Tomorrow I'm going to meet Kris Carr. Well, hopefully. Shayne and I will be attending the Crazy, Sexy Miracles lecture as press and I am crazy excited. She is such a super cool and inspiring woman, ah, it's just beyond me! Anyway, I say this not because I want to tell you all about the shrine I made in her honor (there is no such thing, promise) but because I wanted to share one of the most unexpected takeaways from my brief 21-day crazy, sexy cleanse:
But, alas, such treats are rare for the recently employed me. So, on the majority of those days, I usually just get my green fix with an ensalada. This past Friday I made myself a simple spinach and romaine salad with celery and carrots. It hit the spot, I guess. I cannot tell you how jealous I am of those of you with juicers, and even more so of those ladies and gents who can frequent juiceries daily :).
In the mean time, the health nut and cultural foodie within me meet halfway with meals like this one. My friend and I ventured to Sofia's Wine Bar last Thursday night for fabulous wine and margherita-arugula pizza. The small pie was light, flavorful and crisp but it was the spicy spring green that stole the show. I actually bought a bunch of arugula at the farmer's market because of it. Good, healthy stuff... just enough to balance out the weekend fun.
