Another lunch of Fresh Vegetable Salad and Asha Reshteh and then up to Jacksonville to pick up Mike’s son.

But before we hit the airport, we went to have dinner with Mike’s other son at Wasabi a Japanese Steakhouse. We had met up with him several weeks ago at the same restaurant.

And we had the same thing… Filet and Shrimp Hibache…. I of course had the vegetables, Zucchini, Squash, Carrots, Onions, and Broccoli. Before hand I asked for a Seaweed Salad and I had cold Sake.  I also asked the chef to make the Rice with no Egg. But I couldn’t say anything about all the butter he used… because there’s a table full of people waiting for him to cook for them.

I begged Mike for a warm weather weekend excursion… and I got a trip to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, only to find out it wasn’t as warm as I thought it would be.

We had enough of the cold and snow from up north and when we drove back down to Florida, it was still cold. So I thought, a trip south would warm us up. But temps in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale were only 10 degrees warmer putting them in the 60’s 😦

Regardless, we hit the road Saturday morning and I packed the left over Hibachi Vegetables for lunch which I ate as soon as I got in the car. I did manage to juice two Carrot, Celery, Spinach, Apple drinks with the new VitaMix Juicer, and I made a Fruit Smoothie too!

Dinner was the usual Pier 66 culinary excursion. The food, atmosphere, and service are so amazing, it’s always a treat to go there. Each time I go there, I get the same Green Salad with out any Feta Cheese and this weekend Oil and Vinegar instead of their creamy dressing.  To spice things up I added a Baked Potato too in addition to a couple of Glasses of White Wine.

Sunday we got up to head down to Miami and found out the Food Networks Wine & Food Festival was taking place on the beach in South Beach. We decided to have lunch on Lincoln Street at a Rustic Pizza Restaurant we visited in November with my cousins when they came in town for the cruise. Mike and I split a 16″ medium pizza.

My half was the Vegetable side with no Cheese on a Wheat crust and Mike’s side was the Mushroom Pizza with Cheese.  

Then we continued walking toward the Ocean, where we scoped out the Wine & Food Festival. It turns out, in order to get on the beach to walk around and sample wines, foods, etc. we had to pay $230 per person. A price a little to steep for a couple of hours of testing.! So we went across the street and sat at The Carlyle and had Daquiries and an appetizer dish of Chips and Calamari.

Sunday Morning was a tough ride home….. tooo many Daquiries last night and a bad diet all around. We stopped at Einstein Bros. Bagels for a Whole Grain Bagel with Butter and the middle scooped out and to drink I got a Frozen Mocha Latte.  As we were driving north, I begged Mike to stop in Palm Beach, to see how the other half lives.

We drove up along Ocean Ave (A1A) and saw the mansions facing the ocean and then we stopped at the Breakers Hotel. It’s where some of the “Heartbreakers” movie was filmed. And the hotel is also supposed to be a famous, historic resort as well.

Further north we stopped outside of Titusville for lunch, which turned out to be Long John Silver’s Fish and Fries Combo with a couple of Hush Puppies. I’m still having feedback from all that grease I ate earlier.

I juiced and filled my two mugs for the road… and I also packed a quick leftover meal from Moby Dicks’ to eat while we drive to Philadelphia.  I’m glad I did, because my Veggie Wrap was the most I ate… next to all the Bombay Sapphire and Tonics I inhaled.

I actually had 3 cocktails throughout the pre-wedding night. And I felt I should indulge, because I looked good in my new dress.

I especially looked good walking through the Buffet Line and taking little to nothing. I kept real close to my raw eating plan. There were some fried foods on the line and cheeses, but I didn’t indulge. I ate the fresh Veggies on the line, I had some Tortilla Chips, and some stuffed crab stuffed mushrooms.

In addition to the alcohol I drank during the night, at the hotel, I ate two cupcakes. I didn’t eat enough good food, so I got really hungry and indulged.:(

Sunday, we got up to attend the mid morning wedding and brunch that followed. This was the day I got a whole bunch of good raw foods inside of me. After the lovely wedding we snacked on a buffet of fresh carrots, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, broccoli and salsas. I had a plate full of some of the different salsas with crackers and the veggies. I thought that was going to be the brunch, but the staff had us eating that while they prepared the brunch buffet.

It was a typical breakfast brunch with grapes, and pineapples. I made myself a bagel and locks with butter, onions, capers and tomatoes. It was delicious!!!! And of course I had a piece of wedding cake, which was, Carrot Cake.

For dinner that night, I made some crab cakes with carrots, celery and seasonings for Mike and his sun. And for me I roasted some Asparagus in Olive Oil with chopped Onions, Cumin, and Paprika. I scooped out a little Hummus and dipped it with some Whole Wheat Bread. Then I ate the remaining pieces of Carrot Cake Wedding Cake I snuck out of Philadelphia.
