Lately I am trying hard to catch up on all the raw fish I couldn’t eat for nine months. I eat pounds of raw fish weekly, in the form of sushi but preferably in the form of a poke bowl.
Poke is pronounced as Poh-kee, and it’s a Continue reading

Summer is still in full swing in California and to be honest I don’t want to think of pumpkins, while the whole internet already filled with autumn food such as pumpkins, cranberries, apples and oh, pumpkins!
I really don’t want to think about it just yet 😉 I embrace summer squash a bit as long as they are here in the store, so yay for zucchini! Last week we ate a whopping Continue reading
Every Wednesday morning I go on a hike, that’s my main workout during the week. Up and down the Santa Monica Mountains in 1,5 hour. Bam! 1200 calories burned! Every other weekend P and I also do a hike and twice a week I do some short workout routines on YouTube.
I tried to do a walk three times a week in the neighborhood and although I liked it it was so time consuming! Since I started hiking on my own I look forward to Wednesdays. Ha yes! I’m looking forward to Hump Day 😉 I’ll bet I’m the only one!

Don’t you just love going out for some sushi? But be honest, how many times is it a disapointment? The rice is tasteless, the roll isn’t firm enough so it falls apart halfway to your mouth leaving soy sauce stains on your white shirt, or the salmon taste like water.
Personally I like the salmon sushi rolls the most. With fresh salmon that is, without the cream cheese. Typically American, who made that up?! That’s not a very Japanese combination, isn’t it?
Did you ever tried to make sushi yourself? Well I did and it’s a hell of a job and leaves you with enormous amounts of sushi. Continue reading
