Yummy Annapolis!

Quaint and historic Annapolis was beautiful as well as a dining delight! In the midst of all the vintage American architecture, it was not hard to find some modern day health grub ; )

Our first stop was a quick one where they had a Whole Foods, the holy grail of health food, and a Baja Fresh. For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of this healthy version of Mexican fast food, it is a must. As a Californian, Baja is a staple and oh so wonderful to find abroad. My usual is the tostada salad with no meat, no cheese or cream, and extra veggies. Another great menu selection is the veggie burrito bowl with all the flavor of the burrito and half of the starchy carbs ; ) They do not cook with lard, msg or any other unsavory additives - check them out at Baja Fresh. Another incarnation of yummy fast-ixan food, is Moe's which I found in downtown. They too have some yummy items, like the vegetarian Personal Trainer Salad. Visit Moe's Southwestern Grill for more info.

After walking all over one of our nation's best historical cities, we had a hankerin' for Thai food ; ) We filed into Lemongrass (167 West Street, Annapolis, MD,410-280-0086). Big on seafood due to it's close proximity to the Atlantic but also big on good curry and veggie options. Everyone was satisfied here as was the persnickety vegan ; )

Later on, I thought I might pack some snack for the next leg of our trip so I sauntered into Sun and Earth Foods. They had a nice sized market with a great little deli where a packed away a few veggie sandwiches, juices and goodies to munch on for the next few days. They are located at 1933 West St, Annapolis, Maryland 21401, 410-266-6862.

I absolutely would love to come back and spend more time here as I know they must have a ton more places that would keep my belly happy as well as my traveling team. Be it their famous seafood for those who enjoy it or their colonial like hospitality, Annapolis should be a welcomed addition to your traveler's check list.
