April 29, 2011
This was the first trip over there this year and we have never been so early in the season. It was p-r-e-t-t-y cold so we didn't last long, but still a nice little day trip.
On our way back we stopped by Fairfax for some coffee and walked into a little vegan/raw restaurant. Fairfax is a small town, and very hippi-like (to me). Anyway, Eva was SUCH a poor sport about the place, she said she couldn't stand the smell and had her nose plugged the whole time (geez), and other than my raw brownie I wasn't too impressed either to be honest. Alex's blin was good but my combo plate of wraps was so so. My friend Liska posts about her raw/vegetarian food ventures and I guess I have become quite inspired subconsciously... I love looking at cookbooks and the last few times I was at the bookstore I found myself looking through more and more raw cookbooks which never really appealed that much to me before... After the restaurant I decided I will try making some of my own stuff, for I was certain I could do a better job (haha)! The other day I finally bought a Raw Cookbook I am obsessing over right now. It is very simple, and gives just enough ingredients to get my own creativity going. This week I have been eating (96%) raw and have really enjoyed it!
I leave you with a few things going into the store and hope you all enjoy your weekend.
