Meditation On My Meals II

Hey readers who are no longer in school, does it suck as much as I imagine to no longer have mandatory vacations like spring and summer break? Yeah, I’m going to just imagine you all just nostalgically looked off into the distance remembering the times where you got super drunk in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico or Miami, Florida. Ok, ok, yeah, I know, not everyone goes somewhere beachy for their college breaks, myself included, but you got to admit there are enough tipsy college students roaming the warm beaches during these times of the year to make us all believe it’s the norm. Anyways, I visited San Francisco, California with Kevin (the handsome model in my photos below), where I got to show him around my favorite places in the city and introduce him to my parents. So I’m going to show you my favorite restaurant in San Francisco, a cool spot located in Hayes Valley named Souvla. It’s a cool, hip, very San Francisco vibe Greek Restaurant. In the spirit of San Francisco, they try to get most of their meat and produce from local and sustainable sources. It’s so nice to be able to go to a restaurant where I can say that whatever I’m eating isn’t going to hurt body.

pork, minted greek yogurt, cherry tomato, pickled red onion, cucumber, feta cheese, kale, and topped with microgreens [feat. Kevin who got the lamb salad]

Here’s some more yummy food we ate while in my favorite city and a glimpse into the rest of our adventure:

green tea, strawberry, and taro flavored mochi + sencha green tea

California Burger (burger topped with arugula, caramelized onions, and a fried egg), brussels sprouts, lemonade, garlic fries

Lily Pond, Golden Gate Bridge

“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it all in at once.” Audrey Hepburn

Our trip was a much needed a break for my mind and body, as exhausting as it was at times going to so many places. You can even tell in the voice I use in this post, that I’m more myself and I’m coming back. That means more blogs posts, hooray!
