I’m always thinking about my next meal.
I have a few healthy go-to recipes, and I’m always adding more. For me, food is fuel for my life of fitness and a big source of enjoyment, and I don’t have any dietary restrictions.
Whether I’m documenting my daily meals, visiting restaurants or creating new recipes, you’ll see food makes a frequent appearance on A Lady Goes West. I’m constantly taking pictures of my food and sharing them, especially on Instagram, and I’m a big fan of food prep, which I do each week. (And here’s a list of some of my quick and easy grocery staples for the week.)
Living in the the San Francisco Bay Area affords me the opportunity to eat well at many restaurants on the weekends, but I try to keep my mid-week meals home-cooked and healthy. I live by the 80/20 moderation rule, meaning I can have some dessert and wine on the weekends and not feel bad about it, and I never say no to carbs.
