Readers, it’s time to meet the Everythingtarian inner circle.
First up, meet one of my best friends Ashley…
…and one of my other besties, Megan…
Aren’t they just gorgeous? Here is us altogether this weekend…
I know, I know. You don’t have to say it: we are probably the most the most good looking group of girls you’ve ever seen. Stop with the compliments. You probably want to see more beautifulness from our weekend, but people, this is a food blog!
Back to the eats!
The 12-mile run on Saturday morning went gorgeously – the weather was perfect, and I maintained a solid 10:00/mile pace, thoroughly enjoying my run. Post-sweat, I devoured this…
1 cup Plain Chobani Greek yogurt
1 crumbled Apple Pie Larabar
1 smashed banana
1 heaping spoonful (2 tbsp.) Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB
Amazing. To those who say you need meat in order to get your protein: this baby contained about 25 grams of it. Booyah.
Mid-afternoon, my ladies made it to Madtown! Since they had been car-bound for the past 4 hours, it was time to get walking and eating. Enter a 1 mile walk for a late lunch to a Madison foodie staple.
Reason #3,469,078 I love my friends: they are fully supportive of beginning a meal with deep-fried cheese curds + beer.
Like yours truly, they also advocate balance.
For our meal, we all ordered the same thing: roasted veggie sandwich – grilled eggplant, portabella mushroom, wood-roasted red pepper and zucchini, with goat cheese and black olive tapenade on toasted country bread – and a side salad.
After shopping for several hours (and Ashley being the only one to buy something – a peanut-shaped eraser, no lie), we decided it was time for dinner dessert.
Apparently, Uno’s has this gigantic peanut butter cup topped with ice cream, but when we got there, they said they didn’t have it. Not okay Server Brian! Instead, we settled on this lovely.
Such a rough letdown ;).
Then we preceded to play with Photo Booth for far too long.
With a spread of toppings: PB, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl PB, raisins, dark chocolate chips, almonds + walnuts, maple syrup and butter, plus strawberries on the side. Only the best for my friends.
After brekkie + a 2-hour long walk along the lake, my ladies had to hit the road :(. Love you girls – thanks soooo much for visiting!
However, yours truly has enough to do to keep her busy all day.
- Grocery shopping
- Buy wedding presents
- Clean apartment
- Apply for a part-time/weekend job
- Organize, organize, organize!
- Eat lunch
- 5pm Pilates class
Three out of nine isn’t a bad start.
That would be an Ezekiel English muffin, Sunshine Breakfast patty, spinach + BBQ sauce alongside carrots drizzled with regular peanut butter. It was all washed down with a cold, refreshing glass of skim milk.
Alrighty, now it’s off to complete the to-do list and add productivity to the inner circle.
When was the last time you ate dessert for dinner? Please be as descriptive as possible, so we can drool about eating dessert for dinner everyday.
