Weekends can be tricky. Food that is easy to regulate during Monday – Friday can get all messed up. However, this weekend, I stuck to my guns. It was a mellow weekend–not much going out other than a few meals and a wedding reception full of ice cream. :) So, here is the run down.
Breakfast: 1 string cheese, celery with cheddar cheese spread
Lunch: leftover chili (even better the second day!)
Dinner: We tried a new place! Omar’s Rawtopia! I have heard from a few people that this place is great–but have never checked it out. We decided that this would be a perfect place to try while carbs and sugar are out of the question. And, it was delicious. Omar’s has a great philosophy about living food increasing the amount of nutrition one can get from eating raw. Click HERE to read more about their story.
We ordered Seaweed a Noodles for an appetizer ($8), which had awesome flavor. Seaweed marinated with nama shoyu and ginger served on
zucchini noodles, topped with avocado, tomatoes, celery,
red bell peppers, cucumbers, and onion.
For our meals: Raw Pasta ($14)–Tomato sauce, basil garlic pesto, and alfredo nut sauce mixed in with zucchini noodles, tomatoes, red bell peppers, onions, olives, topped with avocados, our famous seed/nut cheese. THIS WAS SO GOOD! The sauce was rich and it was very filling. Tabouli Salad ($12)–A mix of parsley, tomatoes, red onions, scallions, hemp seeds, and mint. Marinated in
olive oil, lemon juice, and Celtic sea salt. Served with cabbage, lettuce, or a bed of greens, topped with avocados.
Omar’s was great. The pricing is a little high, but for the preparation and high quality ingredients, it is worth it. Also, enjoy their fresh juices! I couldn’t just yet due to the fruit, but can’t wait to go back and try some.

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs with fat free cheese
Lunch: Delicious smoked tofu (grilled with some worchestire sauce and sea salt) and cauliflower with cheese sauce.
Dinner: Fiddler’s Elbow Black and Bleu Salad with half the dressing served. The steak was delicious! And, skipped all the ice cream at the wedding reception. :)
Breakfast: Celery with cheddar cheese spread
Lunch: Homemade stuffed mushrooms (mushrooms stuffed with low-fat sausage, fat-free cream cheese, and some fresh garlic).
Dinner: making taco salads! :)
And, weighed myself today, 6 days in, and have lost 5 lbs! No carbs and no sugar works. Looking forward to adding some fruit back in though…
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
