My Weekend Treat .. Panera Bread

For the past two weeks I have been eating like an AWESOME PERSON in hopes of losing some of my belly jelly. I’ve avoided going out to eat due to the option temptations that a beautifully colored menu provides. Since I’ve rocked for two weeks I decided it was time for me to test my will power and to give myself a little treat.

My eating establishment of choice was Panera Bread. I love the freshness, quality, healthiness, and food options. Normally when I eat at Panera Bread I choose to eat the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad but on this day, I chose something different.

Chicken Sorrentina Pasta w a cup of Tomato Soup- Just a few words to describe this dish.. oh so yummy! The fresh spinach leaves mixed with the fresh turkey and pasta and then each bite is dipped into the amazing tomato soup. SN- Anytime I order or make tomato soup, I use it as a dipper. 

Fuji Apple Chicken Salad – This is what I normally order but my husband ordered it instead. I think besides the freshness of it all, my favorite part are the walnuts! 

My baby girl is too little to eat a kid’s meal, so I asked the cashier if they could charge me for a bowl of tomatoes and turkey. They did and it was only a $1. My child ate some of the bowl and then decided it was more important to play on the floor while stealing pieces of her daddy’s bread. 

I can’t wait to go back to Panera Bread and try a new dish. I should probably study the menu so I know what to get before my visit.. I would hate to hold the line up like I normally do and frustrate my  husband with my indecisiveness.

What are your favorite places to treat yourself to after trying to lose your belly jelly?

  1. I’ve always loved the broccoli cheddar soup at Panera Bread. My favorite place to go to splurge is Bonefish Grill … I have a weakness for their fried calamari. The sauce that comes with the calamari is amazing! Definitely not something to eat when trying to watch the belly though. 🙂

  2. I love Panera Bread!!! I just wish I was more adventurous with my palette bc I get the exact same thing every time…the bacon turkey bravo sandwich. With that tomato basil bread and gouda cheese…mmmm…now you have my mouth watering! lol

  3. I’m drooling over here. I love Panera Bread! I don’t have the willpower to fight the belly jelly jigglemakers though. All those delicious desserts – OMG!!! So I only go when I know I can eat whatever I want lol. Shame on me!

  4. Panera Bread is definitely a go to! I tend to stick with their soups and salads. Great choice!

  5. I love Panera Bread and their selections. Sadly, what I like would not help by belly jelly! xoxo San

  6. Looks Yummy! I may just be hitting up Panera Bread today with my little one; although the last time we went she only wanted the Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich. Lol!
