For dinner we went to Mike’s cousins house in Tarzana and we ate Green Salad, Veggie Stir Fry with Tofu, and a Persian dish Gormazabsi with Beef but I picked out the meat. No Wine, I just drank Green Tea. Which wasn’t good, because of the caffeine. But at least at his cousins house, my raw food eating plan was met with excitement and positive encouragment. Simply, because she’s cutting down on her meat intake as well. Boy it’s funny how many people I’m running into who are changing there eating habits, from eating meat to not eating meat anymore!!!!
