My New Obsession

Right now salads are my best friend. Not because I'm on a greens-only wedding diet (less than 3 months now, y'all), but because I can't get enough of the symphony of textures and flavors. I've rediscovered Dean & Deluca this week and spent a solo lunch there this morning relishing my new favorite - field greens, chicken, chickpeas, goat cheese, pine nuts, roasted red peppers, dried cranberries and avocado - and people watching while the rain drizzled outside. I caught myself jealously watching a lady in her 80s chug a glass of wine before excusing myself to head into work. Odd to me how much I enjoyed a few minutes of decompression eating alone and savoring a salad. A pointless post, really, but I want to remember how utterly relaxed I felt in that moment and remind myself that sometimes a few deep breaths and leafy greens are all it takes.

I experienced the exact same scene last week! Friday I walked down to lunch at a coffee shop, ate solo, and watched the snow fall! It was such a relaxing 60 minutes. Hopefully you can find more of that amidst the busyness of wedding planning! :)

I am drooooooooling over this salad- aren't salads as meals just divine?!
