Radishes with Vegan Cream Cheese on Toast

Here was today's lunch:

Sliced radishes
Toffutti cream cheese
Toasted French bread
Sliced red bell peppers

Simple, fresh and yum!


After watching the documentary, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, I was totally convinced I needed to buy a juicer. The film goes into great detail about the many benefits of juicing, and I have always considered going on a juice cleanse to flush out my system. After four days of juicing for two meals a day, I am LOVING it. I definitely feel much lighter (and the scale is confirming that as well), and I also feel like I have more energy. So far, my favorite combination is carrot, orange, grapefruit and ginger and kale, spinach, cucumber, and apples.

Yesterday's Lunch: Gyro From The Greek Spot

Yesterday's lunch is brought to you by The Greek Spot. Gyros were one of my disgustingly delicious favorites when I ate meat, so when a friend of mine told me there was a vegan version in D.C., I had to check it out. This was another one of those meals where the vegan version is just as filling but didn't leave me feeling awful. The faux meat is grilled to perfection; I love that they're slightly crunchy on the edges. And the pita is pillow soft. The only downfall is that they don't have a vegan tahini, so I got hummus instead. Overall, this is one of my favorite fast food meals in D.C.
