Low Carb Richmond

If you're looking to start the New Year off with a new diet plan, National Keto Day on January 5th is the perfect time to begin! What is keto? You eliminate carbohydrates from your diet so that your body burns stored glycogen first. Once it burns through the glycogen, your body moves into a stage called ketosis and begins burning excess fat away. This diet is somewhat restrictive, often limited to foods like dairy, nuts, low-carbohydrate veggies, sustainably-raised meats, and healthy fats.

Unsure of how to prepare your meals for your keto diet? You're in luck! Our real estate agents have found six restaurants featuring low carb dining in Richmond for you to give it a try!

  1. Perch — 2918 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23230
    For a Pacific spin on comforting Virginia cuisine, head over to Perch in historic Scott's Addition. If you'd like to get the full Perch experience, sign up for one of their diverse weekly Chef's Table dinners. Of course, their dinner and lunch menus are just as tasty and change from week to week based on what fresh foods they can procure. Make a reservation for dinner and discover your new favorite keto dish.

Housewarming Party Etiquitte

One of the most joyful parts of the home buying process is just after closing when the pressure is finally off for everyone, and the homebuyer is ready to move in. Time to throw the housewarming party! If you're throwing this bash or you've been invited to one, there are certain rules of etiquette our REALTORS® want to share so you can have a blast without any faux pas.

Etiquette Tips For Homeowners

When you're planning your first housewarming party, you may not know where to begin. Good etiquette comes before you send out your first invitation. It all begins with when the party is scheduled. You may be impatient to have it as soon as possible, but it is important to make sure that your house is in good order before you plan. You shouldn't be living out of boxes or luggage when your guests show up at the front door. A housewarming party is a presentation, and you want to give yourself enough time to make a good impression.  

Other important points of etiquette include:

  • Invite new neighbors first to make a good first impression
  • Request that guests who are driving in RSVP to ensure sufficient parking spaces
  • Skip the gift registry and permit your guests to gift freely without pressure
  • Be prepared to provide snacks and refreshments in an easy-to-access area
  • Make sure there is enough well-prepared food for everyone during mealtimes
  • Be a personable host and greet each visitor in person, mingling with different groups throughout the event
  • Send thank-you notes for attendance, especially for any gifts that were received

Proper Etiquette For Guests

When it comes to etiquette slip-ups at a housewarming, it can be tougher on the guest than the host. It can be awkward visiting someone's home for the first time. Just remember these points of visitor's etiquette, and you should be fine.

National Sangria Day Richmond

Sweet, fruity sangria is refreshing on a warm summer day, but its versatility makes it a delightful beverage year-round. Raise a glass in honor of National Sangria Day on Friday, December 20, at one of these restaurants around Richmond recommended by our REALTORS®.

  1. Tazza Kitchen Scott's Addition - 1500 Roseneath Rd., Richmond 23230
    "Tazza" is an Italian word for a wide, shallow bowl on a tall stem used initially for drinking red wine. It should be no surprise a restaurant named Tazza Kitchen Scott's Addition features sangria starring applejack brandy and orange liqueur. Pair your drink with a brick oven-fired pizza or assortment of small plates after a day of viewing Richmond homes for sale

  2. Casa del Barco Restaurant & Tequilaria - 11800 W. Broad St., Suite 2516, Richmond 23233
    Every day's a fiesta at Casa del Barco Restaurant & Tequilaria, located in the upscale Short Pump Town Center. Relax on a sofa in the second-floor bar and choose between red or white sangria, available on its own, or as part of the tequila flights. The food menu includes traditional Mexican favorites such as tacos and enchiladas made with fresh, local ingredients.
