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”
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!
