many northern species. Of course, no visit to the Bahamas would be complete for a birder without viewing the Bahama Pintail duck (also known as the White-cheeked Pintail). These inhabitants of lagoons and mangrove swamps are widely distributed and the clear water of the mangroves makes viewing them a pleasure. Other species that are generally seen include eurasian collared doves, neotropic cormorants, american coot, great blue herons, snowy egrets, great egrets, reddish egrets, green herons, white ibis, blue winged teal, northern mockingbirds. Some of the locations for viewing various species include the Paradise Island ponds, Clifton Heritage site and the Harold & Wilson ponds.

For those who want to be outdoors but simply want a walking pace, Nassau has retained much of its older architecture and blended it with modern buildings so that it creates a harmonious whole. The original part of the city is small enough that you can wander along and see much of the historic architecture. Parliament Square with the Houses of Parliament, the Old Colonial Secretary’s office, the Supreme Court and the Statue of Queen Victoria is definitely worth a visit. Nearby at Parliament and Shirley Streets is the Nassau Public Library that was originally a prison. Not far away at Shirley and Elizabeth Streets is the Bahamas Historical Society with numerous exhibits.

If it is “action” and people watching you seek, Arawak Cay is not to be missed. This lively gathering spot has a row of small wooden restaurants fronted by a large park and backed by the sea. You can sit on the verandah of any of the restaurants or in the open air and watch the parade of people as they stroll by. Have a Kalik (Bahamian Beer) and enjoy the West Indian atmosphere and when hunger strikes you can have a conch salad or conch fritters or fried fish prepared before your eyes.

So the next time you are in Nassau or if it is your first time remember there is an interesting world to discover beyond the beach.
