Finding a restaurant that my whole family likes is always a problem when looking for somewhere to eat. We had seen this restaurant in our area and finally decided to try it out! Its a healthy vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurant and I had the best pizza I had ever had! Our waiter was so friendly and made our experience easy and welcoming. I cant wait to go back!

The past 10 days that I've been in Los Angeles, I went out to eat alot so I decided to dedicate a post all about some of the restaurants I visited on my trip.

Gaby's: Venice
This is a great place for great healthy Mediterranean food in Venice with patio seating and very nice servers. I even received some rolls(pictured below in the left corner)by an elderly woman who works there, I think she thought I was someone else, oh well! 
Cheesecake Factory:Marina Del Rey
This is my absolute favorite Cheesecake factory locations that I've ever visited. It has a great view of the marina, boats and people enjoying the beach. 

Urth Cafe: Santa Monica&Pasadena
Anyone who lives in LA knows about Urth Cafe and it wasn't until my last trip that I visited this restaurant and I now know what all the hype was about. Its a great place to grab a bite to eat in the nicely shaded outdoor patio with friends. They have several locations such as in Beverly Hill and downtown but I specifically visited the ones in Santa Monica and Pasadena. 

Pressed Juicery: Santa Monica
A great place for overpriced fresh juices with extremely friendly employees! 

In-n-Out: Westchester
The only burger place worth going in California, I've been here way too many times while living in LA and I believed it deserved a shout out! If you are vegetarian like me, then I suggest ordering the grilled cheese or animal style fries(which is part of the secret menu). 



I'll be turning 18 this Wednesday, which I cant even believe! Its so exciting but a little scary, as I get older and face new challenges and adventures in my life. So in celebration, my family and I had a pre-birthday lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, we have been coming to this restaurant since I was little whether it was to celebrate our birthdays or graduations and we always have a great time! On my birthday I'll be heading off to Los Angeles for 10 days and I plan to do a lot of blog posts of my trip, so be on the look out for those coming in the next two weeks!

Skinnylicious Veggie Burger
Dads' lunch: Chicken Enchiladas
Cheesecake would have to be my favorite type of cake so choosing which cheesecake to get is always the hardest part of coming here! 
We ended up getting the Oreo Chessecake and the Orginal to share

Shake Shack

On Monday which was Columbus Day weekend we headed over to DC to try Shake Shack on F Street which has been getting a lot of news. The restaurant was packed when we entered and the employees were all very friendly.

I ordered the 'Shroom Burger which was the only veggie burger and is made out of mushrooms. I would definitely recommend it, its fried with mushroom and cheese cooked inside of it. The fries were also really good and I can say its the best veggie burger I've had in DC.

Thanks for giving it a read!


Homemade Granola

This morning I decided I wanted to make some healthy banana granola. I had learned this recipe from +beautycrush! It was so easy to make and tastes delicious! Granola can be paired with so many things like yogurt, waffles, or pancakes. I modified the recipe with ingredients I had on hand. The ingredients I used were:
 1 ripe banana
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 packet of flax seed oats
1 packet of maple&brown oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp organic brown sugar
1 tsp peanut butter
2 tsp almond oil
1 tsp olive oil
pinch of salt

After cooling I put into this cute little mason jar.
I used the granola in my Greek yogurt this morning with mixed berries, cinnamon and a drizzle of honey:) 

Yogurt and Chai Tea(Celestial Teas)

Preheat oven to 350 °f. I put the banana in the oven so it could soften and mashed it with all my wet ingredients in a large bowl and then added the dry ingredients. You may want to add the oats as you go and mix until almost dry. After mixing put it onto a large baking tray and spread the mixture around. After about 10 minutes or until granola is golden brown flip it so the bottom side can cook. Leave it in for another 10 minutes, let it cool and enjoy!
