Eating, Seeing, Doing in Phoenix

Tomorrow I head back to Chicago to a winter storm. Before I return to reality, I'd like to share some of my favorite things in Phoenix this week:

  • The avocado and kale dip at True Food Kitchen at Biltmore Fashion Park. It's delicious and comes with flax crackers instead of tortilla chips. I also had fish street tacos with beans paired with a honey lemonade. True Food is opening a location in Chicago soon, and I can't wait.

  • The view from my office building in central Phoenix. I'm on a work trip, so I haven't had the chance to hike at all, but I was tempted to leave it all behind and head to the mountain on many occasions. 
  • Spending time with family, especially my nieces and nephews! I had a dance party in my car with my oldest nephew, watched my younger nephew perform in a variety show, tried to get my oldest niece to warm up to me, and sang to my youngest niece to make her smile. 
  • Tomorrow's brunch with friends will combine my love of the best meal of the week with the coolest people I know.
  • Trying out the Orangetheory location in central Phoenix. The class was just as great, although I wasn't a fan of the older treadmills. I'm actually impressed that I managed to make it to a 6:15 a.m. class.
  • Tuesday night's dinner with my yoga friends. One of them made the prettiest  and tastiest  salad, which we ate with Spinato's Signature pizza, my favorite option on the menu, and pumpkin pie.
