I moved!


Today Jennifer, Billy and I went to Green for lunch.  I ordered the Mexicali burger.  I thought it was going to be a veggie burger but it was a mock beef burger.  Ew :P I don't like the flavor of any fake red meat.  It was even pink like dead cow burgers are.  Without skipping a beat my wonderful husband switched lunches with me.  I had his yummy Original G Spicy Po Boy (spicy buffalo mock chicken, lettuce, tomato, and vegan mayo).  He is so very sweet :)

Best six months of my life

Last night Billy and I went to True Food  to celebrate our 6 month anniversary a day early because 12/22 is Billy's mom's Bday.  Tyler gave us some gift cards to use there.


 From their web page:

At True Food Kitchen, we believe simple, fresh, pure ingredients create the most satisfying and memorable dining experiences. While our menu is packed with nutritious, good-for-you vegetables, whole grains, and proteins, we never sacrifice flavor. You may not notice the difference, but it’s there.

We use seasonal, locally grown, organic produce as often as possible. It tastes better and is more nutritious.
We use healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil and expellier pressed canola oil.
We use minimal dairy in our recipes; what we do use is all organic.
Most of our pastas are wheat free and made from brown
and white rice.
Our pizza crusts and pita breads are made in-house with organic flour, spelt and flax seed.
We offer biodynamic, organic and sustainable wine.
We are the only restaurant in the nation to provide Olivello Juice, an extract from sea buckthorn berries. Olivello is full of powerful natural anti-oxidants and other protective phytonutrients. (You can find this ingredient in Andy’s Elixir, Medicine Man, and Orange Olivello Sorbet with Fresh Berries.)
We offer 16 vegetarian, 6 vegan, and 10 gluten-free items on our menu.
We use organic yogurt instead of butter and cream in the sauce for our Butternut Squash Ravioli.
We purify our own bottled water in-house using Natura Water System, which eliminates plastic bottle waste.
Our soba noodle dishes are made from buckwheat noodles that are slow-digesting (low glycemic load) carbs, prepared with little or no fat.
We offer farro, a true whole-grain dish, which is delicious and slow digesting (low glycemic load).
Our house-made natural sodas and fresh juice drinks are sweetened with either agave nectar or erythritol, they are full of health-protective compounds and have less impact on blood sugar.
For those who want a noncaloric sweetener, we offer a natural alternative that will not undermine your health: erythritol.
We use fresh wasabi – a true food – unlike the powdered stuff that contains little or no real wasabi.
We put delicious, organic plum tomatoes from Tuscany on our pizzas.

For our appetizer we got the Caramelized Onion Tart with Smoked Garlic, Black Figs & Gorgonzola. This was so delicious! The creaminess of the cheese and the sweetness of the figs made this so good!

For our entrees I got the Farm Vegetables, Manchego Cheese, Pistachios & Chili Lime Vinaigrette and added tofu. I didn't see any cheese in my salad so I am not too sure about that. This salad was so good! I would def. order it again. Billy got the Butternut Squash Ravioli with Mushrooms, Savoy Cabbage & Pistachios. HOLY MOLY he gave me a few bites of his and I swear I died and went to heaven. This was by far the best ravioli I have EVER had. Ever, ever!! He also got the sweet potato hash.

When we went to pay I realized I forgot the gift cards at home. Oops! Oh well it just gives us an excuse to go back.

Other menu items we want to try:
- Harvest Chopped Salad, Butternut Squash, Apples, Walnuts, Goat Cheese & Balsamic Vinaigrette
- Local Vegetable Crudités with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce
- Gluten Free Spaghetti, Roasted Shrimp, Eggplant & Tuscan Kale*
- Fresh Tomato, Pasilla Chile & Manchego Pizza
- Curry Chicken with Rice Noodles, Cauliflower & Cashews (Billy, but with tofu. I don't like curry :P)
- Teriyaki Tofu, Local Vegetables, Brown Rice, Sesame & Avocado
- Roasted Root Vegetables, Farro & Celery Root Purée
- Andy’s Favorite “TLT” Tempeh, Lettuce & Tomato on Whole Seed Bread 9

My steroids make me hyper!!!!  Super duper hyper!!!

I did some Christmas shopping this morning.  At the first store the cashier asked if I was done with my shopping.  I told him this was actually my first day shopping.  I went to a couple stores and then came home because I was starving.  Like eat my arm off starving.  Another side effect of the steroids is increased appetite.  Luckily I only have a few more days of taking them.  For lunch I had a garden burger, broccoli, and vanilla yogurt.

I took my doses this morning and another at lunch.  When Billy walked in the door I was like, "LETS GO TO THE STORE AND BUY SOMETHING FOR THE HOUSE!!!!! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)"

Billy said, "Ok."

I said, "Now! " and got my purse and bolted out the door!  Zoom!  Woosh!!

We didn't find anything but I got to channel my nervous energy by walking around the store a million times.

Then I was starving (story of myu life) and had a granola bar and some more broccoli.

I wish I could work out because I could run 123235647655635423342 miles!  Seriously! 

Unfortunately the steroids basically make me have 0% of an immune system.  I decided having three open wounds be saturated in sweat and trapped under my cast would not be good.  The last thing I need is for them to get infected.  I also supposed to avoid people who are sick because I'd get really sick.  

Tonight we are celebrating our 6 month wedding anniversary (a day early because tomorrow is Barbara's Bday by going on a date <3>
