Throughout the weekend, I wasn't very good at being healthy but I WAS very good at sleeping, being a bum, and being way too indulgent. Seriously...I ate an entire bag of cheddar Ruffles potato chips in the land of healthy, organic, green food.
Regardless, Chris's and my favorite destination to eat at was the Green Goddess Cafe in Stowe, Vermont. The food was so fresh, the gluten-free bread tasted gluten- filled, and we were stuffed like sausages after we each consumed a single sandwich and a cup of coffee.
Coming back to Boston meant treating our bodies with a little more respect. In doing so, I ate one of the most fulfilling meals that I've had in months, all thanks to a little article I read in Real Simple magazine. The recipe consisted of four items: 1 egg, 1/4 cup cooked quinoa, 1/4 cup chopped avocado, and 2 slices of smoked salmon. With the exception of the salmon, the remaining items were heated up on the stove top, along with cayenne pepper and a dash of salt. The fat and protein kept me filled until lunch!! That my friends, is entirely unheard of. Well, I mean, I had a banana as my morning snack too, but usually breakfast and snack time never keep me satisfied until lunch!
The rest of the day consisted of a veggie-laden salad with panko-crusted chicken, a granny smith apple, and half of an avocado. I may or may not had two squares of chocolate as well, but knowing me, I did a pretty darn good job of eating today.
