October 30, 2012 by Leanne Vogel March 29, 2017Wow, what a great weekend I just had, my gosh. Did you have a good weekend? I know, it’s already Tuesday but I feel like it’s Monday so bear with me. It all began on Friday morning when I boarded the train at Montreal Central Station headed for Kitchener, Ontario. It was a long trek, but totally worth it knowing that my blogging friend Angela was on the other end wait for me. Angela and I have been chatting for ages so to finally get the opportunity to hang out in person was a real treat. And let me tell you, she knows how to show a girl a good time! We began our weekend adventures with a visit to The Works on Friday night for burgers and salads. Of course I was the one that indulged in a big, juicy elk burger complete with a basket of sweet potato fries while Angela stayed healthy with a large chicken salad. We were so hungry by the time we were seated that neither of us took photos of our food. Massive foodie fail. We’re both early risers so we decided to head to the Athletic Center in Waterloo for an early morning intense hot yoga session, then a visit to Dana Shortt Gourment for some seriously amazing infused oils and vinegars, The Naked Sprout for lunch (best raw/vegan Caesar salad I’ve ever had in my life), Whole Foods Market for browsing, and Fresh Restaurant for dinner. We were both exhausted come 8pm that night. Sunday was a far more relaxing day filled with blogging, cooking, and chatting. Then on Monday, Angela invited me to her spin class at GoodLife Fitness. Everything was just awesome. Not only did I get to meet a wonderful new friend, I am now inspired to eat more vegetables. For serious, I’ve never seen someone eat as many vegetables as Angela does. She puts my produce consumption to shame. And it’s no surprise that; with Angela’s love for produce, we gravitated toward developing recipes using fresh, local and raw ingredients during our time together. First up in our list of kitchen yummies was this edamame pate that we later used to stuff into grain-free California rolls. Oh this recipe’s a keeper!
