|Upstairs seating at Barefoot Cafe.|
Matchpoint - Just around the corner from one of the exits of The Shin-Zushi train exit is Matchpoint. Another rustic interior and their specialty is curry. They had both vegetarian and meat variations and their lunch sets also ran around 1,000 yen. I like hearty curries, and this definitely was good.
Steak Gusto - Cruising along the beach this past weekend, we stumbled upon this place. I had recently been told to go here, and I'm glad we did. They had a great salad bar, that included curry, rice, fruit, and rolls. We got the salad bar, plus a steak and chicken meal. Everything was pretty tasty and for the two of us, the bill was only 2,300 yen. Not bad! They also have free parking if you get your ticket validated when you pay.
Kamakurakomachi - If you eat soy products, then this is the restaurant for you. It is extremely small, and located about 5 minutes from the JR Zushi station. I was taken here over 2 years ago, and have been back many times since. They make delicious tofu patties, tofu potato salad and other wonderful concoctions. You'd never know what you were eating was tofu. Lunch sets also are around 1,000 yen.

= The Rope Climb
In all of my 44 years, I've never attempted to climb a rope. Well, thanks to CF, this week I was able to have a go at it. I was able to get my foot to pinch the rope, but I could not figure out how to pull myself upwards. Thank goodness for U-Tube! Its very helpful to watch videos so that I can see the form I'm supposed to be using to conquer this skill. I hope this is easier than double-unders.
|My favorite smoothie recipe at the moment.|
Lately I've been on a smoothie bandwagon. I've been making them at night, or for a snack during the day. Although I've been trying many variations, here's by far, my favorite recipe:
1 cup of Unsweetened Almond milk
1 handful of spinach
1 scoop of protein powder (yes, even chocolate tastes good)
1 handful of blueberries
Blend all ingredients together in a blender and enjoy. You could add some ice to give the smoothie some volume and a little crunch!
