I think I’m becoming more urbanized because I’ve been eating so many meals out lately. I feel like a New Yorker. :) This is certainly not budget-friendly, but I have to admit that it’s really working out for my super busy lifestyle recently.
And hey, this awesome salad was only $6 from the local deli. Considering some of the pricey ingredients, it’s not a bad deal.
Spinach, goat cheese, onions, carrots, sunflower seeds, golden raisins, and lots and lots of honey mustard. Although this salad looks small, it’s really filling because it’s so energy-dense with the cheese, fruit, and nuts.
And yes, now I’m at the clinic! My drive from Tennessee to Charlotte was fast and painless.
Hey – it’s Maggie Valley!
Ate an apple along the way (anyone else steal food out of their parents’ fridge upon departure?):
I was listening to the radio on the drive, and in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Vince Vaughn remarked (paraphrasing, obviously):
Keep your mind where your body is. Your mind and body should be equally present. If you’re at work, concentrate on being at work; if you’re at home with your family, don’t think about work.
(However, taking breaks from your job to read this blog is perfectly acceptable. Heh.)
Isn’t that a lovely thought? Since I seem to be juggling so many balls in the air, it’s easy for me to “get ahead of myself” and think about other stuff when I should just focus on being present. Not only would I get more stuff done, I’d probably enjoy life a little more, too. 🙂
I always take drinks and fruit and granola bars when I leave my parents house for a trip. They are my parents, after all! 🙂
