I had to laugh when I sat down to put together this recent eats post. The only photos in my phone were either of salads or deserts.
My kind of balance!
I haven’t been doing the best job at remembering to take pictures of my food if you want to know the truth. Breakfast is almost always missed by the camera and meals out over the last several months are mostly left undocumented (like sushi at Kashi the other day). I think my lack of desire to remember to take pictures of food stems from one part just living without thinking about pictures and one part from last week’s post about not really caring much about what I eat anymore.
But I do have a few salads to share with you today followed by a couple of great desserts so let’s discuss.
My salads from Chopt never look like much other than lettuce, right? Chopped in the bowl though is quinoa, avocado, spicy peppers, beets and charred onions.
I had this salad from Panera one afternoon for lunch while working. My new standard Panera salad order is the mixed greens salad with the addition of avocado and cilantro hummus.
I made this salad for lunch when I was really hungry but didn’t know exactly what I felt like eating. It’s a chopped up Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger with roasted sweet potatoes and feta cheese. I don’t know, it worked.
Let’s talk about my dessert from Cold Stone the other night. Usually I get their chocolate fudge brownie frozen yogurt but they were out of it. I didn’t even bother to ask if they were temporarily out of it or forever out of it. Instead, I let it slide and went with the French vanilla yogurt mixed with my standard chocolate chips, cookie dough and fudge. It was good, no complaints.
You may have seen this heavenly chocolate chip cookie sandwich on Instagram already. We were at the Mets game on Monday where I finally selected this gem of a dessert from a wide variety of baked goods. I definitely made the right choice! Chocolate chip cookies with chocolate frosting in the center? Yes. Just yes.
It’s worth noting that I had a pink lady apple with peanut butter yesterday afternoon as a snack. By now you know that I completely lost my desire for apples, even when diced up with peanut butter which I never thought would happen to me! I gave it try again yesterday because I feel like apples are not a fruit I should give up.
Did I enjoy it this time? Honestly, not really! I ate it but wouldn’t go out of my way to eat it again anytime soon. How crazy?! I went a good five years eating an apple with peanut butter every day and now, it has become so whatever to me. Crazy, I know. Hopefully my taste for the great combo returns soon.My kind of balance: Salads & Desserts! #WIAW #Chopt #salads #Panera #desserts #cookies #ColdStone Click To Tweet
