Inspired salad


It's nice to be back in Greenville, SC after our 9 day, Boulder train-cation and it's even better to have a few days of low volume/low intensity training to recover from all that training stress. 

We did a lot of eating out while we were in Boulder. So you know what that means, right?

Diet? 
Not us!

Cleanse/Fast?
Never!

Go low carb?
Absolutely not. We love bread!

Be inspired?YEP!!!

In Boulder, there was no shortage of restaurants that offered a variety of vegetarian options for me but also kept us well-fueled with all of our training. 

With all that eating out, there were many opportunities to be inspired. I firmly believe that we should always feel great when we eat - no matter where we eat or what we eat. It is your choice as to what you choose to put inside your body that you may as well choose food that makes you yum (yumming out loud is totally acceptable). 

For our last dinner in Boulder, we went to Pizzeria Locale with our friend/athlete Trent (his wife Kristen was traveling for work). 

We all enjoyed pizza (of course) but started with a salad. 
I ordered the Antica Arugula salad with parmigiano reggiano and balsamic and Karel ordered the Vesuvius heirloom tomato salad with basil, mozzarella di bufala.  

Inspired by Karel's salad, I made a delicious arugula salad with mozzarella and tomato to start our dinner this evening. 

Next time you go out to eat, be sure to enjoy your meal outside of the home.....

and always leave the restaurant inspired to re-create the meal at home.
