To say that this weekend was busy would be a bit of an understatement. But as you probably know, busy weekends are one of my favorite things, so I’m totally not complaining.
Friday night, I got to enjoy dinner with some friends at Fresca, one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond. The entire menu is vegetarian, and I’ve never had something I didn’t enjoy. Alex and I shared the kale pizza and the pesto pizza. The kale pizza is still my favorite, but the pesto pizza was awesome as well. Lauren also got the kale pizza, while Sarah ventured out and tried the lentil burger.
They were fueling up for the Monument 10K and Alex and I were just being supportive 😉 If you live in Richmond, you should definitely check this place out. Good prices, great food, and awesome ingredients! (For more Richmond restaurant reviews, click here!)
Saturday, Alex and I headed up to D.C. to catch the Nationals game, with his sister, her boyfriend, and lots of friends! I’d never been to that stadium, and the weather was absolutely perfect. I filled up on popcorn and french fries… sometimes it’s necessary 😉
After the game, we grilled out at a friend’s house, and black bean burgers were grilled especially for me and Alex. We also sliced up some zucchini and tossed that on the grill as well. (Sneaking in vegetables when I can!)
Sunday, we went to the Smithsonian Institution National Air & Space Museum outside of the city. It was a pretty cool museum with lots to see. I’m glad I had my camera with me, even though I only had my 55mm lens.
We made it back to Richmond Sunday evening, and I’m pleased to say it was a fantastic weekend. I might not have filled up on my usual fruits and vegetables, but I’ve learned that my diet won’t crash in a single weekend. A bag of popcorn or some french fries won’t make or break me, although I will say that I noticed I don’t have nearly as much energy when I’m not filling up on healthy food. I guess it really is all about balance!
