    CraZy! You are living the raw/vegan way for sure! I just got to go to Whole Foods this weekend after 2 months! The closest one is an hour away. 😀

    Mmmm. Everything looks fantastic. That Whole Foods is insane!

    So glad you took a break from scheduled programming and had so much fun! I love how non-fanatical you’re being about the whole raw thing. It’s really refreshing.

    That chocolate mint cake looks just supreme. Surprised you don’t love mint (it’s one of my faves, esp with chocolate) – my creative thoughts are pumping around your white choc suggestions, and a mint mousse would be just right!

    Hope you’re having a great week 2

    You guys sure know how to eat! Everything you ordered looks ridiculously good! The cake would have been hard to resist for me too, I have to admit. I’m glad you had such a fun road trip!

    Oh Amber. Words cannot express. How is it fair that you have a raw academy near you, and then all these raw restaurants and places with amazing smoothies too? Why can’t I figure out a way to move over there? I want to go out for those smoothies with you… and I’m normally not interested in smoothies at all! Somehow coconut oil, bee pollen, and cacao nibs sounds better than the standard banana-peach-soymilk smoothie I can make here 😉

    So glad you got to see Matt this weekend! Hope he enjoyed the raw chocolate 🙂

    Ok so now you’ve made me extremely jealous I never made it to Dallas, if only for the food!!!

    Strawberry seduction was my fave, I replicate it all the time. Sometimes I put spinach and spirulina in it too!!!

    OMG…everything looked sooo good!! It sounds like you had a great time together!

    We were going to go to that Whole Foods last time we were in town, but we ran out of time. I have been to Cosmic Cafe! And since I ordered what you ordered last time you went to Bliss, I’ll just follow up and do it again. 🙂 Because those meals look amazing, too. Aren’t these restaurants so lucky to have all of our free advertisementes? 🙂

    It’s late and I’m tired after all the driving, but I had a fantastic weekend. So much good food! Dallas is definitely a place we’ll be visiting again. 😀

    Oh my…what delicious looking food…especially that pie…yum!!!
    What a huge whole foods. I don’t get to whole foods very often because I have to drive over an hour to get to it. :o(
    I have never been to Dallas, but clearly I need to go someday. 🙂

    GEEZ. I think I just drooled all over my keyboard. THAT FOOD IS INCREDIBLE. I want. All. Of. It.

    That chocolate mint pie thing- woah.
    The California pizza, the smoothies, and the Sweet Awareness dessert… oh and the black bean burger. Words just don’t do them justice but you seemed to find amazing adjectives. YUM YUM YUM!
