"Reinventing Indulgence" One meal at a time!

V-Spot Cafe is my FAVORITE VEGAN SPOT in Brooklyn!
I seem to go there on the regular. I thought they were just open Thursday through Sunday which was a bit odd but now I see they are open daily. I simply cannot leave there without having the summer roll and the kale tostadas– it’s just impossible. If you would like to check out pictures of those favorites, visit one of my earlier blogs on the V-Spot Cafe:

I really have been trying to be good lately. I think celebrating my birthday for over a month set me back a little bit.Β When you find yourself drifting off the beaten path, like I do, it’s best to go back to basics. For me, this means writing food down, which I have been doing now for a week. Just a few days ago, I decided to take that a step further and enter it online. I recall back to when I really began to lose weight 2 years ago. I was slowly changing my lifestyle choices- one step at a time. After 5 months of change, I moved from writing food down to tracking it online. What a difference then.. and what a difference now in only a few days this time.Β 

The point of my story... I was nervous to go to the V-Spot because I tend to over-order and then on top of that, I find it hard to escape without ordering and fully indulging in the infamous PEANUT BUTTER BOMB!

Since I was doing well this week, I figured I would take the risk. I have to say I succeeded! I ordered my two favorite appetizers with a friend and then I ordered the RAW NORI ROLLSone of the healthiest items on the menu! On the flip side, I did talk my friend into getting the Colombian Bandeja Paisa. Honestly, I have ordered this a lot and just as the original dish itself, it’s too much food! My friend had it and it was super delicious today- the photo says it all really! Yes.. I had one bite!

Moving on to desserts and peanut butter bombs- I did say NO! However, I was torn between the pumpkin cheesecake and the chocolate chip cookie. The waiter said that the cookies were very special- that was enough for me! I had ONE and savored every bite. I saved 200 calories not ordering the cheesecake and an additional 500 calories not ordering the peanut butter bomb. BABY STEPS!
