Keeping the typing to a minimum here!
I had a GREAT salad at EarthFare for lunch, and it definitely brightened my dreary rainy day. When I get salads here, I fill the bowl half full with raw veggies and then the top half (well, quarter maybe) with a painters palate of little bites of salads. SO fun!! I love sampling just one bite of things. I basically eat all the toppings off along with half of the veggies and use a tiny bit of dressing to finish off the veggies.
Veggie Base (I just get a few pieces of each thing or I’d have a mountain!)
- Bell peppers
- Zucchini + Squash
- Shredded carrots
Chopped salmon (the BEST!! I think it’s because they use the highest quality salmon here)
Sweet potato salad and one blob of a pear/apple type salad (at top)
Wheatberry salad with plump raisins!
A falafel ball. I don’t really like falafel in general (onions) but these are SO GOOD! Very doughy. It’s hard not to get 3-4 of them!
Plus marinated + grilled zucchini and a blob of curry chicken salad. I had low-fat raspberry dressing for the end.
ALSO, they had grilled peach halves on the buffet!!! I had no choice but to get one for dessert! The delicious looking icing was actually an unsweet buttery blob that wasn’t very interesting so I removed it and just ate the peach.
Lastly, I got a sample of bread with goat’s cheese and fruit spread as I was checking out – I ate him for dessert too!
All together with sparkling water –
Tough to ballpark nutritionals on this one, but I’m guessing between 550-600 kcal when I broke down the parts (just generally – not each one.)
Now I’m going to work on Physio here at EarthFare and then head home to finish up a few things before the husband gets home. Tomorrow we’re planning to watch Duke play UNC basketball (Go Devils!) at a wine bar! And we’ve got brunch plans for Sunday. Otherwise, it’s just another fun weekend.
(OK that was NOT minimal typing!!)
