What I Ate Wednesday #64: The First Weekend

I’m here, I promise! I haven’t forgotten about you! It has been a crazy couple of weeks, though, with the move. But we’re in California now and we’ve had a great time eating. I mean.. exploring! 😉 That said, I have to share the first weekend of tasty treats we’ve found!

And that’s not even all of it! I’ve had some pretty fabulous lunches as I’ve been out in San Francisco looking for a place to live. If you’re dying to see some salads [which you really should be..] you can check them out on Instagram. You’ll also see my workouts so I can keep up with eating this way 😉
