It’s Wednesday, it’s raining and I’m kind of grumpy. Despite multiple cups of coffee, crawling back into bed seems like a much better option than braving the day. I need some sunshine in my life. And a tropical vacation. Definitely more coffee.
I just at this for breakfast. Peanut butter, honey, banana and cinnamon on whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnut bread.
Last night I met a friend for yoga and dinner. For the yoga portion of the evening, we attended “Kick Your Asana” at Charlotte Yoga. The practice featured multiple Rhianna songs while our instructor danced around the room asking us why we let fear control our lives. It was actually the perfect combination of serious and lighthearted and exactly what I needed.
My friend is Colombian and I was so excited when she suggested grabbing dinner after class at her favorite Colombian restaurant, Pio Pio.
Pio Pio is known for for their rotisserie chicken but they offer a large menu of Colombian and Peruvian cuisine. It is Columbian owned and it was so fun to hear my friend chatting away with all the staff in Spanish.
She insisted that I start with one of the juices so at her recommendation I tried the lulo juice. Lulo is a tropical fruit and popular in Colombia. It’s citrusy with a little bit of a lime flavor and was very refreshing post-yoga.
I ordered a combination that included the most amazing chicken soup, half of an avocado, rice and fried plantains. All of the meals also come with two really good sauces that you can put on the rice or plantains. This was one of the best meals that I have had out in a while and I will definitely be frequenting Pio Pio in the future. I am already craving this meal again!
And I leave you with this. While some of us have to be productive on a rainy day, this furry one will be lounging around the house hoping for a belly rub.
Have a good day!
