Last October, I realized that I may be hitting the age where I have to be more thoughtful about my eating habits. My pants were getting tighter by the day and the scale showed me a number that was the highest I had ever seen. That was my wake up call. I certainly didn't want to have to buy new pants that actually fit correctly. Immediately I started to eat less carbs and more veggies. Then in January, my friend Amy Crowson of Lovebugfitness was having a free clean eating challenge. It was a great way to take my clean eating to another level and have the support of other people on the same journey - check our her 10 day challenge if you are looking to kick off the healthy lifestyle that you deserve.
While it is easy to eat well at home, I have always found it to be more diffidult when eating out. Even in NYC where there are so many restaurants, if you want a healthy option, then you are often limited to uninspired salads from a deli and don't make the mistake of putting salad dressing on a McDonald's salad which makes it worse than a double Big Mac. No joke.
This led me to the discovery of Eatsa. When you walk by, you are immediately wondering what the place actually is. There are no cashiers and no visible employees. It is something I would expect from a modern Japanese quick serve even though I have never been to Japan. I was happy to discover that it is a vegetarian fast casual eatery.
