Last night we found this great all organic/health food store in Toulouse called Vert de Terre...translates to "Green Earth". We purchased organic everything...fruits, veggies, quinoa, tea, bread, ginger, nuts, cereal bars, etc...we went crazy.....it was nice to finally find organic produce because the conventional one is just as bad here as it is back in the states...you can taste it! The owner is vegan so we were in heaven! Vert de Terre is located at 17 Rue Peyras, downtown Toulouse. http://www.happycow.net/gmaps/get-map-direct.php?vid=888

Back at the hotel we prepared raw veggie burrito style nori wraps. Ingredients: zucchini squash, carrots, bell pepper, radish, avocado, garlic and ginger....dipped in soy sauce of course!
We also shared an already prepared veggie soup (which we heated up in the electric tea pot) accompanied by a nutty bread.
We are experimenting with quinoa...soaking it tonight overnight and will try to eat it raw tomorrow......will share the results soon!
