Brunch

There is nothing I like better than going to brunch on a Sunday. In my college years, I was notorious for kidnapping people for brunch. Mallory and i did brunch during the week in summer, and we would gather large groups of people to eat at Oasis or Paul’s (both of which are closed now). These days, I am completely fine going to brunch at Taphouse or Conch and Bucket alone, since i always know either the staff or some of the other brunch regulars. I always get the same thing at Taphouse (all sides: bacon, eggs, veggies, english muffin, sausage gravy).

Beware salad dressings, for real

So I go to Subway and make an awesome, low carb and low calorie salad, right? And I’m all like “Woo hoo, I’m being awesome and healthy.” And although I have a balsamic vinaigrette salad spritzer at work, I’m like “yeah, ranch will be fine.”

So this single-serving of ranch dressing? 330 calories, 320 grams of fat, 5 grams of saturdated fat, 500 mg of sodium. Only 2g of carbs, but still. 

WOW. I mean, I might as well get a burger if I’m going to put ranch dressing on a salad. Lesson learned, y’all.
