Knotted Up

Morning!

This morning I was super busy finishing up a freelance piece before yoga so I didn’t have time to post breakfast. Unfortunately I woke up with a slamming headache…tried to fix it with a 75 minute power flow class but it’s still lurking and I’m about to pop some excedrin. I think I need a massage.

Breakfast:

More chia oats! Used the same mix as yesterday: 1/3 c oats, mix of soymilk + milk, 1 T chia seeds, 1 banana, 1 T almond butter and pumpkin butter. Plus more chai tea!
And lunch was reheated split pea soup with organic spicy blue corn chips and roasted kabocha squash:

Twas yummy.
So, I can’t seem to stay out of San Francisco. This afternoon I’m meeting Brooke, who might just be my long lost soulmate, for dinner here. Pretty excited about it since as everyone knows “I eat out at restaurants like every single day of the week”. (that was a joke).
Be back!

    It’s funny that you say “that was a joke,” because honestly, if you look back through your posts, it’s just about true! You do eat out at LEAST once – sometimes twice – almost every single day. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that, just saying that your regular readers see the trend and there’s no need to be defensive.

    I agree with Caitlin. It is true… you eat out… a lot. I used to read this blog to get ideas on things I can make at home too. But now it seems you have a better budget then most people do! I can’t afford to eat out all the time.

    This is not a critical comment, but you eat out daily. Whether it’s a sandwich from the grocery store or a goodie from the yogurt place. Not to mention the restaurants you eat at. Caitlin in MD was right…we read you daily. We see how often you DO eat out. You do it, and there’s nothing wrong with it. I just feel you’re being delusional trying to deny it or taking it as a critical comment. You have to know that the life you are living now is not realistic to MOST of your readers. People who came here originally to read about “eating healthy” and the recipes you would create are going to notice the change. It’s great you can do that, and it’s interesting to see the places you’ve gone and your TRUE FOODIE experiences, but please KEEP IT REAL and don’t try to blindside us with “pretending” you don’t know what these readers are referring to.

      Sorry guys! I was totally making a joke and my head was killing me. Sorry if I was rude in any way or acting “defensive”. I eat out a lot because…why not? The food is amazing here, I have great friends, I love restaurants and I’m 24 and live on my own…gotta live it up in your 20’s….and my finances are personal. I’m not saying that I don’t eat out a lot because I know I do. Sometimes my off-dry sense of humor backfires in my face. Oops.

    Folks – I don’t typically post comments on this blog, but I really just feel the need to say, “GIVE JENNA A BREAK, PEOPLE!”. She is adjusting to a new town, new social situations, new job, new life experiences. If that means that a lot of these new experiences include going out to eat on dates or with new friends, as I’m sure many of us foodies would love to do (jealous much?), then so be it. Why be so judgemental? What is so wrong with changing behavior and going out to eat more than you used to? Don’t you think that’s how someone who is so passionate about food would explore a new town? She still takes the time to give us great blog posts and photos about her meals (which, let’s be honest, are still quite healthy and have given me tons of ideas).

    Bottom line – if the blog isn’t what you had hoped it would continue to be, then find another blog! There’s many out there! Isn’t freedom just great? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Jenna – I love seeing what you eat and where you go when you go out to eat. I live in NYC and eat out ALL.THE.TIME. on a very small budget (food over new clothes? always.) Cooking for one isn’t always the cheapest option and its hard to avoid all the amazing places to eat here (obv the same for you out in Cali). I love seeing what you eat throughout the day and then seeing what you enjoy when you eat out. And on that note, its great to see that you DO enjoy everything you order (in other words, you’re not ordering salads with dressing on the side, etc..). On top of that, eating out is SOCIAL. Every meal you have you’re enjoying with a friend. OF COURSE you’re going to eat out when someone comes to visit or you spend the day in San Fran!

    My point is – keep doing what you’re doing. I love love love you’re blog and following you eat day is an adventure ๐Ÿ™‚ Please dont change a thing!

    Dude, who ever said blog readers have to have the same lifestyle as you and bloggers have to eat in every night? Isn’t “keeping it real” going with the flow of your life and where you end up at every meal (house, restaurant, really awesome NorCal supermarkets who make awesome deli sandwiches on the reg?). Yo once I was running and made my own slogan for my life and it was “doin’ what I want since ’91” (yes, I am a baby). And I feel like everyone should be doin’ what they want… or else they aren’t being themselves. Okay, I am off to do what I want. SEE YOU TONIGHT WOOOO!!!!

    I think most of us are probably just jealous that you can eat out all the time ๐Ÿ™‚ and, on top of that, not worry about your waistline ๐Ÿ˜›

    I think this is an interesting discussion though–I think a lot of your readers, including myself, really admire your voice as a twenty-something working woman who is just living everyday life. We’ve gotten to know someone who is very real to us and who can all relate to and also look to for inspiration and motivation. There’s nothing wrong with your success and adventures in eating out and living it up, but there has definitely been a change, and it may be the kind of thing that many of your readers can’t relate to. On top of that lots of people are totally uncomfortable with change. But that’s really their problem. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m someone who loves to eat out, but I always get stuck on one food, and must venture out of my comfort zone and try different things. Jenna enjoys her food and trying different things, if she was to cook these all at home it would be so expensive, and wasting alot of food. We’re now empty nesters and it’s cheaper to go out and eat then stay at home and alot more fun. Enjoy….

    You write a food blog, are working on a cookbook and went to culinary school. Food is obviously high on your list of loves and don’t apologize for that! People spend their time and money on the things that they consider priorities in life and that is different for every person. If you like eating out every day, then enjoy it and don’t feel the need to deny or apologize about it.

    Have fun tonight!

Don’t let your readers dictate the way you do things–march to the beat of your own drummer (yes, I realize that I just utilized an overused cliche to tell you to do things differently than others.

    Wow, people all have their opinions- and i think they share them because you have made your life public to some degree. I too have noticed all the eating out- spur of the moment trips- mention of work…then no mention of work for a while- and ever flowing alcohol….obviously your life is not super realistic for most people. Should that matter to anyone- no.
    You seem to be living quite an adventure- and why not?? Your single and what else should you do with your time? I think you should enjoy the ride while you can! The “following every whim” days are short so enjoy them while you can! I think it’s innocent and sweet how you go about life- it’s a blessing that you have the means to do whatever you want day to day. Like I said, enjoy it while you can!

I enjoy reading your blog every day and have gotten many ideas and much knowledge from you! I eat out very often, and pride myself on making the most out of the 1/2 price or Bogo deals! We often eat out cheaper than we can eat in! The kids are on their own and we deserve it! I still make the things I really enjoy cooking, but enjoy eating out and not having to clean up!

    Heyy!
    Looove the blog!! I was wondering if you could give me some insight on a possible hamstring strain that I think I have, I know that a while ago you were dealing with your own injury as well. I have not been to the drโ€™s but when I stretch my left leg, the part of the muscle that meets the base of my butt hurts. I usually stretch atleast twice a day so Im thinking it may be from not warming up enough. It does not hurt while ellipticaling, just stretching. I recently cut out a ton of cardio due to too much weight loss and was focusing much more on ST to gain weight, especially lower body for muscle mass.
    I know you have a very busy life, but was wondering what you think I should do? Or if you know anything about hamstring strains? I know rest, but itโ€™s so hard for me to do so โ€“ Iโ€™m a very active person and am used to doing activity everyday. What did you do to cope?
    Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it!

    First off, I think it’s ridiculous that some readers would actually attack you for taking advantage of the amazing food culture inherent in California living. Those folks should eat out at a smoothie shop and order a big old “lighten up” shake. Yeesh. Your blog is your blog, it’s your lifestyle and it needn’t adhere to anyone’s idea of what it “should” entail.

    That being said, have a fabulous time tonight in the City! Love you Jenna!

    what i think is funny is how much people care one way or the other- i mean seriously. there are real issues in this world right now. i realize that people read this blog as an escape from reality- but getting too cranked up about anything is silly. online blogs have 3 types: 1. the person blogging, because they like talking about themselves 2. the kiss-up follower (who whole-heartedly defends all actions/statements from the blogger even though they don’t actually know them personally) 3. the skeptical follower (who gets bugged by how the blogger frames themselves and their situation up- and who gets annoyed at the bloggers flock of kiss-up followers). It’s all an artificial relationship that gives readers something to follow and judge. At the end of the day- all of it makes no difference, really. the topics shared etc. will not make a major impact on most of the readers real lives (at home doing the real grind of life). it’s fun, it’s an escape, but nothing to get cranked up about.

    Really who cares if you’ve been eating out a lot? While some people have pointed out it’s different for your readers, you’re probably gaining some interest of others. Don’t let this bother you.

    Lengthy comment warning… ๐Ÿ™‚

    First, it shouldn’t matter where Jenna chooses to eat or how often she eats out. She has always been gracious enough to post pictures of what she eats, whether she makes it at home or orders it at a restaurant. I always imagine this fun, bubbly girl photographing her meal at the table, but I digress…

    For me, I actually enjoying seeing what you order at restaurants, Jenna, because you do manage to eat mostly healthy though you do eat out a lot which is VERY hard to do. I find that commendable and it does help me to look for similar choices when I’m out at restaurants myself.

    I’m from a city about 50 miles from San Francisco and O.M.G., the culture, the city, the FOOD…why wouldn’t you go and explore?! And Jenna…you so hit the nail on the head about being in your 20’s. It is the PERFECT time to have fun, eat out a lot, explore, try new things, places, ways of living. I’m speaking as someone in her late 30’s who is married with children. I have no regrets about my 20’s. I lived it up, traveled as much as I could, ate at the best restaurants and the local dives and quite simply, had a blast! You have been afforded the opportunity to spread your wings and fly. Go for it! I am still in the great state of California though I have now ventured south to San Diego, which might be the other greatest city in California (wink, wink) and if you’re ever in this area, I will point you in the direction of some phenomenal places to eat!

    Nothin’ but love, Jenna!

    I think it’s awesome. Makes for a more exciting blog, as well, I must say. Not that your blog wasn’t exciting before ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I live in NYC and I eat out all the time too! Its just what you do when you’re young and live in such an awesome place with awesome restaurants all around you. Do it up! Also maybe you’ll get new and exciting ideas for your book! ๐Ÿ™‚

    What is all the fuss about?? I didn’t find anything wrong with your post. Who wants to see someone just throw together some quick meals at home anyway? You are a busy girl that gets to mix business with pleasure! I think you found the key to staying happy!! We obviously love to see your photos and hear about your dinners with friends or we would stop reading your blog. Keep it up! Fantastic!

    Jenna, you should add a disclaimer page that says something to the effect of “Just because this is the way things are now doesn’t mean it’s the way they’ll always be. Such is life. Deal with it.”

    Even though your blog is a little different that when I started reading it, I still LOVE it and look forward to reading it every day. Hell, I’m different now too so who am I to judge? I like reading about your journey and your adventures. Sometimes I feel like I can live vicariously through you =).

    But I should point out that not only do you eat at restaurants “all the time” but you have a “drinking problem” too. (Just kidding!!!!!!)

    Who cares if you eat out a lot? Most of what you eat is healthy & you exercise. You’re still leaving a healthy lifestyle, and that’s what matters!

    why does anyone care about any of this? i think people are jealous for some reason but I see jenna’s situation quite differently, i guess. to me it would be somewhat lonely being single, in a new city trying to make friends and figure out lifes purpose. jenna’s young and doesn’t appear to have truly “found” herself yet. so what that she eats out, drinks often, hangs out with all kinds of different people, and just floats through life right now- that’s nothing to get bothered by. I think her life is fairly typical of most post grads that really don’t know what they want to do in life. jenna’s not famous- and is no different than many other girls her age (she just blogs about it- and that’s becoming fairly common now too). i don’t see why anyone cares about any of these mundane details (eating out/not eating out….drinking too much/not drinking too much…etc etc).
    If half of the people who commented would turn their attention to people that are actually making an impact on the world (people doing charity work, helping families in need, giving their time to worthy causes, and people just generally focusing on others, as opposed to having such a self-focused life)- how nice that would be.
