Fire House Venice Beach with H-Bomb
I love the Firehouse Restaurant in Venice Beach. It is right down the street from the Mecca of Bodybuilding-Gold’s Gym Venice. The real deal. The place where muscles are sometimes too big for the doorways. The original place of our amazing former governer, Arnold Schwarzeneggar. In fact, walking out of my Yoga class today, I bumped into the fabulous Lou Ferrigno who said to me, “Where have you been hiding?” I love Golds!
Well, right down the street from there is the FireHouse where I met my gorgeous and talented friend, and owner of www.g-loves.com, Hedda Royce, AKA H-Bomb! With her tight little belly and glowing smile, we sat, giggled and stuffed our faces with egg white scrambles and omelets before working out at a pilates place down the street. This girl is so dear to me, and has a great fitness product that you all need to get your hands into. (hee hee no pun intended)
So, if you go to the FireHouse, here is a list of some JZ Fitness Approved items. If it isn’t on my list, then it ain’t in your mouth. Got it?
1) Firehouse Breakfast the following way: with either sliced tomatoes or cottage cheese. Order with chicken breast or with steak, egg whites only. No bread, no high GI carbs PERIOD!!!
2) Omelette with fresh greens, option to have sliced tomatoes with it. Make sure you ask for avocado.
