|Cruising the PCH in a convertible - yes, I was wearing a tank top in January.|
Last week, I travelled to Los Angeles and San Diego to visit family. My sister lives in Los Angeles, and my cousin lives near San Diego. While I had the occasional splurge (hello pecan-salted-caramel sticky bun), I did my best to eat healthy while traveling, and I found some wonderful options! The warm sunshine felt great on my skin, we went to the beach more days than not, did a couple of hikes in the canyons, and it was wonderful to see some family members that I don't see very often. A long drive from San Francisco - about 6 hours down and 8 hours coming home - but it was worth it!
|Lunch at Lemonade - wonderful salad options of all kinds! I want one of these to open near me.|
L to R: Arugula, Roasted Broccoli, Quinoa Tabouleh, Watermelon Radish
