I spent a lot of time in my teens in D.C., a majestic city that has always felt like home to me. I recently visited the beautiful capital and thought I'd share my adventures exploring amazing wellness spots in the city!
The first thing I do when I scout out a place I'm visiting is check out the local juice bars. If I can get juices delivered to where I'm staying, I do that to make sure I can stay balanced. My kids love to drink them also, which ensures we all prevent getting sick by boosting our immune systems with high vibrations while traveling. These juices (I tried the amazing Charcoal + Green ones) from JRINK Juicery are top notch.
For lunch one day, our fuel was from an adorable place in DC called Buredo. We took the kids before heading out to the national mall on an adventure. The kids each picked their own rolls + loved every bite. It's fun to eat at places the whole family can be happy!
My favorite roll was (fittingly) "the Sofi" which had shrimp tempura, avocado, pickled cabbage, carrot, toasted sesame seeds, red tobiko, + sriracha mayo. Sooo yummy!
Yoga is one of my non-negotionables while traveling. When the weather is beautiful + warm enough, I love to go outside in nature to practice. I also enjoy scoping out the local yoga studios + getting to know the community. One of my favorite studios in the D.C. area is Down Dog, which is a hot vinyasa style, leaving me feeling strong + cleansed after days of Christmas cookie consumption.
Thanks to Chef Todd Gray, I had an impeccable dinner at Equinox. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts were exquisite (+ I use that term once a year, if that!).
To start, the risotto fritters were out of control. I'm glad there were two men at the table who scarfed them up before I could eat them all myself. My inner southern girl wanted to eat the whole bowl and order a second round (thank goodness the rest of the entrees distracted me shortly after these were gone!).
