I'm Back!

Dinner:
Butternut Squash "Raw"violi w/Nut Pate and Grilled Flowering Kale at Millenium
















Thursday
Brunch:

Snack:
Can of Sardines (three small fish packed in olive oil)

My friends are vegetarian and thought the whole idea of canned sardines was a little strange...boy did they miss out! Sardines are a really great source of Omega-3s and, I think, totally delicious!

Dinner:
Slice of Pizza w/Spinach, Artichoke Hearts, and Goat Cheese from Goat Hill Pizza*

We were prepping food and working on last minute wedding details, so the day sort of just flew by...dinner was a sort of afterthought...not the norm for me. So, we ate a slice of 'za at about 10pm that night. On a positive note....the crust was really thin and it was really tasty...so, at least I enjoyed it. And, no...pizza(*) is still not Paleo.

Thanks, Julia! It was pretty funny actually...we asked the doorman at our hotel for directions to the "Top of the Mark", and he just looked down at our shoes..."Ummm...you know it's uphill...right!?. To that we responded, "Oh yeah...we're fine!"...and so the journey began. We got some looks, but got a really good quad workout out of the deal...so, all in a days work!

I'd like to thank CrossFit for my ability to hike steep hills in 4" sparkly heels!
