Jury Duty Salad

I'm on jury duty this week. This puts me within two blocks of lots of downtown Pasadena restaurants. One of my favorites is a little bakery on Colorado called Europane. I have had their beet salad twice already in the past few days. Europane is known for their phenomenal egg salad sandwiches, which are fantastic, but since I'm not egg-ing anymore - beet salad it was. And it was good.

What I Ate Today:

• 2 bananas
• 1 avocado w/ Himalayan pink salt
• Europane beet salad - mixed greens, beets, oranges, walnuts, balsamic vinaigrette
• coffee
• steamed artichoke
• steamed asparagus
• Tuscan kale salad w/ raw almonds, olive oil, and nutritional yeast
• Trader Joe's Yellow cold pressed juice w/ pineapple, yellow bell pepper, apple, cucumbers, lime, mint

Welcome Here, or Welcome Back

Hi Everyone. If you're new here to My Raw Blog, you can expect updates about what I eat, new products I try, and sometimes a video post about it all. I eat primarily raw-vegan, meaning raw fruits and vegetables and nuts and seeds. Every once in awhile I throw in some other good vegan cooked stuff to mix it up. You can also find me at my family humor blog  Thanks for dropping in.

What I ate today:

• Coffee
• Raw cashews
• 1 avocado w/ Himalayan Pink Salt
• 1 cup of raspberries
• 1 warm bowl of leek, fennel, potato soup - made from scratch by my husband. Not raw, but oh so good.
• more coffee
• lots of water w/ lemon
• For dinner I'm at a restaurant called Tender Greens, my go-to there is a cold salad called The Happy Vegan: wheat w/ cranberry, quinoa with cucumber and beets, green hummus, tabbouleh, mixed greens and hazelnuts

Not gonna go into what I ate today, just know I didn't eat anything from the Carl's Junior that has this sign in the window:

WARNING Chemicals known to The State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm may be present in foods or beverages sold here.

And I hope you didn't eat anything from there either.

You guys? I'll share my organic apple with you.
