Blogger Dinner

in All Posts

Real life meet-up time!


Before leaving for dinner, I first had to get through my workday.  I resorted to two afternoon snacks… mostly because I was bored and munchy.  Of course, I had yogurt and granola.


And I had a small bowl of Grape Nuts.


This evening, Meghann, Melissa, and I met up for a very fun dinner at Ethos, a hippie vegan restaurant near downtown Orlando.


It was very good!  I was impressed by the menu.  You wouldn’t have been able to tell my meal was vegan at all!


I had pecan-encrusted eggplant, steamed veggies, and mashed potatoes with gravy.  How do they make vegan gravy, anyway?


After dinner, we headed over to a fro-yo place called Cefiore.


I can’t believe 1 oz. of this stuff only has 25 calories (and it’s fat free!).  I got the mini serving, which worked out to about 100 calories of lovely, delicious, creamy yogurt.


The topping options are awesome. I had blackberries, strawberries, and coconut.


This is what happens when three bloggers get together:




Good night! Time to get my race-face on before tomorrow’s 5K!

    Ha – so funny, all the cameras. Looks like a fun night. All the vegan gravy recipes I’ve seen involve cashews and nutritional yeast.
