Beyond Meat at Tropical Smoothie!

It is a glorious day!  Today I realized that the restaurant RIGHT next to my office, Tropical Smoothie, is carrying Beyond Meat.  I kept hearing this in the vegan blog-o-sphere and reddit, but I wasn't really sure when it would happen at mine.

I had a pretty rushed morning, because I had a job site meeting out of town, so I grabbed a few snacks out of my vegan cuts box.  The sesame bar was really good.  I wish they had included a full sized one.  It was savory and yummy.  The mint bar was good too, but it was more like a treat.

On my way back in town, I called Tropical Smoothie to see if they had Beyond Meat, and they did!  I ordered the jamaican bowl without the cheese and add beyond meat.  This was REALLY good!

It was really spicy and yummy, and it kept me full for a good amount of time.  I had a REALLY stressful afternoon, but I kept the healthy vibe going and went to Kroger to get a bunch of healthy food.  I also picked up a salad from the chef on the run to eat when I got home.

I put the groceries away, grabbed some goddess dressing (and a glass or two of wine) and settled in to catch up on Mad Men.

Bodhi was really happy I decided to stay in and hang out with her.  I was kind of hungry by 10 or so, but I decided no late night snacking was the best route.  I didn't work out today, so I was trying to keep my calories on the lower side.  Here is my break down for the day.

My goal is to stay under 100 g of carbs, so I didn't quite hit it, but I think it was a pretty good day.  I got a lot of good feedback on my calorie goals, and I think I will be monitoring and tweaking it as I go.

Does anyone else use MyFitnessPal?  Calorie counting tips?


  1. I've been using MyFitnessPal for a couple of years and love it when I diligently log my meals! I know it helps me stay on track. If I try to estimate calories in my head, I will always overeat and allow myself too many snacks and treats.

  2. You will likewise have the capacity to cleave different fixings like foods grown from the ground with electric meat grinder for the money


  3. Pretty much the only chance you have of accidentally buying a Breitling these days is via a transaction with some private seller who claim "not to know whether a Breitling watches is real or not." That usually means it is fake. So yes, caveat emptor is still a good policy, are mostly on the wrists of people who know they are wearing fakes.For me the most important issue in this entire article is a discussion of whether or not Replica Valentino Handbags are a good alternative to the real thing (minus the legal implications of course).The answer is almost universal that they are an extremely poor alternative to the real Valentino handbags thing.


I'd love to hear from you!
