Sorry about not blogging. I have been out of town (still am actually). I am having a great time but I haven’t been taking many pictures. I thought about giving up on blogging entirely. I have been a little down in the dumps because I have decided to retake the MCAT and we drove past my dream med school with MCAT requirements just out of my reach. I was bummed. The boy talked me into keeping the blog going so I am going to start posting regularly again. I can’t wait to share the highlights of my trip, including a vist to STICKY FINGERS BAKERY! I tried Daiya vegan cheese and ascended to a higher plane of deliciousness. Check back later for a full update.

Beach Haus!

WE HAVE ARRIVED!

The house is so amazing!!! I will be posting pictures tomorrow since we didn’t arrive until after dark. Since this is a food blog I thought I would post a picture of the kitchen.

keeetchen!!!

On the way I had a delicious salad from Earth Fare. It is called the Gado Gado salad loosely based on an Indonesian dish. So good!

I also had a Tiramisu which is my favorite dessert ever. The cream is very marscapone like but it is coconut cream based.

I promise I didn't eat it all by myself

I’ll post more tomorrow. I want to spend time with my peeps.

I realize it sounds like I am drogging but I assure you I am simply excited about being at the beach with friends.

Highlights

Since I was bad about blogging for the past few days I am just going to post the pictures and only write about the highlights. I had oatmeal for brekkers both days and couscous salad leftovers for lunch.

We bought a whole box of vanilla Dipped Mojo bars. They are so good! I would marry them and half little half vanilla dipped delicious babies with them. I could eat the whole box in one sitting, but I have managed to keep it to 2 a day. I am going to start only eating one a day so they last longer. They are so sweet and vanilla-y. They are also a little salty from the nuts (almonds!) and crispy pieces. There is also dried fruit like cherries! Yum! I bought 2 chocolate dipped and 2 PBandJ dipped ones as well but I haven’t been able to tear myself away from the vanilla to try them. If you have had them, what do you think?

I also tried some antioxidant juice that was on sale. It was Mangosteen and Passion Fruit. I love to eat mangosteens in Sri Lanka so I was excited about the flavor. It was tasty, but I wouldn’t pay full price for it. $3.49 no. $0.99 yes!

I made pizza for dinner two nights in a row. They were not the least processed things in the world since I bought the crust and used vegan cheese (Follow Your Heart Motz) and Tofurkey breakfast sausage as toppings. The first night my friend Michelle came over and we shared a pizza. We went half and half with the sauces. I made a green curry sauce (ooo spicy yum) for one half and used jarred pesto on the other half (doesn’t hold a candle to homemade). We topped the green curry half with cilantro, vegan cheese, sausage bits and green pepper. The other half got kalmata olive and no cilantro. Both halves had mandarin oranges (not as good as pineapple, but still yummy).

It was so good I had to make it again last night to share with Drew! We did two pizzas because 2 crusts came in the package. The first one was green curry sauce, leftover sausage, cilantro, green pepper, vegan cheese and spinach

The other had pesto sauce, vegan cheese, spinach, and Yves veggie salami (it was ok).

In case you were wondering, green curry pizza sauce is just a lot of curry paste in a little bit of coconut milk. I also chucked in a crushed garlic clove and microwaved for a few seconds.

Last night I also made some hummus and black bean dip to take on our trip. I will share more about them as I eat them, but they are good. 

As far as exercise goes I have been keeping up with p90x (except I skipped Kenpo) and taking bike rides (love). Also, I helped out with a local outdoors festival on sunday so I carried lots of kayaks and stuff. Oooh and I went swimming for the first time this summer!

I am so excited about our little trip! I bought some new music to listen to on the way. Have you heard Spoon’s song “Don’t you evah”? It is catchy and fun to dance to!

Expect some drogging from me during the next few days

Oops!

I was packing and yoga-ing until the wee hours last night so I didn’t have time to post. I am not flaking out and I will be updating the blog again soon, hopefully this afternoon. I am headed out of town this evening and I don’t know if I will have internet access. I’ll still be sure to take lots of pictures to share!

In the mean time, please read my older posts if you haven’t already. Also, I would love some comments and still need some ideas for that can of Sweet Potato Puree. check the bottom of the linked post

 

I’M GOING TO THE BEACH!!!
