A word on dining out while attempting to whittle the waist. Last night I was lucky enough to attend a private Cocktail Reception and viewing of the movie Roadie at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. The film has been getting rave reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival and I was very excited to see the movie and get a chance to mingle with the actors. I knew there were going to be passed appetizers so I was little concerned what healthy options there would be for me to choose from.
Here is what I consumed:
1. 2 small glasses of white wine
2. 2 pieces of grilled chicken (one had some sort of peanut sauce on it, the other I didn’t dip)
3. One piece of raw salmon with caviar (um, hello looovverrrr)
4. One truffle risotto ball
5. One crab cake ball
I made a valiant effort to have bits of this and that, but keep it under control.
Here’s what I passed on:
1. Lobster rolls
3. Fried asparagus.
I just ate turkey breast with lettuce and tomato on whole grain bread. I’m making progress.
Oh and Jill Hennessy (of Law & Order fame) starred in the movie and was stunning in person! When JV and I saw her eat a Risotto ball we decided they must be worth it :)
