For lunch I tried vegan chorizo and I honestly loved it.

For dinner, my husband and I went to the hottest vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Calgary, The Coup. We started on the lounge side called Meet and a met a few new people while we waited for our table.  We had the cashew yam burger, mine was GF.  It was awesome.

Tomorrow we’re off to go skiing.  My husband and daughter are trying snowboarding for the first time.  We’ll see how that goes!  My son and I will stick to our skis this trip.

Morning delight today was 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup frozen mango, 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, 1/2 a grapefruit and half a banana.

Banana Saver

The “banana saver” was a gift for my husband and he could not be more proud of the way this family is beginning to save bananas! LOL

Being so cold today, my husband and kids wanted hot soup.  Tomato soup fit the bill.  I love Jamie Oliver”s cooking because its rustic and healthy. He says put the green stems from the fresh tomatoes in the soup for flavor. No joke! It was delicious.
