Body Outlines and Green Candies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The past couple days have been a whirlwind of activity with Mom’s visit, birthday festivities, and dance rehearsals. We spent Sunday in Forth Worth at both the Modern Museum of Art and the Kimball Art Museum, and realized we are not cut out for culture. At least not this kind of culture. Some of the art was just downright bizarre. There was one on display that consisted of 100,000s of green wrapped candies. Yes, like the kind you find in a candy dish. They were in a room all on their own and just lumped there in a massive spread.

The Kid ran circles around them, shouting that this could not possibly be an exhibit. She was only convinced after I pointed and read the silver plaque on the wall with the art’s title and artist’s name. I was envisioning a kid shaped outline in the middle of all the candies if she lost her balance and fell. Afterwards we spent some time walking through Sundance Square and had lunch at the Flying Saucer. It’s a local brewery that I had never been to before. I ended up with a grilled chicken salad that was full of avocado, tomatoes, olives, and cucumbers. I was surprised at how tasty it was.

It’s interesting. When I first started following the Primal Blueprint, I thought it would be really difficult to eat out in restaurants. Every menu has bread, fries, rice, or potatoes as a side dish. Those are all out of my diet for the most part now. It ended up being so much easier than I expected and I haven’t had any trouble customizing something on the menu to get it just the way I want. Hold the fries and get double veggies. Tell them to not put croutons on the salad. The only place so far that I really have to make an effort to eat is Taco Bell. Even there it’s still possible, but I don’t want to order a dozen tacos with extra lettuce and no tortillas just to get enough to eat for dinner. Personal choice, but it’s still possible to do.

When you guys are eating out, it doesn’t have to be a downfall to eating healthy. You are the one paying for your meal and you should be able to get it the way you want. Look over the menu next time you’re out and see what you can find that works. If you want to get creative, ask your waiter. I bet he’s more than willing to work with you!
