Fresh is best... but I've been sticking to a grocery budget for a while now. Sometimes, that means I'm eating frozen fruit and veggies all week. Not my favorite, but it's still a healthier option and it saves some skrilla (that means money). Come on, a bag of frozen cauilflower is $1, but fresh was $6. These things add up! Do you budget? What are some other frugal tips you can share? I'd seriously love to hear (read) allllll the ideas!
feeling that ice cream 😬 // I’m gonna be real with y’all. I had that leftover ‘za for lunch, took a trip to the new scoop parlor after, and wolfed a banana oat cookie before my workout. translation: I’ve had pizza, ice cream, AND cookies today. kind of without even realizing it. and as delicious as the ice cream was, I definitely should’ve waited until after dinner. I was absolutely smoked by the time I showed up to my workout. dragging, yawning, wanting to curl up on the mats and take a siesta. I regret nothing but am also really stoked for this dinner to level me out!
Had a great an affordable dinner yesterday at a small dumpling shop near Kichijoji station. Their most popular item was a 5 giant vegetable gyoza which were so delicious. The filling felt meaty yet clean, bursting with juices and a nice sweet and savoury flavour. Simply delicious, and it was cooked in those really cool old school cast iron gyoza pans . They were very generous with the toppings for the ramen. The Shoyu ramen was delicious but the meat was cold, and the miso ramen with spicy green onions turned it into a weird Chinese/Korean tasting ramen which was a shame. Overall, dumplings 8/10, ramen 6/10.
