We went out for breakfast a couple days ago at Garden Cafe, and I think this was all they had on the menu I could get. I was fine with it though, because I like oatmeal in the morning. This oatmeal was pretty plain. It came with raisins and brown sugar on the side with a banana. My favorite part of it was the pan it was served in. *Just a reminder, it's always good to ask your server if the oatmeal is made with milk or water. Most places make it with water, but some use milk.*
I have a bunch of lemons that I haven't been using and don't want to go to waste so I had a little lemon water. I zest the lemon and squeezed the juice out into my water. Lots of vitamin C.
My husband and brother wanted pizza the other day, so we stopped at Papa Murphey's by our house. According to Yelp, the crust and tomato sauce here is vegan. I got the medium pizza with tomato sauce, zucchini, artichoke and garlic. It was really good! The guy who was making the pizza was so confused. He was like, "Sooooooo, no meat right? And no cheese either?" Yeeeeeees, that is what I ordered :) So he started making the pizza, and my husband has designated himself as the inspector of my food to make sure they get it right, because I am always too nice about it if they make it wrong. Lucky for me, he was watching them well this time. The worker making the pizza, made it WITH cheese. Go figure. Fudge, my husband, kindly told them, "Excuse me, but she doesn't want cheese." The guy remade the pizza correctly and we were on our merry way.
You guys know that I love my plants! I have missed having plants and fresh veggies and herbs since moving here. Since it is winter here I have not been able to start a garden yet. I was able to get this parsley to grow fairly well inside my house near my kitchen window though!
Here is my basil. It is slowly making its way upward.
Last night, my husband surprised me with taking me to Omahas ONLY all vegan restaurant! It was about 7 pm by the time we got there, so I apologize for the quality of some of the pictures. This place is called Daily Grub. They have sopes, soups, sandwiches, sweets and drinks!
They have very simple decor, but I really liked this place.
I decided to get the Banh Mi which was a Vietnamese sub sandwich on baguette filled with daikon, carrot, cucumber, mint, cilantro, slices of marinated tofu and ancho cashew cream spread. I meant to ask for no tofu, but my husband wanted to get home and asked for me to get it to go, so I was kind of in a rush. He told me to get two sandwiches so I could try out two things here so I also go the Hummus Sandwich. This sandwich had hummus, cucumber, romaine and roasted red pepper on toasted baguette with salad or chips.
I ate this one last night. This is the Banh Mi. It was so so good! I love daikon! Thanks babe!
PS- Today is day 1 of going "poo free". I have tried it once before in Hawaii and my hair got so greasy that I had to quite. I am giving it one more try in this climate here. We'll see...
