A's Top Ten List

HELLO BLOG FRIENDS!!!! Oh how I have missed you all! I have been out of town visiting family and now I have so much to tell you! So here it goes, 10 things I have been dying to tell you!

1. I am in LOVE with Greek/Mediterranean food and just discovered it this weekend! Any good places here in Indy? Did you know a lot of these restaurants also do raw juice? I ate at an insane place called The Pita Cafe in Mo-Town! I am smiling just thinking about it! Thanks for taking me E!

2. I got new stainless steel pots and pans! The blood doctor I saw said scratched non-stick pots & pans were a big culprit of metal toxicity. Got mine @ Meijer for $100

3. Natural Born Juicers now have all compostable cups! WOO-HOO!

4. I got some new Raw Vegan Protein Powder! I'll let you know how I like it tomorrow!
5. I learned over the weekend that S'mores are the main reason I can never be 100% vegan!
Those little things are off the stizick!

6. Coconut Kiefer rocks! (got it at Nature's Market)

7. I tried Amazing Grass Berry flavour and it was DELISH!

8. I got some cacao nibs to put on top of my green smoothies and my overnight oats. They are different from what I expected, but good. Gives a nice crunch on top!

9. Michigan's Farmer's Markets are AMAZING!!! I have never seen so many cherries!
10. Indy's City Market was off the hook today! Parking lots were full! That didn't stop me though. I loaded up! Here is what I got: cucumbers, squash, eggplant, onions, PURPLE peppers, a bottle of rhubarb wine, a bouquet of beautiful flowers, and a large Ultimate Greens from Natural Born Juicers...all for $30. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself!

I'm excited to try some new recipes this week, so of course I'll share them with you! I also have a vegan potato salad recipe I want to give you that my sister-in-law made! YUMMY!


  1. OMG i was so excited to see a new blog from you that I sped thru it so fast...then had to go back and re-read to comprehend! lol I admit to smores last weekend, too! Nice job on the pans, I wonder if that's where Brian & his mom got their metal poisoning as well. I think ours currently are ok. My mom has always been big into making sure we have good pans because of the aluminum related to Alzheimer's/Mema. Ok so I'd love a blog about toiletries such as deoderant and you take requests? lol I'm taking your advice and hitting the downtown city market. Been before off and on but only to have a business lunch. I'll let you know if I find anything cool.

  2. Yes, I will do one on toiletries and what I am spending. Thanks for the topic ideas!

  3. I live in Indy too and I have to reccomend Aesop's Tables. I haven't been there (yet) but I keep trying to get people to go with me! I have heard from EVERYONE that it is some of the best Greek for in Indianapolis. It is downtown on Mass ave.

  4. Ok, I have to comment again! (I'm reading through some of your recent posts since this is my first time visit).
    I saw the photo of the rhubarb wine and I have to tell you that it is excellent! My son bought me a bottle at Christmastime because he knows how much I love rhubarb! I even freeze fresh rhubarb so I can use it in recipes after it's gone out of season (it's only here for such a short time!
    Enjoy it!
