Double the Karma

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in almost a week.  I’m disappointed, but I honestly just haven’t had anything to post about.  My raw leftovers left me until yesterday, and the one dinner I did make, I wasn’t impressed with.  

It is time to start a new week of food though.  I am faced with a bit of a challenge this week because I have eaten my local store out of their GoRaw bar stock, so I will have to start packing some kind of healthy lunch-ish meal.

Anyway, I have until Tuesday to worry about that.  Right now, I have today’s food to worry about.  Wait, worry?  No need to be worrying about food.  I had my last teaching certification exam this morning, which meant that I missed yoga (sad), but I got to go to the vegan cafe that is near the test location!  I’ve posted about Karma Road before, in New Paltz, NY, its a cool little place.  

You always get a soup sample when you come in, and today was Sweet Potato Carrot.  It was really good.  What I ended up getting was the Baked Tofu Sandwich.  

Tofu, pesto, roasted red peppes, lettuce, and nayonaise

I can’t resist picking up some dessert when I’m visiting a vegan establishment, and as much as I was tempted to have the “Oh My God” chocolate cake again, I went for the Brown Rice Crispy Treat.  

No Picture Because I ATE IT too fast.

Puffed brown rice, brown rice syrup, vegan chocolate chips, and peanuts.  

Both were excellent.  I wish I lived closer to this place because they have an awesome deli selection; homemade veggie burgers, beans, salads, tofu, etc.  There was a “curry of the day” that looked really good, but I was looking for something more portable.  

Additionally, I want to thank the very lovely Paulina for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger award.  If you haven’t been to Paulina’s blog, go check it out!  She has recently started herself on a very high raw vegan diet, and its so great to see the stuff she comes up with, as well as her recent experience with traveling raw.  

I think I am supposed to tell you seven things that I love.  I will keep is short and sweet.

1.  Sleep
2.  Gym
3.  Music
4.  Zoe 
5.  Sleep
6.  Family
7.  Carob covered raisins

That being said, it is time for sleep.  Somehow, I end up going to bed even earlier on the weekends.  What can I say, I like my sleep!

  2. Oh my gosh - I'm dying over all that pesto in your tofu sammie. Yum!
