Good morning! I hope your weekend is off to a GREAT start. I’m going to make this as quick as possible, because Ari and I are off to Woodstock for the day! We’ll be spending the night, and coming back tomorrow. I’m so excited! My family and I used to go to Woodstock every fall, but I haven’t been able to go since I started college. It brings back such happy memories, and I’m really looking forward to showing Ari all of my favorite spots! We’re so lucky to be able to make such a wonderful, last-minute trip.
Yesterday I had my new favorite breakfast: fruit (1/2 mango and 1 peach) with raw almond milk and cereal (Puffins).
I’d been planning on going to a 12:00 Vinyasa Flow class, but I overslept a wee bit. By the time I got there (5 minutes before class began) the room was packed! I should have known that all of the East Village would be trying to cram in one last yoga practice before Labor Day weekend. I didn’t let that ruin my day, though, so I did 20 easy minutes on the bike while I read my book, abs, and some strength training.
I ate lunch in the park: an apple and my new favorite sandwich.
Hummus, mustard, sprouts, arugula, and a TJ’s Marsala burger on Ezekiel. Mmm!
There was mail that needed to be picked up at my parents’ house, so I headed up there. This was, to be honest, just an excuse to check out the new Whole Foods store!
The escalators have a special lane for carts, just like at Costco!
I ground my own organic peanut butter…
Admired the raw goodies…
Visited the sample station…
I had a slice of whole wheat bread with Rao’s marinara sauce. Mmm!
I got dinner for later at the salad bar:
- baked tofu
- raw squash
- grape leaves
- lemon-scented tempeh
- mac & cheese
- saag paneer
I picked up some bee pollen…
… so I could channel my beautiful raw girl. Frozen blubes & pollen rock!
I got my hands dirty in the kitchen…
Chopped a lot of dark chocolate…
… and made gluten-free, vegan double chocolate mocha biscotti. I tweaked the recipe a little bit and added hazelnuts!
I bagged them up and got them ready for mailing.
But a girl’s gotta have her own dessert, too! I had a small biscotti butt with raspberries and blueberries.
A day well spent, if I do say so myself. Have a fantastic weekend! I’m leaving my computer at home so I can stay in the moment. See ya later!
