berry protein smoothie: 1 cup milk, splash of yogurt, 1 cup frozen berries, lots of spinach, agave nectar, and protein powder.
Special K cereal on top. It looks like I piled on the toppings but it was more like a few tablespoons. I'm trying to keep my smoothies less calorific because I realized I was overdoing it!
I got my hair did!! :-) I sorta feel like a college student going on spring break but what the hell! I dig it.
I stopped by Pret a Manger to get a Superfood salad-- So hungry!!
I love everything in this salad plus its super filling!

  •  packed cup of spinach in the food processor
176 degree Celcius for 17 minutes.

T brought me a lovely snack from Kondilor & Cook.
Raspberry and dark chocolate tart. Mmmm!!

Our guests arrived so we went the Star of Kings for dinner/drinks. We literally had to walk less than a minute to get there. Loves it!
he he he...
Soutzouki beef & mutton sausage, roasted peppers, tomato ragu & feta cheese. The meat on the pizza gave it a mild spicy kick to it. This was probably my favorite of the two.
Crayfish and avocado salad
Garlic sautéed chestnut mushrooms, w/ wilted baby pousse & ricotta. The pizza was pretty bland even though the ingredients on it were pretty tasty.
The pizzas were alright. The crust was a lot crispier and tasted more like bread than pizza dough. It was interesting to say the least. Not sure if I'll order the pizza again.

Agenda: korean, real housewives of OC reunion :-), salsa lesson, subbing for a late Zumba class tonight at 8:30!! Sweet deal.
