Fast Food

Viime aikoina mielessä on ollut ruoka. Ja se, etten tällä hetkellä taaskaan pysty syömään viljoja, saatika tekemään edes aiempia pikku poikkeuksia. Lapin reissun, parin munkin ja yhden pitsan seurauksena oikean käden peukaloni ja käteni olivat niin turvonneet, etten pystynyt pitämään edes kynästä kiinni. Särky oli kiva pieni lisä, joka säteili kädestä ylös olkapäähän. Toistaiseksi olen siis viljattomalla ja gluteenittomalla ruokavaliolla, mutta lohdutukseksi kaivelin instagramista vanhoja reissuruokakuvia. Tässä joitakin suosikkipaheitani jenkkireissuilla.
Lately I've been thinking about food. And the fact that I can't eat grains again at the moment, or even make little exceptions as I have in the past. After my trip to Lapland, a few donuts and a pizza, my thumb and my right hand were so swollen, that I could barely even hold onto a pen. The pain was of course an added bonus, which radiated all the way from my hand up to my shoulder. For now I'm on a completely grainless, gluten free diet, but as a consolation I found some old food pics from my travels on instagram. Here are some of my favorite vices while traveling in the US.

        Finland could use decent American breakfasts, like this 6 dollar breakfast at Denny's on Sunset Blvd.

                The most delicious sandwich ever. A short rib sandwich with melted Jack at Joan's on Third in LA.

My all time favorite drive-in is definitely Sonic America's Drive-In. This was in Yucca Valley near Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. This particular location featured a server on roller skates. Just like old times - very exciting!

                         I love Yogurtland. their numerous flavors and the juicy bubbles used as toppings.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is something you definitely should try out when you travel in the US. Owned by McDonald's, but committed to serving some of the best ingredients around, this is truly a treat. I've had a thing for burritos and beans ever since I first set foot in the US back in the 90's, though I should eat either. Sometime I even crave Taco Bell.
