What a great little cafe! I decided on the homemade roasted red pepper hummus sandwich with a side salad. The hummas was GREAT!!! I’m very picky about my hummus – can’t be too dry, too garlicy, too preservative tasting, and this was super. (Which probably means lots of tahini and olive oil!)
I ordered my sandwich on rye bread, which I love. It was HUGE! Probably 4 oz of bread. Plus cucs, spinach, and carrots and cheddar cheese. I ate it all 8) But I couldn’t really even taste the cheese. I should have skipped it but oh well – I got some calcium
Side salad with honey mustard. The dressing tasted very mayonnaisey so I only had a few fork dipfulls.
Berry Tea with honey to drink –
All together –
While this lunch tasted wonderful, it is a lesson in volume eating. The bread and hummus and cheese probably totaled about 500 kcal and weren’t really that filling. The rest about 100 kcal more? I’m really not that full at all. Actually I still feel a little hungry but I might just need to digest. So although this lunch was MORE calories than usual I’m half the fullness! That’s why I choose heavy foods for lunch (yogurt, pumpkin, always some fruit).
But, I LOVE this place and the food tasted so fresh. It’s really bright and airy and I love that they have wireless. I might come back every Wednesday to brighten up lab! They had a soup that looked amazing and I was going to order it instead of the salad but I totally forgot when I got to the register! Maybe next week. And maybe next week I’ll get a glass of wine
See you after 3 hours of titration….
