WIAW #24

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on September 25, 2012

Hello, Foodie Friends. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from last Monday. I hope you enjoy my day. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

 9/5/12 Goals:

My three fall goals are: 1) Return to Sunday marketing and cooking for the week. 2) Continue with my workout plan, trying to improve each week. 3) Stay organized and ahead of the game with all school work.

9/12/12 Goals:

My new fall goals are: 1) Eat two pieces of fruit each day. 2) Study at least 1 hour Monday thur Friday. 3) Track water intake.

Above are the goals I created for the month. So far so good, my goals are helping stay organized through the week. The only goal I am having trouble sticking to is my fruit goal, some days are better than others. 🙂

 This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with a quick breakfast of coffee and a chocolate protein shake for the road.


 AM Snack (9:00am)

String cheese.

Lunch (11:30am)

My favorite salad at Green2Go, the roasted chicken salad.

 PM Snacks (2:00pm)

Walnuts and roasted asparagus.


 Dinner (5:30pm)

A seared ahi salad from California Fish Grill. It was tasty but a little to salty for me.

Dessert (7:00pm)

I shared a “Marvelous Milk Chocolate” cupcake with my husband. We stopped by Casey’s Cupcakes in Laguna Beach and we had a hard time choosing because they were all so beautiful. And it was as good as it looks. 🙂


Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!

Featured Restaurant – Green2Go

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on August 31, 2012


2435-A E. Imperial Highway

Brea, CA 92821

Phone # (714) 482-2130

Website: http://livegreen2go.com/

Hours: 11am to 9pm Everyday

Green2Go is a new farm to table café in Brea featuring local and organic ingredients. This café offers comfort food made healthy in a fresh and clean atmosphere. I like restaurants that are individual owned and that are trying to offer something different and this restaurant does just that.

Linda, Anita, and Jouila 


The very friendly and helpful staff at the counter take the orders. Green2Go offers indoor seating and outdoor seating in a courtyard with a fountain.

The menu is well-rounded, featuring salads, sandwiches, panini, burgers, rice bowls, tacos and desserts.

 Roasted Jidori Chicken Salad

My favorite dish is the Roasted Jidori Chicken Salad because it tastes fresh and homemade. This salad has organic granny smith apples, roasted sesame seeds, slaw, radish, lemon juice, Dijon, mayo and avocado. I love that all the salads are available in two sizes: healthy and full size.

 Seared Ahi Salad

Another favorite is the Seared Ahi Salad that features rare ahi, Asian slaw, greens, and organic granny smith apples with vinaigrette.

Ahi Poke Salad 

Angus Beef Burger with Lettuce Wrap 

In addition, I have enjoyed the Angus beef and turkey burgers both were juicy and flavorful. I like that they offer the choice of a whole-wheat bun or a lettuce wrap.


I can’t leave Green2Go without some dessert. I like their old-fashioned banana bread that is available by the slice or loaf. Also, I have sampled several different cookies and they have all been good.

If you are looking for a wholesome, quality meal, give Green2Go a try. I think you will be glad you did. Thank you to Anita and Joulia and their friendly staff.
