On Friday morning, I looked out the window to see that Honolulu was my favorite color.
I’m not sure what had to align for this, but it was very surreal . . .
Day 12 + 13
I have to admit, the last 2 days have been stressful and so I haven’t really felt that great physically or mentally. I still really feel like I have a bad cold brewing too.
Add to that, too many tastes of non-gluten-free foods at work and even a drink last night with the girls.
Here is a picture of the vegan breakfast burrito I developed before they were wrapped up for the masses. Its a tofu scramble with potato topped with eggplant “bacon” (so easy to make!) and some daiya vegan cheddar.
Customers were looking for warm breakfast type sandwiches and I finally made something that fit the bill. Apparently, they sold pretty well too!
I tried to up my raw food intake with a giant hot/cold bar purchase from whole foods, but I wasnt all that impressed with what I put together this time.
I actually found myself craving eggs and meat a lot on Friday which consequently were the days that I have been feeling extra weak. Im not sure what this means, but I do know that I go through phases like this when I am vegan. Ive done so many diets/cleanses and what have you over the years that I know my body does feel better when I am consuming animal products moderately. Even though I have a week left, I am tempted to see how an omelette would make me feel.
hm. . .
Last night the Blue Tree girls went out for appropriate cleanse food which happened to be at the Loving Hut which is a franchise vegan restaurant where the menu is up to the owners. I remember seeing them a lot in NYC when I was .
We ordered 3 gluten free dishes and shared them which is always a good idea.
After that we headed out for a drink which is obviously not cleanse friendly but we all only had one and mine was very light. For some reason the food didnt sit well and I was tossing and turning all night only to be awake at 6am on a Sunday morning off. I had a great time with the girls. Its awesome to know that we connect as true friends outside of work. In fact, for the first time I think we barely talked about anything work related!
After today, I will have one week left to go! I am really hoping that I can focus more and that things start kicking into the gear Ive been imagining them too.
As for today, I plan to rest a bit. The house needs some cleaning attention and I feel the need to work on some organizing and other projects I have in the works. I consider the next week to be the calm before a huge (fun) storm of holidays, visitors, parties and madness.
