Where Can You Eat?

Dinner out with friends often starts with “Well, where can you eat?” and the truth is, I can pretty much eat anywhere. Most places are pretty accommodating, and let’s face it, everyone has salads these days. As boring as it can be to eat salads, I always have SOME option. (Ok, so I had to get pretty creative at the Cheesecake factory, but I made it work!)

That said, it’s always really fun when the restaurant already HAS plenty of Vegan options, such as 821Cafe, here in Richmond. My friend Stephen and I went here for dinner, and it was delicious!

I decided to order the vegan burger, which came topped with spicy mustard, sprouts, and avocado. YUM!

It came with a side of vegan chili, and it made for quite a delicious meal. Honestly, the burger itself was just ok, but the sprouts, avocado and mustard took it to the next level and made it quite splendid! Sorry for the not-so-great picture, it was pretty dim in there!

For all of you with special diets (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, allergies) do you find most restaurants accommodating? Do you have favorite restaurants that cater to your food-lifestyle?

As for my recent workouts, I’ve been getting into P90X again. However, I decided it’s much better if I put the tv on mute, and blast my favorite workout songs! Now that I’ve done all the DVDs before, I don’t really need to hear Tony’s motivational voice 😉 and music just gets me jumping! That seems to make the workout go faster.

Do you guys like using workout DVDs? Or do you prefer to do your own thing? Normally I like doing my own thing, but I’ve been lacking motivation lately, and following the DVD makes me work out harder.

Hope you all had a good weekend!
