When we went to Om cafe many many years ago, they not only had vegan desserts, but they were a macrobiotic restaurant. Saw lots of steamed kale and brown rice with tofu - not too appetizing to a bunch of growing children (mine - 4 at the time - they loved Inn Season the best for entrees, and the bread they brought to the table!)

om cafe is still open in Ferndale! yay! looks like they have a location in traverse city too so thats fun. Excellent menu on their website. Definitely lots of brown rice and stemaed kale for sure as you said! Yeah im sure your kids were not really digging that part of it too much. :(
Thanks for the info this will definitely be our next date night!! :) I only wish I didnt live so far from all these great foodie options. Its fun to make a day out of going to places like that though so then we can stop at health food stores and dorky stuff like that I'm into

Haven't heard from you in awhile - which is weird as you are so consistent in your journal. How is it going?

Hello! I am good! Still training hard, I just have not been posting all my workouts. I keep a training log i write in as well and lately i just have not been online as much.
Making some gains in strength here and there always working on something! Also always tweaking things in my nutrition trying to find a good balance for my body and goals. Hows it going for you? Still lifting some mega heavy weights and killin it in the gym?

CHECK OUT THE PB2 HERE................. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_ ... ywords=PB2


It's basically a powdered peanut butter with not so much fat. im totally addicted to it...and it comes in chocolate peanut butter.
its a bit pricey (of course) sooo i really try to ration it but i am super into it

That is so clever! I do chunky peanut butter in the morning with my grain cereal, so I need to have the fat in my peanut butter as it is the bulk of my fats for the day. The usual fat for the day was avocado/guacamole - but that has been put on the back burner lately as I am burnt out on it from eating it all during the summer, LOL! But what an interesting diet food for people to be able to get the taste of peanuts into their food without the added fat! Like a peanut butter extract, only in powdered form.

yes exactly like a peanut butter extract!! My problem is im really into all the healthy fats like avocado, chia etc, any kind of nutbutter etc. so I figure if I can control it a bit with this stuff somewhat then I wil be a little better off. Yeah check it out sometime for fun if you ever see it, works great in anything like oatmeal,protein shakes,cereals
whole foods does have it
