Pinterest Boards, Tofu Wraps in Colorado Springs, plus Vegan News You Can Use (2/10/13)

Post image for Pinterest Boards, Tofu Wraps in Colorado Springs, plus Vegan News You Can Use (2/10/13)

by JL Fields on February 10, 2013

Yesterday we ran a few errands in the afternoon, including a trip to the Apple store to pick up an iPad for my business.

Kale Pinterest Board on TV

Yes, mirroring a Pinterest board on my television is work-related! Speaking of Pinterest, did you know I have boards for kale, seitan and soy curls?

While running around we decided to grab lunch at The Olive Branch in downtown Colorado Springs.  With tofu on the menu I felt confident I could find something to eat.  I’m not sure what I expected but it’s rather diner-like, which is cool because we haven’t eaten at a diner since moving and any diner with tofu is a friend of mine.  From the lunch menu I ordered the California wrap: tofu, avocado and a tahini sauce, hold the cheese.  The server asked if I wanted something else to replace the cheese. I don’t know about you but I’m not often asked that question (and am still charged full amount even though I omit cheese!). I was really pleased that she offered a substitution and I opted for black olives (her suggestion, actually).

Good stuff.

I have a couple of announcements:

  1. This spring Ginny Messina and I will launch a website to compliment our book Vegan for Her:The Women’s Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based DietWe’re taking topic suggestions from you!  Please leave your suggestions here.
  2. It’s four days until Valentine’s Day! Still need the perfect gift for your sweetheart (or for you!)?  How about one month of vegan lifestyle coaching, which I’m offering for 30% off in February!
  3. If you’re in the Colorado Springs-area be sure to sign up for my March vegan lifestyle class: Beyond Meatless Mondays: Dive Deeper into Plant-Based Living.  This class will be small class so register soon as space is limited!
