This weekend has seemed like an eating and socialization orgy. What a nice break ! Friday night was date night with my husband, Scott. It was supposed to be an evening out with out of town friends, Tonya and Cody of http://www.JourneyofHealth.net, but they were delayed in their travel plans, so Scott and I took the opportunity to have an evening out anyway.
We went for dinner at Daily Juice Cafe and had a delicious meal. Scott had Caesar salad and a coconut barbecue wrap and I had an enchilada and a not egg salad wrap. We each had a green smoothie, too. The food was delicious.
When Tonya and Cody arrived on Saturday afternoon, I took them to Borboletas Living Gourmet for lunch. The food was delicious and they were thoroughly impressed, since they have no living foods restaurants in Calgary. Tonya and Cody's 8 month old Daughter Abby enjoyed the food as much as we did, and Grandma Jean was excited that Borboleta's served coffee and chocolate pie.
Since Tonya was on day 62 of a 92 day juice cleanse, we went to Daily Juice Barton Springs afterwards for a green juice then we went to check out a new store called Natural Grocers. There we stocked up on produce at amazing prices. What an exciting find.
We topped off the day with a living and raw foods potluck at my home. We had a huge turnout…in the neighborhood of 70 people. It's exciting that so many people are discovering Living Foods and desiring to learn more.
The weekend was topped off with another trip to Daily Juice Cafe with Tonya and Cody, where we met our friends the Osborne's. Mom Karen and daughter Lauren were celebrating their birthdays and we had another amazing meal.
Below are some photos of our food.
