Paleo Pop-Ups and The Weekly Menu

Last night Michael and I headed out to a Paleo Pop-up dinner by Zenbelly Catering. For those who don’t know, a Pop-up dinner is like a temporary restaurant for chefs who don’t have their own restaurant. This pop-up was put on by Food Lab and featured an entirely gluten-free and Paleo friendly menu. It was awesome! Having the opportunity to get dressed up and go out to dinner without having to worry about ‘cheating’ was uber cool and the food was amazing! Being able to order Paella made with cauliflower rice, priceless! If you’re in the Bay area this month, I highly recommend checking it out. You can order tickets here.

This is what my 3 course dinner shaped up to look like:

Heirloom Tomato Salad & Tallow Fries

Seafood Paella with Cauliflower Rice & Coconut Chocolate Cake

In other news, Michael and I are getting ready for VEGAS next weekend! This will be our third trip in 2 years and it hasn’t gotten old yet. We love being able to relax by an awesome pool sipping cocktails while having our choice of  highly rated restaurants for dinner. Me + Good Food = Love. I’ll be making a special effort this week to eat clean in preparation for the foodie extravaganza next weekend.
