The Little Beet + Kombucha + Recent Meals

the little beet

I love that it is Wednesday already! The best part of having Monday off is how quickly the rest of the week starts to pass. Okay so first, we need to get back to the Trader Joe’s semi-sweet chocolate chips discussion. I still think the chocolate chips taste different in the new bag. The new […]

Recent Meals + Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chips Issues

  Wednesday already! Who else is ready for a long holiday weekend?   Another week, another Chopt salad. My son and I are in a good place with ordering from Chopt in that he trusts me to place his order along with mine and pick it up for him. For a while there he was […]

Recent Meals (and bakery cookies!)

bakery cookies

I’ve been extra bad at taking pictures of what I’ve been eating lately. The good news is that I basically eat the same foods on a regular rotation so you really aren’t missing much! Although, there was a pretzel in the city recently from a pretzel cart street vendor — it’s a shame I didn’t […]

Recent Meals + Yummy Chocolate Covered Strawberries

  It’s Wednesday already! I love three-day weekends! Although it’s technically a holiday week here in New York. Schools in New York close all week, not just for President’s Day. I don’t really notice as much anymore though since my son is a senior in high school. He doesn’t need me for his plans and […]

Birthday Dinners + Birthday Cakes (My Son’s Birthday)

Yesterday was my son’s birthday! 17. Who can believe that? I know I can’t. I mean, I’ve been writing this blog since he was what — nine years old?! That alone is crazy to me. But the fact that I have a son who is seventeen, driving his own car and applying to college (well […]

What I Ate on Saturday + How I Make Overnight Oats


Let’s do today’s food post in the traditional What I Ate Wednesday style by looking at what I ate on Saturday. Saturday was my boardwalk run day during which I ran 10 miles. Some people assume that running 10 miles means you become extra hungry but I didn’t feel any different than any other day […]

Recent Meals + Best Margarita Pizza + Cookie Dough Ice Cream

chops salad

  So I finally tried a slice of margarita pizza from Stew Leonard’s. And um, it was absolutely delicious. Like so delicious that I was confused about how it could be one of the best slices of pizza I’ve ever had. Although why be confused? I am in New York. Even if Stew Leonard’s is […]

Food Highlights (Lunch at Chopt + Sushi + Pizza)

bbq ranch salad

This post is in no particular order in terms of which day I ate what but that’s ok, right? We can just call it a bunch of food highlights since last week’s Heat Wave Appetite post. I met a friend for lunch at Chopt the other day. We ordered ahead so the salads were waiting […]

My Son Drove Us To Chopt + Good Round Up Of Recent Meals

I have a good round-up of recent meals to share today! At least I think so. 🙂  See this Chopt salad? There isn’t much worth discussing in regards the actual salad. Rather, the important part is that my son drove us from our house to the shopping center where Chopt is located for lunch. We […]

What I’ve Been Eating Lately (Recent Meal Highlights)

dirty taco

I haven’t written a recent meal post in a few weeks so I have a nice round-up ready for today! First, let’s start with my lunch at The Little Beet in between shopping. I picked three different vegetable options — roasted rainbow carrots, roasted broccoli, and the brussels sprouts salad. There’s an avocado bean dip […]

Tried Dirty Taco & Tequila + Other Recent Meals

  I finally tried Dirty Taco & Tequila! I will save my delicious review for the end of this post. First, some other recent meals. I’ve been taking full advantage of my summer with my son away, including eating out more than usual. It’s not that I don’t eat out when he’s home, because I […]

Recent Meals + Quick Stop At Trader Joe’s

trader joes

  Recent meals! Let’s get started. I had two dollars off a salad at Panera so I purposely worked from there during lunchtime the other day in order to take advantage of the deal. Another week, another salad from Chopt. This time, I went with spinach, romaine, quinoa, avocado, corn, sweet potatoes, and beets. Mexican […]
