I have mixed feelings about Valentines. Part of me doesn't want to buy into the commercial aspect of it. I definitely feel like I should be feeling cared for all the time- not just that one day of the year. But on the other hand- I'm a girl...and dinner and a card or flowers go a long way.
Chris and I had great dinner on Friday as he was away on Monday, and I was lucky enough to have two of my lovely friends over for dinner in my new place.
And thus the challenge of creating a delicious meal that even non-cleansers would enjoy.
Organic greens with pine nuts, avocado and a balsamic
olive oil dressing (skimpy on the greens but I ran out)
Talapia steamed in coconut milk, sesame
oil, lemon juice and ginger topped with
toasted coconut and fresh mango. Roasted
beets on the side. Delish!
A rich chocolate cake for dessert: almond, date and
cocao crust with a cacao, agave and coconut oil filling.
In the end, it was an amazing night. All I can say is that I'm endlessly grateful for the wonderful food I'm able to eat, but even more so, for the beautiful friends I get to share it with.
