Yes, I am here!

Holy Tuesday! I haven’t blogged in 4 days – wow!

I’ve have been pretty distracted and busy; some personal decisions going on right now. But I am well so no need to worry =)

I have had no time to check out my blog roll :ashamed!: but I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

For breakfast I had a wonderful smoothie – banana, almond milk, peaches and strawberries. So gooooood! Summer in a glass! =D

And J decided he would rearrange my cupboard for me. Can you say “Future Chef”?

Back news: I am having my x-ray tomorrow and will meet with the doctor again this week to go over what is happening. Luckily it is finally starting to feel normal again! Thank goodness! I haven’t tried to run but I have been walking. It is pretty sore towards the end of my walk but the pain resides fairly quickly.

VegFest 2010

This past weekend was VegFest 2010 in Seattle. Marc and I attended Saturday and we were both blown away by the size and the variety of the vendors. There were big names like LaraBar, Cascadian Farm, Odwalla, Morning Star, but I loved seeing the locally owned businesses just as much, if not more! We estimated that there were about 150-175 total vendors.

We didn’t make any of the seminars or book signings but we did have a good time sampling products! Here are just a few of the vendors that were there and most of the samples we ate:

It was pretty crowded and we had to push through the crowd to get to the tables.

Mighty O Donut’s are a local vegan and organic donut bakery here in Seattle. I have been wanting to visit their shop for some time and we were so excited to sample their donuts! I will DEFINETLY be making a stop there more often!

I was very pleased to see so many organic produce delivery companies. I currently am not a member of any but I have been looking into the option.

A big shout out and Thank You to Living Harvest for giving me two tickets the the event! Here is Jennifer pouring yummy samples of Tempt Hemp Milk!

We ate A LOT of food (!!) and gathered a bunch of samples and information!

It was a wonderful event and I am looking forward to attend next year, too!

Before we headed to the event, we stopped by Bamboo Garden in Seattle. It is an all vegetarian/vegan Chinese restaurant that I have always wanted to try. Marc has eaten there before and he loved it.

We started off with soup – corn chowder and hot and sour.      DSC05046DSC05049

The corn chowder was amazing! The hot and sour soup was a little too sweet for my liking but it was very fresh tasting.

We shared a combo plate – fried rice, spring roll, sweet and sour “chicken” and some noodle dish. It was very tasty but next time I try this place I will trying something different.

  1. Glad you had a great time at VegFest – so did I! I was actually at the Vegan Proteins/Vega booth a lot of the time with Robert Cheeke, who sells the vegan shorts. I love those too!We Can't Say It's Cheese was my favorite product there, and I also enjoyed Heaven Sent dessert and the strudel.

  12. Teresa says:

    Great pictures Tasha ! Question: When you blend the peaches and strawberrys for your smoothis are you using fresh or frozen fruit. I find every time I use frozen I still have alot of fruit chunks. Can you post some information on smoothies. Yours are always perfect. THANKS

  13. VegFest looks like so much fun! My son does the same thing with the pots and pans, so I started giving him a spoon, spatula, etc. and asking him to help me cook. I'll say stuff like, "Hurry, hurry, stir- the sauce is going to burn!" And he giggles and giggles and stirs like a fury. :PHope the doctor goes well!
