Sorry I have been absent a few days. I had to take a little blogging break. Unfortunately, my perfectionist (read: anal retentive) tendencies makes it difficult for me to just sit down, whip up an entry and post. I have to go over everything with a fine-tooth comb at least a million times ... so I am going to take this blog in a new direction ... more of a picture blog. Plus or minus some quips and blurbs here and there. I will post about once a week.
This past Saturday we went to the LA Times Festival of Books with some friends to hear Alicia Silverstone (my vegan guru) speak about her book, The Kind Diet. I was so excited to see her in person ... her book has literally changed my life!
Me & my AAH at the book festival.
Alicia Silverstone, my vegan guru. She's super cute!
Afterwards we had an early dinner at Native Foods in Westwood. Um ... yum! I am sold on tempeh ... can't wait to find a recipe and make some at home.

What I've been eating the last few days ...
First attempt at a Macro-B breakfast: miso soup w/ quinoa, arame & pumpkin seeds.
Artichokes with Quinoa.
Banana Oat Pancakes w/ strawberries, blackberries, Earth Balance butter, flax oil & maple syrup.
Watercress Hummus Wrap. Substitute watercress for red peppers in recipe.
And just for fun ...
