Eats, eats, everywhere

Well, I understand it has been a few days since I've posted but I've been super busy... and not just with Green Week Challenges... I have some revealing to do tomorrow, Wednesday, Hump Day, but until then, here is what I have been up to...

Besides my six days a week (plus an extra double day on Wednesday nights) at the gym, I've been eating. I love food, by the way. And since I had a lot of 'me time' this weekend (I seriously love this post... I'm not sure why) I decided to treat myself to some raw food from Cafe Gratitude. Can anyone else tell that I like their food?
Macrobiotic Bowl
I AM WHOLE
Raw German Chocolate Layered Cake
(DELICIOUSNESS!)
Some kind of spicy chocolate fudge thing...

And then I did a little grocery shopping while at Whole Foods (where the Cafe is located).
And don't worry (cause I know you were), I brought my own bags for Green Week Challenges!
That's me, sportin' some Earth lovin'

Since those were my lunch items, I wanted to share my breakfast from Sunday morning.
 Teeccino Herbal Coffee
with a new items for me, So Delicious Coconut Creamer
Non-Dairy Goodness.
(Mmmmmm)

...Followed by...
A Straw-Mulberry Shake
Strawberries, mulberries, a splash of Coconut Creamer, water, one packet of Whole Food Smoothie Infusion (pretty good stuff), a few drops of Stevia, and ice (and maybe a dash of yacon syrup).
Blended goodness.
And another new item that I made:
In The Kind Diet, Alicia Silverstone shares a few recipes using Mochi.
Mochi sounded pretty interesting to me, so I made mine, baked, with sea salt and cinnamon.
And then I dipped 'em in maple syrup.
This is a must try. SO easy and SO good.
My Gigantic Breakfast of Champions
I was definitely full.

So, those were my eats for the weekend. Again, if you haven't hear yet (are you living under a rock?!) get your Green Day Challenges going, submitted, and posting! Share the knowledge of this great week of challenges. Love the Earth one canvas bag at a time, folks!

And come back tomorrow for some extra exciting news...

Hi Lori,

The food from Cafe Gratitude looks amazing. There is a Cafe Gratitude about an hour away from where I live, actually two, one in San Francisco and one in Healdsburg...I have got to go there soon!

The mochi looks good, what is it made out of? I will post about your green week challenge when I update my blog tonight.

Have a great day!
