Hunter-Gatherer

I’m slowly checking off restaurants on my “must visit” list, and yesterday I checked off yet another: Hunter-Gatherer in Columbia.

Looks pretty unassuming, right?  The inside is awesome, though…

I want to know this history of this building!

They brew their own beer in-house, hence the giant tanks behind the bar.

I had a wheat, and it was mighty tasty.  I just saw on their website that they offer 4oz pours for $1 – I should’ve done that instead of a whole pint!

For my lunch, I continued my current obsessive trend of fig and goat cheese-based food items.

Fig preserves, goat cheese, prosciutto, and greens on the most amazing ciabatta bread I’ve ever had.  Greek pasta salad came on the side, but I merely picked at it…it competed too much with my luscious sammich.

Holy balls. #thisiswhyimfat

Earlier in the week, I found a new Mrs. Dash I’ve never tried – Caribbean citrus – and used it and this Kona Coast tropical sweet ‘n’ spicy sauce to marinate some salmon.

I might’ve found my new favorite way to eat fish!

What’s your favorite Mrs. Dash flavor?  What other low-salt, low-calorie methods do you use to prepare meat and veggies?  I’m trying to pull up my bootstraps and reign in all the cheesy carbyness I’ve been indulging in lately.  I’m glad that beer and sandwich yesterday were so amazing, because I’m going out with a bang.  Back to low-carb basics for me to get a handle on my weight loss once again!
