But when I do, it’s in a delicious Korean Steak wrap like this one!
I hardly ever eat steak anymore, and when I do it’s almost always at a nice steak house. Remember Bern’s? That’s probably the only steak I’ve ordered for myself while dining out in at least a year. If not two.
I’m just not a huge fan of red meat, but I guess that works out because lighter proteins like chicken and seafood is a lot better for you.
But before we get off subject here, can I go back to lunch for a second? I got all of the tastiness you see below at the bargain price of $5 in our arena’s cafe.
Just in case you’re curious as to why I became instantly obsessed with this spinach wrap, here’s what’s inside:
• Korean steak (but I’m sure any kind of thinly sliced steak would do)
• Asian dressing – not sure what that is, but I’m hoping there’s a less fatty substitute out there.
I fully plan on attempting to recreate a version of it someday, so I figured maybe some of you would like to know too!
It also came with a side salad, which I originally thought I didn’t need.
Joke’s on them though, because I ended up saving half of the wrap for later on. #doubledipping
I swear this isn’t a plug to come eat at The Palace arena, but I just have to share a fantastic and well-priced healthy meal when I see one.
As I mentioned this morning, my Wednesday started off on a fun note!
Much like a lot of my days this summer, I spent a good chunk of my day chasing this wacko around.
I’m sure you’ve seen me mention HOOPER before, and I have a feeling you’ll see his fury face pop up throughout the entirety of the summer. Sorry if you’re getting bored of the horse photos, but I feel like I can’t not include them.
I mean… it’s not every day you get to see an over-excited horse mascot dancing, dunking, and causing havoc around the city.
Following him around gives me access to a lifetime supply of silly string as well as a ton of free Pistons swag, so I can’t really complain. And trust me when I say keeping him out of trouble and under control IS work!
So there you have it… just another day in the life, ya’ll.
Since I was already at the arena today, I met Scott at work for lunch and am currently hijacking his computer while he’s in a meeting to chat with you all. (I do – in fact – moonlight as a ninja, just in case you were wondering.)
I feel like these summer days just keep going by faster and faster! Probably like most of you, I added a large amount of projects to my summer to-do list that includes a lot of cleaning and organizing in between the every day events and (what I wish was every day) travels.
We are leaving next week for a ten-day trip to Florida, and I have so much I would ideally like to finish before then. And then there’s that whole studying concept I’m way behind on. Sheesh. I just need to go…
Off to the post office and then to get onto all the nonsense I call to-do’s. See you back here in the morning!
Question of the Afternoon
• Are you a steak person? Or fan of meat in general?
If you are new or only take a glance at my blog, you might think I was a vegetarian. I rarely eat meat (I just don’t seem to crave it!) and when I do it’s almost always in a lighter version like turkey, chicken, seafood, or even veggie substitute.
I still try to keep up my protein intake by including a lot of beans, nuts and eggs into my diet and love, love, love turkey, black bean, veggie, and quinoa burgers. Also, protein bars and smoothies are lifesavers!

I’m not really a meat person to be honesty, but I do eat it when it is mixed into other things like salad or rice. I can bring myself to eat a piece of steak though, I just don’t enjoy the flavor of it.
I used to dip in into ketchup when I was little! I’m such a weirdo!

That wrap looks so good!

I love meat, but I don’t buy red meat as often because it’s usually more expensive. Steak is kind of like a treat I guess.
I’m not a huge steak, or red meat in general, person. I do LOVE my chicken and turkey though. That wrap looks fab!

I am not a meat fan usually but lately I have been craving burgers. I am much more of a fish, eggs, beans person but occasionally I get meat cravings and just go with it.
I’m definitely NOT a steak person at all. I went veggie for a couple of years and haven’t had read meat in over 5 years UNTIL this year and let me just tell you I felt horrible haha! My sister on the other hand LOVES steak. Almost every single we go out she will always get a filet mignon…such a diva lol 🙂
Filet is usually the only way I’ll eat it too! Ha. But it’s not very often. 😉

Summer trips are the best! I hope you have so much fun in Florida!
Thank you! We’ll be working a camp the entire time but it will still be great to get down there!
