Sunday

by Meghann on August 9, 2009

Sundays are always my favorite day of the weekend. While Saturdays always seem to be very go-go-go, Sundays tend to be much more relaxed. Today was a good example of the perfect relaxing Sunday. ๐Ÿ™‚

After spending the morning with Derek and Maddie I headed to the Village Health Market to meet Anne P. and Katrina for lunch.

Katrina is a Tampa local who writes a wonderful gluten free blog. We have been trying to meet up for a while and I’m so glad our schedules finally meshed. Katrina and her husband adopted a puppy the same day I welcomed Maddie into my life, so we had lots of puppy talk flowing around the table.

Last time I had lunch at the Village Health Market I opted for the salad bar, but this time the selections of wraps and sandwiches was what intrigued me.

I ordered the Kale Salad, Tabouli, and Hummus Wrap.

Talk about Yum!!!!!! This wrap was so delicious and fresh tasting. I have not been able to get over how good this was all day, I want to go back to Tampa just to order this wrap again.

The wrap came with a big pickle and some veggie chips.

The Kale & Hummus combo was just too good, that the veggie chips went mainly untouched, but the ones I did have were great.

With lunch I sipped on my favorite Morraccan Mint Honest Green Tea.

Anne and I split another wonderful Sweet Potato Cookie for dessert.

Just as good as I remembered.

After lunch we said our good byes to Katrina and her husband and Anne and I decided to take advantage of the anniversary celebration happening around the store.

20% off everything plus oodles of samples! Our purses were overflowing with all the free swag!

Trust me I purchased plenty of legitimate items as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On the way back to Orlando I stopped at my sister, Kelly, and her boyfriend’s new place. Maddie finally got to meet her cousin Oliver.

She was one pooped puppy when she got back in the car!

By the time I got back on the road it was already after 5:00 and I needed a snack. Luckily I had a bag full of samples to choose from for a quick bite. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I grabbed the Spelt Sourdough Pretzel sample bag.

It’s amazing how the two pretzels did the trick. I as able to unpack my car and run to Publix before coming home for dinner.

I was not in the mood to cook anything so I headed to the pantry for a quick fix.

90 seconds later I got this.

To bulk up the pre-made meal I added some steamed kale and greens beans that either had to be eaten or thrown away.

1/2 a Lavash Wrap as well.

The combo worked and it was the perfect quick fix.

For dessert I had a Trader Joe’s Molasses cookie.

Is the weekend over already?!?!

Good thing I have a short week ahead of me and the Healthy Living Summit to look forward to at the end of it. Yay! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Congrat to the Newlyweds!

First of all I need to give a big CONGRATS to the new Mr. and Mrs. Diaz! Even though I had never met either of them before last night (they’re Derek’s friends) I have to be honest when I say I shed a tear or two during the ceremony. It was a beautiful service and more ยป
