A Lunch Date

My roommate and I decided to do lunch today! It was a fun surprise because I planned on just heating up a Sunshine Burger! We went to our favorite Lebanese restaurant and we both got the exact same thing: falafel wraps with a side salad! Oh my goodness, was it ever good! The salad they served us was huge though and I only ate half but I did manage to eat one of the mini pitas they serve you at the table along with my entire wrap. I’m pretty full now but it was completely worth it…I have an obsession/addiction to falafel ever since I literally ate it every day in Paris. I just love that stuff!




I believe those pink things are pickled radishes. They actually go really well in the wrap, which had a little hummus, a couple plump falafel balls and cucumber in it. YUM!

I’m cooking right now and am going to the gym in a little bit to have a lower body workout. See you later!

    I just have to share my most recent finding:
    fat-free vegan blueberry crisp for one. Delicious. I just made one and had it with plain yogurt and I think I’ve found a new obsession 🙂

    That looks so good! I had falafel out in California a few years back and loved it but I never find it around here. I tried some from Whole Foods and didn’t like it. I guess I need to go to Florida… or Paris! 🙂

    Mmm, that crisp does look good and super easy to make –especially since I have all the ingredients at home! I think I am making myself a vegan blueberry crisp for dessert tonight. Can’t wait!

    Katherine, BlueBerryBabe and Nicole R.,

    Thank you so much for all your input (on the BREAKFAST post)!!


    My name is Sara and when I was in pre-school I had a boyfriend who couldn’t pronounce his “r”, so he called me Sasa. For some reason my brother decided to adopt this nickname from my pre-school lover and always called me Sasa.

    Upon first meeting my sister-in-law she picked up on my brother’s nickname for me and thought he was saying SawSaw because my initials are SAW–ever since my brother adapted his nickname for me to SawSaw and my sister-in-law has continued with it. And thus ends the evolution of my nickname
