I started with their "In the Pink"drink, which was apple, pear, beet, lemon and ginger. It was very tasty.
|This was the "un-stirfry": Jicama and parsnip rice topped with teriyaki tossed veggies, mixed seeds, and spicy almonds|
|The Pepper Poppers: Sunflower seed pepper Jack 'cheese' and corn pepper salsa stuffed into fresh sweet peppers,served with sesame mayo and an almond cacao mole.|
|The Mediterranean Pizza: A buckwheat and flax crust topped with a sundried tomato red pepper marinara, marinated baby spinach, black and green olives, mushrooms, and a crumbled cashew 'feta cheese'.|
|The Fiesta Bowl, it's on brown rice but you can't see it. Black bean hummus, fresh salsa, guacamole and walnut 'taco meat', topped with cashew 'sour cream'|
|Our Kale Salad. I don't know what dressing it had, but it was yummy!|
|Yes, white vegan chocolate chips! I am trying really hard not to tear open the bag and eat them all.|
The best part of the day? I signed up for Front Door Organics! They will deliver me a mystery box of local, organic fruits and vegetables every two weeks, right to my door! I am so excited. This will force me to come up with new recipe ideas with the different fruits and veggies they bring me.
All in all, it was a great time at the veg fair, I will definitely go again next year.
I forgot to add that I will be participating in the Vegetarian Association's Vegan Bake Off on October 4th. I think I will enter a raw dessert, but I am not sure yet what I will make. Here's to experimentation!
Great quote from Jillian Michaels that I thought id share: "Why choose failure when success is an option". It really hit home with me!
Hope you're all having a great day!
