Date Night and a Ten Mile Run

This weekend was another pretty low key weekend, which as I said on Friday was just what I was hoping for after a long week.

After work on Friday, I met up with my friend Alison for an early dinner at Sweetgreen, my all time favorite salad place in the DC area.  Alison is one of my best friends from college who also happens to live in the area.

Highlights From A Low Key Weekend

I’ve been an avid blog reader for a long time before finally starting this blog. My favorite blogs have always been the personal blogs, as I tend to feel the most connection with those bloggers.

Potatoes often get a bad rap, but potatoes (with skin on) are high in potassium and fiber, as well as vitamin C and vitamin B6. We definitely plan on making these bowls again. Next time I’ll probably throw in another bell pepper or add chopped tomatoes to boost the non-starchy veggie content.
