My First Time..

At a reallll vegetarian restaurant!  It was a full menu, mostly organic ingredients and everything! Yesterday I went to another province for the day with mom and dad, and they dropped me off there while they went somewhere’s else to eat with my aunt and uncle.  It’s called Calactus Cafe.  I forgot my camera in the car though 😦  The atmosphere was so relaxed, and it was decorated beautifully.  I got the special, because it was too hard to pick anything off the menu since it all sounded good.  It was a homemade Ginger Carrot Soup, Veggie-Pate open-faced sandwich topped with tomatoes, red onion and herbs, organic corn chips, tabouli salad and garlic tofu cream sauce (since I asked for no cheese on my sandwich).  This meal was to die for, I wish I knew what was in that tofu cream sauce.  And we shopped, at a mall and good old Costco.  Anyways.  This morning I had a basic bowl of banana oats again, I know, boring haha, topped with agave, walnuts, PB, raspberry/blueberry jam and some organic granola.

I had a packed lunch of some more Goddess Garbanzo sandwich topping and some whole wheat couscous, big bowl of greens/baby spinach and two clementines.  Packed for snack was a Cocoa Coffee Larabar.  After work I went to get my hair did, some highlights wOOp.

Supper is some homemade butternut squish soup-delicious! defrosted, and drizzled with some olive oil and pepper, and a defrosted piece of Organic Spelt Bread me and mom made.

After supper I did some laundry then went to the Grocery store.  Man things add up fast, it was craziness.  This is hardly any groceries.

Almond milk was on sale, and I had a bunch in the cart but had to put some back hehe.  And FIGS!  They’re dried, very good, taste kinda like apricots. I just finished making Sweet Potato Soup, a basic bunch of ingredients I threw together:

3/4 Bag Pre-Cut Sweet Potatoes (or about 5-6 full potatoes chopped)

1 Small Onion

1 Tbsp Organic Canola Oil

1 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon

1 Can Organic Vegetable Broth + 2-3 Cans Full of Water


I simmered the veggies, oil + broth/water until sweet potatoes were falling apart, then let pot cool some.  Threw it all into a food processor and blended until smooth.  Returned to pot, added spices.  Adding water until it was at the desired consistency.  I couldn’t stop taking “tastes” ahahahaha it’s basic but so delicious.

I’ll probably have one of these guys with a glass of Chocolate Almond Milk in a bit for dessert.
