So had church today which was great- had to hurry after the gym because my arm makes me take longer. ha. BUT I made it in time then went over to Blossom for lunch! Tried a new sandwhich. “Soy Bacon Burger” topped with tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and chipotle aioli with some cole slaw. HUGE! Also got some really good charred brussel sprouts. they were really good:) This is one of the best sandwiches to order here at Blossom. A healthy version of a cheeseburger with some crunchy soy bacon! YUMM .

Got to grab Wild Ginger for lunch today on Broome Street not to far from babycakes actually;) how convenient Cute little chinese vegan restaurant not far from China town – so the ambience was set. I got the Summer rolls to start all raw and so good. then the Mango Soy Protein with fresh mango in a plum sauce with zucchini sugar snap peas, peppers and onions. accompanied by a small green salad with carrot ginger dressing and a hot cup of Ginger tea. Amazing freshly made food. Definitely recommend it if you want some healthy chinese food:) Enjoy the pictures!

So today, the snow has pummeled the city, and the wind continues to blow.. it seems to be getting worse now.. Anyway I decided to brave the snow after hitting the gym and head over to “Sacred Chow” on Sullivan Street near Washington Square park.. Thank God for the subway systems in this weather:) It was a nice little trip.. then I got to Sacred Chow and I ordered 1/2 a seitan hoagie on wheat bread, and 1/2 caesar salad with tempeh strips.. then I got a sinner bar this was the most amazing “dessert” I’ve ever put in my mouth. also got a macaroon and a “jammie” pretty good stuff there! they have so many options on there menu.. mouth watering yum! Then I headed over to Union Square and went to wholefoods then took a cab home.. It was a nice day!:) Glad to be inside from the snow warm and cozy! Sacredchow.com

So today I went to Blossom Cafe on the Upper West Side.. right near the museum. Its an amazing little vegan organic restaurant:) The staff was really nice and the food was amazing! Of course I had to try their caesar salad which was awesome and I got some BBQ seitan over a Jicama and Carrot shred. Both were SOOO good. After I took home a couple of raw granola cookies which were just as good! Love this little cafe – definitely will go back!

So this week has been really great.. my mom was up visiting so we just ran around the city and tried a new vegan restaurant everyday.. and found the best of the best:) Today since she left we went back to an old favorite Peacefood on the Upper West Side for a little breakfast, but not before stopping in at Cafe Lola for a hot drink on 83rd:) Great morning:) Today we got a soy mocha drink, then split a caesar tempeh salad, and tofu scramble.. then got a chocolate ganache “Cake” and “caramel “Cheesecake” ( of course all vegan and no sugar.. amazing they make stuff this good:)} So any who.. the week has officially ended and now its back to reality– sometimes I think life would be more fun if it was all play and no work. sound good?
