King's Cafe Yum!

My relationship with King's Cafe starts years back when I was still promoting Crystal Light at random events (oh yeah). One of the events we went to was some food expo. The best part about the expo was that our booth was positioned right next to King's!! I made a convention buddy at the King's Booth named Andrew (whom, as it would turn out, happened to know a huge number of my friends; small world no?). Though he wasn't interested in samples of Crystal Light (because really now...), he did keep me well fed on bite sized pieces of godly deliciousness. Lucky me!

Being a big fan of King's, I of course introduced the boyface to their wonderfulness. In true Daviid fashion, he is now even more obsessed with the place and it's yummyness than I am. We're a little (ok a lot) sad about the redesign, which got rid of the outdoor feel of the place and the beautiful waterfall mural we always sat next to. However, the food is as wonderful as ever.

My husband and I were at King's on the weekend and picked up some takeout tonight as well, after what can only be classified as the laziest paddle ever... We're not very adventurous when it comes to ordering food, though we did actually try something new this time round!!

Hot and sour soup with shredded tofu and soy ham

dumplings!! Ok, not gluten-free, I know...don't worry mom, only ate a couple!

Enoki mushroom balls (the something new!)

Purple rice

The best part of the whole meal (though it's a tough competition)! Spicy soy kung pao chicken! So so so so so good!!!

note: I have some new recipes I've been working on that I'm going to post when I'm back after this weekend!


Just found your blog through one of your recipes at - you have some great stuff here!

I don't experiment nearly as much as I'd like to, but definitely want to try some of your recipes.

I'm building my meal plan to allow for leftovers, because in any meal plan, really, leftovers are kind of needed to get by timewise.

A note on raw eating...I am trying to achieve a high raw lifestyle, meaning that 90-95% of what I'm eating is raw. However, when it comes to spices and oils and tamari, I am often not opting for the raw versions. For spices and oils, this is a matter of accessibility (other than coconut oil, which is easy and inexpensive to acquire); although I am going to try to find and use more whole versions of the spices (like the tumeric root and cardamon pods, for instance), it will still be very hard to determine whether these are raw. For tamari, this is because nama shoyu (the raw version) contains gluten, which I am allergic to. Now, you could go with bragg's soy sauce-like product, but I don't use enough o…

I already toted the many amazing benefits of sesame seeds here so we'll skip that part in this post and go straight to the awesomeness that is tahini.

Raw tahini is delightfully easy, and inexpensive, to make. And you can do such awesome things with it! I personally love using tahini as salad dressing. And when I discovered you could make a delicious cheese sauce with it...!! You can't really tell from the photo, but this makes a deliciously creamy and cheesy sauce that you can use on zucchini linguine, or for kale chips, or really just about anywhere that cheesy goodness could go (which is pretty much anywhere). The cheesy tahini broccoli is my version of Julie Morris's awesome recipe. While you're there check out her other recipes, yum they sure do look good!

Ok, it's been a great great weekend for many reasons: went to an amazing clothing swap put on by V. A. S. T., went to my adorable niece's birthday party, attended a wonderful raw potluck (yum!!), and went to my uncle and dad's joint bday lunch at my uncle's place. And to make everything even better, there were amazing people and conversations throughout it all!

So that part has been great. Of course, all the family get togethers mean that I haven't been eating as raw as I normally do. And I'm really noticing how much better my body does when I'm eating mostly raw. I feel much more grossly full and sluggish on cooked foods. And my throat is burning as it's giving me some serious acid reflux issues. I've also been on this stupid cleanse (I bought it a long time ago and figured I had better use it …
