Blue Lemon and a Date with Sis

Last night sis and I went on a date. It was a good time. I love when I get to hang out with her!! We always have so much fun. We headed up to SLC for some shopping, delicious dinner and a night at the theater. All things that we do quite well.
 
I have heard people talk about how delicious Blue Lemon was, and man were they right. Blue Lemon is a local Utah restaurant that has two locations; one in Highland and one in Downtown Salt Lake City. I was excited to try this delicious cuisine because they focus on pure clean food and they support local farmers. How cool is that? I love having options of healthy places to eat.
 We started with some hummus, pita and veggies. Their hummus was delicious.
 My sister and I both ordered the Raspberry Chicken Salad. It was grilled chicken, candied pecans, feta cheese, sweet and sour red onions, endive, raspberries, orange sections, house greens tossed with raspberry vinaigrette. It was so fresh and delicious.
For some reason they thought we ordered the butternut squash soup as well, and even though we didn't they left it at our table to try. It tasted like Christmas in a bowl. SO good.
Everything was so fresh and flavorful. I was loving every second of it. The food was healthy and the portion sizes were normal. Hard things to come by when you are out to eat. If you live in Utah, you MUST try it. I will definitely be back!

After dinner it was off to the Capitol Theater to see Mama Mia. It was my 4th time seeing it, and I think it was my favorite. I love all of the music and you can't help but dance! It's always so fun to head up to the Capitol Theater! The Mama Mia cast was so energetic it was amazing. They really were jumping all over the stage the whole time. In the back of my head I was wondering...I wonder how many calories they burn in one show. I think that is proof that I'm weird...
 Thanks for a great time Linds!
What is your favorite, "healthy," place to eat? I love Blue Lemon, Station 22, Pizza Factory (for the salad bar,) Jason's Deli...this list is getting long... Do you like musicals? My favorites are Les Mis and Wicked. Both absolutely amazing.

Also, thank you for all of your amazing, awesome, and inspiring responses to my last post about my own fitness journey. You guys are absolutely incredible!
