Fun In Vancouver Land
You know I love to travel!!! I just got back from the most fabulous trip to Vancouver, British Columbia. I went to visit friends and family, but most importantly, discover any potential for moving there this Fall...
One afternoon, lunch with a long time friend (since we were 7!!!) turned into making plans for me to make raw dinner for her and her husband that evening. AH! How exciting - I find it hard to stay out of the kitchen while I'm on vacation - I tell ya, I always find a way in! 🙂 After a trip to Whole Foods (one of the few in Canada) I had fun showing them how to make almond ginger nori rolls, which we had with salad, and for dessert, Strawberry Chocolate Parfaits: Puddings layered with fresh strawberries - simple, yet delish and I think something like this is good for anyone who is new to raw recipes.
To boot, the cherry blossoms were in full bloom! Was I fortunate or what? I think they're absolutely beautiful!
Netty brought me to a restaurant I've been wanting to check out for a while - Radha Eatery, opened by the Yasodhara Ashram near Nelson, features a vegan restaurant with a seasonal menu, yoga studio, and food classes. I have been going to the Ashram with my mom since I was a little girl, and was there while plans for this restaurant were being made, about seven years ago. We skipped the main course and split this raw chocolate mousse pie.
Ah, such great times...too bad it had to come to an end....BUT, I will be returning to the coast in the September to live and work! Yipee, I am so excited!
