Lunch Time Yum
I usually don't do lunch posts but I am trying to start. On Monday I did not bring a lunch so Kiki, my coworker and friend, and I ran down to a salad bar place called Wildflower on Sansome St. I love this place. It has two large salad bars, one with prepared food and one that is a regular salad bar. I try not to spend too much money when I am there though, they do everything by weight and I try to keep it under $10. I was about $6.50 this time and I was very proud of that!
I had some cellophane noodles, which I love, some broccoli, and a cabbage and chicken salad. I added some corn and pea salad, a seaweed salad which is delicious, and then piled my plate with spinach, tomatoes, sprouts, olives, red peppers, mandarin oranges and some avocado.
This totally filled me up for the rest of the afternoon, plus I thought that it was fairly healthy. I try to fill myself up with vegetables every day to curb my real cravings which are mainly for anything made from flour. Bread, pasta, etc. i could probably live on noodles and toast and be a happy girl for eternity. But then I would get scurvy which would be sad...
Kiki wanted me to show her salad as well. She said she did a less healthy version, which means she added lots of blue cheese etc. I thought it looked pretty good too. Plus this place is about 8 blocks away, so we get exercise by going there. Hmmm, not sure if that really works like that!
