souplantation

Also referred to as “Pooplantation”…Why oh why do I continue to frequent this restaurant? After each visit, I always feel bloated and lethargic – just overall crummy. Yet, I will always return. Yesterday, I even tried to avoid the carbs (I can mow down on that thick white bread and those blueberry muffins) so I wouldn’t negate my morning workout. I did have dessert, and I’ll confess, in the soup bowl, but I didn’t place a chocolate chip muffin at the bottom of my bowl (like I usually do). I stuck with only water too. Really, a moderately healthy lunch. However I still felt headachy and bloated all afternoon and into the evening. Granted, I thought I was coming down with something on Sunday, so there’s a chance, I would have felt this way anyhow, but I was fine before Pooplantation. When my husband came home last night I was sprawled on our living room floor asleep like I was dead (he thought it was funny because he found a Cheerio on my chest), but I felt so icky. Today, I’m fine. Will I visit Souplantation again, probably…it’s a guilty pleasure (or a sick pleasure) I suppose.

I love that place, too, but I have to limit myself to once every six months for the same reasons you mentioned. Too. Much. Good. Stuff.

Which Souplantation do you go to? The one in Lakewood craptacular, but the Garden Grove and Torrance troughs are pleasant enough to service all of your stuff-your-pie-hole-
with-rabbit-food needs.

cheerio, alyssa! that's hilarious. hope you feel better.

i suffer from the same addiction! they used to have the best apple taffy muffins ever. i tried in vain to recreate them, and now i can't even find them at souplantation! given what the chocolate chip muffins do to you, though, maybe that's best.
