It’s the weeeekend! It was so nice to wake up without an alarm to a sunny Saturday! You’ve got to appreciate the little things!
Speaking of little things. My favorite pair of Lulu’s got a wee hole in the back of the leg :’( I tweeted about it because I didn’t know how to fix them and @lululemon suggested I bring them in to the store. I popped by today and the super helpful ladies at the store are going to send them out to get fixed! Awesome!!
While I was at Lulu I also wanted to try on some shorts since it’s heating up!
I ended up with these pretty babies, Zoom knee shorts, which are going to be perfect for biking and running!
I love all my lulu’s but these babies have a few things that my other ones don’t, like the zippered pocket in the back and the continuous drawstring (seriously love this!!).
Plus they added a second “hidden” pocket to the waistband, love it, thanks guys! I was also pretty excited when the 8’s fit better than the 10’s, hello single digit land!
I’ll be taking these for a spin (literally) on Monday since my crops (with the mesh behind the knees, perfect for a sweaty spin class) will be MIA for a little bit… and, to be honest, I’m actually wearing them right now, just because they’re cute and I can! lol.
I also picked up a grippy headband that actually stays on my head, yipeee!
I don’t shop a lot but when I do I got all out! Next stop was something I’ve been lusting after for years!!!
The coffee machine recently bit the dust and I have been dying for an espresso machine so I figure this was a great opportunity to get the best of both worlds, a combo esspresso/coffee maker! Unfortch my happiness may be short lived if I can’t find a permanent coffee filter that fits because I can’t justify going back to paper filters, it’s just not good for the earth. Fingers crossed I can find a different one that works!
All that shopping (and walking) made hungry so I popped into Kale, a new vegan restaurant that I’ve been wanting to try for months!!
Kale is a mostly organic, buffet-style restaurant that also serves fresh juice and ORGANIC coffee (with almond milk!!) The buffet-bar is separated into hot and cold and there are a variety of options and style of dishes.
I went for a take-out container so I could take 1/2 home and I was happy to see that the containers were eco-friendly!
I tried lentil shepherds pie, a squash perogie (made with spelt, steamed broc and Kale (when in Rome… when at Kale…), eggplant curry, seaweed rice noodles, and a veggie & spelt (I believe) pasta salad.
Where did that beet come from? I don’t really like them but I figured I could eat one since they’re so good for you!
Mmm, yummy squash p.rogue.
I was really impressed by the quality and taste of the food. Everything tasted very fresh, you could actually taste the flavours of the food instead of oil or salt and I loved everything I tried.
I usually stick to water but I went wild and crazy with a sparkling black cherry bev ;)
For dessert I had a raw banana ball (can you tell I can’t remember what it was called, bad blogger!).
Oh Em Gee. This was amazing! It was coconutty on the inside, had a great banana taste an was not chewy. If you go to Kale you must try this!
I think Kale has become my new go-to place! I’m looking forward to going back and trying more items, there was a lot that I didn’t get to try and and I hear that the food changes daily. I’m also looking forward to trying out the the coffee and juice bar! Yummy yummy in my tummy!
