Weekend in St. Louis: Local Harvest Cafe

Hi everyone!

I’m back! My Share the Love and Week in the Lens of Instagram posts were MIA this weekend because Erik and I were in St. Louis at an ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) workshop. Erik needed to get his personal training certifications up to date with a nationally recognized organization and I decided to join him!

Thus, if the test goes well … I’m going to be an ACSM certified personal trainer soon! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, but just kind of needed a push to go for it … and what better push than going to a workshop with your husband? Yep, that’s what I thought, too.

Local Harvest Café

While in the Lou, we got to eat at a couple of fun new {to us} places. Our Friday workshop got over at 8 p.m. and we headed to Local Harvest.

We decided the KC equivalent {but a little different} would be Blue Bird. Definitely our kind of place with a big focus on local and seasonal ingredients. At least 50% of their ingredients comes from within 150 miles of St. Louis.

Their menu is awesome … it was hard to decide what to get!

Not just the menu, but we loved the décor and overall ambiance too.

For dinner, we shared the vegan enchiladas:

And the veggie burger:

Everything was delicious! After eating random little snacks in the car all day and trying to find decent food near our workshop location on breaks {there weren’t many}, it was really nice to eat a good, local meal.
