I’m not one to waste organic food… ever. So, when I’m done juicing, I make crackers with the leftover pulp, or I stir some into my dog’s food, or I give it to the bunny’s in my neighborhood.
Today I had a high energy, organic, raw vegan food day. It’s been AWESOME and I feel on top of the world. Yowza!
I’m still in New York (and loving it!) with plans to get back to sunny Arizona some time next week. Today, though, we had some sun. Yippee! Here’s a brief recap of vegan foodie heaven, NY style.
We’re still in New York (it’s been almost three weeks) and we’ve extended our trip. I still have many restaurants to try and things to do. This week we have on the itinerary: Bonobos (Raw Vegan), SproutCraft (Raw Vegan with some fermented foods), walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, tons more green juice at Liquiteria, more Pure Food & Wine (ehem… mallomars!), a possible dinner at Rockin’ Raw in Brooklyn, and more visits to my favorite restaurant in the city Blossom (upper west side location).
As most of you know, I usually follow a diet and lifestyle that is HRAV (high raw, all vegan) and always as organic as possible. The rest of the time, I go all raw. But… there are times, like now (traveling in NY), that I’m loving up both the Raw and the Cooked Vegan. I’m a foodie at heart. And, in NY, I’m surrounded by tons of vegan restaurants (some which offer Raw options) as well as a handful of Raw restaurants, and I can’t help but joyfully indulge. I’m like a kid in a candy store out here. I want to try everything! But, even though I’m eating a fair share of cooked organic vegan food, I’m drinking lots of fresh green juice to keep my cells happy and dancing. Again, easy to do in NY because so many places offer it. (Oh, and we’re taking digestive enzymes to help our digestion).
