Ok, first things first - I have been extremely lazy about blogging this semester, for which I apologize!
Anyway, I have been trying to stay a little healthy this semester, going to the gym in the morning and also eating better. The latter is pretty hard for two reasons: First, I love to eat out a lot, and there aren’t a lot of healthy options in that category. Second, cooking is time consuming, and sometimes, I need meals to be convenient. The convenient, economical, healthy meals I have come up with so far are: whole grain cereal in the mornings, yummy odwalla granola bars for a pick-me-up between classes, and yogurt with granola from Prufrocks. And of course, the leftovers of my son’s meals!
But then the other day, I found a place that has now become my single most convenient, favorite lunch pick-up places ever. It’s on the drag – the NW side of Martin Luther King and Guadalupe, called “Bite Mi”, next to the Vietnamese cafes in the area. Great tasting sandwiches, for a great price ($3.50 for almost a footlong). Plus, they are healthy – they have vegetables and no mayo/dressings. If those are not enough reasons to try one, here is another: the place is run by an entreprenial alum, who built it up from scratch by himself. I would definitely recommend the Pork Special sandwich, for $3.75. So try one if you get the chance!
