Juicing veggies and fruits for life!

I made a late night trip to Sprout’s Farmer’s Market to pick up some leafy greens and fruits to juice.  I love fresh vegetable and fruit juices.  They are so healthy for you.

Trip to Northeast Los Angeles for Dinner

I decided to get out of the house today and take a drive to Highland Park (East LA) to try out some vegan tacos.  The family owned business, Plant Food For People (PFFP), has created an awesome  Vegan “carnita” taco made from jack fruit. Each taco can be ordered with 2 toppings.  I chose tomatillo salsa and nela cole slaw on one and Chipotle mayo and pico de gallo on the other.  Superb!  The texture and taste of the jack fruit is identical to meat.  I’m definitely going back.  They also made homemade pinto beans!  The price is excellent $2.00 per taco.  What a deal!Image

What a deal!!!!!!

Excellent Menu!

Something smells delicious!

Im up this morning looking at recipes in the “Fork Over Knives” book.  I watched the movie on Netflix this morn and I’m convinced that the vegetarian lifestyle is a right move for me.  I selected the Cinnamon and Raisin Rolled Oats Recipe.  I adapted it a little because I’m so used to the way Mom made oatmeal when I was a lil girl.
