I am pretty bummed out that the rain decided to stop! I LOVE THE RAIN! I probably say that only because it is rare to have rain in LA, and this: 
  • FairCurrently: 84°F Fair 91°F | 64°F is a joke! I mean it is FALL darn it!

So here I am in my skivies (oo la-la) writing a post so I don’t have to turn on the A/C in October!  I am also all sweaty from my lil’ afternoon yoga sesh.  You can find it here I am pretty sure I have seen this Video in the blogosphere before.  I only did 15 min, just to stretch and move, but I sure did break a sweat!

So let me fill ya’ll in on the last couple days:)

As you all know I went to see BOB DYLAN on Tuesday and I have been playing catch up from that night of pure bliss.  Before the concert Sean and I went to M Cafe for dinner!  I have blogged about this place in the past at The Plate Decorator.  It is one of my all time favorite restaurants!!!

I love the atmosphere; clean, warm, friendly, and full of yummy healthy eats!

How great is that?

I was hungry but I always over order here because I never can decide on what to get, the menu is huge, and it changes with the season.

Yes this is heaven...

Yes this is heaven...

This was the best on the menu if you ask me! Mashed chunky Kobucha squash with raisins and quinoa!!!!! It was so creamy and wonderful must try to create this at home.

We both had some sushi.  I had the Shiitake-Avocado Roll: sweet soy-glazed shiitake, avocado, cucumber & toasted sesame.  Sean had the Spicy Tuna Roll: chopped tuna, seven-spiced soy mayo, cucumber & avocado.  I love the variety of dishes they serve.

Sean's fave

Sean's fave

He loves this Hummus & Falafel Wrap: roasted garlic hummus, mixed grain falafel, carrots, radish, cucumber, red onion, sprouts, lettuce, tahini-soy yogurt dressing in a whole wheat lavash.  It comes with your choice of one side, I forced suggested he get the Kale with Spicy Peanut Sauce. Mmmmmm…… I usually get sides and then a salad or sushi and can NEVER finish it all.  So we took what was left in a to go box for after the concert drunk munchies snacks.  Oh yea and we split this, but I ended up just having a few small sips of my half and Sean gladly finished the rest. 

very tasty though

What is with boys and beer???

The concert was AMAZING! I had a Jim Beam and Ginger Ale cocktail or two for squids and giggles, but all in good fun!

The next couple of days were jam-packed with school and work Story of my life….. But here are some of the eats I chowed down on:

Anderson's Vegetarian Pea Soup with homemade Veggie Pulp Flax Crackers

Anderson's Vegetarian Pea Soup with homemade Veggie Pulp Flax Crackers

This is one of my fave soups.  I love Pea soup, Lentil soup, Veggie Chili anything warm and filled with creamy veggies (or beans).  My digestive  “>sytem as of late has been saying NO to beans so I am steering clear for a little while- ya know lots of umm gas…embarassing to live with the one you love and be consumed by flatulence!  The crackers I adapted from Kristin’s recipe this is a really easy and fun recipe to play with.  I don’t have a Dehydrator or a heat lamp like Heabs, but I do have an oven that goes down to 170 degrees, so I make it work!  They take about 4 hours so just watch them, not the best for my gas bill but oh well:)

Yummy! I always DOWN my smoothies and wish there was MORE to drink! I try to “chew” each sip, but they just taste SOOO GOOD! I really love this combo…you may think cilantro in a smoothie? But I urge you to try it! It is sooo refreshing and like a tropical storm in your mouth. I try not to add too much fruit, my skin doesn’t like the sugar, so cilantro really helps to add another dimension without the sugar. 

 I have also tried:

  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Parsley

But I find cilantro to be my fave, most flavor for the amount of herb needed.

 I got this salad from my restaurant and added a few more veggies to the lot.  Here is baby mixed greens, kale, asparagus, tomato, avocado, spinach, and a wonderful homemade Dill Pickle!!!! You can find the recipe here at Meghans blog. This was a crazy easy and FUN way to make your own pickles all natural and no sugar. Bonus.  They are absolutly delish, garlicky and super crunchy!!

 This wonderful invention really hit my radar! I love the idea of not wasting any ANY nut butter, plus it is fun to eat out of. I brought this with my to school and had b-fast in the parking lot on a rainy day.  So sad the rain has gone.

 So enjoy the pics, I know I enjoyed eating everything! Have a lovely weekend! Mine is full of Birthday celebrations, my b-day isn’t until Monday but we are celebrating ALL weekend! Be back with the details soon:)

Love + good eats, Cassandra
