earlier this month I met up with J and L for lunch at a new Peruvian restaurant Che. It was fabulous! I highly recommend and if you decide to try it, invite me …
J and I split the ceviche nikei (tuna in a tamarind leche de tigre, avocado, jicama,red onion yam )
this was incredible. Have you ever seen the show on the Food Network, The Best Thing I Ever Ate? Chefs describe in detail with lots of ohhh and ahhhs the best thing they ever ate. We could have been on that show. That’s all we kept saying with every bite.
Then I had the chupe soup (mussels, calamari, white fish and prawns, with rice, potatoes and egg in a cream aji Amarillo broth)
Seafood and soup, seriously one of my favourite combinations.
Both J and L had lomo salt ado (traditional Peruvian style stir-fry of sautéed beef sirloin, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic and soy sauce, with fried potatoes)
so good … they let me try some, or didn’t shoo my hand and fork away when it attacked their meal.
as part of bootcamp we get a 4-week nutrition plan. The first 3 days are a detox.
It’s day one and I want to eat my hand.
Green smoothie (spinach, pineapple, blueberries)
Snack … water
Lunch … 2 cups of veggies sliced and a cup of fruit
Snack … water
Dinner … 2 cups of mixed greens and a cup of veggies, 1 tbs dressing
… more water
I was okay until dinner then I turned evil. I ate my salad and was more hungry than when I started!
I think I’ll go to bed at 8 in case I act on the thoughts in my head. Plus I have so much to look forward to tomorrow … same as today minus the fruit
Back to work … my first full 5 day week since Dec 9. What I know for sure, without a shadow of a doubt, I am meant to be rich and not work.
I wasn’t born into money, no silver spoon, I am not getting rich from working or my looks, so I must be meant to marry it. So if you are loaded drop me a line, or send a plane a pick me up.
Work alone would have been enough of a shock to the system, but I have 6:00am bootcamp Tue/Wed/Thu. I was in such a fog on Wednesday I sat in a meeting for an hour and can’t remember one thing that happened. Yesterday I didn’t want to run after work, but G dragged me out. I think the run gave me my second wind to get through today, just about. Tonight, tonight I have big plans … pjs by 6:00pm! I am giddy with excitement.
