I lucked out last night and had this ah-maze-ing dinner at Barbuto. Seriously so delicious, I’m not joking. I started with a grapefruit salad and then ordered the Seabeam as an entree. The fish comes whole (eyes and all) so I got to cut off the head and take off the spine. There is no harm in playing with your food as an adult!
Fun Fact: if you are stranded on an island, eat the eyeballs of fish for hydration. (Yes I learned this last night…and no I did not eat them, I had a glass of water / wine in front of me so I was all set)
Dessert was an indulgence but well worth it: coffee semifredo icecream, lemon almond pound cake and mint gelato. Mm mm. No worries! I split this between 5 people, but I wish it was all for me 🙂
After my extra-large dins last night, I started off the morning on the right foot with a killer spin workout (I created 40 wats of energy on the new Green Revolution bikes!) and a protein shake:
1 C organic skim milk, 1 Scoop vanilla protein powder, 2 T ground flax, handful of frozen cranberries. This was delicious, and pink!
What is your take on protein powder? Is it chemicals? Is it better to get protein from “real” foods? I don’t know that much/anything about it so any information would be helpful and interesting!
Great to be back folks!
