Last night I went out to dinner to celebrate 7 years of being in business with our staff from our law practice. I was concerned about the challenges eating out may pose, but was surprised with how easy it was.
Prior to bringing our meals out the chef brought us a complimentary taster, this was an onion soup with a crostini. The soup was all natural and delicious, I gave my crostini to someone else. Phew I passed the first test!
How did I go on the bread roll test? Ahhhh I LOVE bread rolls! The waiter was serving everyone a beautiful selection of gourmet bread rolls. I find chewy crusty breads with lashings of olive oil or butter irresistible. But just like a non-smoker wouldn’t ever contemplate a cigarette, I didn’t look twice at the bread rolls! I politely said to the waiter, “no thanks not from me, I am a non-breader!” (No not really) I just said no thanks and a roll never landed on my plate.
For the entrée I chose the scallops, easy and simple. The mains were very easy to, I was thinking lamb or salmon? I went lamb, which was accompanied with a tomato side. All ingredients were natural, real foods.
Desert was a not brainer… I didn’t even look at the menu. I got a beautiful peppermint tea instead.
I left the restaurant feeling satisfied and not over full like I usually would. The extra bonus was that it was great to wake up this morning feeling light and energetic.
