WIAW: Austin Edition

Hey friends!  Our internet has been down since we’ve been back from our trip so I haven’t been able to post this until today, so I thought I’d incorporate it into my WIAW post!

Not only has the internet been down (and just got repaired about an hour ago), but my car died and has been in the shop!  The power steering pump went out and it’s costing some mega bucks to get it fixed!  I have all the luck, huh?!  Sigh.

Our last day in Austin was filled with amazing food!

Starting with some Biscuits and Groovy for breakfast!  These biscuits were indeed groovy!

Biscuits + veggie sausage + french press coffee = one happy girl!


Lunch was at the MOTHER of all whole foods!  Seriously I don’t think I can go back to my normal whole foods after going to that one!  It was ginormous!!

Salad with a little of this and a little of that and with tahini dressing!


Lime sparkling mineral water that I’m now obsessed with.  Thanks Laura!


An amaaaazing samosa!  Potatoes + peas + curry= can’t go wrong with that!



Snack= juice from Daily Juice!  I got beet/orange/apple/ginger- mmmmmm!!!!



Dinner was pizza at Conan’s! (thanks to my friend Schuyler for the suggestion!)  Whole wheat deep dish pizza with veggies and dairy free (Daiya) cheese!  The crust was seriously phenomenal!



Dessert!!!  Another shake from the ice cream shop in Toy Joy!  This time I went for the chocolate mint- oh em gee!!!!





Shopping trip to SoCo (South Congress)!  Very cool area with some great funky shops!



We rounded out the evening with a trip to the South Congress Avenue bridge to see the bats come out!  I think we got there a little late because we only saw a few.  Oh well.  It was still pretty cool seeing all the people out there kayaking and checking out the bats!



Whew!  What a whirl-wind trip!  And I head out to Philly tomorrow morning for HLS!  Can’t wait!!!!



  1. love.that.water.

    i need to find it here, asap

    ALSO you look absolutely beautiful in the juice picture!!!! I love it 🙂

    • I know, I’m going to be scouting out all the Mexican groceries when we get back from HLS!

      And thanks- thanks so sweet!! (I’m blushing, hehe!)

  2. wow, you are a busy traveler lately! but what a bummer that you seem to hit all kinds of bad luck when you get back home. 🙁 not fun…

    that juice sounds awesome – i love getting ginger in juices!

  3. That looks like a fabulous day of food! Sorry for the issues and good luck with going to Philly!

  4. so. jealous. want. whole. foods. now! haha! =) I think i’m roadtripping it to one this weekend. thank goodness!

    happy wiaw!

  5. AHHHH! You were in my hometown 🙂 I live right down the street from the Whole Foods, and the first time I visited I almost cried upon seeing the salad bar.

    Next time you come back, you’ve got to have Salvation Pizza…it’s the best. [Although perhaps I better read previous posts to see if you’ve been there already…]

    Love the photos you took of my beloved city!

    PS- Thanks for reminding me I have a Groupon for Biscuits and Groovy.

    • I’ll remember that- thanks for the suggestion!!

      I don’t think I’ll ever see my tiny little whole foods the same way again after going to that one!
