Eating on vacation is so much more fun than a regular day. And not just because I can bring my camera with me everywhere… Poor Eric had to accompany me as I acted like a tourist, snapping pictures everywhere we went.
So it’s fun to show you some food that’s a little outside of my
Monday morning, I woke up early (for no apparent reason) and went to the gym for a quick workout. When I came back, I had a bowl of pomegranate Chobani with some frozen raspberries.
I know this sounds like a typical breakfast but it’s not. I only ever buy plain 0% Chobani, because I try to cut down on the added sugar. But I really wanted to try a fruity flavor and I fell in love with this one. Seriously, SO good. I’ll be dreaming of this for awhile.
Eric and I ran errands all morning, getting him furniture and things. It was torture walking through Ikea knowing I couldn’t actually buy anything that wouldn’t fit into my suitcase. I basically wanted to just move into the store, permanently.
We stopped by Taco Cabana, which was sort of like Chipotle with more options. I got a bowl filled with deliciousness.
3 Tips for eating healthy at a Mexican Restaurant
- Go vegetarian (not just because I heart vegetables, but so you’re not getting stuff cooked in lard)
- Skip the cheese and sour cream, and go for guacamole instead. Still creamy!
- Load up on salsa, rather than sauces. Salsa are basically all veggies!
We went to Uptown Dallas to try a bar called Tate’s, known for their Blackbird Julep. I can see why.
Look at all that fruit! It’s like they knew I’m obsessed with blueberries.
I also had a “Skinny Dip” Martini, as well as a plate of roasted goat cheese bruchetta.
I was going to get the hummus and veggies, which might have been a little healthier, but I always get hummus, so it was fun to try something new. I loved that it came out warm, with lots of peppers and tomatoes on top. The goat cheese had a perfect amount of seasoning, to give it a little kick. I might trade my feta obsession for a goat cheese obsession.
I loved Dallas so much. Not just the food, the city seemed to be bubbling with life! It was huge, and I wish I could have done more exploring. I totally can’t wait to go back! But I’m now in Ohio, visiting family and friends, for the rest of the week. I like Columbus too, and not just because they have the worlds best veggie burger and the most delicious ice cream in the universe. (I will be getting both of those while I’m home.)
