update update update

I haven't felt like posting for the past couple of months. I guess I've been busy, and it sort of lost its luster. I go in and out of feeling like this. But now I feel like posting again, and I'm stoked. Here's some food:

Food from Slaviya in Adams Morgan. Seriously amazing. Some of the best food I've eaten in a while. Simple, Eastern and dank.

They even had veg stuff for Scott.

Homemade almond bread with eggs and smoked salmon.

Fish and veggies from Bangkok Joe's.

Salmon, avocado, and mashed cauli and carrot (to the style of mashed potatoes).

Scott and I in Panama! Should write a separate post about this...

Homemade chicken bone broth. LIQUID GOLD, BABY!

A super rare steak, taters and this really awesome mushroom.

Scott and I went to LA! And Long Beach, Newport Beach, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Malibu and Manhattan Beach. This is the latter.

We ate delicious Mexican. These are corn tortillas, not wheat.

We went to True Food Kitchen, whose menu is based off of Andrew Weil's anti-inflammatory diet. Which is actually really, really stupid (even though I liked some of the options on the menu). The diet is actually pro-inflammatory, with the base of the diet recommending 3-5 servings of grains a day, pasta 2-3 times a week and beans and legumes 1-2 times a day. He also advocates 2-3 of soy A DAY. And fish only 2-6 times a week. The diet also promotes canola oil. So in short, it's a completely ridiculous diet. Scott got gluten-free pasta, above. I got gluten-free fish tacos, below.

The portions were really small, especially for the price. Another reason this diet wouldn't work for anyone, super small portions that don't fill you up often leaving you craving food later, and chances are you'll reach for junk. If only because it's more convenient and you already shelled out $20 for appetizer portions.

We drove up a mountain in Beverly Hills. My crappy camera phone does no justice. We left the digi cam at home.

View of Santa Monica from the ferris wheel! One of my favorite parts!

View of the ferris wheel from the pier!

Some oysters I got in Newport on our last night.

And saw raw, dehydrated beet chips I made with the dehydrator Scott got me for my birthday!

So, that's just an update. Hopefully I'll get back into writing more posts. We'll see.
