It’s official — I’m DONE with Microbiology!! Woop! 7 prerequisites down (Chem 1, Chem 2, Organic Chemistry, Bio 101, Anatomy & Physiology, Human Nutrition, Microbiology) — and just one left — my online BioChem course! Sooooo close :) I can’t believe how much I’ve accomplished since last summer!
I pried myself away from my riveting BioChem studying and went to meet the lovely Heather for lunch! Heart this girl:
This is Heather’s last week at work — she’s moving to Colorado in two weeks! Wahhh! The only reason I’m letting her leave is because I’m moving two weeks after her ;) At least I’ll get to see her again in August at the Healthy Living Summit (she’s a speaker, too!)
We met up at one of our fave vegetarian restaurants right near her office in Virginia: Sunflower Vegetarian!
I ordered the “Adventure of Tempeh Land”, heh, just because it has an awesome name. Thankfully it was also tasty :)
YUM! Organic tempeh sautÃ©ed with red bell peppers, snow peas, asparagus, baby corn, and white mushrooms in a Thai-style curry sauce served with brown rice:
Delish! I ate a little over half and took the rest home :) I’m really into tempeh recently. I first tried it in Prague, randomly, and have loved it ever since! Have you guys tried tempeh? Are you a fan? If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend it! It’s really different from tofu — much denser and “meatier” almost — the texture is way better.
Speaking of tofu, Heather had the organic grilled tofu and veggie sandwich. Pretty!
And then, we decided we needed to try tofu ice cream. Yes, tofu ice cream. Behold:
Looks like regular ice cream, right?! This was the “vanilla almond bark” and it was actually really tasty! It didn’t taste like normal ice cream, but it was good :) We were impressed.
Time to get back to studying. Have a great day and go eat some tempeh ;)
