Hello blissful friends! I'm in New York now after spending time in DC with my close friends and their 2 year old. Fun times! The book tour is going great and it's been such a pleasure to meet so many of you in person! We still have Portland, New Jersey, Philly and more New York events so come out and see me!
If you want to see photos from the tour my friend Kate (Le Chou Sauvage) is posting all the things we've seen, places we've visited and food we've eaten on her Instagram page. She is an amazing photographer so you should follow her on there and check out her website! You can also find photos from the whole trip posted on my Facebook page.
The food is just incredible on the east coast! After my book signing at Roots Market we had dinner at Great Sage. We had an artichoke spinach dip and mac n' cheese that rival all the others I've ever tried. I really wish Great Sage was closer to my house! Of course we had to stop into Sticky Fingers Bakery in DC for some treats. We walked around DC all day in the rain, but it was so much fun!
Everlasting Life Cafe filled our bellies for lunch and it was super delish and the staff was awesome. You would never know by looking at the outside that inside has the most awesome vegan deli and soul food. We had a fried "chicken" sandwich which was made from bean curd strips battered and fried. It was incredible. They also had the best potato salad I've ever had.
More book tour shenanigans coming later this week!
Something really awesome that happened this past weekend was the Better Health Summit hosted by Heather Nauta of Healthy Eating Starts Here. You can watch hours of interviews with experts in the field of nutrion, health, cooking and fitness. I've attached my interview below for you to see, but definitely take some time to watch the other interviews. I enjoyed them and learned a lot!
Sorry I don't have a Meatless Monday recipe for you today. I haven't had a second to cook on this trip.
I'd love to hear from you what cool things you learned from the Better Health Summit!! Tell us in the comments some great take-aways from the interviews! And please share with your friends!
