A raw adventure!!!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be a jet setter and cruise down to Southern California for a night.  It was such a quick trip, but I made the best of every moment that I had.  A friend of ours was driving down so I joined him on the ride and stayed on his boat in Marina Del Ray.

I convinced Eric to join me when we got into town on Saturday night at a raw restaurant that I have heard a TON about and follow in Instagram.  It's located in Santa Monica and is called M.A.K.E.  Oh my lord, this place was off the hook!  I figured since I was there I would take full advantage and participated in a 7 course tasting.  It was fantastic!  Such a wonderful way to sample a variety of menu items.  One of my favorites was by far the potstickers.  They were absolutely to die for and if I went back I would order these again hands down!

The final dish that rocked my socks off was the dessert.  

A churro ice cream with chocolate ganache.  Ugh, I am drooling right now just thinking about it!  So many times I think people hear that I like to eat raw and think that I must really be deprived but when you are eating food like this it is the exact opposite!  I hope to one day have a dehydrator so I can expand the raw food I can make at home!

The following morning I woke up and took Eric's bike for a ride.  I found a local juice shop, got a fresh juice and then headed to the beach.  I sat in this very spot for at least an hour!  It was so nice to just relax, listen to the waves come in and out and not have a care in the world.

Since I have never been to this area of SoCal I took my time going down the Venice boardwalk and taking in all the sites.  Boy are there some freaky sites on that boardwalk!

Overall, it was such a nice quick trip.  Good company, good food and good relaxtion!!
