I'm a little late to the game, but I finally joined the fascinating, eye-catching world of Instagram earlier this year. I am a visual person and it is amazing to see the ways people capture the world on this social media tool. Instagram is where I am spending most of my social media time these days, but I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the stuff I share on there, particularly the meals out that don't make it on to the blog when I don't have my big, fancy camera on me. Here are some of the things I have shared and if you are so inclined, follow me on Instagram.
I traveled to California at the beginning of May and it was a week long of working out, eating out, and green juicing.
Lunch with my mom at In-N-Out Burger. I had the cheeseburger animal-style and well done fries. I miss this place all the time.
POT at the Line Hotel. Get thee there immediately.
Sqirl. The Malva pudding cake is pure sugar heaven and a good way to balance the perceived healthiness of the crispy brown rice bowl with egg.
Waffles Cafe is the home of the wonut, but they also make a mean chicken and bacon waffles dish.
Green Shakshuka from The Kitchn is to die for. Make it immediately and then make it again.
Joy the Baker's strawberry chopped salad.
H.C. and I visited Three Dots and a Dash for some tiki cocktails and followed it up with spicy miso ramen at Ramen-San.
Maude's Liquor Bar and RM Champagne Salon.
High Five Ramen. Get there early to avoid a long wait since there are only fifteen seats in the whole restaurant.
Sunda. Definitely order the brussels sprouts salad if you go.
Taverna 750, one of my favorite brunch deals in Chicago.
black bean and tomato quinoa salad will help right the ship. This time I doubled the black beans and lime zest, but reduced the oil to 1 1/2 teaspoons, the juice to 1/2 lime, and left out the sugar.
