Pho just might be the answer to how to find healthy-on-the-road food. I discovered a gem of a restaurant called Pho Duy in Greeley, Colorado. If you have never tried this Vietnamese delicacy, you are missing out. So just what is Pho ? It is flavorful broth that is served with a plateful of of fresh vegetables, herbs, noodles and your choice of protein. You add the items that you want into the hot steaming broth for a custom made bowl of healthy deliciousness. I like to order a spring roll (which is healthier fresh version of an egg roll) with my pho. Beats burgers and fries every time!
I found another wonderful place called Pho-natic in downtown Denver, at Grant and Colfax. Delicious! I took a hot, steaming bowl of chicken pho to my daughter who has been sick. She said that it felt like she was healing with each bite. I brought a home rare steak and well done brisket pho for my husband, seafood for myself and Vietnamese meatball for my son. I would love to find a good recipe for the broth. It is a complex mixture of spices and flavors.
The picture below is platter of seafood, herbs and vegetables for the pho from Pho-natic.
I haven’t been to a Zumba class in a couple of years and I decided to ramp up my workout routine. There was a new class starting today so I went for 1 solid hour of arse kicking aerobics. The instructor ended the session with the Thriller dance. Thriller? It was so much fun! I haven’t danced like a zombie since the 80’s. Loved it! BTW, are there any Zumba fans out there?
