A few weeks back whilst in Ogden, we came across a restaurant called Brixton’s Baked Potato. I’d never heard of it before, a restaurant devoted entirely to baked taters!? Count me in! I was born in Idaho after all… potato country!
Basically they took a baked potato, opened the sucker up, mashed it down with a potato masher and then put any toppings you wanted on top. What a glorious idea, Vern! I thoroughly enjoyed my broccoli/cheese mixture.
The word restaurant contains the word rant… pretty much opening it up for a Whitney rant session to the nth degree! Why can’t there be more restaurants with healthy options? When is someone going to open up a sit-down restaurant where the menu contains the nutrition facts of each food item? I have been consciously scaling back on my going-out-to-eat times over the last few months. I allow myself once a week on Saturday to go out to eat. The rest I cook from home. That’s a drastic reduction from the Whitney of 3 years ago when it would be restaurants twice a day most days. I don’t miss going out to eat as much as I did in the past, but I do wish I could actually go to a restaurant that offered a whole menu filled with healthy stuff… lower calories, lower sodium, lower fat… and the nutrition facts printed right on the menu. How novel would that be… and no Subway does not count. I do not consider that a restaurant. Maybe they do have places like I’m describing in bigger cities… I know I’ve never come across one in Podunk, Utah. If you build it… we will come!!
Question of the Day: I find it fun to dream up restaurant ideas. What kind of restaurant would you like to see open up?
