Started my morning with one of these. Raspberry, blueberry, cranberry, organic basil and orange – all the vitamins I need to kickstart my morning. Well, that and a double shot Americano to go. Its so hard to find good berries here, and the ones you find will basically cost you an arm and a leg. Need to figure out if there are local farmers who do like a delivery thing where I can get some good ones sent home every week without going broke in the process… Berry vendor suggestions welcome!
I’m having a friend over at my place today and we’re planning a few upcoming events. I love having a million things going on, and events is one of those things I’ve chosen to focus on in my spare time because it doesn’t collide or crash with my actual job. We have an event coming up at the St. Regis hotel on Friday two weeks from now. I can’t wait to tell you all about it as soon as the details are finalised!
This may just turn into a food blog while I’m going at it with my daily life. I just love food too much to not share. Yesterday we both finished work late, and by the time we finally met up for dinner, time had ticked all the way to 10pm.
Saif ordered one of their best pasta dishes and it looked delicious
For those of you who don’t know already–about 1,5 years ago, I went for my first fitness class. I’m not exaggerating when I say I had never worked out properly once in my life prior to that–I didn’t know what a good workout was. Once I got really into it, I also started noticing a lot of positive changes with myself. From head to toe (literally), I was happier, fitter, more energetic, optimistic. Now that I’ve kept at it for a while, I can safely say, as much as its about a good workout, its about learning to pick my carb-battles. Knowing when its worth a french fry and when its not. Knowing what to balance out my creamy pasta with. Avoiding when possible.
So last night was one of those meals. Where the entire menu screams pasta, but you just know, its not meant to be…
…lucky me, the salmon at Celinese is delicious.
And then there was the meat platter. Nothing goes up against a meat platter with cheese. Nothing.
After dinner we watched another episode of Fargo, season 2. The second season is almost too intense for me to watch. I had to get up several times to take deep breaths and move around at the fear of fainting! Scary movies with a lot of violence just gets to me, can’t describe it. But the show is great – so good I can’t stop myself from watching…
