Met up with my friend, Valerie, to get a healthy dinner in Atlanta at R. Thomas’ Grill. It is a funky place catering to vegetarians and the more health conscious. We ordered some flax crackers and guacamole for an appetizer. Sorry for all the camera pictures in advance…
These “crackers” were completely made from flax seeds. No flour or anything. They had good flavor–some kind of chipotle/garlic/spice flavor. Then, ordered some fish tacos:
Packed with veggies, and some salmon. This place even had stevia on the table! First time I have seen this. Our favorite part was talking to the birds that live at this restaurant. No joke–there are birds just hanging out outside that you can say “hello” and “goodbye” to.
Went to my parent’s house the next day to have some fresh crab and grouper that Psycho Holiday Baker brought back from her trip to the beach.
OK, this is not health food, but these were some of the best crab cakes I have had. Probably due to the quality of the crab meat. It was a very simple recipe (breadcrumbs, spices, 1 egg, a little mayo, lemon). And they were cooked in olive oil. So, not too bad (for you), but tasty!
I was in charge of making a salad:
My Mom has this cute turtle bowl. So funny, and appropriate for the summer months!
