As we head into 2012, here is what I learned about this nutritarian lifestyle:
- I cannot live by non-oil, non-sugar vegetables at all times
- Saying that, I also don't believe that eating sugar and grease and fat means that I have fallen off the wagon.
- There is no wagon.
- There are 24 hours in a day in which we try to do our best to listen to our bodies and take care of ourselves the best we can.
- If we F*%$# up, tomorrow is another day.
When you're having one of those days, take a trip to Mountain View. Just outside of Mountain View, as you're heading to Glenwood is Pearl's Bakery and Cafe (on the left). They serve decadence on a dish and lots of it. The owners are super nice and there's seating outside for a leisurely coffee cake and tea or my favorite, the half order of biscuits and gravy with a white chunky gravy with homemade southern sausage. The biscuit is crunchy on the outside, flaky on the inside, and the gravy, OMG, addictive!
There's lots of parking and about 4 tables outside. You can also buy plant starters, and on the day we went, they had some fresh mahi caught that morning in fisherman boxes.
