Pace (boyfrenn) and I went to health blogger Mecca today. Did you know that the Whole Foods in Austin was the first? My favorite part is the dessert bar. The tres leches is the best dessert I have ever had in my life. And there is a vat of condensed milk next to it so you can over-saturate your saturated cake.
The tres leches is the bottom left…
We also went to Daily Juice, an old Austin favorite for smoothies, juices, and health concoctions. We always get The Chronic. Douchey name, delicious drink. It has frozen bananas, hemp milk, agave nectar, hemp seeds, hemp oil, and hemp protein. That may not sound delicious, but it is, even without the THC. 😉

This post is very Austin-y. Last night for dinner we went out, since Pace is in the middle of moving and we could not cook. We decided to try Odd Duck Farm to Trailer. Its a cute little trailer that only sells dishes made from local produce and meats. Trailer eateries have literally taken over Austin. We have trailers for snow cones, cake balls, southern food, vegan food, Indian food, Mexican food, kebabs, tacos, German food, cupcakes, mini pies, fro-yo, fried cones, chocolate dipped frozen bananas, and literally everything else you could think of – or not. Its so hip that pretty soon the fixies are gonna sell their downtown flats and open up a trailer park commune.
We got the…
Grilled watermelon with cherry tomato relish and goat ricotta: This was just alright. Nothing to write home about.
Grilled parmesan eggplant and summer squash: Pretty tasty, but I could make that at home easy.
Half of quail with potato and caper aioli: This was very tasty! The aioli is something I must learn to recreate.
Pork belly slider: This was delicious! The bread was moist and the relish atop the pork was a great compliment to the pork.
This is Pace…
Overall, the food was pretty good, but I am not sure I would return unless they had something that sounded like it was meant for me. Ya know.
Im hoping to get a peanut butter muffin post up here soon! I am going to Tibet for 3 weeks in 5 days, and I wont be able to post while I am gone 😦 . I had planned on getting a bunch of posts scheduled for while I am away, but since I haven’t been able to cook, it doesn’t look like that will be possible. Would anyone like to do a guest post while I am gone?
I love the health/food blog world. 🙂
