Foodie Friday | Green Goodies

Its no secret that I consider myself to be a cupcake connoisseur. I've searched high and low for the best cupcakes in Oklahoma City and Green Goodies gets the Amanda Bradley stamp of approval.  But, my dears, that's not what I want you to drool over today.

Nope. Today is about real food. Real good food, that is.

Recently, Green Goodies started serving lunch. A healthy, gourmet, cafe style lunch. It was a genius idea on their part. If I worked closer to Green Goodies, I would eat lunch there on the reg. I'd have a usual and they'd know me by name. Or at least as, "that tall girl who inhales her food."

Green Goodies specializes in deliciously healthy food. They offer Paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, vegan and dairy free options, which I am all about. Most of the time, "healthy" choices don't exactly make your mouth water, but folks, I promise you, these will. The BATH (bacon, avocado, turkey, ham) sandwich was one of the tastiest I've ever had.

In my whole life.

Forever and ever amen.

Sorry, Mom, your sandwiches are a close second.

Served on Paleo bread with fresh tomatoes, greens and a house made aioli, the BATH is sure to have very dirty noises coming out of your mouth. Ahhhh, mmmm, oh my gosh, suh good.

The White Truffle Egg Salad Sandwich isn't a bad choice, either. Or anything else on the menu, probably. With soup, salad and cupcakes to boot, you'll be in a food coma in no time. The best kind of coma, obviously.

Word on the street has it that Green Goodies is now doing brunch. You better believe I'll be checking that out ASAP. They are seriously barking up the right tree.

You can view the cafe menu with weekly specials on their Facebook page. Green Goodies accept the Keep It Local card.

Friend Dating

Ah, dating. That awkward stage between being an acquaintance and being in a relationship. Its new and exciting....but what do you talk about?

I may have locked down the hottest bachelor in all of Okla., but I'm still dating. Friend dating, that is. You see, I'm happy as can be in Oklahoma City, but I'm missing one important thing: best friends. My besties all live elsewhere while I'm, for lack of a better word, a transplant. I love hanging out with my babe on the reg, but I still need some lady time in my life! I mean, who am I supposed to get pedicures and go see the next Nicholas Sparks movie with? 

In college, friend dating was easy; everyone was in the same boat. You had classes with people, parties every weekend, group projects....everywhere you went you met and got to know people. Now? Its freakin' hard, man. Meeting people, let alone people you like, is not exactly a regular occurrence. 

I watch shows like Sex and the City and want those friends in my life. Those weekend brunch dates, shopping buddies, call you up at 2 a.m. to tell you the latest drama, come over without being invited type friends. But, even if you share all the same hobbies, have identical Pinterest boards, had the same major or even share some of the same friends, it doesn't mean you will click. And even if you do, its hard to find the time to build that friendship between work, working out and the uber-important me-time. 

All that being said, I'm on the market. I'm looking for the Snooki to my JWOWW. If you like puppies, junk food, gossip, taking selfies, drinking beer, working out, laying out and/or trashy TV, let's be friends.
