I work from home, and it’s ridiculously sunny out. The perfect way to break out of my office? A hot lunch date with an also-plaid wearing stud. On our run Monday night (5.13 miles in 48 minutes, not bad for me!) Alyssa mentioned the great food at Atlas Diner. When she told me about the under 550 calorie meal menu, I knew I had to check it out!
I try not to count calories, however: I do enjoy going to a restaurant, eating a meal, and knowing I’m not eating an entire day’s worth of calories in just my lunch.
Enter: The somewhere under 550 cal, Mediterranean, whole-wheat chicken pasta salad. I’m a sucker for feta, and had to test it out.
The verdict: incredible. The chicken was so flavorful, and the veggies tasted FRESH! Danny complained that I only care to take photos of my own food, so here he is with something turkey, and sweet potato fries.
I cannot WAIT to get back there soon. I was impressed with the large portion size, as well as the fact that their healthy entrees still included some cheeeeeeeese. 😉
Back to typing away, and being furiously confused about html and website building. Work is a learning experience, really. I’m hoping to get in a long run tonight to ease my nerves.
