I’m out of my best yogurt supplies! B-fast today was a mess with the rest of my strawberries, half banana, some figgies & kashi.
For lunch, I started with a salad that was a duplicate of the one I ate last night. So easy to make two at once and eat one the next day!
I also dug into the remaining 6 inches from the sub I got yesterday. Usually these still taste great but the bread was SO SOGGY. Ick. So I just ate the turkey and some of the veggies and left the bread.
Instead of bread, I had some pretzels. More than this one cup to make up for my lack of carbolicious goodness :)
Of course, I was v. hungry by the end of work, so I ate the other half of my breakfast banana to help tide me over.
Still not enough! I ended up skipping the gym and went home for an early dinner. I started with frozen edamame.
Then came a gorgeous, crispy slice of red pepper!
I also rolled out the last piece of my pizza dough from Friday. I got 3 meals out of this recipe! I topped the honey whole wheat crust with grape tomatoes, mushrooms, goat cheese, rosemary and sea salt.
After dinner, I decided to try Yogurt Stop for some froyo! I got chocolate, peanut butter, and vanilla bean. I always choose chocolate over vanilla, but this vanilla bean was awesome!! Mango and rainbow sprinkles were the perfect toppings, plus a cube of red velvet (which surprisingly wasn’t that good, weird…).
Okay, does anyone else think this is the most random frozen yogurt logo ever?! Welcome to Hollywood!
Right now I am stuffed to the max and watching the last five minutes of TBL…freaking!!!! How cute was Mike talking with his brother, by the way??
And now, for my exciting food news!!! Foodbuzz sent out an email last week annoucing that they have again partnered with Pebble Beach Food & Wine and are sending 8 featured publishers to the Lexus Grand Tasting Event.

Pebble Beach is in Carmel, CA, about 5-6 hours from LA. I am planning to just wake up super early and make a day of it!! I think the long drive will definitely be worth the fun day, don’t you agree?! I put down to attend Saturday, but I am still waiting on final confirmation of the day, when I will find out which chefs I will get to see in action. WOW!
