I really tried to focus and stay true to My September Goals this weekend while we were out of town. I was able to fit my veggies in at breakfast only one time and not so much for my snacks, but, I made sure that I fit in extra veggies at lunch and dinner. I think I did good making healthy choices and had some delicious food along the way. Fingers crossed the scale shows my efforts this week 🙂
When I started putting together my weekend highlights post, I realized that we visited some of my favorite places and I naturally gravitated towards the healthier options ~ I officially cross the 21 days to a new habit on Tuesday and I think my taste buds are there in wanting veggies with every meal ~ AWESOME!
I think you all know I am pretty much addicted to going to Michael’s Deli whenever we are in Reno because their Thai Chicken Salad is AMAZING. I was so excited when I saw that they serve breakfast too ~ boy do they serve breakfast!
Spinach & Mushroom Omelet ~ Michael’s Deli, I officially LOVE you!!!!
With 1 slice of Whole Wheat Toast (The Husband ate the other – so proud of my Wonder Bread Boy for branching out into grainy goodness & liking it!:D)
We stopped at Starbuck’s to read the paper and have a Grande Iced Latte for snack.
After working up an appetite antiquing, we made our way back to Michael’s Deli so I could get their Thai Chicken Salad that is BEYOND GOOD! I keep saying ‘ll try something else on the menu, but, I can’t help but get this like EVERY time!
I really think the secret is in the sauce :) Their chicken is topped with a Sweet & Spicy Garlic Chili Sauce.
After making my donation to the local casinos I snacked on an apple and some cashews that we brought with us.
We had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
I was so excited when they had EXACTLY what I was craving on the menu. Simple Garden Salad to start (I moved the Cranberries over because they didn’t really go with Ranch).
I swapped out my Cheddar Garlic Mashed Potatoes for loads of steamed broccoli (who am i?!) Along with my head of broccoli I had the BEST Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken. Too bad I only had room for half of it.
I am DEFINITELY recreating this soon!
We were originally going to come home on Saturday night, but, decided to extend our stay in Lake Tahoe for another day. I have to admit, I LOVED waking up and being able to go down to the lobby and get a Venti Iced Latte from Starbuck’s. 😀
After I managed to earn some of my moohlah back, breakfast was in order at a new place we have never been too ~ Tahoe Key’s Cafe.
How cute does it look?!
If you all are ever in South Lake Tahoe, you need to add this place to your must try list. I am pretty sure if you are anything like me, you will want to try everything on the menu 🙂
I LOVE local owned places that not only serve organic eats, but, are sustainable and know a few things about what is good for you ~ how delicious does that Acai bowl Sound?!
I actually wanted eggs ~ crazy since I’ve been tired of them :) I ordered their Low Carb Custom Made Breakfast Burrito and it was AMAZING!
It was filled with ham, cheese, eggs, salsa and I made sure to pour hot sauce all over each bite. I gave The Husband my other half because it was HUGE. My tastebuds probably could’ve eaten it, but, I knew my stomach was full.
On our way home we stopped at the Antique and Vintage Fair in Folsom. Have I ever told you all I have a thing for SHAVED ICE? As in I get it where ever we go 😀
Breakfast and that shaved ice 😉 Kept us going for 7 hours so we ended up having “LINNER” – Lunch Dinner at Jack’s Urban Eats.
I think this might be my new favorite salad combo from Jack’s aside from the fact that I feel like I get my 5 a day all in one bowl.
* Mixed Greens
* Red Bell Pepper
* Garbanzo/Kidney Beans
* Grilled Mushrooms
* Grilled Chicken Breast
* TEQUILLA LIME DRESSING ~ The star!!!
MMMMM, I LOVED my weekend not just for all the fun we had, but, for the FOOD. It’s ok, I can admit I can be bribed into just about anything with the promise of AMAZING FOOD 😉
WHAT IS ONE FOOD YOU CAN BE BRIBED TO DO ANYTHING WITH???
We all have them ~ for me, well, it’s really any of my FAVORITE things, but, usually involves a delicious salad, shaved ice or ice cream!
