Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Reality.

Although it’s always hard to leave Vermont, I was happy to come home to my family in Boston. I’m pretty sure they both missed me.

Can’t you just see it on their faces? Yeah, me either. Oh well.

The rest of my weekend was really chill. We saw Life or Something Like it which I HIGHLY recommend. It did not help my baby fever whatsoever; in fact, it made it even worse. The actors had such great chemistry on film and I just love a movie that can make me both cry and laugh. I actually haven’t met a movie that hasn’t made me cry. (Cue: Cool Runnings.) I’m a baby like that.

Every time I visit Vermont, it is imperative to eat at Magnolia Bistro. I’ve written about this restaurant many times on my blog and for a damn good reason. The food is local, organic, healthy (most), and creative. The atmosphere is green, warm and comfy. I ALWAYS get the same exact thing when I go there– Huevos Con Diablo.

It’s polenta topped with black beans and two runny eggs. I left out the sour cream and added dry toast to the mix. They serve it with homemade jam and lots of different hot sauce.

Ali got the cheddar and black bean tofu scram, served with home fries and toast.

I had eaten like a fat pig the night before so we procrastinated breakfast since I was still full. We took care of some errands and went to the gym– but it was after one by the time we were actually sitting to eat. At that point I was ready to eat Ali’s head. I looked cool, calm, and collected in the picture but inside I was screaming FEED ME YOU MO’ FO’S!!!

Ali threatened to eat the table.

I kept my stomach busy by taking pictures of their incredible bathroom. They have quotes painted on the walls, inside and out of the stalls. Side note– snapping pictures in the bathroom doesn’t go over well with customers. You’d think I was trying to catch them taking a dump or something. Pahlease people.

These were some of my favorites.

At home I serve the kind of food I know the story behind.

 

So sweet, right?

 

Okay friends, I’m off!
