So, where were we?

The weekend got away from me.... When I last left you Alex and I were headed to dinner at Freshii. (York Mills/Leslie location). Here's what we walked up to...
When we walked in, this is what we saw... a bunch of clipboards (and pencils) on the wall. You check off what you'd like to eat (wrap, salad, soup) and what you'd like in it, then you hand it to the person behind the counter.They have pre-made wraps too... Alex got the turkey cobb (I custom ordered mine)We ordered and then took our wraps home to eat. Here's Alex's... he really enjoyed it!Here's mine. They wrap the outside of your wrap with the order sheet you filled out.Here's a crappy photo of my wrap in my hand. Decent size.Here's the inside. This was the first disappointment - it's ALL spinach (I ordered stuff in it besides spinach, but I felt like I was eating spinach in a wrap).
So... after all was said and done I went back to double-check my nutritional info. I had misunderstood and thought I could get a wrap which was wrapped in spinach instead of a tortilla... but, when I got there I found out that wasn't the case. Not so bad, it's a whole wheat tortilla and it's pretty thin... it can't be THAT bad, right? Well, damn... it was EIGHT POINTS! My 4pt wrap turned into 12pts because of that wrap! I could have had a footlong turkey breast sub for that!!! Then we decided to figure out how much Alex's was (turkey, avocado, bacon, egg)... you ready? TWENTY FIVE POINTS!! I'm not even kidding!

We have decided we may not go back there any time soon. Great store, just would rather have subway...

Hey there, stranger!!
So sad that Freshii was not all you thought it would be. I was interested to hear your report! The bowls they had on the menu looked intriguing but I hadn't figured out the nutritional info on them. They're probably high too, I suppose...
Hope all is going well!
I'm running the half on Sunday and I'm ready for it to be done!! Too many long runs lately...ouch!
