Overall, this was an amazing day :-). I ate no animal products, lots of plant foods, saw some of my favourite people and went to a fabulous exhibition.
The day began with sunshine and a fridge clear out in preparation for my weekly food delivery. I often juice the left over fruits and veggies to make space for the fresh ones: pink grapefruit, oranges, green grapes, carrots and celery were prepared for juicing. 2 glasses of sunshine juice made the perfect start to the day. I spent a couple of happy hours in the garden. I was in the veggie patch, weeding and planting out spinach and bean seedlings. I then hopped on a train to London; this is Victoria Station. I met my lovely Lara and we had a pleaseant stroll through London, admiring the gorgeous residential streets we walked through as we walked through Sloane Square and towards South Kensington.
I have never seen an electric car charging before.
Our destination was Tanya’s Cafe in Ixworth Place. All their ingredients are organic, and everything is free from gluten, dairy, wheat and refined sugar. Plus everything is raw so you get a big dose of nutritious food. I have been wanting to go here for months and was very excited but I confess I was disappointed. It was all ok but nothing special and I think I make better food at home.
I started with a green juice called ‘My Alkalizer’ which was made with kale, spinach, lemon apple and cucumber. We shared some nibbles to start with; BBQ spiced activated seeds and nuts, carrot crudités with chickpea free humous and ‘cheesey’ kale crisps. As a main I had a Pad Thai salad Hello Lara!For dessert I had a chocolate and walnut slice. I did only have one slice but they served 2 portions on a sharing board. This was really good but the rest of the food was just average and I prefer my own food and juices. The coffee was ok. So thanks for an alright meal but I don’t think I will be back. Our next destination was the V&A which is next to this magnificent building which houses the Natural History museum. We went to the Alexander McQueen ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibition which was fabulous. We all loved it and I recommend you go and see it. Afterwards we wandered along, chatting and looking for a bar or pub to have a drink in. London is such a beautiful city to wander around. How I would love to live in one of these! We had a glass of wine and then wandered back to the car park where Michelle had parked. Parking in London is not cheap! Amazing cars in this car park near Sloane Square.
So this was a great day. I didn’t need any supper and hopefully the gardening and walking have burnt off the glass of wine and the raw chocolate dessert. The best thing today was the exhibition which was BRILLIANT!
