Rejuiceanation

Friday I treated myself to a lunch out in Hoboken. I usually wouldn’t do this. Especially because I’m currently unemployed, but I had a Living Social deal so it was kind of free?

The restaurant’s name isĀ Rejuiceanation. Their about us section on their website says “Rejuiceanation makes it a priority to promote nutrition and its vital role in helping people uphold healthy and active lifestyles.”

When I got to the restaurant I was overwhelmed by all of the choices on their build a salad menu… I had to be choosey though because everything was quite pricey. $1.75 for avocado? $1.75 for artichokes? $1.00 for asparagus? $2.25 for grilled chicken? $1.00 for sprouts? Add that to my $2.00 lettuce bed and we were looking at a $10 (HALF) salad.

The salad was small but good… It had a lot of avocado (not complaining) but I could’ve made the same thing for A LOT cheaper.

I also ordered one of their fresh squeezed juices. Red Velvet – Apple, Beets & Carrots

That was another $5. My total was around 16 or 17 dollars for the salad and juice. Whole Foods might even be cheaper than that!?

I’ll go there again, but only because I have enough left on my gift card for one more salad and juice. After that I don’t think I’ll be visiting there unless I’m feeling REALLY lazy. Which probably means in 2 weeks.

Adam got home early from work (weeeee) and we wanted to see Horrible Bosses so I made a quick Taco dinner.

Ground Chicken, Vegetarian Refried Beans, Romaine Lettuce, Salsa, Mexican Cheese, Greek Yogurt (used as Sour cream)

I made a taco salad with all the fixins and made us each half of a cheese quesadilla on a flat out.

We took public transportation to the movie (eh, i need to get used to this).

But the view ended up not being so bad.

Even if the people were a little creepy šŸ™‚

Horrible bosses in our opinion was hilarious. It’s definitely a crude type of comedy but the laughs were consistent and I’m always down for a night of giggling. We snacked on a small popcorn which made my belly sad butĀ there’sĀ something about movieĀ theaterĀ popcorn that tastes SO GOOD!

I think were heading out to explore NYC. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

QUESTIONS: Have you seen horrible bosses? What is your favorite type of movie? I like a good romantic comedy (typical girl)

His & Hers

After breakfast I chose to be responsible and run my errands :/ But that’s OK – I’ll see you today Mr. sunshine!

I went to my favorite store Tar-Jay… I spent way too much time there. But I didn’t spend too much money for once. Alyssa – 1. Tar-Jay – 400. Hey, you gotta start somewhere.

Lunch was quick because I was starvingggg. I found these cute little pitas at Target today for 40 calories each! But when i say little, i mean little.

I stuffed it with some romaine lettuce and spicy soybeans from Trader Joe’s. I also made a side salad with the romaine lettuce, cucumbers and tomatoes and added more soybeans on top since the pita was so tiny.

For dinner I made Adam and I a very similar yet different dish. Both included chicken, cheese and pesto. The difference was that mine had roasted red peppers and Adam’s had ham and were lightly breaded. Our cheese’s were also different but all in all very similar.
