Lauren posted all about our Expo West Experience, but she left out our “adventure” getting there.
Here’s a travel day follow up, because there are always things (monsoons, traffic, room reservations gone missing) that throw off the best laid plans.
Foodtrainers’ LA picks:
As predicted, we omeletted it up with veggies and hot sauce (greens instead of toast), and tons of coffee. Lauren whipped out pre-flight probiotic coconut shots and I drank a liter ++ of water (thank god for aisle seats).
We had our nutcases, filled with living organic sprouted pecans, while plotting our Pre-Summer Squeeze Program. get excited.
Heaven is Gjelina in Santa Monica. Lauren and I could have spent all day there tasting — and sipping — but the winners were the tuna conserva over arugula (almost Nicoise but better), and the asparagus with crispy sunny side egg.
We were full but had to make a pit stop at the Bulletproof mecca. While the café isn’t anything too exciting, we went for small bulletproof coffees and were all caffeinated for our 3 hours in traffic (not still annoyed, or anything).
You know we love our moon juice dusts so we were excited to see what was in store at their home base. We saved our purchases for breakfast pre-expo – Lauren raved about her Fennel, Frond & Herb (Fennel, Cucumber, Green Apple, Basil), the Golden Milk was delicious too.
We found the one “cool” spot in Anaheim near the expo and while food was forgettable, the spicy margaritas hit the spot. We have to end a travel day with tequila; it’s a Foodtrainers rule.
So that’s our travel day recap, what are your fave LA spots?
