I’ve been so busy with school lately that my planned blogger meetup yesterday was barely a blip on my radar until I woke up on Saturday morning and remembered that I had some awesome plans. Angela from Eat Spin Run Repeat put together a fabulous lunch date for us and invited us all the way out to Waterloo. Thankfully Sarah offered us a carpool.
Our destination: Thrive Juice Bar
This place was seriously beautiful, super cool decor! I always like being able to look onto the food prep, it’s so interesting.
I had some wonderful company to enjoy my lunch with:
- Angela from Eat Spin Run Repeat
- Sarah from Long Legs Healthy Life
- Steph from Lunges and Lunch
- Therese from Life’s Tasty Adventures
- Lisa from Vegan Culinary Crusade
- Dani from Body By Nature
Sometimes I just want to weep at my good fortune of having such amazing friends. I had the most wonderful time chatting with these ladies yesterday. Dani brought a big huge box of awesomeness with her. Rivi’s Guilt Free Cookies and Sweets From The Earth very generously donated a whole bunch of sweets for us to make goodie bags with. I’m not even that much of a sweets person, but these two companies seriously know how to delight, I think I may have squealed!
Now onto the lunch at Thrive. This food was so delicious I had a smile on my face the entire time. First was a sangria smoothie.
For lunch I ordered the Vegan Pad Thai. So full of flavour, so full of veggies! Every bite tasted a little bit different because there were so many flavours in one dish.
Lastly, they served up a cheese cake that Sweets From The Earth sent for us along with some coconut gelato and a cup of delicious loose leaf tea (that I can’t remember the flavour probably because I was too excited, just know that it was delicious).
The owner, Jonnie was so nice and kind and showed us the best afternoon ever. May I be cliche for a moment and say RUN don’t walk to Thrive Juice Bar. I’m already trying to plan who will drive me there next Any takers?
