This post is dedicated to Mediterranean sandwiches. Three Meds, three days. Let’s recap and crown a winner.
Saturday: Mediterranean Chicken Sandwich from Olive House, the most authentic Mediterranean fare of the three.
Sunday: The Med from Noodles & Co. In a pita.
Monday: Mediterranean Sandwich with added chicken from Potbelly. My current obsession.
Best flavor: Noodles & Co. There were more veggies in this than Olive House, and the veggies seemed fresher than Potbelly’s.
Best bread: This is tough. I love warm pita that is slightly chewy, so Noodles & Co takes the point. Potbelly is a close second with the crispy whole grain roll.
Best texture: Potbelly by far. Potbelly has a dense sandwich, and I like the crunchy crust paired with the humus.
Best looking: Olive House was the most aesthetically pleasing.
The healthiest: I suppose this depends what you’re looking at. Noodles & Co was the lightest, but Olive House’s was probably the freshest and had more heart-healthy oil.
Other considerations: Olive House’s came with fries, Noodles & Co came with soup or salad, and Potbelly’s came alone. Noodles & Co also has the fancy pop machine with one million choices, and we all know how I feel about pop.
Shout out to Ryan because he suggested we go to Potbelly for Monday Night Date Night. Also known as our last date before we become a long-distance couple. This is very sad, but 3 hours isn’t the worst it could be.
Speaking of Ryan and food, a few nights ago we pooled together both of our pantries and refrigerators to create a smorgasbord of our meager remains. Maybe not so meager.
Somehow we both ended up choosing only Ryan’s food except 2 eggs and mozzarella cheese…
Apartment update: still a work in progress but feeling more like home
Monday: run/strength circuit at the park (4 miles total with lunges, push ups, squats, and tri dips thrown in)
Tuesday: 7 miles tempo— with 4mi @ 7:30 pace.
