Teatime Today

We went out for coffee this afternoon and took along these raw sesame kookies.  We p picked them up earlier in the day rom Pat Grier at the Market.  Only Little Brother came out with us.  Only little brother can eat sesame (parents too). Otherwise, we would not have been munching on sesame because Big Brother is allergic. We work around each other's food allergies.

Collard wraps are a favorite of mine.  Today I topped with quinoa, diced apple, red cabbage, roasted squash, cilantro, avocado, sprouted pumpkin seeds, apple cider vinegar, meyer lemon and EVOO.  Lunch always tastes better outside on the patio.

A little later after a walk around the block, it was time to read and enjoy homemade raw cacao brownies topped with homemade almond butter
