Post workout, I had a chocolate covered strawberry thinkThin bar. Yum!
A few days ago, my stepmom texted me to tell me that they have pumpkin spice frozen yogurt at Red Mango now. So, of course, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. After the gym, I called my brother up to try to convince him and my sister-in-law to meet me for frozen yogurt.
Lucky for him, he agreed to meet me.
Since Saladworks is right next door to Red Mango, we decided to go there for lunch first. I have been wanting to try Saladworks, so it worked out perfectly.
I did the make your own salad. I started with romaine lettuce and added cucumbers, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, apple slices, and walnuts. You get to pick five toppings and anything else costs extra. I originally got salsa ranch dressing on the side. Then I saw they had pumpkin vinaigrette, so I decided to try that out too.
The salad was more on the expensive side – $10. But let me tell you, that pumpkin vinaigrette totally made it worth it. I was a little nervous to try it, because even though I love pumpkin, I didn’t know if I would love pumpkin dressing, but it was the best dressing that I’ve ever had. I even took the leftover dressing home with me to eat later. It was delicious.
My brother had the buffalo bleu salad, and my sister-in-law had a make your own southwest salad. The salads are big, so at least you feel like your getting your money’s worth.
I didn’t like the roasted red peppers very much, but the rest of my salad was perfect. I would definitely go back to Saladworks…but maybe on payday.
After our salads, we went next door to Red Mango for the pumpkin spice fro-yo.
Sadly, I wasn’t a big fan of the pumpkin spice flavor. It was a little too tart for me. Instead, I went with pomegranate and vanilla fro-yo with a ton of toppings.
This little lady loves her fro-yo:
It was quite a delicious afternoon!
Tonight, I have plans to meet up with my biggest loser group to run. The weather is getting chilly, so I’ll have to find some layers to run in.
Questions of the day:
- What do you run in during chilly weather? I used to just run on the treadmill.
- What’s your favorite restaurant?
- Favorite salad dressing? Favorite salad topping?
