New restaurant, New Lulu’s and Sunshine!

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!

Happy girl!

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!

    Your new Lulu shorts are super cute!

    I need shorts with pockets, because I still tie my house key to my shoelaces when I run…. I guess it works?
