A Few Favorite Things

Chicken Pesto Power Salad
A pesto chicken power salad with kale, quinoa, avocado, hard-boiled egg, and sunflower seeds — from Addy’s Sandwich Bar and a frequent lunch of mine

 

I’ve been living at Addy’s Sandwich Bar and Greenleaf Juicing Company during the work day. There’s something about sitting at a desk 12 hours a day that makes a girl crave some fresh air vegetables. I’m pretty content to sustain solely on power salads and steamed soups, but the occasional pâté sandwich and cup of soup isn’t a bummer either.

Since I haven’t been in the kitchen except to blend a smoothie in the morning [or lets be honest, the night before because I want every precious minute of sleep possible] or to feed Roma, here’s a few things I’ve been bookmarking for later:

+this arugula cannelloni and feta salad with creamy avocado dressing

+I want to eat all of the rosemary strawberry buttermilk muffins

+mmmm, vindaloo that just happens to be paleo 

+bring on the cauliflower and brown rice gratin

+there’s no such thing as too much (marmalade) cake

And some bonus travel stuff:

+I plan on eating my weight in Francesinhas in Porto

+the Portuguese are big into tripe, and I’m not usually, but I’m going to give it a whirl

    12 hours a day??! I can barely handle 8! But I guess since it’s tax season you’re working more than normal right? I was looking at your recommended places to eat in Portland and loved the look of the salt and straw ice cream place!! What I really want is a place where I can get a vegan chocolate peanut butter shake. I hope somewhere in Portland can offer this to me! :)

      Yep it is the season. It’ll be over April 16. Almost there! Back to Eden. That’s where you’ll want to go for the shake. They have some of the best. Everything is vegan.
