hey, hey, hey! it’s hump-day again! time flieeeessss, doesn’t it? four days until i hit the road! i still have a lot of packing to do. and because of that, my room is a pigsty right now, which is really bugging me. but i won’t have to deal with it much longer! i have a few people i still need to say goodbye to, and i feel overwhelmed trying to figure out when i should see each of them. all day saturday i’m helping cashier at a body building show again, and then i leave first thing sunday morning. so i don’t have much time! anywho, let’s get to the nummies. this morning’s breakfast was fab. i mixed more cinnamon into the leftover chia pudding from yesterday and it was much betta.
this breakfast was totally raw! cool! and i think i’m eating at a raw restaurant for lunch today. now the pressure is on to make a raw dinner tonight in order to keep up the theme! we’ll see about that…haha…at night i’m usually in the mood to cook! (with heat.) but as much as i love cooked foods, i can’t deny that i feel more energized after a raw meal. on that note, i’ll now show you a 0% raw meal, haha.
this was yesterday’s lunch. it was delicious! i’m glad i decided to throw the pita into the mix, because it tasted great with the veggies and garbanzos. and i finally made kale chips! yeah yuhhhh! i loved them! i seasoned this batch with sea salt and chili powder. yum! i’ll certainly be making kale chips again. next up: my dinner at real food daily last night! it was a great family dinner. i enjoyed every minute of it. of course little ol’ indecisive me debated over what to order, but i finally decided on “el bandito rojo” because when i asked the waiter about it, he said that it’s his favorite dish on the menu. that was good enough for me! now…i present to you…drum roll pleeeease…EL BANDITO ROJO, courtesy of real food daily, the most astounding vegan joint on the planet (as far as this chica is concerned.) i love you ann gentry!
now you KNOW i’m not about to say “i ate half of this and felt soooo full.” ladies and gentlemen, i ate the entire thing! yes, i did. every last grain of rice, every last bit of sauce i could get onto my fork. pshh, as if it was hard to polish off that tasty plate. since i take so long to eat, i was still working on my plate after everyone else was finished. this is not a rarity when i dine out with people. so i told them to order dessert while i finished my meal, since i knew i was going to be too full to have some anyway. i finished my dinner RIGHT as dessert arrived. and even though i have trouble eating dessert directly after finishing a meal, i couldn’t help but have a few bites of the coconut cream tart. ahhhh, it was heavenly. but just a few bites sufficed, since i was pretty satiated from that incredible dinner! i neglected to take a picture of this divine dessert, and for that i apologize…because it really was amazing.
that’s it for today, loves. i wish i had time to do some blog reading right now, but i really don’t! i’m going to make myself a cup of mayan cocoa spice tea and then i have to get started with my day! but i’ll be back later to do the usual blog-stalking and commenting. love you all!
