Tonight was one of those random nights.  We found ourselves aimlessly wandering the aisles of Target and buying stuff like the Bark Off device (which doesn’t seem to work on Maggie…).

IMG_0964

We also cleaned the house from top to bottom, did a ton of gardening, and generally got our lives in order.  Plus… I went to Hot Yoga, which felt amazing on my knee.  I skipped all the high lunges and used a modified low lunge instead.  And I did all the upper body moves from Boot Camp

 

A very productive Saturday, indeed.  πŸ˜‰

 

I had a really stand-out snack today – broiled grapefruit.

IMG_0959

I just sliced it in half and cooked it at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes, drizzled with maple syrup, and broiled on low for about 2 minutes (watch carefully!).

 

And some rosemary bread with herb spread following hot yoga.

The Husband was in charge of dinner – SCORE!

 

Millet, peanut satay sauce, stir-fried vegetables, and pinto beans.

Oh, I have a question for any Southerners out there…

 

If I were to go to Atlanta for just one afternoon, what should I do and where should I eat? 

We are only going to be there for a few hours tomorrow for an out-and-back road trip, and we want to maximize the time we’ll be in Hot-lanta.  πŸ™‚ Any good vegetarian restaurants with outside dining, for example?  Where do we have to go in Atlanta?

    Love Target! My fiance’s new job is working for the Target company in and I am looking forward to our discount. πŸ˜‰

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write March 12, 2011, 10:15 pm

    My husband and I are still trying to figure out what to do tonight. Maybe we’ll go wander Tarjay. I do love that store!

  • Courtney March 12, 2011, 10:16 pm

    LOVE Target!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  • Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) March 12, 2011, 10:21 pm

    I never in a million years would have though to broil grapefruit. Then again, I don’t like grapefruit so that could explain it. πŸ˜‰

  • Rosi March 12, 2011, 10:27 pm

    Target is one of my favorites! The Bark-Off! totally works on my pup. She gets noisy sometimes in her kennel and that works like a charm.

  • Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete March 12, 2011, 10:30 pm

    No aimless shopping tonight — but I did plenty of that last night! I swear I could spend hours in Target!

  • sarah (sarah learns) March 12, 2011, 10:38 pm

    i love target!! i don’t know how you can “window-shop” in target?!? i never leave that place empty-handed or under budget!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:00 pm

      Me neither!!!

  • Alex @ Healing Beauty March 12, 2011, 10:42 pm

    I was aimlessly shopping at bed, bath, and beyond tonight and ended up buying what I thought was a cool “reed garden”, with two votives and a reed diffuser. Well, for $5 I didn’t even bother looking in the box because the box said it was missing the rocks that go on the plate that sits underneath the votives and diffuser. I got home and the plate (which was glass), was broken into pieces in the bottom of the box. Since it was on clearance I can’t return it but now I need to find a plate to set the candles and diffuser on πŸ™‚ Fail.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:01 pm

      hahahah ;( you should’ve gone to target.

  • Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 12, 2011, 10:51 pm

    “Millet, peanut satay sauce, stir-fried vegetables, and pinto beans.”— that looks awesome!

    as does the broiled grapefruit!

    Hotlanta…Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square. When I used to live in NC and SC and we’d go to ATL, it was all about the retail therapy πŸ™‚

  • Melissa March 12, 2011, 10:54 pm

    I love to broil grapefruit, but I put brown sugar on top. Seriously good and replaces a dessert for me. Put foil on the pan though so clean-up is a breeze.

  • stephanie March 12, 2011, 10:55 pm

    The aquarium is amazing! but if you don’t have that much time and are looking for places to eat, there are several RuSans! There is also a burger place called the Vortex in Little 5 Points. They have an amazing burger selection, but all their burgers can be ordered as black bean/veggie selections. Enjoy!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:04 pm

      Is Little 5 Points a cute neighborhood to walk around?

      • J March 13, 2011, 7:43 pm

        Totally cute! Tons of thrift stores, fun shops, etc.

        • Marie March 13, 2011, 10:29 pm

          Also kinda sketchy….mostly if it’s later.

      • stephanie March 14, 2011, 10:41 pm

        it’s great! tons of bars, funky stores, vintage, and great people watching – have fun in ATL!

  • Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing March 12, 2011, 10:59 pm

    Dude, the Husband is a rockin’ cook! That looks phenomenal! Have fun in Hot-Lanta πŸ™‚

    I was wondering if you could comment/give your opinion on this articles about the pitfalls of eating grains – http://madaboutcrossfit.com/02/2011/why-we-dont-eat-grains/. I know you, along with other bloggers I read, seem to eat a diet relatively heavy in grains and I was curious about your opinion! Love your blog!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 8:50 am

      As a vegetarian, I believe grains are the foundation for a healthy diet. I’m not a RD but grains provide carbohydrates, which is your body’s primary source of energy. High-protein diets have been shown to cause a whole wheat of problems. I think it can be a good idea to reduce or limit wheat if you have digestive problems, but there’s a ton of great wheat alternatives out there. For someone who is as active as I am, I could never get by on limiting grains (especially being a vegetarian).

      Also, not a fan of any eating style that completely eliminates a major food group (well, except meat!).

      • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 8:51 am

        hahahah *whole HOST of problems

        • Katie March 13, 2011, 10:56 am

          can i like this this?

          I’m a carb-o-holic, meaning there my main source of energy, can’t live without them. But I do have a question, when you say it’s a good idea to reduce or limit wheat products if you have digestive problems, your talking about celiac correct? Because I may have that and when you have that you have to eliminate wheat and gluten, but maybe thats what you meant. (wheat of problems lol)

        • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 4:03 pm

          Katie – well, I can only speak from what the husband has seen in his clinic, but there’s some evidence that a lot of people are sensitive to wheat products but don’t realize it. i.e. you get bloated but you just chalk it up to normal digestion. NoMeatAthlete.com has some more resources about this. I’ve been trying to make an effort to mix up my grain sources for this reason; plus, eating a variety of grains is obviously healthier!

          Also, I was thinking about this comment during yoga and I decided that I wanted to add that if some people don’t want to eat grains, well… whatever. More power to them. I don’t want to sit here and say a certain style of eating is ‘wrong.’ I just think it’s just not right for me.

  • J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) March 12, 2011, 11:42 pm

    I lived in Atlanta for almost two years before moving back to NY and I still have no idea what to do there, lol. Hope you find better sights than we did!

    Your dinner looks so yummy. I’m intrigued by the broiled grapefruit. Hmm… Maybe I’ll try that!

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 12, 2011, 11:42 pm

    Roasted grapefruit is one of my favorites breakfasts. I put cinnamon and coriander and salt on top. Mmmm!

    In Atlanta – if you’re here for brunch – I’d hit Top Flr, Rosebud (that’s where I’m having brunch tomorrow!), or Watershed. TAP is pretty good too… and they have roasted grapefruit. πŸ™‚

    Dinner is harder on a Sunday, but my favorites right now are: La Pietra Cucina, The Livingston, ONE Midtown Kitchen (awesome patio), or Sotto Sotto.

    None of these are vegetarian, but all have some fantastic veggie options. πŸ™‚

  • Alex March 12, 2011, 11:54 pm

    Born and raised Atlantan recommendations:
    If you’re planning brunch/lunch- Ria’s Bluebird, Sun in my Belly, or the West Egg.
    If you’re thinking more late afternoon or dinner- F2O in midtown has a lovely outdoor patio and tons of vegetarian options, Tin Drum Cafe for Asian, Tin Lizzy’s for tacos/Mexican
    I would love to know where you end up! It is supposed to be a lovely 71* afternoon here tomorrow!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:06 pm

      We’re coming tomorrow now – I hope the weather is still nice!

      • Macrae March 13, 2011, 9:30 pm

        Cafe Sunflower and Soul Vegetarian are supposed to be great. It just matters where you are staying and what’s close. Beware though, Atlanta traffic is the horrible, may not want to travel to far!
        I highly recommend walking around the VA-Highlands. Soooo cute and tons of shops, etc!!!

  • Marie March 13, 2011, 12:03 am

    The Grit is amazing–but it’s in Athens, not Atlanta….if you were up for an excursion though… πŸ˜›

  • Erin March 13, 2011, 12:17 am

    Three words…Two Urban Licks. Amazing! Have fun in ATL!

  • Jen G. March 13, 2011, 12:19 am

    One of my best friends lives in Atlanta, and every time I visit, I go to Cafe Sunflower. It’s an incredible, vegetarian restaurant with tons of vegan offerings as well. As someone who rarely gets to go to a good all veggie restaurant, it makes me happy — and a bit overwhelmed by all the fantastic choices!

  • Shruti March 13, 2011, 12:20 am

    I am regular reader and I love reading your blog!
    I was in Atlanta recently and of all the vegetarian restaurants, I loved Cafe Sunflower. Nice cozy dinner place close to downtown! Enjoyed their Pomegranate-Lemonade!

  • Lee March 13, 2011, 12:24 am

    Cafe Sunflower is really good, R. Thomas, 5 Seasons Brewery (lots of veggie options), the Vortex (burgers but lots of veggie options). There really are a ton of vegetarian options in all restaurants here.

    For patios – you could do the Park Tavern, Brewhouse Cafe, Front Page News, all have veggie options.

    If you guys need a dining partner, let me know!

    • Laura March 13, 2011, 3:37 am

      Cafe Sunflower is my vote–they have a lot of interesting items and are completely vegetarian. There are 2 locations, my favorite is the one at the corner of Hammond Dr. and Roswell Rd (off the Roswell Rd. exit on 285, you get to 285 via 85)

      There are also Loving Hut locations, there’s one off 1-85 exit 99 (I believe you turn left and stay on Jimmy Carter Blvd. until it turns into Holcomb Bridge, after that it’s about 2 mi. on your right after Spalding Rd).

      I was very disappointed with R. Thomas–not as many veggie options as you’d expect them to have. But my meat-eater friends were happy.

    • Katherine: Unemployed March 13, 2011, 6:36 pm

      Isn’t R. Thomas gone now? If I were you, I’d check out Seasons 52!

      • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 13, 2011, 9:58 pm

        R. Thomas is still there! The place next to it, Shipfiefer’s, closed. It’s now a pretty tasty Persian place called Sufi’s.

  • Amanda March 13, 2011, 12:25 am

    Wandering Target aimlessly is one of my favorite past-times. It’s also my therapy & where I go to think! Mine has a starbucks so I get coffee therapy too : D oh Target <3 <3 <3

  • Lisa March 13, 2011, 12:28 am

    I love grapefruit. I’ve never in my life heard of broiling it…..I’m fascinated by this!!

  • Alexis March 13, 2011, 12:31 am

    You should go to Buford Highway and get the most amazing Chinese/Korean/Vietnamese food. Buford Highway is amazing!

  • Mary March 13, 2011, 12:34 am

    Hey! sooo I live in Atlanta & I love R Thomas. The Flying Biscuit is awesome as well & has a couple locations depending on where you will be. As for what you should do… I know it sounds random but the Dekalb Farmer’s Market is one of my favorite places. Just google or yelp it because it is so much more than a standard farmer’s market. If you’re into museum-y things, the MLK center, Coca-Cola, the CDC, the Carter Center, & CNN are all really interesting & definitely worth a visit if any strike your fancy. And if you just want to enjoy the sunshine go to Piedmont Park!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:08 pm

      Thanks Mary! I think a park sounds perfect because we’ll have the dogs with us.

  • Cindi March 13, 2011, 12:53 am

    I think you’ve said before that you don’t like aquariums – but the one in Atlanta is amazing!!! It’s the largest in the world & you can see whale sharks, which are my fave! We scuba’d there for J’s 30th & loved it! Have fun – drive safe!!!

  • dpg March 13, 2011, 1:06 am

    I second Mary’s suggestion of the Dekalb Farmer’s Market.

    Collectively, the staff are probably fluent in scores of different languages. It’s really eye-opening to realize, for the first time, just how many languages are spoken in the city where one has lived for years.

    The Market’s hummus (available from the deli section) is great, as are the fresh pasta, and oatmeal bread.

    Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

    • Anya March 13, 2011, 10:59 am

      I third this. It’s a foodie’s dream. You could even go shopping there and have dinner at the hot/salad bars!

      • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:08 pm

        Oooo ok this sounds awesome!

        • Marie March 13, 2011, 10:31 pm

          It is an amazing place! So much great produce, specialty foods/breads, wines, etc.

  • Julie (A Case of the Runs) March 13, 2011, 1:11 am

    BOO about the barking device not working. My puppy barks a lot because there are so many other barking dogs that live around us. They kind of just set each other off.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 13, 2011, 1:16 am

  • Emma (Namaste Everyday) March 13, 2011, 1:18 am

    broiled grapefruit! I must try it! πŸ™‚

  • Melissa March 13, 2011, 3:24 am

    You should totally go to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens since it’s going to be so nice outside tomorrow. I could be a little biased because I work there, but I actually went today (on my day off) because it was so nice and there are so many flowers blooming. We are also right next to Piedmont Park (which another poster said to go).

    The Gardens is close to a lot of places that people said to go to eat. I’d also say go to the Vortex in Little 5, if nothing else for the atmosphere (such a cool place to people watch), but their food is really good as well.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:09 pm

      I LOVEEEEEEEEE Botanical Gardens but the Husband seriously hates them πŸ™ How is this possible?!!?!?!?

  • Kiran March 13, 2011, 3:34 am

    I am so excited you have family over. Missing mine so much.

  • Meghan F March 13, 2011, 5:43 am

    For brunch, J. Christopher’s is amazing and has multiple Atlanta locations. For lunch I would suggest The World Peace Cafe off of Hammond Drive, the Tempeh Reuben is sooooo good. For dinner Ru Shan’s is a great sushi place in Buckhead. For dinner and AMAZING date night place is The Sun Dial. It sits atop The Westin Hotel in downtown Atlanta near the Cnn Center, Coco-Cola Museum, and Georgia Aquarium. The Westin Hotel is circular shaped and the Sun dial rotates at the top of it so you can get some amazing views of downtown and the rest of the city. The Sun Dial is a must see Atlanta highlight!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:09 pm

      Wow, the sun dial sounds awesome – maybe we’ll do that too!

  • anne March 13, 2011, 6:05 am

    definitely soul vegetarian. it’s all vegan “comfort food”. they even have two locations in atlanta.
    i couldn’t find their website but here’s a link with the directions
    http://www.happycow.net/north_america/usa/georgia/atlanta/

    in general, happycow.net is my go-to site when restaurant searching in a new city.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:17 pm

      Happy Cow is a great resource, I agree!

  • Leah March 13, 2011, 7:44 am

    R. Thomas has an AWESOME menu catering to vegetarians and vegans….deeeeelish!!! i recommend the thai peanut bowl. They have a great patio too!

  • Megan March 13, 2011, 7:52 am

    My favorite brunch place is Rise N’ Dine near Emory (http://risendineatl.com/). I also highly recommend Urban Pl8 (www.urbanpl8.com) for brunch on Sunday. I’ve been for dinner during the week and it is amazing. They are very veg friendly and can make almost their entire menu vegan/gluten free.

    I’ve heard great things about Cafe Sunflower but have yet to make it up there. I also recommend Yeah! Burger (www.yeahburger.com) of Flip Burger (http://www.flipburgerboutique.com/) if you’re in the mood for a burger and fries. Both have great veggie burgers and Yeah burger lets you customize your toppings while flip burger is owned by Richard Blais of Top Chef fame.

    Do you do dairy products? If you do, there is an amazing frozen yogurt place in Decatur called Yogurt Tap (http://www.theyogurttap.com/) that I completely love.

    Hope you enjoy your visit! ps I’ve been and avid reader of your blog for a while, but this is my first comment! Thanks for all the work you do with Operation Beautiful. I volunteer with an after school group for middle school girls and want to try and incorporate your message in some of our activities soon.

  • Lauren March 13, 2011, 8:36 am

    So funny we did the EXACT same thing!! We went out for Thai and then spent an hour browsing the aisles of Target at 9pm. It was actually quite fun for a date night. πŸ˜‰

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey March 13, 2011, 8:42 am

    What a fun night! I need to clean my house top to bottom – that’s on my list for the day!!

  • Kaitlin March 13, 2011, 8:49 am

    When I go to Atlanta, one of my favorite places to go is Decatur-a suburb not too far away from the downtown. It has some cool, artsy shops, and a lot of fun places to eat and drink. I like Farm Burger, which has a really good quinoa burger and sweet potato fries, and almost everything there comes from their farm in Athens, Georgia. Across the street is a really good, cheap Mexican place, Taquira del Sol. I also like Mu Lan’s for Chinese food (they make really good tofu).

    • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 13, 2011, 9:43 am

      Love Decatur and Taqueria… but Taqueria is closed on Sundays. πŸ™

      • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:19 pm

        Quinoa Burger sounds epic.

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 13, 2011, 8:55 am

    I finally understand the Target love! When my friend and I took a road trip to the US this year, we ended up spending hours in that store! πŸ˜€

  • Ashley March 13, 2011, 9:02 am

    R Thomas grill and World Peace Cafe both have a lot of vegetarian options. Oh and Big Chow Grill- a make your on stir fry grill πŸ™‚

  • Tammy March 13, 2011, 9:04 am

    Hi Caitlin,
    This is sort of off topic but do you know of good apps for finding vegetarian/vegan restaurants? I recall you listing one or two awhile back but I cannot seem to find that post! Thanks so much. Have fun in Atlanta.
    Tammy
    P.S Glad the knee is feeling better. πŸ™‚ I had the same injury and it took much longer to heal.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:20 pm

  • Nicole March 13, 2011, 10:17 am

    Its nice out today in Atlanta!! I don’t go into the city a lot, but there are a ton of places in Decatur that are great. Someone here already said Farm Burger- I ate there for the first time on Friday and the Quinoa veggie burger is really good. Another bar with a great veggie burger is Thinking Man Tavern in Decatur and Meltons App and Tap..
    I am going vegetarian for lent, so the above posts are a great help to me too!!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:20 pm

      Way to go πŸ™‚ Going veg for lent sounds like a great idea to me!

  • Laura March 13, 2011, 10:21 am

    Go to Fritti-its an amazing pizza place in the highlands section of ATL and it has outdoor seating. It is very authentic pizza w/ a real wood burning oven and an Italian chef. I would also check out Piedmont park and go to Lenox mall for some shopping!

  • Anya March 13, 2011, 10:55 am

    Cafe Sunflower is an AMAZING vegetarian place, R.Thomas is a quirky health foodie kinda place (free range meat and tons of FANTASTIC veggie options), The Vortex is THE Atlanta burger place, with amazing veggie burgers and their vegetarian chili is super…. then of course, I would go to the Flying Biscuit because, well, that’s where I went in college like say every week. LOTS of options.

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:20 pm

      I wonder if your Flying Biscuit is the same as our Flying Biscuit???

      • Alex March 13, 2011, 9:17 pm

        It is the same!

  • Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun March 13, 2011, 11:33 am

    Laura @ Spring to the Table knows GREAT places!! I would go with one of her recs from above.

      Not awesomesauce at all. πŸ™

  • Nikki March 13, 2011, 11:54 am

    The best best best place to go in Atlanta is wander around downtown Decatur. The Decatur Diner is amazing, but my all-time favorite is the Iberian Pig. If you’re in the Buckhead or Midtown area, try Baraonda. If you’re looking for strictly veg restaurants, the Cafe Sunflower, hands down. Enjoy ATL! Home sweet home πŸ™‚

  • Parita @ myinnershakti March 13, 2011, 12:04 pm

    You must go to Lotta Frutta and if you have time, Sunflower Cafe. If you’re up for Indian try Mirch Masala (traditional North Indian) or Bhojanic (Indian tapas). Please let me know if you try any of these! I’d love to know what you thought! Have a great time in my city!!!

  • andrea March 13, 2011, 12:21 pm

    go to gladys knight chicken and waffles and try the waffles and a slice of their sweet potato cheesecake, its to die for!!

  • Mary March 13, 2011, 12:34 pm

    Broiled grapefruit sounds good. kind of along the concept of grilled fruit πŸ™‚

    I picked up my pup in hot-lanta. Brian and I ate at the varsity because he’s a hot-dog dude and he saw it on the food network. I’d check by UGA and around the campus, You’re bound to find something. I just remember being scared the whole time I was there!

  • Katie March 13, 2011, 1:19 pm

    If you are going to Atlanta you MUST go to Cafe Sunflower. My ex-bf (we’re both vegetarians) used to live there and we would go several times every time I visited. I think you and your husband would both really enjoy it. Their vegan desserts are AMAZING too. And be sure and do a post so I can drool over your food, since I haven’t been for years now! I even bought their cookbook last time I was there. I second the botanical garden option too, or maybe one of the parks or something outside if it’s nice. You can go shopping anywhere =) Have fun!

    • Caitlin March 13, 2011, 5:21 pm

      So many people recommended Sunflower Cafe – we must check that one out, I think!

  • Carly (Swim, Run, Om) March 13, 2011, 2:10 pm

    I know I’m late to this, but all I have to say is DITTO to The Flying Biscuit or The Vortex. I also agree with Cafe Sunflower. Obviously not a vegetarian choice, but if you like onion rings and want good ones, The Varsity! πŸ˜‰

    As for what to do, Atlantic Station! TONS of shopping, and I think Dialogue in the Dark is still going on. The High isn’t too far from there, either. The Geisha House is at Atlantic Station if you’re looking for decent sushi in a landlocked city. It’s also home to the biggest Target ever. I don’t know if it’s the biggest in the world, but it’s definitely the biggest in Georgia.

    • Katie March 13, 2011, 11:23 pm

      Mmm, the Varsity is so good too! Definitely different from Cafe Sunflower, like you said, though!

    I have a 7 day pass for Bikram, and have been eagerly awaiting trying it out, but then I read that people with osteoarthritis (which I was hastily diagnosed with in December, but I still have my doubts) should avoid hot yoga? Hmmm. I guess if I just watch it and don’t push my knee too far, I’ll be okay.

      Hmmm Can you call your doctor and ask? Bikram is HOT!

    Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I definitely recommend Cafe Sunflower for vegetarian dining in Atlanta. I have their cookbook, and I LOVE it!

    In Atlanta, try Urban Pl8 in West Midtown for vegetarian, vegan-friendly food. The nut burger, veggie plate and stir fry are my favs. R Thomas in Buckhead is quirky and consistently great, try the Hearty Breakfast Stew. If there is even a hint of sunshine, Piedmont Park is a must. I also love the High museum, the Aquarium. Try Brickstore in downtown Dectur for an outrageous beer selection. Their curry is good if you want food too.

    I think you would love souper Jenny! Menu changes everyday but it’s healthy and delicious. Cash only and line is always out the door but it’s that way for a reason. Sweetwater brewery is fun too and walking around piedmont park or shopping round Virginia-highlands. Seriously souper Jenny should not be missed. Lunch only.

    Seriously, try Surin in the highlands area of downtown Atlanta. Their Thai food CANNOT BE MISSED!! My sister lives there and we go every time I visit. The service is fast and incredibly friendly, the food is to die for. HAVE FUN!!

    I eat a grapefruit almost every night, but I never thought to broil one before! Thanks for the idea!
