I think I´m back on the grind! I think my post will be more regular from now on… YAY!
As you probably noticed, I´m a bit more excited then usual. But, trust me – I have a pretty solid reason… Hahahaha.
Ok, now. Seriously. I have something really amazing to share with you guys. It´s not a done deal, we still have tons of things to set up, it´s definetely not a big “YES”… But it´s a “maybe”, and you know that´s enough to excite me :D
The thing is…
I MIGHT GO TO ENGLAND IN JULY!
Yes, for 3-week period, I might go to England! It´s a summer course, to improve my English. Isn´t it EXCITING?!
And yes, you may laugh about the post title now. But isn´t England´s coin the pound? Haha ;)
Anyhow – on to a much more certain field… Food!
Yesterday was really fun. I awoke to a couple of melon slices and a bowl of 1/2 container of non-fat yogurt and 1/2 granola bar:
Then, I had an apple while at school:
And a DELICIOUS quiche+salad combo for lunch at a wonderful restaurant inside PUC´s campus (a well-known brazilian university) called “NaMedida”:
*Heaven in my mouth!*
(Fresh OJ on the side, obvs)
I had lunch with Mom! She went to Chile yesterday (she´s spending a week there – mostly to walk around and have some fun with my stepfather in a mini-vacation), and she said she wanted to say goodbye. Isn´t she the cutiest? :D
Dinner was eaten early – I went out with my grandfather and cousins! It was great – she stopped at a book store, bought books (I chose “Sushi”, by Marian Keys! Is it good?) and then headed to a vegetarian restaurant called “Vegetariano Social Clube” – a place I´ve always wanted to visit. I absolutely LOVED IT, and can´t wait to come back!
I had a zucchini, eggplant and lettuce salad with a side of marinated tempeh. Two words: HOLY YUM!
(Sorry about the bad quality – bad lighting!)
I also had a Passion Juice+Ginger with my meal. So fresh and spicy :D
As I said – a wonderful day.
Today´s been great, too. I had my favourite PB+fruit combo EVER as breakfast:
A nanner at school:
And a wonderful veggie combo for lunch! I met my lovely grandmother for lunch at a vegetarian restaurant called “Rio Vegetariano”. I asked for their “Summer Dish”: a flourless heart-of-palms “casserole” with steamed veggies, a green salad and a blob of “vegan mayo”.
Grandma ordered their brown rice+beans combo with the same pie and veggies I had. Her second dish was a bit camera-shy, but I managed to snap a pic while she had her soup:
We both had fresh unsweetened OJs on the side. They were so refreshing! Lurved it.
After our lunch, grandma decided to take a look at the little “health/organic store”. See all the bottles behind grandms? They´re not wines - they´re concentrated juice bottles. Hahahaha ;)
Anyhow – it was definetely a shopping spree! I simply bought everything I´ve ALWAYS wanted to have at home, but never had a chance to ask Mom. YAY!
All the goodies:
Preserved Sliced Ginger, Tahini, Hummus and Organic Soy Cheese (Tofu-alike)
I can´t believe I finally found this tahini jar! I see homemade hummus in the future… :D
Anyhow - I´m really relaxed right now. Stepfather and Mom are having a BLAST, Lelê´s at school, and I´m done with homework. Life´s good, huh?
Before I go – I appreciate so much all the love and support everyone´s been giving me. I might not answer your lovely comments right away (Jessica, love – I don´t have your e-mail!), but I do read them all and I feel honered to receive such wonderful tips, advices and comments in general.
I might have told you all this before, but…
Hahahaha. Seriously, guys – I love the fact that I found blogworld so soon. I´m a lucky gal ;)
Wish you all a terrific night, and a magnificent week!
