evolution fresh breakfast

 

After a recent weekend workout on a sunny Sunday afternoon my friends and I ventured to a new spot for a post-workout meal.

Obviously feelin’ the healthy vibes flow through us, we decided to checkout Evolution Fresh on Fillmore Street in San Francisco.

I can only comment on what I ate (mostly because I’m lactose intolerant and couldn’t try anybody else’s meal). crying emoji

It was super good. The portion sizing might seem small but it was actually perfect. Mostly because we had just worked out; and second, there’s no reason to stuff myself and go into a food-coma.

After stealing some quick facts from their website, here’s a quick breakdown of what I ordered.

I got the Southwest Scramble, which is a hot breakfast dish. It has eggs, quinoa, black beans, roasted red peppers, baby spinach, mild harissa sauce, and feta (which I obviously didn’t get).

With everything in it, including the cheese I missed out on, my breakfast dish was only 230 calories. Not bad! The Evolution Fresh website lists Calories, Fats, Proteins, Fiber, Sodium, and Carbs for many of their options, which is a helpful nutritional analysis.

It was a light meal and though I didn’t feel stuffed, I was definitely satisfied. The Evolution Fresh breakfast is a great option and I recommend the Southwest Scramble highly.

Look for healthy options when you go out.

And remember:

Product Review: Ladera Granola

Did you see the awesome story from the Make-A-Wish Foundation from last Friday, with Batkid saving San Francisco? If not, check this out: KA-POW!

I was lucky enough to be a part of this day, and even though I was just a casual observer (and flagrant chanter of “Batkid!”), it was truly amazing to be a part of.

While I was waiting outside I overheard a guy giving out a free sample of a food product.

Free. Sample. Ummmmm, yes please.

And it was a healthy snack= extra bonus.

What I received was granola from a company called Ladera. I instantly tore open the bag and shared it with my closest neighbors (who I instantly became friends with).

What I tasted was pure gold. As the Almond Pecan granola rolled around my mouth I read the bag and was even more delighted at my days’ luck. “All natural whole grains; No preservatives; No cholesterol”.

Clean. Healthy. Delicious. Almonds. Pecans.
I don’t know how much more happiness I could get out of a 12 oz bag of granola.

I highly recommend this snack/yogurt-topper. This was my first time trying anything from Ladera but trust me, I will be back to try more of their products.

Let me know if you try it out and tell me what you think!

Eat well. And remember:
