Shakes, Burgers & Fries


I started off my weekend cozying up to the documentary called Food Inc. (Hahaha, some serious #nerdalert going on!) I have wanted to watch this for a really long time, so I decided to pop it in and cuddle on the coach! <3 It was sooo cold last week!! But I'm happy to have spent it indoors mainly! Umm.. so after watching Food Inc, it further confirmed why we, as consumers, need to be more demanding that the FDA be more honest and regulatory of their labelling laws, so we know exactly what is in our food. Without it, consumers are pretty much helpless, and that is not a position I feel comfortable with at all. :/ So it definitely got me worked up about food and all that jazz. And its definitely starting to push me towards a more vegetarian/vegan diet as well, although that is supadupa hard for me cause I love my gelato. :X But slowly and surely I'm probably going to switch over to a more veggie/vegan diet. I highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in learning more about the food industry, and how our foods are being made/processed and the underlying costs that we create without being conscious of what the food industry is doing, and what our choices have to do with that.

haha okay, so enough of that ranting ness, I could prolly go on and on about the documentary, really opened my eyes further on food, and nutrition and etc. I had a really nice weekend, doing work, working out A LOT and trying new recipes for my shakes. lol!


{Ingredients: 300 ml of water, 2 Scoops of French Vanilla Herbalife Shake, 1 small cup of blueberries and 1 banana. It was so delicious. }

 
{The masterpiece, I usually have a hard time creating yummy shakes with fruits & other additions, but it was really successful for me! haha } 

I also got the chance to try this fantastic restaurant called Firefly, its located in Dupont Circle. I loved the atmosphere, it was cozy, quaint and had a really homey feel to it. And I loved their punch of the day, which I can't even tell you what exactly was in it but it had whisky, earl grey tea, and tasted like a refreshing ice tea with a hint of spice at the end. And their burger and fries were to die for, not to mention their beer-battered pickle. <3 Their ingredients were really fresh and really tasted delicious. It was also great to reacquaint myself with old friends, and try a new restaurant!






How was your weekend? I hope it was awesome and that the rest of your week is fantabulouss!! <3

It is scary what they do with our food in this country. That is why I try to buy local and from local farmers as often as possible. Looks like you had a nice weekend, and that burger looks amazing.
