Yesterday afternoon I got dolled up a bit. Rockin’ the scarf.
And feeling pretty smug about it, apparently. 😉
I headed out to the official grand opening of The Yoga Room! I love the slogan, “Yoga for Every Body.”
There were delicious vegetarian Indian appetizers, chutneys, and chai tea from a local Indian restaurant, Chola, available for snacking.
“Spicy donuts.” 🙂
Teardrop-shaped cheese-filled something or other.
And some crazygood cauliflower (that was not super spicy despite it’s intense bright red color!)
A lovely fruit bowl.
As much as I wanted to eat my weight in this stuff, I only had a small plate because I had to save room for Alex and I’s subsequent anniversary date!
There were also some amazing locally made, organic, dairy-free, agave-sweetened chocolates from Eclectic Fine Chocolates.
They were each beautifully crafted with unique flavor pairings.
I sampled the sweet curry, hot chili pepper, and sweet sea salt, all of which were simply divine. The sweet curry was probably my favorite!
I had fun getting introduced around as the Beginners Series Coordinator (a fancy way of saying I manage the beginners email account in exchange for one class a week), and despite being the coldest night of our winter so far, the turnout was excellent. Congratulations, Zelinda!
Alex and I then went to Ka-Prow, where I didn’t take photographs because it was our anniversary dinner and I didn’t feel like it, but he ate some cheese-filled egg rolls and the macadamia steak, while I had a miso soup and soft-shelled crab with onions, peppers, and brown rice. We had a lovely time!
This morning I was feeling a little bloaty and was craving a green smoothie like nobody’s business.
I kept it pretty simple.
I also added a big spoonful of nutritional yeast while it was blending away for a protein boost. Pretty good actually!
The ever-present and all-knowing Lucy in the corner, as usual. 🙂
Tomorrow I have two awesome kale recipes that I can’t wait to share with you. Have a happy Wednesday!
