The Dunkin Donuts people need to ask me my hockey team preference before pouring my coffee. This is serious business around here and I am starting to get real annoyed.
The best baked oatmeal is definitely served at the Premier Diner. I love a good brunch.
These crispy rice tuna things are always my favorite appetizer when I go out for sushi. They are not available on every sushi restaurant menu but Aiko has them which gets us excited.
Dinner at Market Bistro was delicious although as I said in yesterday’s workout recap, I paid the price during my long run Saturday morning. I am not going to complain though because I will take a great dinner out over a good long run any day. Maybe that makes me a minority in the running community but my social life matters a whole lot more to me than how I perform during a run.
I don’t even know what flavor ice cream was served with the cute chocolate cake but it was really good.
I happily stopped by a bridal event at Neiman Marcus (for work-related reasons) over the weekend and was really happy to see the cupcake display. All events are that much better with a cupcake display, don’t you think?
A Red Mango parfait will always be my most favorite lunch.
Sushi two nights in one week? Yep, it happened. Someone really needs to start cooking again more often.
Let’s discuss eating at home vs. dining out for a minute.
Of course it’s important to cook and eat meals at home. It’s usually less expensive and sometimes healthier because you are in control of the ingredients. However, it’s really important to get out of the kitchen sometimes. In fact, it’s important to get out of the kitchen often, on a regular basis, if you want my personal opinion.
There’s only so much cooking a person can do without losing their mind and/or interest in what they are constantly creating in the kitchen on a routine basis.
Even worse, way too many people avoid dining out in fear of not being in charge of preparing the food themselves which I feel is a sad way to live.
Dining out is a social experience as well as a chance to enjoy the foods you often can’t/won’t cook at home.
It’s extremely tiring and self-limiting to constantly care about calorie counts and/or what’s in the food on your plate.
There are ways to order “healthy” while dining out and there’s also room in everyone’s diet to just enjoy themselves without thinking about it.
I understand it is not easy for everyone to do this. I also understand that it’s hard to break the habit of counting calories all of the time but hopefully I can somehow help with that. Calorie counts will never come up on my blog and I will do my best to show you that it’s more than okay to eat cake and go out to eat often while still balancing it all out with running and the “healthy” stuff.thought per picture plus why it's important to eat out often! #weekend #premierdiner… Click To Tweet
