happy post 4th of july, yall! how did you celebrate? DO TELL! we hit the pool for the first time all summer and had so.much.fun. this past weekend! post is coming, you already know. it's monday though! mine started off with a big cup of hot 1/2 caff and sweaty knees.
i took a TCX (total conditioning extreme) class at Lifetime (yep, same one i teach) and i felt amaaaaaazing from that point on. the boys and i had a very special lunch date planned later so i had to take care of bidness early. did you see my Periscope from this morning!? if you haven't, download the app and add us! if you watched, THANK YA, and you already know where we headed today:
finally! fresh, fast-food designed for people on the go. it's right up my alley which is why i'm so excited to share this place with you! and the lowercase lettering is a plus ;) . Kristina DeLaTorre owns both the Galleria and Midtown locations and joined my friend Tinnell and i for lunch today. the decor though... absolutely adorbs. see?
contemoporary, bright, and i love this play on the periodic table of elements using veggies and other healthy goodies.
some day, i'm going to do this to my kitchen wall at home.
kid friendly options are always a plus and they've got some good ones. we told Rilee & Chiso to smile and Chiso (i mean, Spiderman) whipped out his web slinger.
i stood behind the glass counter ogling the menu which was full of salads & wraps, bowls, burritos, soups, juices, smoothies, breakfast, and low fat, probiotic frozen yogurt. holy variety.
on the way to the register there was also a section for mixed nuts and other conventional bulk items (trail mix, granola, wasabi peas, chocolate covered almonds) and a variety of lighter chip options. as a health conscious mom, i'd definitely feel better about giving my boys the pop chips instead of a side of greasy, salty french fries.
Kristina says the Pangoa Bowl is extremely popular and i was ready to see why.
best pic of the bunch! also, the kids were kinda loud during my Periscope so i apologize in advance, haha. it briefly shows what everbody else was eating too.
i ordered Chiso a cheese quesadilla and one bite into it he had a melt down. one word: tomatoes. :(
so we ordered another and he killed it.
so here it is! my Pangoa bowl: brown rice, avocado, black beans, aged cheddar, corn, grape, tomatoes, cilantro, lime wedge, and a spicy bbq sauce on top! SO DANG GOOD all mixed together! i added chicken, but you can choose from steak, tofu, falafel, or gourmet tuna for your protein. you can also do a kale or quiona base instead of rice. LOVE!
because it matters, all nutritional stats are listed online for ya.
i also had a Mighty Detox Juice i neglected to take a pic of before i gulped it down. it had a refreshing blend of pineapple, ginger, apple, celery and cucumber. then we headed over to the park a block away so the kids could get really tired play for a bit. so much personality in this girl!! we enjoyed hanging with these ladies today!
so, i've signed on to do one of freshii's detox challenges later this week (blog post coming) so look out for that. also, the winner of that Dri Sweat Flex headband from last week iiiiis: Peaches Cooper!
try freshii for yourself and let me know what you think and what you ordered!
