Breakfast - I got on the road pretty quickly and had remembered to bring an apple with me, but had forgotten that I'd brought it, so it is still in my bag. I went to a coffee shop to meet Nicoal and another friend, Erin, and they had no raw food so I got a yogurt with granola and fruit and ate about half of it. And an americano. Yum.
Nicoal and I watched Anne of Green Gables and had some raw trail mix from Trader Joe's, as well as some dried mango and dried hibiscus flowers, which we saw on the shelf at TJ's and had to try. (They're good, but not good enough for me to buy them without the novelty of them being flowers.) We also had to try some red currant wine, which is a big scene in Anne, but it was so sweet we couldn't drink more than a few sips. Too bad.
Lunch was more pad thai; we used up the sauce Cory made for Friday's dinner.
And then dinner. Ohhh, dinner.
We went to Blossoming Lotus in north Portland. They are (as far as I know) the only raw restaurant in Portland. About half of their menu is raw; and it's entirely vegan. We shared:
* Live Sampler: a taste of each: tahini-cilantro pate, live falafel, live pasta and eden salad, served with savory flax crackers and crudite.
* Live Pizza: hempseed & basil pesto, cashew cheese and marinated vegetable topping on spiced tomato & walnut crust, served with a mixed green salad
And then Nicoal had a raw strawberry cheesecake and I had a raw chocolate tart that I couldn't finish. (That is very odd to say - in the past, I have definitely not been one to leave any dessert on my plate!)
And now we come to day 7! I'm going to be on the road most of the time, so I'm not sure how it will work; I haven't planned anything and I'll be visiting people along the way. But I'm sure it'll work out.
