Whenever I’m at a sporting event, I watch the people around me; it’s safe to call me a people watcher. One of the things that always makes me chuckle is the way men (or women) react to their first sip of cold stadium beer. They even top it off with a sound effect, “ahh” and a quick wipe of the lips to remove the foam. When I go into a cafe or juice bar, I react the same way after getting my cup of coffee or cold press juice. It instantly gives me the happy bug. I make the same sound effect and wipe off foam from the lip. We all have little things in life that make us excited. Coconut water, smoothies, healthy restaurants, and salad are some of my little favorites. I like antiques stores, old towns, taking pictures, and candles too.
When Nick told me we were going to Luna’s kitchen on Friday, I was so excited. Lunas’s has everything that makes me happy!
Because I was so excited to tell you about my race on Saturday, I skipped this post entirely. I’m finally getting caught up, kinda, if you don’t count posts that I have lined up from months and months ago. I’ve been binge watching the Fosters for the past couple of days and it’s helping me catch up on work. Anways, before my attention span takes us to a totally different topic, I’ll get back to Luna’s!
Iowa was playing on Friday and so we decided to get our food to go. Luna’s Living kitchen is in the Southend of Charlotte right off of South Blvd. It’s a must if you like healthy food; it’s a must if you like food in general.
Their juices are so good! I picked up one for my race Saturday.
I love everything that Luna’s kitchen is about.

I already knew what I wanted when I got there!
Nick and I decided to split and appetizer, which is our excuse to order more food and feel better about it. They had a new item on the menu, sweet potato sushi! It had red bell peppers, cucumbers and arugula wrapped with sweet potato rice and nori leaves and garnished with a lightly spiced Thai chili sauce. These would be fun to make at home!
We also ordered whole grain vegan bread with almond butter.
I’m really bad at deciding, and so I saved the pain, and ordered the arugula harvest salad. I ordered it last time and have been craving it ever since. The salad has arugula, red cabbage, spriralized root vegtables, avocado, pear, caramelized pecans, pumpkin seeds, raisins, homade cashew basil cheese, and maple mustard vinaigrette.
The cashew basil cheese literally tastes like cheese. I was impressed!
Nick ordered the Lunasagna. It has layers of tender, crisp zucchini noodles, cahsew basil cheese, sun-dried tomato sauce and mushrooms. It’s also served with a side salad. The Lunasagna was really good and I didn’t think I’d like it because it was cold, but it was perfect!
This was the perfect meal to prepare for a race!
