My perfect ‘lunch-on-the-go’ = Raw – Kale Mango Pepitas Seed Tacos

Raw - Kale Mango Pepitas Seed Tacos

 This past month I’ve been concentrating much more on finding unprocessed foods to take on my workday.  It’s challenging to say the least being in a car, sometimes a hot car, all day and trying to eat a healthy fresh meal that will keep me going as well as satisfy my taste buds.  I’ve had a lot of success with homemade bars and balls.  A new favorite is a Chocolate Peanut Protein ball.    They’re so quick and inexpensive…and tasty.  This week, I discovered what will seem like much to simple a meal to share in a post to most.  A kale leaf wrap that I fill with fresh mango, pepitas seeds, a little Justin’s Almond butter (yum) and a couple dates.  This one packs well if nothing else.  And the flavor combination was so delicious I just had to mention my find.

 Speaking of finding, on Tuesday I found myself and about 40 other fans of Choosing Raw at a juice bar in D. C. celebrating Gena Hamshaw’s new book, “Choosing Raw, making raw foods part of the way you eat”

Choosing Raw by Gena Hamshaw

Gena wrote up a fabulous post about the whole book launching party and I’ll refer you to her for the scoop.  It was a fun night even if I was totally out of my element in the city by myself at night, but I was so proud of Gena and her book, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.  She’s got a special man in her life now that we all got a look at too.  She beams from ear to ear whenever she talks about him which is so refreshing.  So happy for her success and  her new adventure being an author and moving back up to N. Y. C.  I was lucky to have been invited to her launch now that she’s leaving D. C.  She’ll be missed here but we wish her all the luck and happiness she can handle up north ♥

 Try these kale tacos. I found I wanted a couple more when I was done eating what I had so bring enough to make plenty.  They’re delicious. 

Have a great week!

    Those tacos sound so easy, so delicious and so healthy. Pretty much perfect. I know I’m a weirdo, but I’m not a big date fan on their own, but I could just add more almond butter!

      Positive that more almond butter would be perfectly fine Brandi. I LOVE that Justin’s brand that has maple syrup to sweeten it. You probably make your own though. Do you add sweetener to your’s?

    Oh my god, lady!!!! I didn’t even know you were there–I figured you hadn’t been able to make it after all. Or did we shake hands and I didn’t put two and two together that it was you?! I’m feeling terribly embarrassed, but also so deeply grateful that you were there. Thank you, Angela–and for being you, as well. You are such a bright light and I’m happy to have gotten to know you. <3

      I was there and so awkward I didn’t introduce myself but you signed my book and gave me a hug, although a sweaty one (sorry but I about died from the heat that day)
      So sorry you’re leaving the city now that we’ve met but I can’t wait to see and read the things you’ve got coming up for yourself (and Steve 😉 )
      I knew you needed time with old friends and family there so sorry for being uncomfortably shy but I’m glad you had time to talk to them.
      You’re one special person and it was so much fun doing the review and being at the party.
      Enjoy Massachusetts while you can BTW. We’re back to the DC humidity again Argghhh
      Thx Gena.

    Great fun attending a juice party and love these tacos. Might make them a bit closer to summer though, at the moment soup is my main food de jour 😉
