Eating and drinking locally
For dinner tonight, I got to meet an old friend and some of our other friends at Ramsi’s Cafe on the World, one of the BEST places to eat in Louisville.
I almost got the sloppy falafel again but I decided to branch out and try something new since they have so many vegan options there.
This time I got the roasted vegetable panini.
This sandwich ROCKED! It contained portobello mushrooms, roasted red peppers, squashes and red onions, topped with vegan basil mayonnaise and vegan cheese served on homemade Cuban bread.
The only thing I think I would change about it is leave off the (vegan) cheese. Even though it was vegan, I just don’t really like eating cheese if I don’t have to. I loved the vegan mayo though!
The avocado spread that came with it was delicious too. Oh yeah and those potatoes. Great meal, I was very pleased 🙂
After dinner, we walked next door to Heine Brothers, one of our local coffee shops. I got their pumpkin pie latte with soymilk, which I was happy to discover is vegan (the syrup at Starbucks contains dairy!) after I inquired about it on their website earlier this week.
This was so tasty! I think I liked it better than Starbucks (gasp). Plus I think I just love the fact that both places I went tonight were local.
OH! I almost forgot to mention the totally awesome 4 mile run I had today. Yeah. The weather was perfect and I felt great!
The one thing I noticed I am struggling with though is breathing. If I could keep it steady and regular, I wouldn’t have as hard of a time. It comes and goes but right now I feel like I’m gasping for air a lot.
If you are a runner (or aspiring runner), what is your biggest struggle? Body aches, fatigue, breathing, or something else?
