The pre-wedding countdown
In five short days, I’ll be married!
And I have been so busy. SO SO BUSY. I will likely be behind on emails and such for weeks to come, just to warn you all.
As you may know, I’ve been guest-posting off and on about my wedding planning experience on the Rose Pedals Vegan Weddings blog, and in fact, my final pre-wedding post there just went live this morning: Marching To the Beat of Your Own Drum. I talk about some of the things that set our wedding apart from “the norm,” and you can get a peek at our awesome invites, too. Give it a read!
There are still a million and one things to do before the big day on Saturday, and these juice cleanses have been absolute lifesavers for me (time-wise) these last few weeks. I HAVE been eating “real food” too, though—here are a few things I’ve been noshing on.
Smoothies, like this chocolate avocado shake:
A whole bunch of…
…raw vegan Caesar salads! Often with extra avocado and/or olive tapenade.
I’m a little obsessed. I’ve been using the Peppery Avocado Dressing from this book…
…plus my own “Parmesan” sprinkle.
Avocado again, this time in the form of a sugar-free chocolate pudding (the recipe will be in my second book!):
I try and make sure my husband-to-be gets fed, too. 😛 On our last Sunday as an unmarried couple, Matt enjoyed his usual Apple Pie Smoothie (page 43 of Practically Raw) for breakfast.
This nighttime snack for Matt consisted of frozen bananas + leftover Chocolate-Coconut Fudge Sauce + a few chocolate chips.
That’s all I’ve got for now…too much else to do! And on top of all the wedding stuff, my bestest bloggie friend arrives on Wednesday night, all the way from Australia, to stay with us for two solid weeks. I can’t wait!
My final juice cleanse review is scheduled to go up on Thursday, but other than that, the next time you hear from me, I’ll be a married woman! WOOHOO!
And after it’s all said and done, if you all don’t mind, I may sicken you with a whole series of posts about our quirky, unconventional, elegantly gothy, eco-friendly, gluten-free vegan wedding. 😉
Wish us luck!!
