Thank goodness my Grammy can make a decision on where to eat, bc when faced with multiple options, I crumble. I was contemplating Chipotle, Clover Foods Labs, or Yeh! Frozen Yogurt, all in the same plaza. She wanted to go to B.Good though, so I happily followed along. B.Good is a fast casual restaurant that, at first glance, seems to focus on burgers. Once we got inside, I noticed they proudly display their love for locally sourced ingredients for their array of fresh menu options. In addition to burgers and sandwiches, they have salads and quinoa bowls. I chose the Avocado & Lime Quinoa bowl full of kale, sautéed veggies, avocado, black beans, corn, grape tomato, queso fresco, lime, cilantro, and chipotle sauce.

Honestly, I was impressed. Like they claimed, the food was super fresh and full of flavor, and the portions were generous. I’m a new fan! Next time I’m going back for the White Bean & Rosemary bowl. It has beets!

Healthy eats are best balanced with treats, which is essentially why I named my blog Hungry Meets Healthy. Keep your eyes and stomach open for the healthy foods, so when the craving for something sweet hits, you’ll feel okay indulging. One day last week I stopped at Haute Coffee in Concord for an afternoon pick-me-up. A cold brew coffee and a chocolate & caramel thumb print cookies. Both were delicious!

I want to wear this Old Navy halter neck maxi all the time. It’s so comfortable and fits well. I don’t like wearing maxis that have a really heavy fabric because I feel like I’m dragging in it. This one is made of a light, soft material. Similar maxis here and here.

I took this shot while standing on the corner of State St. and Atlantic Ave after leaving City Landing. The picture is super edited, yes, but I just love the architecture. I wonder if I’ll love this city as much when it’s covered in blankets of snow…

On a different evening, I snapped this picture of the Leonard P. Zakim bridge. Charleston friends, don’t slap me, but I think this one is just as pretty as the Ravenel. icon smile Insta Lately

Trader Joe’s never ceases to impress me. They’re always up to date on current food trends. Their newest health-conscious item: cold-pressed juices! I didn’t buy any this visit, but will probably pick a bottle up soon. Has anyone tried these yet?

    Ooh def want the green juice from TJ’s – our juicer is officially shot and $150 hasn’t grown on a tree yet!

  • Sheanna Caban

    I bet you’ll love the city even more in the first snowfall….BUT, by mid March you might want to visit Charleston again. That lovely white snow turns to grey soul-sucking sludge that has you begging for Summer by that time.

  • Jessi Otey

    ah! How come I am just now finding your blog?? <– newest follower!!

  • http://yogabarrechs.blogspot.com/ Melissa Vause

    I do like that bridge! And love your Insta account…I’m @yogabarreista (a nudge to my love of yoga annnd I’m a barre instructor, not a bartender) on there and Twitter. You can see all the fun stuff you’re missing in Charleston!

  • http://indulgeinspireimbibe.blogspot.com/ Daisy

    such cool instas! love the one of the city……it is just as beautiful in the snow!!

  • Lauren Harrelson

    Soooo. The real question for you! I’m a long time blog reader, from SC, and my hubs and I will be visiting Boston next week. If you had to pick one fabulous dinner locale, one fabulous lunch and one fabulous happy hour (we’re staying on the Harbor, close to the north end) …. where would you recommend!? So excited to see the city for the first time, and I definitely want to eat somewhere amazing…

    • http://www.hungrymeetshealthy.com/ Christina

      Oh gosh, I’m so new here that’s really hard to say. So far in that area (well, financial district) I really liked Granary Tavern. You could go there for for drinks or dinner….no happy hour in Boston unfortunately. :)

  • Meg Mittelstadt

    Just followed you! I’m @MegLaurel23 – you can scroll back and see some of my snaps of the beautiful city covered in snow :)
