Some yummy meals

On New Years’ Eve Bobby and I took my sister (Julia, age 15, vegan-ish) out to dinner at our favorite restaurant back in Pennington, NJ.  The restaurant is called Edo Sushi.  They have a mix of Japanese and Chinese food and serve the best sushi I’ve ever had outside of Ithaca, NY.  (I’ve never found a better Japanese restaurant than Plum Tree in Collegetown.)

When we go to Edo Sushi for lunch, Bobby loves to get the Salmon Don (just sashimi over rice with some sliced cucumbers and lemon).  I always opt for the Buddhist Delight, which is just mixed veggies and tofu with sauce. The lunch special comes with free soup (we get miso) and rice.

But for dinner we branched out a little.  Bobby started with this egg roll, and also got General Tso’s chicken (it was the best he’s ever had).

Julia and I split two veggie dishes.  We got the Broccoli in a Garlic Sauce and Mixed Vegetables & Tofu.  We got them both steamed with the sauces on the side.  I actually ended up dipping a lot of my veggies in Bobby’s General Tso’s sauce – it was so good.  The garlic sauce came with a pretty chili pepper just swimming around.

After dinner they end the meal by bringing out a complimentary plate of diced pineapple and fortune cookies, both of which I forgot to take a picture of.

I love Asian restaurants because they always have amazing vegetarian and vegan options.  Even when I’m not vegetarian, I usually opt for non-meat options in restaurants just because those meals sound the best to me.  I think Vietnamese restaurants tend to be my favorite, but I also enjoy Korean, Japanese, and Thai.

I also wanted to share my lovely breakfast from today.  I enjoyed this after two 20-minute YogaDownload sessions (Power Vinyasa Flow #3 and Core Yoga #1).  Core Yoga is great and very challenging.

  • 1 large gala apple, diced
  • 1 orange, diced
  • 1 raspberry yogurt (6 oz)
  • 1/2 cup TJ’s high fiber cereal
  • ~1 tablespoon almond butter

It was delicious and very filling.  Getting a smear of almond butter in every bite was the best part.

Have a lovely Saturday!  I’m hoping an Ikea frozen yogurt ($1!!) is in my future…  I got a craving after I saw Heather’s yesterday.

What is your favorite yogurt/soy yogurt/frozen yogurt flavor?  And what do you like to eat it with?

My favorite froyo flavor is tart, topped with berries and mango.  My favorite yogurt flavor is Dannon’s fruit on the bottom apples & cinnamon (a throwback to my childhood).

    YUMOLA! Now I’m craving Chinese food – looks divine!

    I’m boring, and we don’t have “real” froyo around here, so I usually get vanilla without mix ins.

    I really love fruit on top of my frozen yogurt — mango, kiwi, and strawberries are some of my favorites. And if I’m in the mood for something sweeter, chocolate chips are great, especially those chips that are coated in little rainbow jimmies for some extra crunch. Yum!

    Your brekkie looks delish. I love TJ’s High Fiber Twigs! Glad you had a good dinner with your sister. I always forget to ask for my sauce on the side…gotta remember to that from now on in Asian restaurants.

    I love tart flavored frozen yogurt with any kind of berry topping, and I’ve been known to bring cinnamon Puffins from home for a little added crunch. 🙂
    As far as regular yogurt goes, I love plain Greek yogurt. Love love love it – eat it everyday.

    Yum! That restaurant sounds fantastic 🙂 I hope you got that Ikea yogurt! My favorite yogurt used to be from TCBY – the white chocolate mousse twisted with strawberry! Delish. I guess now I’d probably prefer the plain fro yo topped with fruit…or my all-time favorite, rainbow sprinkles!
