DC Deliciousness- Day 3

Today was our last day in DC and I was definitely sad to leave. I absolutely loved the city and could really see myself living there when I graduate. There is just so much to do and see, and I just love the atmosphere! 

I woke up this morning still pretty stuffed from my midnight cake-eating extravaganza from the night before so I definitely didn’t need a pre-workout snack. I hit the gym, came back, showered, and packed up to leave : (


We took the easy way out and just had breakfast at the hotel this morning. I started with a big bowl of fresh fruit (yummmm!) 

And ordered an egg white omelet with “all the veggies you have.” It was really good and way filling. We ate breakfast around 9:30 and weren’t able to sit down for lunch until 3:30! Now, I was definitely hungry by the time we could eat but I wasn’t starving all morning by any means. I guess we were just too busy having fun to realize how late it got!


When we finally had time to eat we needed to find somewhere, and fast! Luckily I spotted a Corner Bakery Cafe right on the corner so we went in. I loved it! I wish we had one of these around me, I could easily see it becoming a staple in my diet.

I ordered the Harvest Salad with roasted chicken, crisp green apples, toasted walnut and currants tossed with mixed greens, balsamic vinaigrette and harvest crisps. This was so good. I loved the combinations of flavors and textures. The salty, sweet, and tart, the crispy, crunchy, and chewy. It was so good. The crips were amazing too. They were similar in texture to Melba Toast but really, really flavorful. Maybe it’s because I was really hungry when I ate this (which always makes things taste better!) but I would say it was one of the best salads I’ve had in quite a while!


Due to our late lunch we didn’t have to stop for dinner on the way home. I really wasn’t hungry for a meal so I just popped up some kettle corn and grabbed a nectarine. Also, while blogging I’ve snacked on some yogurt and cereal but couldn’t take a picture because my camera was busy uploading! 


So in conclusion: DC has great food : )

Now I am exhausted after a busy but very fun weekend. I have some serious blog-reading to catch up on but that might have to wait until tomorrow, I just can’t wait to collapse in my bed!
