Thursday, January 3
We get into the studio around 11 a.m. and leave around 2:30 a.m. I’ve been spending all my time here. At some point someone will be like, "I’m hungry," and we’ll figure out what to eat.
To start off the day I had some leftover nachos from Castro’s. They make their nachos fresh. I didn’t want them to go bad so I brought them in [to the studio] and ate them first thing. Then I had salmon and mashed potatoes and string beans for dinner. I had some peppermint teas throughout the day and a Starbucks soy chai latte and these coffee-infused ginger cookies that I’m addicted to.
Friday, January 4
I had a veggie burrito from Chipotle down the block and a grapefruit Izzy drink. Later on I had a pad Thai with shrimp and Fiji water from some sushi restaurant right near the studio. I love Thai food.
There’s a vending machine I generally stay away from, but I got a pack of Famous Amos chocolate-chip cookies. I only had three or four and then it made me feel gross.
Saturday, January 5
I had a Caesar salad with tuna from Grey Dog Coffee, and then I had a Kombucha — it’s a “handmade Chinese tea that’s delicately cultured for 30 days…” I think somebody told me that it’s fermented mushroom tea — it pretty much tastes like Champagne. It smells kind of vinegary. The first time I drank them I was like, “Uh ” But they’ve grown on me.
Then I had ma-po tofu from Kelley and Ping, and I had rice and edamame. And I had a strawberry, blueberry, and orange smoothie with the salad. I had a Petit Ecolier dark-chocolate cookie.
Sunday, January 6
I had challah French toast with blueberries and strawberries from Grey Dog, and I had home fries and a blueberry-strawberry-orange smoothie. But it was gross the second day so I didn’t get it anymore after that. And I had a peppermint tea and two veggie dogs from Crif Dogs. I love that place — I even drove to get the dogs (with cucumbers, tomatoes, jalapeños, and Cheddar cheese), but they were cold by the time we got back to the studio. I also had a couple spud fries and lemonade.

I discovered this new place called Sunrise Mart. I got kitsune soup with udon noodles, and it has bean curd in it and tofu. I had edamame and a grape Kombucha. Since that pack of cookies was here, I had another cookie. Then I had a green salad with grilled shrimp and carrot-ginger dressing. I also had Twizzlers and a Snapple iced tea at night.
Tuesday, January 8
I had a clementine orange, and then I had pretty much the same thing — kitsune udon soup, edamame, a ginger cookie, Kombucha, and Fiji water.
For dinner I had a Chipotle veggie burrito, nachos, and salsa, and the Izzy sparkling grapefruit.
Wednesday, January 9
I had the kitsune soup again and edamame and a Kombucha (the ginger flavor) and a ginger cookie. I had one salmon-skin roll. I gave the rest away because it was really fishy. And I also bought a grilled shrimp salad with the carrot-ginger dressing. I almost didn’t go to Sunrise Mart today, but it’s not just me in the studio and everyone else wanted it. I said, “Again? Aren’t we over that?”
