Posts Tagged ‘Philadelphia’

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.

We went up to Philadelphia Tuesday… got an early start… and spent the entire day on the road.  But that didn’t mean the Raw Eating went out the door… I did start with Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte with Soy, which I didn’t finish. And I had a couple morsels of the Apple Bran Muffin I bought for Mike.

But, I turned all that morning calories into something healthier for lunch. We did manage to find a Whole Foods Grocery Store, where both Mike and I indulged on a great green lunch. I had a Green Salad loaded up with Bell Peppers, Red Onions, Raisins and Oil & Vinegar Dressing. Plus, I saw an Asparagus and Sun dried Tomatoes Salad and a Cucumber and Tomato Salad, which I loaded into a small Togo box.  Both of my boxes came up to a pound at the register, because I paid less then the $7.99/lb. price for the Salad Bar.

Too tired to go home and make something for dinner…. Mike suggested we go out. So I picked the restaurant Wildfire in the Tyson’s Two Shopping Center. Where, I did have two Glasses of Kendall Jackson Riesling. For dinner, I had a Waldorf salad with an Oil & Vinegar Dressing and a Baked Potato. I did munch on a couple bites of Onion Bread. But I kept my restraint for the Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream that Mike ordered for dessert. I was so proud of myself for not even taking a bite; I had my glass of wine to keep me company. 🙂

For the most part, I think I did really good and I felt good afterwards.
