Third day on the road = another 30 minutes on the stationary bike plus the regular morning workout in the hotel gym this morning.
Here’s what I ate today:
- Oatmeal with cranberries, raisins, cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup. Banana
- Vegetarian Club Sandwich, sweet potato fries, spinach salad
- Kale and Squash soup
- Beans and Pita
- Tofu Veggie Crab Cakes with smashed sweet potatoes and roasted carrots
- “Tula’s Earth Moving Dream Bar” (Dessert)
- Glass of Cabernet (2)
An improved breakfast this morning. Sometimes you just have to ask for what you want. No oatmeal on display, but they will make it on demand. Maybe I should ask if they have hemp hearts tomorrow? Or if they can make me a green smoothie? I miss my Nutri Bullet.
An outstanding dinner tonight at Tula Kitchen in Bay Shore. A funky (described to me as “crunchy”) vegetarian restaurant with both meat and vegan options. The soup was delicious. Every meal comes with a Beans and PIta appetizer that also hit the spot. The ‘Crab Cakes’ were a little loose, but tasty, served with a dairy-free tartar sauce plus smashed sweet potatoes and a generous helping of deliciously roasted carrots. I also indulged in dessert – a bar of Shortbread, Praline and Coconut with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Would have been a vegan meal if I had resisted the ice cream, but I had to try it…maybe I should have opted for the chocolate covered banana bread?
Hopefully I worked off some of that dessert with more inversions, crows and dips back in the room afterward.
A bit of a late night watching the Red Sox take the World Series from the Cardinals.
