Mind: reading a new book on the train
I took a personal day today because I'm moving into a new apartment. After the mayhem of carrying suitcases and scheduling my movers, I needed a majorly healthy lunch, before hopping on a 4-hour train to see my parents. Enter this delightful chopped salad, from 44 & X, a trendy, bright, and healthy restaurant only a 10 minute walk from my apartment. The texture was perfect, and I loved the light pesto dressing around the side. It was that perfect "won't leave me feeling blah" meal before a long train ride.
