One of the best things about living in Stowe is there is no fast food in town. Not a single chain. There's certainly junk food- pizza and a burger shop and a hot dog place etc. But somehow they don't have the same hold on me that those scary golden arches do. One of my absolute favorite places was introduced to me by my trainer Julie. The Green Goddess Cafe is a lovely place with healthy breakfasts, delicious sandwiches, and baked goods. But my favorite item on offer is the create your own salad. You get to choose a whole slew of toppings, cheeses, etc. All on top of mesclun greens, and you can get it chopped! I can shovel in a lot of chopped salad, and to me, that's a good thing. Sometimes after the gym I get this topped with a poached egg or two, but today I got:
and candied walnuts.
All topped with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette - made with Vermont maple syrup!
It is so YUM! And beautiful, here's a pic!
I used myfitnesspal to try to guess the calories, and including the dressing I had it coming out to about 280 calories for the whole thing, but of course, I never can finish!
