Happy Saturday! Hubby K and I were out for the whole day! Wanna see what we did? Ok, worry not I’m going to tell it all 🙂
First I did my morning workout from bodyrock.tv and had my post workout snack/breakfast: 2 beef patties and one small sweet potato plus my usual weekend loose leaf tea.
While sitting on my stability ball.
After Hubby K wake up (finally!) we ventured out to Farmer’s Market to haul some strawberries and eggs.
This was my first time purchasing pastured raised eggs (non soy fed) and I’ve been hearing all the hypes on Paleo/Primal blogs how great pastured eggs are compared to the conventional ones. Let’s see if it’s true.
Then we went to 99 Ranch market to get some essentials for my upcoming cooking experiment. Fresh galangal, fresh turmeric, fresh lemon grass (all essential ingredients for Indonesian food) and “kluwak” nuts. And I also bought coconut milk and 2 Japanese yams.
After we came back and put the groceries away, we went to The Counter, custom built burger all the way down in Newport Beach.
First time I read about The Counter from Nom Nom Paleo and I’ve been wanting to try it. When I found out they also have locations in Southern California, I decided to give it a try.
The good thing about them is they’re emphasizing that all the animals they use are humanely raised and handled. Plus you could custom build your burger to suit your taste. So here’s mine:
I chose my burger to be in a bowl (no bun). Both Hubby K and I ordered 1 lb burger -LOL and they’re HUGE! Just look at these!
Overall, the burger was super juicy and tasty! The location was a bit far from our place, but once in a while, we might come by again and for sure I don’t think I’d order another 1lb burger again.
One other main thing we drove all the way down to Newport Beach was because of this store!
I’ve heard so many hypes about Lululemon pants that will make your butt look good, no matter what shape/size you got! Yes, they’re pricey but it’s worth it. Okay, so I grabbed one pant and a top and tried it on.
My thought? I’d say they do have nice material and feel very comfortable. However, in the end I didn’t buy it. Why? Well, I just didn’t think I need an expensive workout clothing if I only doing my workout at home. Besides, I didn’t see my butt looks bigger and better from what it is..LOL.
On the way back we went to Walmart and purchased our essentials. One of them was this baking dish to replace the one that broke in the oven last time.
No dinner for me…that burger really filled me up. Now going to shower and sleep.
Have you purchased/tried anything that you see on a blog? If you did, do you think it lived up to the hype?
Have a good Easter Sunday, everyone!
