So, in case you haven't noticed, I sort of love vegetables. Perhaps it's an obsession. Vegetables make up most of my food intake, and I actually ENJOY it. I look forward to eating them and love going to the market (farmer's market or indoor) to load up my cart with shiny colorful edibles.
Imagine my excitement when one of my favorite local shops, Rosemont Market, opened up a fun little place called Rosemont Produce Company. Not just a market, but a Produce Company -- meaning, only fruits and veggies (and some flowers, but I like flowers too) are sold there! Earlier last week, Andrew and I had a surprise day off together. Visiting the 100% produce store was high on my list, along with checking out a new coffee shop next door.

After loading up on as many vegetables as our arms could carry, we headed next door to grab some tea from Crema, which also opened its doors recently.
Vegetables + tea + a day with Andrew = a perfect day, in my world.
When we came home, we made a light lunch: Steamed and seasoned kale, mushrooms, carrots, walnuts, and local black bean tempeh. It was so satisfying, and such a change to be able to eat lunch together!
And now...for the winner of the Tomuno Yoga Mat: Christine at Oatmeal in my bowl! Christine, I've sent you an email for further information from you -- Congrats!
