I’ve been busy in LA and wanted to share a few pictures from my visit with all of you. I seriously could easily be a vegan if I lived out here. There are so many healthy places to eat that serve amazingly delicious food. Why doesn’t this exist in the rest of America!?
I had lunch with my sister-in-law at Real Food Daily. I ordered a winter Ceasar salad made with butternut squash, kale, pepitas, avocado and chickpeas. It was amazing! Amy Smart sat next to us as well which was fun and kinda cool. It fulfilled my celeb sighting quota. I always see one while I’m out here. Last time it was my doppleganger Lucy from 7th Heaven.
I took a yoga class at Core Power on Wednesday afternoon. I needed a pick me and went to Pressed Juicery to buy a few bottles of green juice for the week. I also grabbed a mini to energize my workout. I took class with Nick and he was excellent. I really enjoyed his style and the sequences. It was really challenging and made me very sweaty.
Afterwards, I hit up Mendocino Farms for lunch. This was my 3rd visit to this CA based mini-chain and each time I love it more. I got the sophisticated chicken salad and was not disappointed. It came with prosciutto, chicken, roasted veggies, edamame, fresh mozzarella and toasted almonds. The dressing was a pesto basil vinaigrette and was a highlight. I said I *could* be a vegan, not that I was or wanted to be! 🙂
At Real Food Daily, I had to take a picture of my sister-in-law’s meal as well. She ordered a seasonal special as well that was a vegan take on Thanksgiving dinner. She said it was delicious as well.
We split the sea cake for an appetizer and may be my favorite thing that I’ve tried out in LA yet. I may dream about it tonight.
Tonight, I took my nephews trick or treating. They little guys lasted a solid a 30 minutes but picked up their fair share of goodies. It was interesting to see how no one gives out the “healthy alternative” candy even in a state like California and neighborhood that has a Whole Foods in walking distance.
