Shocking News at Nordstrom Cafe - 11/20 Friday

Hemp protein shake (237 calories) + 1/2 cup berries
  • Hemp protein powder
  • 1 cup hemp milk
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, & strawberries

1/2 wrap - same as yesterday

Juicy Pear

We have to drive an hour away to get to a Nordstrom, so I made sure I wasn't starving before getting to Nordstrom Cafe by eating my snack in the car.
Important to be fueled up for a day of Christmas/Early Birthday shopping (my sister got me these great new boots I love-thanks Jenn!) by starting off at Nordstrom Cafe.
I love the salmon and roasted vegetables until now.
I asked for the nutritional information, which I have never seen before because I could never find it online.

The sad news is that the herb salmon and rustic vegetables add up to a grand total of 1,190 calories!!! I mean really that is just stupid. I know that there is a lot of oil on that dish and I normally only eat half of it, but why do that to such a healthy dish that could easily be 300 calories and still taste amazing. It is so so sad.
We did the math on my sisters lunch after she ordered and it was over 1,300 calories! Knowing ahead of time can easily change your appetite.

The good news is that is forced me to try a new dish, which is now my new favorite. It is so good. I got the Shrimp, corn, & Arugula salad with no dressing for 398 calories!
Don't be deceived- the calories for the salads are listed on the far left side and do not include the dressing. The calories for the dressing are on the far right side and can equal a snack/mini meal in themselves. This salad was still really good with out the dressing. I picked the croutons off, but then my sister tried one and said it was so good the best she ever had and I needed to try one. They are made with cornmeal and were so good.

I just love my niece Allie!

1/2 wrap - same as yesterday (calories 120)

  • Large salad w/ 1 oz applegate farms chicken & balsamic dressing
  • Side of veggies & garlic chive hummus
  • Nice warm bowl of butternut squash soup.
