My husband and I went to a state fair last weekend and I was impressed to find a salad amongst the fried everything being offered. It was a very good greek salad with light cheese and dressing.
I’d like to impress you and tell you that I ate this healthy all day, but I enjoyed a sandwich and two treats during the day before heading home, one shared with hubby and one small blizzard all to myself. (They don’t have DQ here in Oklahoma, so I really wanted one.)
I can say that the smell of fried stuff wasn’t any more appealing than this yummy greek salad on that warm, sunny day. So, kudos to the people of greek food at the fair!!!
Oh, and I also overheard this comment while waiting in line later, “Apples? Who comes to the fair to buy an apple?” The young lady had a “DUH!!” attitude, and I wanted to tell her that I was impressed they were offering something healthy for those that don’t care to have a “treat” just because they are at the fair. Of course, since we were ordering philly cheese steaks and I’m overweight, I decided it was best to leave that comment alone. I only ate healthy for one of my two meals at the fair, so I obviously didn’t completely fall into the “buying an apple” group. LOL 🙂
Extra little shot of hubby and me at fair and getting ready to go into the game, inside the fair. This is my little boost for University of Oklahoma — GO OU!!! And yes, we beat Texas this year and drove home in an aura of proud contentedness. Of course, the blizzard added to the content feelings for me, but I’m probably not supposed to say things like that on my weight loss blog am I? oh well… It’s true. [giggle]
Good for you for choosing a healthy item, and even better for the fair for offering one!
A fellow hottie AND a SOONER! Sweet Lord I'm in love! Good job on finding one healthy food at the fair. That ain't easy. Check out my blog and my new OU lab coat! Boomer!
That salad does look good! Sorry I can't cheer for the OU win, since I'm a gal from Texas, but I'll be a good sport and at least say congrats. 🙂 Oh, and I remember my husband and I used to go to the fair before we had kids, just so we could eat everything in sight! I haven't tested my willpower lately at a fair. Fried food on a stick – hard to resist!
