"Fresh Crunchies for Healthy Munchies"
How are all of you!? Disney is FREEZING but that is not stopping us! We have powered through Busch Gardens, Downtown Disney, and 3 sets of outlets in the past couple of days and have big plans for Disney World theme-park hopping tomorrow. I have built a beautiful wardrobe for my professional life in DC that is rapidly approaching (can't wait!)
The highlight of today was a new restaurant we scoped out for lunch called Sweet Tomatoes. I am sure some of you have tried this before, but it was my first experience and I loved it there!!! So many fresh vegetables!!
I have been craving some fresh veggies since we left Little Rock, and this plate definitely hit the spot! Do you see the size of that plate? I cleaned it without hesitation. My favorite veggie of the day was the peeled butternut squash...So YUM!
Then I found the soup bar. And y'all know it the Lentil's were screaming "Eat Me!" soooo I did! Here's what the label said: Vegetarian options! WHOOP! ...and here's the close up of the NOM eats...
Paired with a whole wheat biscuit, which I would not necessary classify part of a "solution" since they contain fatty buttermilk, but it was just as delicious as I anticipated! ... It legit melts in your mouth like "buttah," In all it was a perfect lunch!
In other news, I FINALLY got a book I have been wanting to read for a long time called "Too Big To Fail" which explains what really happened in the financial crisis of 2009. It's 600 pages, so its a good thing I have lots of car time coming up to get through it. I expect jaw-dropping tidbits to be revealed and the corrupt relationship between the federal government and the banks to be explained in plain terms that I can actually comprehend. We'll see how it goes.
Just as a small point of information, this is what the author, Andrew Sorkin, looks like.
Just wanted to make sure we were all aware. :)
I'm off to bed! Big day tomorrow and plenty of reading (i.e. dreaming of Andrew Sorkin) to do.
