Blossoming Lotus

Friday, February 05, 2010

With such a horrible morning I didn't have high hopes for today. But then Aubrey and I decided to take a trek out and about and walked all over the mall after FINALLY trying the raw food at Blossoming Lotus.

We got a live wrap and a live falafel wrap both of which come with cashew sour cream on the side. The picture is of my plate after Aubrey and I shared wraps. That way we could both have half of each.

The half on the bottom is the live wrap and it has tahini-cilantro pate, cucumber, sprouts, carrot and an avocado sauce within the leafy wrap. The top half is the live falafel wrap and it has walnut & brazil nut falafel, tahini-cilantro pate, cucumber, red onion and sundried tomato within the leafy wrap.

Aubrey and I agree that the live falafel wrap was the best. I'm not a fan of avocado so I didn't like the sauce on the live wrap. The falafel was GOOD! The only thing I didn't like in it is the tomatoes, although I did try the sundried tomato! But thankfully it was easy to pick out.

Then we decided to try the live fudge I've heard so much about. To be honest, we weren't impressed.

It was ok...but certainly not worth the price. What Aubrey really loved (which you can kinda see in the fudge picture) is the Lavender Lemonade. It was definitely interesting!

It wasn't as filling as I'd like. I was full for about two hours, but then we made sure to get home so I could eat some more! I decided to stick with something I know I love. Surprise, surprise. =P Greek yogurt, a banana and Kashi Go Lean with cinnamon and a tiny bit of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I like my cereal to remain unsoggy!).

Now we're going to go play some Scene It? Although not sure which edition yet.

Who will win? Me!
