I had another wonderful morning of yoga training at Thrive/Essencia! Here is a picture of the studio!
As for my vegan challenge, things are still going great! I ran into a bit of a bump tonight for dinner, though because we decided to go to Mariano's. For those of you who don't know, Marioano's is a wonderful store that just opened up this past fall by our house. It is full of great produce and has a big dining area full of soups, sandwiches, and of course a beautiful salad bar. Since I adore soup, I thought I'd check out what they had to offer. Well, their vegetarian selection was quite impressive: chili, minestrone, tomato basil, garden vegetable, and even a butternut squash soup! Well, as you can imagine, I was super excited...until I read the ingredients...all of them had milk! What a bummer; but on the bright side, I had a beautiful salad filled with kale, spinach, peppers, mushrooms, olives, beets, and broccoli. Delicious! I just wish more places were vegan-friendly...
Well, I am already about a week into this challenge and I feel great. I truly think that I am getting great support through yoga and my family (and my readers of course!!) So, I leave you with the question of the day:
Do you know any good vegan Thanksgiving recipes for desert? I am thinking something other than pie/cookies/etc. A little more non-traditional, if you will?
