While the last week of my life brought a whole new meaning to the phrase Spring Fever I seem to have finally made it through. Hooray!
As I was recovering, I received some lovely emails wishing me well (you’re all so sweet!) as well as a few asking me to post about my nutrition choices while recovering from an illness. I’m not sure if I follow any hard fast rules, I usually just give myself what I crave. This week that meant a lot of green smoothies, soups (lentil, butternut squash, tomato, etc.) and Ezekiel Toast Sandwiches with either almond butter, banana and honey or avocado and egg. I definitely favour starchy vegetables like carrots and potatoes and I can’t seem to get enough of oranges and kiwis (which also happen to be extremely high in Vitamin C).
Here’s a little cheat sheet:
In celebration of feeling a zillion times better, I am (finally) sharing some lovely shots from last weekend’s road trip…Broken down by category of things I love.
1) COFFEE. Bridgehead. Mandatory in Ottawa.
2) VEGAN EATS. 3 Course Lunch @ Zen Kitchen. I’m obsessed.
Butternut Squash Soup with Pepitas
Shopping BROWSING JEWELLERY.
5) DANCE PARTY!
Primping ensued… (We kept it real classy with beer cups….)
I don’t know why but something about this trip got me excited about summer and more summertime road trips…Look out Montreal ;)
