On Sunday I was able to sneak away from Princeton (thanks, Dean!) for a short while to hang out with some pretty amazing people. Danielle and Jess planned a Toronto blogger meet-up and I was cordially invited. The plan was to meet for a run/hike but with rain in the forecast our plans quickly changed to lunch instead. No complaints here!
I had met Jess and Krysten before at another blogger meet-up but it was my first time meeting Danielle and Gemma (one of our blog readers! – how cool is that??). We went to Fresh (what a surprise) for vegan food and it did not disappoint. Everyone had been to Fresh before so we all knew that we were in for some good food. We talked about dogs and fitness. What more could I ask for? These four ladies are perfect for me! I had a lot of fun with them and hope to hang out with them again soon.
I also found a few new things over the last couple of days that I wanted to share with you:
I found mahi mahi burgers at Whole foods that I had the urge to try for some strange reason. I don’t usually eat fish (I’ve never liked it) but I remember a conversation I had once with Meg, who assured me that Mahi Mahi does not have a very “fishy” taste. She was right! I actually really like the burgers. They are all-natural, high and protein, and delicious! Dean and I had them for dinner on top of a bed of fresh spinach and we added some spicy mango salsa that made it perfect.
I also picked up Ezekiel english muffins from Whole Foods. I have never seen them in the cinnamon raisin before and they are so so good! I had one for breakfast this morning with coconut butter.
That jar with all the foreign writing on it is something special. Remember that post where I asked about that cookie butter that all you lucky Americans can find at Trader Joe’s? Well Jackie commented on it, saying that there was a cookie butter at McEwan’s here in Toronto that was even better that the one at TJ’s (she has tried both) so I went and got some and oh my word. What a treat!! Thanks for the recommendation, Jackie!
Have you tried mahi mahi? What do you think of it?
Do you shop at Whole Foods? What is one thing that you always buy from there?
