Good Morning! Here I am, keeping my promise to blog on a regular basis. I told you I had NOT deserted you and I meant it. Of course, I had to come back for the biggest, most fun party of the week-What I Ate Wednesday, hostessed by the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons. I’ve missed participating and I’ve missed reading all the crazy wonderful posts from all of the other party-goers. So here I am to share and give you all the opportunity to drool.
There are a lot of veggies in this post, well…there are Always a lot of veggies in my posts so nothing new there. These are all foods that I ate while on my two-week visit to Clearwater, Florida. I had a great time and ate a lot. Fortunately, all of it was amazingly healthy so I don’t think I’ll have any worries when I get back to my Weight Watchers meeting on Saturday. Here we go! My friend Gail found an incredible restaurant called the Green Market Cafe. This is a great find for vegetarians and great choices for non-veggies too. I ate there five times and tried five different things. So there is definitely flexibility for vegetarians.
This was the Baby Bella salad. Huge amount of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and steamed mushrooms, topped with gorgonzola cheese and house dressing. Very filling and tasty. I’ve never seen such huge salads as they have here.
This is their Waldorf Salad. Again, lots of greens, apples, walnuts, dried cranberries, goat cheese and poppy-seed dressing. Again, amazingly filling and delicious.
We had to experience Hamburger Mary’s and if you’re ever in Clearwater, you have to give it a dry. A drag show and a burger. What could be better. This is the Huge black bean burger that I had.
It came with a large side salad. I had to eat half of this before I took the picture so that you could see it. Excellent!
We had quite a wonderful experience at the Buddhist Temple in Tampa. Every Sunday they have a market with all kinds of incredible foods. Things we had never seen before or even ever heard of. I went with something I’ve heard of and am learning to love.
Pad Thai. It was delicious. It was a huge portion and I ate every bit! My other favorite thing there was sweet bean pie. Like a little apple turnover but with bean paste inside that was so good. Didn’t get a photo…I ate it too fast!
I’m home now and starting on trying to eat more routine things. If I had remembered to get cabbage yesterday, I would have been making my Weight Watchers veggie soup today. I’ll have to go out and get some. I need to get back on track.
That’s What I Ate Wednesday for me for today. Be sure to head over to Peas & Crayons when you’re finished here to join all the fun!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!
