Lunch Time Review - Arturo's Mexican to Go

Today I lost my lunch buddies and was on my own.    I could sit in the cold office reading my book or go for a walk and see what happens!

I mentioned to our HR person that I didn't know what I wanted to eat and that I may just wander until something appeared and inspired me, she told me I MUST go try the "Taco Truck". 

She told me which direction to start walking in and I vaguely remembered passing by Howe and Cordova late one afternoon and seeing a "Taco Truck" packing up.  

When I arrived at Howe and Cordova I was met with this lovely sight:

I ordered the Calle Trio which is 3 corn tortilla's with your choice of meat and salsa.    It comes with black beans, rice and salad for $9.50 ; I also ordered a bottle of water for $1.   The staff are quick, efficient and clean, and I was impressed by how quickly my "non-fast food" was done.

A plus for this food truck - they take debit and credit cards, but I had cash and left a nice tip.    I ordered 1 Chicken and 2 Beef taco's and I should have known when the guy smiled when I asked for it medium spicy!

As you can see the portion is HUGE and all lovely fresh ingredients.  I could not stop eating the salad which was a simple lettuce salad with lime, mango, pico de gallo, corn, black beans and cheese.

The chicken taco went first and it was AMAZING!   The chicken was moist and perfectly seasoned.   There was a lovely bite from the salsa, jalapeno's and onions.   I added some black beans and rice, which as many of you know is huge because I hate mexican rice.   This rice was nice, not dry, not wet, not overly tomatoey or spicy, it was just nice!

The beef taco's were more spicy and very very tender.   The chipotle was a lovely warm flavour that was in perfect balance with the fresh veggies and beans.   A word to the sensitive, I like a nice spicy meal, so if you are a wimp go with the mild!   I think if I ordered just chicken I might have to kick up the spice level but the beef was the perfect mix of spicy and yummyness!

I stuffed my face, until I could eat no more and alas I was not even close to clearing the plate!   In my humble opinion, well worth the $10 and it was a nice walk.
Another bonus with Arturo's is that they have the corn option for those who are gluten free and they have a burrito in a bowl for those who are carb free.   You get all the ingredients from the burrito but on the salad!   If your going low fat you could drop the cheese and sourcream as well because they ask you what toppings you would like for each dish.

I highly recommend you make a stop at Arturo's Mexican to Go next time your in the neighborhood for lunch on a work day.  If you have the Eat Street App it is located under "Revuelta Cue Arturo."   Here is their website -

I hope you all had a wonderful lunch and I leave you with this parting shot of my "lunch room" this afternoon!

Till next time.....

Review - Usana Reset

Its been a while since i wrote here, but I thought this would be the best place to host my review.

What is the Usana Reset?  according to their website:

Reset is a 5 day Jumpstart that is a nutritionally balanced, low-calorie system to help you kick carbohydrate cravings and lose the first few pounds and find the motivation to keep working toward your total weigh-loss goal.   Reset helps people jumpstart healthy eating habits and begin to make a clean break from unhealthy, high-glycemic foods.

Reset is meant to be followed up by a 2 month program that tapers off of their food product and into a Low GI diet.   
This review is specifically about the 5 day reset.  Here is how the week shapes up:
You can buy the products online but they recommend you buy the actual reset package that includes a DVD and other extra's.

I have a close contact who sells Usana and they just bought me the items I needed to complete the days.

Lets take a look at the different things my week was made up of:


Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life…

WOAH........its been awhile.

Its howdy doody time….its howdy doo….wait?  

what was I talking about? Oh yeah….
Its update time….I know my three loyal followers are wondering if I fell off the face of the earth and I kind of feel like I have.
Okay lets go back in the history books and see where our intrepid hero was when we last spoke with her….
HOLY F^&*)^!!!!!   I was leaving for Europe….has it really been almost a year!!!!!!!!!

Man I am going to have to break this one up….so here is what I will do.   I will write a general update and go back and review my pics and journals and then I will write a series of three posts.   One for Italy, one for France and a final one  for London and my overall feelings about the trip.

I guess for your hard core fans you have seen the pics on facebook and heard the stories around the watercooler, but for those of you who aren’t in the know….I will tell you all the gritty details.   Tales of the most disastrous travel day of my life….the most amazing meal I ever ate….the pickp…
