Some people believe that you have to give up all junk foods when you go vegan, but that is simply not true! Today, I had the best burger together with a few friends of mine at Feed the Earthlings on the Gold Coast. It’s amazing that they are able to create burgers that taste so legit – with melted cheese and everything! We also had super yummy garlic bread, and I know from a earlier visit that they make the best ham & cheese pizza I have ever tasted!
The place is so charming as well! It doesn’t look super fancy or anything like that. It’s just this little place with a few tables outside, but the atmosphere is so good and the staff is very friendly! They started up only a few months ago, but they already have heaps of loyal customers. I’m not surprised if they open up a bigger restaurant soon. Yesterday, it was apparently so crowded there that people had to wait in line for over an hour just to order.. I think that if people are willing to stand in a line for over a hour to just get a burger, they know that it’s a REALLY good burger they are getting!
So if you are on the Gold coast – hit them up!
I have gotten a few questions about how I prepare myself for a workout, so I thought I could share the answer here for everybody to see. Let’s get into it!
I’m definitively a morning person, no doubt. Therefore, I try to schedule my workout sessions to the morning so I don’t end up skipping them.. I have come to realize that I’m just not one of those persons that can slip right into their running shoes (or gym shoes) after a long day and smash out a workout.. All I want to do is relax!
So how do I prepare myself for a workout?
The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is to take a big sip of apple cider vinegar. It’s good for your digestion as it gives it a kick start! Then I reach for something to eat. I usually end up eating some fresh fruits because nothing taste better than fruits in the morning, am I right? Fruit is also great because it hydrates your body, gives you instant energy and doesn’t fill you up too much. Too much food before a workout is not a good idea – I’m talking from experience.. Then I sit down for a while, read some blogs, catch up on some homework or watch pointless YouTube videos until the food have digested a little bit. Then I’m ready to get moving! No supplements or anything fancy required.
