A Weekend In NYC

Another fabulous weekend spent in NYC! What can I say? I just can't get enough!
Philip and I travelled into the city on Saturday and met up with friend's Dhrumil and Ben. We enjoyed dinner at One Lucky Duck that evening.

I had a custom Salad of mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, macadamia red pepper cheese, dulse, and caesar dressing. It was super delish!

Philip had an Asian Salad...

Ben had the chocolate mint ice cream sundae for dinner (I love the idea of dessert for dinner!)

Ben had a Mallomar too! Yumm.... i chose a half pint of oreo cookie ice cream for my dessert.

We took a trip to Quintessence for lunch on Sunday. I had the mango pudding parfait, layered with bananas and strawberries... it was mediocre - i didn't eat the berries, as they tasted like cardboard. 
After a fun afternoon of perusing the streets of NYC, we ended back at Dhrumil's for dinner, and then Ben and I jumped into the kitchen for a choccie making session... which turned into chocolate painting!
We added yummy things like coconut, cashews, goji berries, raisins, and cacao nibs into the chocolate - I always like some crunchy and chewy in my chocolate. What are your favourite chocolate add-ins? 
Golden pot of chocolate... Mmmm!
Have a great week!

    Mmm, I'm craving chocolate today, it looks so good! It's a very bad sign for berries to taste like card board. I'd have been thoroughly disappointed.

    Hi Heather, thanks to your ebook I began learning about raw chocolate and today I got the awesome treat of sharing raw white chocolate coconut almond fudge with my Mom. She loved it!!! I read your book and then starting experimenting and the fudge recipe I made up myself:) I just ordered my first gnosis bar yesterday too, can't wait for that to arrive! I think I am meant to check out NYC soon too, I have a friend that works at Juillard and after reading all about the awsome raw food hotspots...I got to get me bumm there!! Have fun!
