Since my Mom returned to Wisconsin earlier this month, I’ve been sticking close to home on the weekends as I’m recovering from my my foot injury. Last weekend I was feeling much better and decided to venture out and treat myself to lunch out. I’d been running errands and appointments all day since my morning workout.
I didn’t plan on eating out that day, but I was starving and not close to home. Instead of eating something I would regret later I decided to stop and eat at my favorite healthy eating place Pita Jungle. I sat on the patio and enjoyed a warm sunny afternoon lunch. It was a treat! Before my injury, I ate out at once every weekend. Eating out last weekend reminded me of my life before injury. It was nice to feel normal again.
And a little side of roasted cauliflower for fun. Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast. You have to sneak them in wherever you can! I’m really digging cauliflower lately. It’s delicious roasted. I roasted this at 375 for 18 minutes with a little extra virgin olive oil, pepper and garlic powder.
Lunch – I treated myself at my favorite healthy eating locale Pita Jungle. I had the chicken shawarma lavosh wrap – grilled chicken, tomatoes, onions, garlic sauce with a greek salad, dressing on the side.
Their homemade green tea. It’s amazing and huge!
They even give more green tea to go!
Dinner – Black bean burger on a bed of romaine with mustard and side of roasted asparagus and zuchini.
Snack – Apple with my all time favorite NuttZo. It has nothing but 7 nuts (no peanuts in this one), no added oils or sugars. It’s just nuts. It’s the pricest nut butter I’ve ever seen, but worth every last penny!
What’s your favorite restuarant? How often do you treat yourself to eating out?
