Evening all ☺
I just came back from a very relaxing yoga class. I never actually loved yoga, though I have been able to appreciate it, as I always thought it was too boring and slow and it never really took my mind to an escape like an more up-beat workout can. But lately I’ve truly come to enjoy it. As cliché as it sounds, the breathing and stillness helps me a lot in stressed times, and I’am able to take my brain away and focus completely on something else for one our. The hard thing is just to really commit to the “zone”, because if your not totally focused on your breathing you wouldn’t be able to do the exercises. Or at least I wouldn’t. Who ever is saying yoga is relaxing is for sure doing another kind of yoga than this one, because holy cow your core is sore afterwords!
Today yoga especially helped my, because I was just before having a nervous break down over my mac, which have decided to shut down every half an hour. Earlier I talked 1,5 hours (!) which an apple store man, who helped my delete all kinds of things (I’am not a technical smart person as you can here) and also ran 100 difference test/programs, restarted it, but nothing helped. So now I think the only way is to purchase a new one… I mean it’s an investment I would have to do sometime anyway, but it’s just seems like so annoying money (that I don’t really have) to use at the moment.
Anyway, I want to share with you this amazing food experience I had. Since I’am having visitors all over this month, I’am eating out a lot – which I don’t mind at all! Other than it’s perhaps getting a bit expensive in the long run.
But when my girlfriend was here, we eat at Ottolenghi, which I heard should be really veggie friendly and also have the best desserts (important)! They have tapas-like dishes, I mean in size, as they have nothing to do with the spanish tapas other than that. Half of the food comes from the counter, where they have amazing cold dishes and the other half they prepare hot. There is both meat and veggie choices available, but mostly vegetarian.
The food was innovative and different from what I usually experience when eating out, and all the dishes had so much taste. It was really really good! I don’t even know if I thought the hot food was better than the cold, it was all fantastic.
Even though it isn’t that cheap – a dish costs between 10-12 £ – trust me it’s worth it. And also they serve the best bread ever for free – and as much as you like.
Perhaps the best thing (only because I’am the biggest dessert person) was the choco dessert. Actually the place should be known for their bakery and cake department – which explains the amazing bread.
The dessert I got was a baked dark chocolate on a thin layer of salted-caramel crust, with honey glassed nuts and mascarpone on top. WOW – please do your self the favour of trying this.
I would consider just going there for desserts someday – if I feel I can’t afford the food as well 😉 But both the food and dessert is worth trying, and is better than almost all of the restaurants I have tried here in London – and I have tried a lot of awesome places already!
Well, now I will hope off to bed – my body is already in sleep mod after yoga. – sleep nice everyone and talk to you soon.
