Steak Diane

Been experimenting with carb cycling. More on training days, less on rest days. Lots of protein everyday. Skipping breakfasts and eating bigger meals in general.

London – Burgers

Took a vacation to the UK. This is the first in a short series of London eating posts.

My comfort food: burger and chips. Ate in a few burger places. Enjoyed my time there, even though the burgers in the UK are much more expensive than in the US.

Five Guys (US chain) and Honest Burgers (UK) were both good. Both served bunless options. Additionally, at Five Guys you can have your burger lettuce-wrapped. Honest has gluten-free buns available.
