Thirdly, be proud of me – though I still had a yogurt bowl this morning, it was pretty different.
This is big.
I made this:
It was alright, but honestly, there’s a reason I stick to what I like… because it’s good! This yogurt was way too sugary-sweet. I missed my Chobani. I missed my berries, too.
Oh well. I tried.
The very exciting meal of the day was when we had a surprise (well, to me, at least) food truck at the office today. Now, you know I’ve been psyched about food trucks in the past, but I often find they make me feel sick. The name of this truck, alone, was enough to make me check out their menu.
The name? Clean Street Food.
One thing I was especially impressed about, before I even saw the truck, was that the chef, Jack, personally came into our office in the morning to pass out free samples.
That’s a guy that knows how to market his product! I thought it also showed a lot of pride in said product, which made me even more excited to try it.
I tried samples of the Marinated Steak, Vegan Chickpea Salad, and Grilled Pork. They were all great, but (despite really not being a red meat person), I was pretty quickly sold on the steak.
Check out all of the options, though:
I wanted to try everything! I think I might go for the Thai Chicken next time.
The real treat was when I went down to the truck and talked with Chef Jack for a little while. I told him about the blog (hi, Jack!) and about my clean eating philosophy, which led him to tell me all about his food and where it comes from.
(I’m an ass… I totally didn’t realize that I did not catch his face in the light at all. Whoops. Too bad, too. He’s cute.)
For instance, the steak on the sandwich I got was Australian tri-tip and the cows are range-fed. Very, very cool that Chef Jack cares about where his sources are from and how humane the conditions are.
This sandwich was awesome. The parmesan on the sandwich melted in my mouth, the bread was chewy and doughy (my favorite), and the entire thing was packed with flavor.
Oh, and the chickpea salad was also served on the side! I liked that touch.
The best news is, I don’t feel gross as I write this (usually, after food trucks, I do). It really is all clean food!
Big thumbs up to this truck.
I’ll definitely be looking out for them in the future. If you’re in LA, check them out! You can find them on twitter here, too.
