Want to know what traveling to 2 different states, 2 weeks in a row, for 2 different Friday weddings does to my eating habits?
Take a look at this post!
Breakfast – oats, made with powdered PB because my real PB was missing!
Lunch – Greek Salad picked up from Clifton Diner:
This salad is SO AMAZING! There’s mixed greens, tomato, cucumber, red onion, feta, kalamata olives, and artichoke hearts, served with a lemon-oregano vinaigrette!
I swear – that dressing makes the salad!
For dinner – I picked up ANOTHER salad – this time from Rockne’s!
I’ve got to be honest – I’m a little skeeved out on meat right now. (which you will ABSOLUTELY laugh at me or call me a hypocrite for saying, when you see the next set of pictures).
I’m NOT going to say “I’m a vegetarian” (even though I am probably 85% there already) – or anything drastic like that – but – every time I’ve gone to order food lately, I’ve had a bit of a gag reflex problem when thinking about chicken, which used to be the one meat I still ordered without hesitation.** I’m still working it out!
For dessert – Mike and I broke into a treat that had been given to us by his cousin Kristen & her husband while we were in Austin. They found this treasure at Frank, and thought “Hmmm, what food blogger would this be good for?” THANKS GUYS!
What’s in the bag?
It had salt (and I swear pepper) on the chocolate!
Honestly? I’ll say it tasted really darn good! It was very salty, almost like a Lindt Sea Salt bar, just with a hint of extra chewiness! Surprisingly delicious!
Thanks for thinking of us Kristen & John!!
Yes I did just talk about how bacon was delicious and how meat has been freaking me out in the same post. Yes I know bacon is meat. I think the whole dried meat thing helped me get past it. Just leave me to my struggles people!
** I apprehensively watched the trailer that Matt posted the other day. Please read his post if you want more information (warning, very graphic). I’m not trying to tell anyone what decisions they should or shouldn’t make, I just wanted to comment on it because this has been popping up on a lot of blogs, and his post really affected me.
I typically find the PETA/animal rights videos very disturbing, saddening, and upsetting, but they don’t change the way I operate. Earthlings (video launches automatically, be careful) really, really, deeply affected me and made my heart ache and stomach churn me. (I’m sure all the meat-eating-males in my life are totally rolling their eyes at me right now, and I’m okay with that.) Right now I don’t have too much more to say about it because my mind is still processing the horrifying things I saw. I’ll leave you with this. Watch the trailer at your own risk. I’m not saying that as a scare tactic to get you to watch it – I’m being serious. Honestly – I’d actually encourage you to not watch it ever, but at the same time, I don’t want to preach ignorance. What to do…
