I was just reading the twin's latest post when I stumbled upon an older post of theirs and this little tid bit really inspired me:
"Don’t go about looking for your reason to live or finding the purpose of your existence.
The only reason to be alive is to enjoy life. And enjoy all that you do in life.
We constantly seem to be searching for why we were placed on this Earth, when the fact is that the fact we are alive is solely that: a mere fact. We were not given a reason for why we are here, we just are. With that, we look for the things, places, people, and experiences that bring joy to our hearts. That joy is what sustains us. That is what we yearn for and when we are aware of ourselves, then we are truly alive. For this reason, we must make the most of the time we have here.
*this is obviously just my opinion and take from it what you wish and leave the rest*
I also must say that that Out Loud by Dispatch is SUCH a good song (in my opinion). I apologize for my lack of ability to find them actually singing it, but I wanted to share!
So, now onto some food. A few weeks ago I went to yoga and then C3 with Mimi. We shared soup and a Panini. Mmmmm!
hummus peppers cukes n sprouts
potato leek soup
strawberry banana smoothie (can you say my favorite?!)
Later in the week Dan and I went to My Thai and of course, again his dish was tastier than mine but it's okay because we're good sharers!
pad see ew
soup of the day
For dessert we went to Flour which was a cold trek in 23 degree weather. They had an adorable quote that I just had to share considering you can always find me in the kitchen:
Look at this! Pickle of the day! Who is really that cool?! ... if only they were totally vegan....
They did have a decent vegan chocolate cake muffin though which sufficed.
Yesterday VegNews came in the mail... needless to say a load of excitement was born.
And last but not least today for dinner I threw together what I like to call a "clean out the fridge stir-fry" This consisted of sprouted grain spaghetti, cherry tomatoes, bok choy, asparagus, zukes, celery, and my homemade pesto. Yay for impromptu meals!
