Man, I just love this restaurant!! Hip, healthy, and delicious. We had TONS of fun with our new friends, Jennifer and Brian. We’ve got a lot in common and are planning a dinner together at this amazing restaurant we have all been wanting to try in a few weeks. We’re hoping to ask my other blog reader friends to join us! All you Raleigh/Durham blog readers, you should come down too!
Here’s me and Jennifer with our free “Crisp apples!”
For lunch I ordered a “build your own salad” with the special – a small piece of salmon grilled with a tomato tampenade on top (the salmon wasn’t as big as it looks here). It was superb!! My salad had mixed greens, spinach, carrots, cucs, kalamata olives, grilled mushrooms, a few roasted peppers and a splash of honey mustard. This is one of the only places that takes me seriously when I say “Can you please toss in 1 tsp of dressing.” 1 tsp it was – just enough to get the flavor! I gave my crouton to the husband after one bite. I also sampled his sandwich and soup – everything here is good!
I also tried my 4th Crisp soup – the cauliflower-zucchini. It didn’t let me down! I’m sure the heavy cream was involved again, but the Crisp soups are definitely a “worth it” food. I ate about 75% of the soup.
All together -
I roughly estimated this lunch at around 600 kcal.
Workout + Snack
Got in a nice workout this morning. 30 minutes on the Stairmaster and then some abs and I realized I was nuts not to be working out outside so the sun and I went jogging together for about 2 miles around the Y’s track. It was so bright and beautiful.
Speaking of sunshine, I snapped this photo of our backyard this morning because it was just so pretty. I can’t WAIT for full-time spring!! And then….summer!!!! 8)
After my workout I had a half serving of trail mix to tide me until our 1pm lunch -
I can’t believe it’s already 4pm! I feel like we just finished lunch. Not sure what my plans are, but we’re hanging out here tonight, so I hope to get in some Eat, Pray, Love and maybe a little Physio studying for my test Monday…..or maybe not!!
