None of the restaurants below are new to me, they are actually 2 of my all time favorites, but I wanted to share some new items I tried at each spot that I loved.

RANCHO LEWIS | We tried the chili con queso and it was incredible. We also shared the tortilla soup which had such amazing flavors. Highly recommend both!

167 Raw– Ya’ll know this is one of my most favorites spots. I love everything on the menu here. Normally we split the lobster roll but the past two times we have shared the swordfish pastrami sandwich and it is AMAZING.

T H I N G S I ‘M C O O K I N G

Easy Cucumber Salad – simply slice cucumbers and toss with champagne vinegar. Rice wine vinegar also works. Add Trader Joe’s EBB Seasoning and Green Goddess Seasoning.

Build Your Own Taco Salad – a family favorite dinner. Pile on any ingredients you love. Try adding sunflowers seeds they give a fun crunch and saltiness.

The best Turkey Sandwich – Daves Killer Seed Bread toasted with provolone cheese + turkey + arugula + sprouts + pickled red onions + dijon

Tuscan Kale Salad + Grilled Chicken + Roasted Broccoili with Tahini Sauce and toasted panko breadcrumbs.

LMNT Electrolyte Packets – I used to drink Liquid Iv and then learned it had of added sugars in it. I did some research and found these are some of the cleanest electrolyte packs. I try and drink one a day. They have sodium, potassium and magnesium.

Ribbed Glasses– just ordered 4 of these ribbed glasses and love them.

Blue Maxi Dress – I own this in green and when I saw this royal blue color I knew I needed it. I love this brand and this particular dress style. I wear a small in this style.

Ruffle Sandals- so excited for these for Spring!

One Love Organics Cleansing Oil – This is my third purchase of this cleansing oil. It is the best for removing make up and moisturizing your face. It also smells like a tropical vacation.

Terra Kaffe Coffee Machine– I plan to do a full post on this machine but I purchased this after Christmas and we are thrilled with it. A bit of a learning curve but now we have it down and I look forward to my coffee so much each morning.

R E A D I N G + W A T C H I N G + L I S T E N I N G

I just finished listening to Demi Moore’s Audio book Inside Out and loved it. I have been very into celebrity auto biographies read by the celebrities themselves. Her story was so crazy and sad. Really enjoyed it.

I also read In 5 Years and Loved it. Such a great read. This is a book about friendship, love, and fate. I really liked this author’s style of writing she made the characters very relatable.

LISTENING – I really enjoyed the Goop podcast where Gwyneth interviews Kim Kardashian.
