I apologize if this post seems a bit all over the place but I’m watching Westworld as I write this! Is anyone else hooked?!
I spent the last 10 days in Santa Monica and returned to wintry San Francisco on Sunday. Most days while I was at home I started out with some kind of workout and my go-to protein oats (oats/almond milk/egg white whipped in at the end plus fruit/nut butter) and mom’s french press. I got to try a bunch of new workout studios, including Pilates Platinum, MDR Studio, and Kinetic Cycling. I went to Kinetic Cycling with one of my oldest friends (remember Rachel?) and we grabbed iced lattes afterwards at Alfred. It was great to catch up!I often did lunch out while I was at home, but one day mom made me her go-to salad:I met up with my college roommate at M Cafe in Beverly Hills for their famous macro bowl with tofu:I also made a requisite visit after a long hike with my family to Thyme Cafe for their kale salad with brussels, fennel, and pine nuts – my favorite: I did a long Saturday brunch with one of my best friends at Huckleberry and we shared the fall chopped salad and their “green eggs and ham” open faced sandwich thing:We also did a night out in Downtown LA/Hollywood and went to Sugarfish (a MUST!) and saw Hedwig and the Angry Inch – it was really a fun show unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Another memorable dinner was at Jaipur – their tandoori fish was something I’d go back for again and again.
On Thanksgiving, I was in charge of the cranberry sauce, stuffing, and sweet potato biscuits. I have no pictures of the meal itself but my Aunt Lisa made a beautiful beet tart that looked like the sunset so I grabbed a picture of that! My favorite Thanksgiving items were my mom’s cabbage (which I made again yesterday) and my Aunt Mary’s mashed potatoes.
Yesterday when I returned home I did a major food prep session including hard boiled eggs, protein bites, banana cookies, my mom’s cabbage, ground chicken burger patties. I’m set for the week!
