RA Sushi

Hello All,

Here again, with this weeks inside scoop.  A few years ago I embarked on my “sushi journey”. Prior to this I was highly opposed to eating sushi, but after one try, I’ve been hooked since. I have tried almost every sushi restaurant in the Baltimore Metropolitan area, as well as many in DC. However, I realized no matter how fancy the area the restaurant is located may be, I still found myself going back to RA Sushi. RA Sushi located in downtown baltimore offers a series of mainstream rolls, as well as many house specialized rolls. Their food is made in the most pristine environment, with the freshest products. The portions are also very filling, usually including at least eight rolls.

My favorite day to come to RA sushi is on Sunday’s. This is because during their Sunday happy hour all rolls are half off , in addition to their delicious cocktails.  RA Sushi also serves other dishes besides sushi. Their calamari is excellent and made to perfection!Despite RA’s high Zagat ratings, their food is surprisingly extremely affordable, especially during the happy hour special. With at least fifteen to twenty dollars (if not less) you are sure to get a filling meal and cocktail.

The atmosphere is relaxing despite the constant chatter. I would not necessarily recommend it for lounging but it is a nice catch-up spot for old friends or just a “chill” outing. However, not quite comfortable enough to get lost in time. ( Most likely this is intentional, because the food is delicious so they need to keep the flow of traffic going :P)

I will actually be visiting RA Sushi this Sunday… maybe I’ll see you there!

Living the Paleo Life! Week 1 Update

imagesCAKHMYM0

Hey Loves,

This past week has been pretty good! I have been privileged enough to be in residency with an awesome paleoista. When I go to the hospital cafeteria with her, I’m constantly asking, “Is this Paleo?” To my surprise, a lot of what I have been eating has already been Paleo. The only real thing I’m giving up is my rice. Ahhh! My people eat rice. I was probably conceived and birthed in a bowl of rice. I am currently in search of carb substitutes. Zucchini pasta is delicious and I was turned on to that before I tried the Paleo life. So far, I am enjoying the freedom of my bowels. Seriously though, this lifestyle choice has been great for my finicky bowels. The train always rolls on time now. I also feel that my sensitive skin is benefiting from it as well. But who knows if it is due to the diet or the fact that I am more conscious of what is in the things that I put on and in my body. Alright, gotta get back to work!

Until Next Week Darlings!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Spinach + Organic Skim Milk Cheese

Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Hey Guys on this Tasty Tuesday I wanted to share a recipe, partially stolen from an amazing Paleo cookbook that I borrowed from WeArePrimalTwo. It is called Practical Paleo. The original recipe is the Bacon Wrapped Smoky Chicken Thighs. I made it Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach and Organic Skim Cheese. My recipe is below:

Ingredients:

  • 4 skinless  boneless chicken breast
  • 8 slices of bacon, thick sliced
  • 2 tsp McCormick’s Mesquite Chicken Seasoning
  • 2 tsp of garlic
  • 8 ounces of spinach
  • 4 tablespoons of organic non fat skim cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • salt and pepper for taste

Preparation: Preheat oven to 375. Sprinkle the chicken thighs with 1 tsp of mesquite + garlic seasoning. Mix the spinach, egg white, and cheese with some salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Slice the chicken breast almost all the way through to make it look like a bun. Place some of the spinach and cheese mix in between the two “buns” and  then wrap each one in 2 strips of bacon. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Enjoy!

Yield: 4 bacon-wrapped chicken thighs

Sidenote: I paired it with Zucchini Pasta! Yummy!

Happy Eating!

To Shred or Not to Shred? That is the Ultimate Fashionista Question.

Hello Ya’ll,

   It’s been a while since I posted and I wanted to share something maybe not so new but fun and quirky in the area of fashion. This is the shredded t-shirt. This is something that you definitely need to have a strong personality for. I love this style because it’s akin to the rat tale hairstyle but a million times better, it’s business in the front and party in the back. It lets you be sexy in an understated yet attention grabbing way. This style can definitely even be worn with the weather getting cooler with a simple solid fall toned scarfed. Paired with skinny jeans and heels, you are all set. I think everyone of us has this rocker chic look inside! Try it out!

 

XoxO,
