Panera Bread

Often my lunch dates with Imaad end up at Panera Bread. For those who know this place know how cozy and comfy it is on a cold wintery blistery day. The soups just fill your heart with warmth and the salads are scrumptious and delish ! If your looking for a quick bite and dont want to compromise on quality; this place offers clean eating to those that want to skip on the junk food option. The cozy fire place and friendly staff are also another reason I keep going back to this place. MY favourites usually are their Chilled Soba noodle Salad with Shrimp and the vegetarian creamy tomato soup.

whole foods

My experience at wholefoods is always a great one. I can spend close to an hour there walking up and down every single aisle. my favourite section without a doubt is always the meat and seafood section. however on my last trip there i spent close to an hour in the spice aisle.. I have always been intrigued with using saffron in food. Saffron is the dried stigma ( female part of a flower) . Its flavour is woody, bittersweet and slighty honeylike. Saffron is often used in indian cooking however it is also a favourite spice in to north african, arabic and spanish cooking.l !
