We spent most of the day eating in Houston! Lunch was at Hubbell & Hudson Bistro and dinner was at the Paleo-inspired Corner Table restaurant, where we met up with Josh from Slim Palate (enter the giveaway for a signed copy of his book here) and chatted to Alyssa Dole (the Pastry Chef at Corner Table).
Second day in Napa, staying at the really cool Andaz Hotel in downtown Napa.
Breakfast:1 boiled egg, which I had picked up from Whole Foods the night before and stored in our mini fridge. I also had a decaf with some ghee in it (I bought the ghee at Whole Foods as well). [click to continue…]
Breakfast: It’s always tough getting up on a Monday morning, so I needed a cup of Bone Broth (recipe here) and a cup of Ultimate Paleo Coffee (recipe here). If you’ve been reading my daily meal updates, then you’ve probably discovered a pattern in what I have for breakfast! In fact, my biggest worry about traveling to Napa on Tuesday is my lack of bone broth! (Jeremy usually has something different like scrambled eggs, fried eggs, or leftovers for breakfast. My parents always have an avocado and a boiled egg each for breakfast.)
Today was packed: DMV in the morning, rock climbing at Planet Granite, Goodeggs pickup, and Whole Foods shopping in the afternoon and evening. There was also quite a lot of recipe posting and cooking in between all of that!
I spent most of today processing over 1500 photos that I took in India! I felt like I was going blind after the process. My other great achievement of the day was teaching my mum and uncle how to use Instagram and Tumblr AND getting Jeremy to eat 10 pieces of grassfed beef liver! Phew!
Didn’t do too much cooking today – we spent most of Valentine’s day in the beautiful Point Lobos State Reserve near Monterey (see photo slide show below). We saw rabbits, 3 whales (my first time!), several types of beautiful birds, some deer right next to our car, and some sea lions in the water.
Breakfast: I had 2 bowls of bone broth mixed with chicken broth (both had been simmering in different slow cookers) (recipes here and here) followed by a cup of black coffee. Jeremy had a bowl of chili (leftovers) (recipe here).
We started the day off a bit late again. Trying to get back to a good sleeping schedule tonight! The slow cooker had been going, so more chicken broth (recipe here) seemed to be a good start. We also finished off more of the leftover chili (recipe here) and made some beef sautéed with zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, and salt (it was a modified version of this recipe here).
