Menu Plan Monday (vegetarian/vegan/macrobiotic)

This morning I went to the farmers’ market and snagged some pictures.  It was raining, so these don’t portray the usual vibrance… but I think you get the idea.  I love my farmers’ market.  (This is the Mountain View Farmers’ Market, by the way.)

At the entrance were some flowers

I’ve pretty much given up on dairy.  It makes my stomach churn and I broke out for the first time in 3 weeks after having yogurt yesterday.  Oh, well.  I can find lots of things without it!  And they are all delicious.

Friday eats, and an award :)

Wanted to share a few plates and activities from my day with you all.

I started off this morning with breakfastwhipped banana oat bran. I also had miso soup. This is a pretty macrobiotic breakfast – especially the soup!

I did do some Morning Yoga from YogaDownload.com, which was nice. I am never disappointed by their podcasts.

In other news, the sweet Kailey at Clean Veggie Eats gave ma a Kreativ Blogger award.

Check out her blog – she is an incredibly passionate and intelligent young lady and I’m proud that she passed this award on to me!

Bobby and I had the nicest do-nothing night.  We just chilled, ate dinner late, went to Whole Foods, and came back to our clean apartment.  Our friend came over and now we’re just hanging out.  Tomorrow Bobby is going to San Francisco to volunteer at a comic convention (nerd!), which I don’t do… so I’m on my own.  I’m thinking a yoga class, painting my nails, napping, reading, and making yums.  Then we’re going out to eat when he gets back from the city.  What are your Saturday plans?
