My weekend was filled with great food, awesome friends, and my wonderful family! On Friday, my friends and I went to a local restaurant called Lovin’ Spoonfuls for dinner. This is, hands down, my favorite restaurant in Tucson! It’s absolutely delicious and 100% vegan. Tuscon visitors should not leave the city until they have been to Lovin’ Spoonfuls (even meat eaters). In fact, it’s so good that I went again today with my family for lunch. I have never walked out of this restaurant feeling unsatisfied!
On Friday, I got the Santa Fe plate, which consisted of baked polenta, tomato and basil relish/sauce, and black beans. I washed all of that down with a soy milkshake called the Mexican Delight (a combination of chocolate and coffee). YUMMY! I am definitely going to try to recreate that dish and shake at home.
Today, I got my usual, the club sandwich with China Black Tea. This is probably one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. It’s made with soy ham and turkey, vegan mayo, tomatoes, lettuce, and oat grain bread. DELISH!
It’s a good thing that Lovin Spoonfuls is a healthy place because dinner last night was definitely no where near healthy. My family and I went to Mi Nidito. Mi Nidito is a well-known Mexican restaurant in Tucson that’s been around since the 50’s. It serves real Sonoran food, which equals delicious, cheesy goodness! I ended up ordering a bean enchilada with a side of rice. We also ordered the guacamole to share. Everything tasted so fresh compared to other Mexican restaurants. Mi Nidito’s tortillas, guac, beans, and rice are the BEST! Another Tucson gem worth trying!
Since balance is my new favorite word, I plan on balancing out all of the eating I did this weekend by doing some yoga this evening. I’ve been wanting to get Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown DVD for awhile now and finally made my way to Target to buy it. I LOVE her workouts and plan on blogging about all 4 of the DVDs I own soon!
Wish me luck!
