It might seem a tad inconsistent that I often refer to my abstention of fats, sugar, and gluten while my recent posts have all been full of decadent junk food. This is because, while I am diligent about my healthy diet and I prefer whole foods to processed ones, I am not militant about it–especially when I’m on vacation. The food I eat on an everyday basis is very boring: a smoothie for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and usually some assortment of veggies and legumes for dinner. It’s just food that is generally not very blog-worthy. When I’m on vacation or there is a special occasion, I am more than happy to indulge in treats.
Today I needed to recover from the boozery of yesterday. I started the day out with a quick four mile run and then met my friend, Jeanine, for a class at Pop Physique in Studio City. I had the Kelp Noodle Bowl and Jeanine had the The Power of Green Salad (pics are from my crappy cell phone camera.) Both are nutritional powerhouses. My dish had ginger, sea vegetables, and sprouts among other superfoods, and was extremely tasty.
Both were great options for a post-workout dish. You don’t want to negate all the hard work you just did with an unhealthy meal! I love love love that the kelp bowl comes with a mango-sesame dressing that is oil-free. Hugo’s has so many great healthy options and they also have choices for days when you want to indulge. Regardless of what you order, you can be sure you will be getting good clean, organic food at Hugo’s.
