On Friday I tried out a Les Mills BodyFlow class at my gym, which I've been meaning to try for years! I felt a bit awkward doing the tai chi warm up, but I liked the yoga components. The pilates tracks killed me though - I wasn't expecting such an ab workout!
Later I went to check out The Meatless Market, which is a newly opened vegan store here in London. I was hoping to find some bulk bins there, but no such luck. They have a fairly good selection of products at good prices though and they seem to always be holding events with authors and locally made goods, so they're worth checking out. For any locals who are reading, you can find them at the Fanshawe Park Road and Hyde Park Road intersection.

On Saturday morning I went to Covent Garden Market for my groceries. I like to pick up as many items as I can there, and then buy the rest at the grocery store. I got lots of produce - some of it local! - from Doris Family Produce, aged local cheddar from Smith Cheese, and local organic stewing beef from Fieldgate Organics. It made me excited for my meals this week!
I don't usually work weekends, but after the market I went in to run a demo on nut free peanut butter alternatives. I'm in charge of ordering the retail products at Organic Works, and I noticed that the nut butter alternatives weren't really selling, so my coworker suggested I do this demo. I love sharing my favourite products with others, so I had so much fun doing this.
After I had a late lunch while placing some product orders with our distributors for next week. I got the turkey sandwich on buckwheat bread and a side salad, which is my go-to order at work when I don't get one of the specials. We have the best sandwiches!
On Sunday I went out for sushi with Andrea and Shannon at Take Sushi on Wellington. None of us had ever been there before so we decided to give it a shot.
I got a wakame salad, a California roll and a salmon roll, which was just okay. I found the rice to be a bit mushy and the fish didn't taste particularly fresh. It kind of reminded me of sushi I could buy at a grocery store.
The company was awesome though. Since we're all in the nutrition program, we're always talking about food and nutrition related topics. Like last night we covered the Paleo diet, calorie counts on menus, holistic medicine, dietetic internships, and anemia. Maybe that wouldn't be interesting for most people, but I always love talking about issues in our field.
And speaking of my field, I have to get ready to go to my last class of undergrad ever! Have a great Monday everyone. :)
Do you prefer yoga, pilates, or tai chi?
