Thanks! I live in Brooklyn but I am close to Manhattan and go there often. I have been to Blossom and I liked it. That was the only place on your list I have been so far so I am excited to try some of the other spots. The curry soup sounds amazing and the veg ice cream with coconut wipped topping (I am a sucker for anything coconut).

Ha fantastic! I am a sucker for all that is coconut as well. Let me know what you think of some of the other places. New York is a great place for vegans...Boston not quite as much but we're getting there.

Fosho. I also just checked your profile and checked out that beat blog, is that your blog or just one that you like? I assume its yours but thought I'd ask.

Yea, that'd be me. I haven't been doing a great job of keeping it updated though. I'm super busy with work and training and eating haha. I do plan on trying to put my weekly workout's and training goals up though, I have a few races I'm training for and I hope that maybe I can inspire someone...somewhere. Feel free to go to my facebook page too, I occasionally put up some recipes and pics of my food. And if you're interested, I have been trying to get someone to write a guest post from a vegan perspective.

I temporarily deactivated my fb. But I will friend you when I reactivate it. I am down to write a guest post but I'm not 100% vegan. I'm still working at that, I'd say I'm like 85% there. :)
I think I'm a great resource for the community though. Vegans need those close but not there yet backing them to support the movement I think :)

Sure I'd love to. Just tell me when and how. I'm a pretty good writer. I work for eHow writing instructional articles and I used to write copy for radio commercials. I think a big reason for the 15% non-veganess is people around me. Specifically I often seem to end up dating ladies that love meat and won't be swayed... Its a curse. My current fling or whatever has already shown she has a problem with me not eating meat...haha shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't give her flack for what she eats grrr. tmi, sorry. Pretend you didn't read any of that except for the first couple lines about me letting you know I'd be down to write on your site.

Awesome, I really appreciate it. You can write an article whenever you have some free time, no stress. You can email me the article or any questions at kaliunleashed@gmail.com. I know what you mean about the dating thing, I've never dated a vegan, they've always been meat people. I got lucky with my husband though, he's a meat eater but he doesn't have a problem with me being vegan. He actually thinks it's great that I'm vegan and I'm passionate about it. I don't think I can convert him, though I wish I could. I appreciate that he doesn't give me crap for my lifestyle, and I try not to give him any, but you know, it's hard when he fries everything haha. I would just say, whoever you are with should accept and appreciate you for who you are. Sorry for your women troubles, but i'm sure things will work out in the end, they always do :)

Back from a long weekend anniversary vacation. I was still able to do a workout Friday morning and Saturday morning and got a wonderful full body massage Saturday as well. However, my diet went slack. I rarely get the chance to eat vegan/Gluten free cake and I took advantage of it as well as some other vegan treats. I am determined to get back on track and eat clean and train hard. I am too close to my goals to give up now. :)

(Triple Set)
Standing Calf Raises - 3 sets of 20 reps: 30lb dumbbells in each hand

Seated Calf Raise - 3 sets of 20 reps: 90lb

Oatmeal with almond butter, banana, ground flax seed and almond milk and a bit of maple syrup

Snack:

tea with almond milk

Lunch:
Bag of carrots
Salad(lettuce, shredded beets, hemp seeds, pepitas, cucumber, mushrooms, mustard, green pepper, onion)
orange
tea

Snack:
apple
water

Dinner:
Raw chili
