Saturday. Restful sigh. As I plan my day (a little Buddhist action in the morning, a town hall meeting with my local state representative, and lots of writing) I thought I would share some of my eats and activities for the week.

Monday I started with some delicious drinks.

Purple Smoothie and tricolor juice on JL goes Vegan

Smoothie: almond milk, uncooked rolled oats, frozen cherries, frozen banana, hemp seeds and coconut water.
Juice: green apples, carrots, carrot tops, bok choy, an orange and ginger root.

I donned a new t-shirt (via Vegan Cuts).

I'm Good Fat

And attended my first (PPART) Pikes Peak Animal Rights Team meeting.  I got an assignment and has something to do with a goat. More on that in another post!

Tuesday I started with another smoothie.

Then I went to work. Wait, went to work? Don’t I work from home?  Yes and no. I recently began to face some of the challenges of working from home and being a writer, coach, non-profit and education consultant, and recipe developer. It can get a little challenging to focus in my home office. So I became a member of Epicentral Coworking -

Epicentral Coworking

an awesome space where I work in a big room with other freelancers and small business owners. Or I duck into the “quiet room” when it’s writing time. Or I station myself in the “phone booth” for conference calls with clients.  Epicentral has ample conference rooms space and it’s where I’ll be holding my March vegan lifestyle class. Speaking of that, the Colorado Springs Independent listed my class in Friday Food Finds yesterday: Vegans, veggies and brews How cool is that?

The coworking space is conveniently located downtown, doors down from several vegan friendly restaurants, including Poor Richard’s, where I grabbed this vegan bowl to go for lunch. [click to continue…]
