Friday, September 5th

An Amazing Grass Smoothie for breakfast...
Lunch was at The Olive Garden. Their website lists all their allergens, so the Breadsticks were supposedly vegan. My $5 glass of Wine (served with preliminary sip for my approval) was pleasing...
as well as their Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce. They served the Salad without cheese, but I still avoided the croutons.  The Olive Garden team got us in and out with no issues which I was grateful for...
Leftover Gardein Mandarin Orange Chikn for dinner...
Cocomels for dessert...
Where will breakfast be tomorrow? Tune in to find out. Bye for now.

Fancy lunch! I didn't know Olive Garden served wine. Does yr mother imbibe?
Those cocomels look pretty delicious. Never seen em, I don't think.

I haven't been to Olive Garden in the longest time. Was the food actually good? I remember going in college in my pre-vegan days because we'd be able to get a bunch of meals out of one visit :) Looks good!

I need to find those cocomels! They look great. Are they really sticky? I'd be afraid of my teeth coming out!

I guess the raw food helped? I've just been really run down lately so it's hard to tell a huge difference. I'm hoping to catch up on sleep and rest this weekend.

Nice that olive garden has such great labeling information available- i've actually never eaten there, but a glass of wine with lunch is a good thing regardless of where you go.
The gardein looks like it has a great texture there.

I think you will find some scramble for brunching- maybe at randy's?
I am a total lightweight- sensitive to any and all meds, so any sleeping pills knock me down for the count... Which is convenient for flying :)

I appreciate it when restaurants have allergens on their website. I can see that their breadsticks wouldn't have butter in them, it's more of a garlic oil that I recall? I'd eat it! ;)

I almost picked up the orange chik'n from TJ's last night, but I resisted.

Hey Now!!!!

FF, OG was fancy schmancy! My mother is taking meds for her back pain, so only I imbibed. These Cocomels were quite tasty. Not cheap though. Only for when you must have caramel.

Sarah, the Olive Garden food was good. Especially after some of the lousy grub I ingested the past few meals out. Cheese eaters would have quite the feast there. The Cocmels I had last night were super soft. Not like MaryJanes. You ate some beauttiful raw food. I cant comment much on other peoples blogs with this new ipad cuz I keep losing what I type and have to retype it all.

Unknown, Olive Garden was not as bad as you might imagine, however, unless you find yourself stranded in the middle of nowhere one day, I see no reason for you to go. My mother had a Darden gift card, hence the choice of venue. I envy those who can sleep in public. I cant do it under any circumstances. Not even for a second.

Ingid, yes, the breadsticks were major garlicky, oily, salty things. I could see nibbling on them all night long. I forgot TJ"s has the Orange Chicken. Duh! i bought the regular Gardein brand of Tenders as well. All Gardein products were on sale for $4/bag a couple weeks ago.
