Fresh Vegetable Salad

Fresh Vegetable Salad

I love it when I can go out and still eat the foods I was able to eat before I took out dairy, meat and sugar from my diet.

Phad Thai Lunch

Phad Thai Lunch

This afternoon, I met up with a friend of mine at a Thai restaurant. I was still able to have my usual Phad Thai dish. But this time I chose the Vegetable Phad Thai with no Egg.

And the best part, it was still great. Infact, I ate the rest of the left over later in the afternoon before I left the house on some more errands.

This evening, I drank my afternoon juice which I’ve been putting Beats into to help my circulation. I love Beats!!!!

Then I went into the refrigerator and ate the little bit of left over Fresh Vegetable Salad I made the other night. A very light food day today. Something to be proud of.

Tomorrow I’m going to go to the Anytime Fitness Gym to check out there 7:45AM Pilates class. Still no Reformer Class to be found here in Palm Coast.:(

Vegetable Salad

Today's Vegetable Salad

Out running around this morning…Mike and I happened upon a great Mediterranean Restaurant in Downtown D.C. off L street and 20th. We walked in and the place wasn’t much to look at, but when you neared the back of the restaurant you saw all the food laid out. It looked great, the food was presented in buffet style with so many colors, salads, rices, and dips, it was great.

I actually put together a green salad with some Red Bell Peppers, Olives, Red Onions, and an Oil based dressing. Then I picked up a Rice dish, Eggplant dish, and a Mushroom, Green Bean Salad. Yah know, Mike told me before we went in, I think you’re going to like this place. It has all the foods you eat.! Well he was right. 🙂

Then tonight, it was great… Mike and I unloaded the car of drying cleaning and some shopping items. And immediately took to the kitchen to make our respective meals for dinner. He made his Gormazabzi (Meat, Bean, Onion Dish) with Rice and I made this great looking Vegetable Salad. I chopped up Asparagus, Broccoli, Red and Orange Bell Peppers, Sweet Peas, Carrots. I put together an Olive Oil and Vinegar dressing with seasonings like Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Celery Salt, Thyme.

Vegetable Salad:
Sweet Peas
Red & Orange Bell Peppers

At 9AM this morning, we had a meeting with our real estate agent here in Santa Monica, and I got up later than I anticipated so I didn’t have time for a workout. But instead we rushed over the Fairmont Hotel to me Petra. When we got there, she was waiting for us on the sidewalk in front of the Fig Restaurant entrance. It was great to see her, we had been e-mailing back and forth about properties this year, but it was still nice to meet face to face with her.

It so happens, Petra is from Hungary(she was born there, I’m 1st generation American/Hungarian born in the U.S.) and it’s nice to meet up with people from my nationality. It’s not often I get to do so, so it’s nice when it happens. Plus, Petra is very pleasant and I found out this morning she also just recently went Raw too. After several days of people questioning my position to not eat meat, it was a relief to find someone who’s been getting the same flack from everyone too. Petra’s been getting flack from her mother, friends, and other family members for her decision, but like me, she agrees it just feels good to Eat Raw! She exclaims she has more energy then before and she just feels better, physically and mentally. And I agree with her on all those points. So why can’t everyone else see that and just be happy and try it for themselves.????

After we parted ways with Petra, Mike and I continued to do some running around until 1 in the afternoon… And by that time, I was famished. We raced home to eat a special dish Mike’s mom cooked for us yesterday. It’s a Vegetable based stew with Noodles… Mike actually made the same thing for me once in Florida, but this was 100 times better. While we were out, we stopped into Costco, where I picked up some Whole Grain Wheat Bread to go along with this afternoons dish. Perfect pairing!!!

But now, as we sit around the house visiting with Mike’s other sister and waiting for his brother to stop by, I can feel the bread weighing on my stomach. Tonight after dinner, will be reason for another walk around Santa Monica. Speaking of dinner, I hope we have some more of the Vegetable Stew…. or we could have left overs from other meals we’ve have this week already. Mike’s mom is keeping us in suspense.!!!
