I’ve had a very busy, but also fun-filled weekend. It started on Friday with my department’s annual summer party. They had moved all the cars out of the garage and put in tables and benches instead.
The food they served was surprisingly veggie friendly. I had asked ahead of time and learned that the side dish was potato salad. Bavarian potato salad doesn’t contain any mayo, it’s made with a light and tangy vinegar dressing.
It was probably the hottest day of the year, and I was craving something cold. So I had potato salad with a side of salad.
Thankfully I had left enough room in my stomach for dessert. Check out that epic cake table! And the tires in the background. I had contributed a vegan apple pie, which was quite tasty, but sadly very ugly. Sigh!
That furry one enjoyed the party, too. So cute!
The fun continued on Saturday, with a spontaneous trip to my hometown for the Old Town Festival. There were lots of live bands, dance shows, and a ton of food booths.
There weren’t any healthy options, so I decided to call it a ‘cheat day’. Fries for me, sausage for my husband, curry ketchup for all.
This is the freakiest thing I have seen in quite a while, a fried onion rose. They cut a giant onion into a flower shape, dip it into bear batter, and fry it until it’s crispy. It was really good! I loved the sweet onion with the crunchy, savoury coating. But was very greasy and I didn’t finish it.
Later on we walked around a little and got to watch a Boogie dance group. They very really good! We had so much fun!
I usually follow a mostly clean diet, that means minimally processed foods, lots of produce, legumes, whole grains. But sometimes I indulge a little, enjoying ‘unhealthy’ things like fries and ice cream, of course in moderation. I believe that this approach keeps me healthy, mentally and physically.
How was your weekend?
