There are definitely some perks to working in Kansas so often.
Friendly joggers. (who actually smile and wave at me!)
Amber and I have been trying to coordinate a meet-up for some time now, so I was excited that we finally worked it into our busy schedules!
We met up at La Bodega, a lovely restaurant featuring drinks and small plates:
We each enjoyed a couple glasses of wine, a small plate (a dip of pureed tomato and goat cheese for me!) and lots of great conversation! Among the topics we discussed were our attempts at P90X (Amber just finished her 90 days!), raw chef and nutrition schools, and the trials and tribulations of blogging. 😉
And, of course, we talked about food!! One of the things I love about Amber is her flexible (almost) vegan philosophy. While I absolutely admire people who are committed to living a fully vegan or raw food lifestyle, I’ve personally found that a flexible approach toward food and diet works well for me. It’s nice to meet someone who feels the same way!
It’s also nice to meet someone who happens to be an amazing raw chef:
P.S. I am always willing to be a taste-tester, Amber!!
Hope you’re all having a great week so far!!
