Daily eats of a Torontonian student

One of the Pink Flavours August 2, 2009

So before I get to today’s eats, I have to back track to the movies last night. We stuck around for two movies, and there’s something to say about each one. First, we saw The Ugly Truth. It was a fun movie, but most importantly, I found a sign that I’ve been reading too many food blogs. I noticed that Katherine Heigl was sipping Synergy Kombucha near the beginning of the movie. One of the pink flavours. Of course the day before she was drinking Red Bull, and the next day it was coffee, but still, kombucha product placement in a hollywood movie was not something I was expecting to see. Second thing of note, Funny People is hands down the best movie I’ve ever seen. Granted, my movie watching experience is probably pretty limited compared to the average person, but for me, this movie was the perfect combination of smart and silly comedy mixed with a good story that made 2.5 hours (after already seeing The Ugly Truth!) fly by and left me wishing it would just go on. Seriously, go see it, it’s awesome.

Now, for a cheery breakfast. Blueberries, plums, and pecans. 🙂


Lunch I roasted up some potato and beet with olive oil and italian herbs, and had that along with a carrot and a cucumber.


Later in the afternoon I had a delicious green monster made of pak choi, chia seeds, pineapple, and banana. The fruit was frozen so it was the perfect thing to cool off in an apartment that I had managed to heat up with the oven earlier.


Then for a late dinner I heated up some Sol falafel patties with lemon tahini sauce, and pair it with a super simple, and super tasty slaw made of shredded cabbage and Ted Reader’s Peach and Bourbon BBQ sauce.
