|Quinoa Salad - cherry tomatoes, orange segments, nuts and tahini vinaigrette|
The first weekend I decided to change my diet, my friend had her birthday dinner at Bridges. To prepare myself I googled them to see if they had a website coz you never know. There are some restaurants out there that still don't have a website. Weird, right? But anyways, I was so happy that they did and so I clicked on their menu to see if they had any vegan options & they did! I got to the restaurant and ordered my salad. I have to say salads at any restaurant is quite pricey and it almost doesn't seem worth ordering it. But I was sticking to my choice. When our food started coming, I saw everyone's yummy dishes, some had steaks, fish, prawns, and then my salad came. I saw it and honestly, my mouth wasn't watering at all. I think everyone felt sorry for me coz they started offering to share some of their meal with me. But I said no and said I'm sticking to my salad. :) When I had the first bite, I thought ok, I can do this. A couple more bites and I thought it was pretty tasty. Definitely not the same as steak but still tasty. Surprisingly... this is the end result.

It's been 3 weeks since I started and so far, it's going better than I expected. :)
