Today I was out and about with meetings around town. I hate days like that not because they are tiring, but because it is so hard to find something good to eat for lunch. There still just aren’t a ton of great options even as people are trying to eat healthier and live a better lifestyle. Many places have added “healthy” options, but if you really look closely at these food choices, they are almost as bad, if not worse than the stuff that you think is bad for you. Just because something says whole grain or boasts being organic does not make it good for you.
Today, I decided to try something new in Rochester. As I was out and about, I stopped in Breathe in the village of Pittsford. It is actually a yoga and health store owned by a friend that I went to high school with and her family. When I entered, I found some great choices for lunch prepared and ready for me to grab-n-go. I had a well balanced lunch with chicken, brussel sprouts, greens and a whole grain rice. And even better, it was a perfect portion size. I was fairly unsure about some of the foods in the meal, especially the sprouts since I have not had good experiences with them prior to this. However, I decided to try them to see if my opinion had changed. I loved everything! It all had a great taste and a the bowl had a superb combination of flavors. I was very impressed.
I will definitely be stopping in Breathe often for a healthier alternative for lunches. Breathe just opened a second location in Webster as well and i’m sure it is more of the same good, wholesome stuff. Check it out!
