Half Day in the Life

I thought it would be fun to bring you guys along for a part day in the life! We had a pretty fun and active day with some good eats so why not share it? Right?!

We started our morning off with a workout at the gym. We had planned on a hike after so we grabbed some food from a Starbucks drive through.

The egg white, spinach, feta wrap for B

The egg white, turkey bacon, and cheese sandwich for me

And a berry trio yogurt to share!

I’m not into eating egg whites alone, but I really enjoy it from Starbucks. Is that weird?!

We went for this beautiful hike in Eaton Park and eventually got to this beautiful fall. It’s not a crazy big one, but I still love it. The view was gorgeous and it was a fun and pretty easy hike!

Post hike we went and grabbed lunch from this waffle place-Wahfles. We got the Scarlette Johanson (the chicken) and the Penn Steak (the beef). Both were good!

We did not get a sweet waffle from here because we had one more stop before heading back home…

Donut Man!

We wanted to save our sweet teeth for these donuts. We got quite a few, but we both loved the cinnamon crumb the best 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this part day in the life! What have you been up to today? Let me know in the comments below!

When in Hollywood…

Do the Hollywood Hike?!?!? Or maybe it was when in Hollywood eat some Japanese pancakes? No? Just me?!

We woke up bright and early to do the Hollywood Hike which despite lack of motivation at the beginning ended up being quite rewarding. It’s a steady up hill climb, but nothing crazy.

After having hiked we build up a nice appetite and found a sweet little brunch spot at WKNDR.

We ordered the chicken sandwich, like we do.

Then we ordered the Japanese pancakes and my life was changed.

20180504_120916

The chicken sandwich was a good chicken sandwich-crispy chicken, soft bread, etc. But the pancakes were literally like eating cake. It was moist and once drizzled with syrup they were sweet and amazing!

Post brunch dessert ended up being a walk with some fruit cart fruit. It was tangy and salty and sweet-a perfect little ending to a sweet little brunch 🙂

Have you tried Japanese pancakes? What did you think??

Fishing around

It’s no secret we love food in this house and if we can combine that with being active-even better! We woke up in the morning and went to the gym before having a quick breakfast and heading back out for a hike with some friends.

Post-hike we all decided to grab food so we went to Carving Board for sandwiches. Since the hubs and I had just eaten we split a side salad and the Big Kahuna which is ahi tuna seared rare, cucumbers, seaweed, tomatoes, red onions, and their spread on a yummy brioche bun.

I loved the flavors of this and how well everything melded together. The side salad was really great too and perfectly dressed!

Post lunch our sweet tooths were coming out pretty ferociously and it was hot so of course, it was the ideal day for something cold and creamy! Our friends had just told us about SomiSomi and how good the taiyaki was so we couldn’t resist.

The taiyaki was chewy and crunchy and it was a perfect shell for the creamy soft serve. I ended up going with the ube flavor and the hubs got the milk flavor. Both were delicious!

Don’t kill me for this, but I think I may prefer taiyaki over a waffle cone now…

Have you ever had taiyaki with soft serve? Do you prefer it over the waffle cone?? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Hiking for Bondi Harvest

Okay we didn’t actualllyyy hike for Bondi Harvest, but we did eat at Bondi after a nice long, exhausting hike.

But first, we fueled up at Starbucks with their egg white and spinach wraps-they are so good, but boy do they stay hot like a hot pocket!

We decided to hike the Los Liones Canyon Trailhead and it was so gorgeous. You go uphill the whole hike, but the gorgeous views made all that legwork worth it. Besides that you get rewarded with a nice downhill stroll when you are heading back to the car 😉

Post-hike we wanted something wholesome and nourishing-Bondi seemed like a good choice. Hubs got the Bondi Breakfast, I got the Whirley’s Bowl, and we shared the Papaya Fruit Bowl.

The Bondi Breakfast-simple, healthy, delicious and that bread was hella’ hardy.

Whirley’s Bowl-Pretty large piece of tilapia with cauliflower rice, avocado, yogurt tartar, slaw and salsa.

The Papaya Fruit Bowl though was my absolute favorite part of the meal. This was a sweet papaya filled with coconut vanilla chia seed pudding, a scoop of acai, berries and mint.

It was so sweet and refreshing and light-such a great way to end our meal! Ever since we had this I have been wanting to go back and eat like 3 of them. So, so good!

Weekend

I LOVE weekends especially when the hubs and I are off together! We always get into some shenanigans and eat some fun things!

Here’s a weekend recap:

We started Saturday with a workout and brunch! Brunch included breakfast burritos (veggie and hot link-hot link was the fave)

IMG-20180207-WA0017

and shared a donut all from Cofax

We ended up walking around the area for a while and checked out some fun shops and ran into this cool huge tree–this pic isn’t doing justice to how big it really was.

After all that walking I was craving some ice-cream and this place really hit the spot!

IMG-20180207-WA0009

Since brunch was so late we didn’t have too much of an appetite by the time it was dinner so we had a meal of bread, butter, brie, and olives. I was floored my husband was down to have this as a meal…but I think he enjoyed it 🙂

We ended up catching a comedy show at the Comedy Store! The hubs is a fan of Chris D’elia and that’s the main reason we picked this specific show.

IMG-20180207-WA0007

We ended up staying up pretty late and so we got kind of a late start Sunday morning. We woke up and went to workout.

Post workout we grabbed McDonald’s. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since we’ve had Mickey D’s, but I will say the fries are still bomb!

IMG-20180207-WA0004

Post Mickey D’s we went for a nice hike. It was such a gorgeous day and we wanted to be as active as possible!

IMG-20180207-WA0003

Look at us looking our best! HA!

That’s my “I’m on top of the world” pose

The hike was also to prepare us for these donuts from DK Donuts…

We picked up some groceries and drove home to chill and relax before the work week! I cannot remember to save my life what we ended up eating that night, but I’m gonna say it was something low-key.

What did you guys do this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!
