November 2021

What are we eating:

Smoked Salmon on Toast 

Smoked salmon on bread.

It's that simple... well there's a bit more to it: 

  • 1 small pinch sea salt
  • 1 small pinch freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 squeeze lemon juice
  • 1 loaf sourdough
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 300 g smoked salmon , from sustainable sources, ask your fishmonger
  • 1 pinch of rosemary 
  • Crushed walnuts 
  • Crème fraîche

  • What are we drinking:

    We usually take a period of time away from alcohol annually and take the time to focus on optimizing our health and achieving hyper productivity. As of late, we have been drinking salt water first thing in the morning to rehydrate before beginning our workout for the day, and although lemon and pink Himalayan salt will do the trick, we've opted for LMNT which is a sugar free electrolyte drink mix that we first learned of through the Modern Wisdom Podcast. We're addicted to our sodium, potassium and magnesium morning starts now and we've both felt better and more energized throughout the day. 

    (We have no affiliation with the podcast or LMNT - just fans). 

    Accessory or Clothing Item Go-to: 

    Smythe Pouf Sleeve Top - my favourite lightweight sweater that I have been styling with a burgundy blazer, black trousers and black suede thigh high boots. 

    What we are doing to relax:

    Adult Lego. We ordered the Porsche 911 Turbo and have been working on it daily section by section. It's so much fun...
