If you're ever in the Fairfield area, I definitely suggest stopping in. It is 100% raw and vegan. The food, like I said, is amazing; the staff are warm and friendly; the atmosphere is bright and open. While we were there, lots of apparent regulars came in to pick up green juices, shots of ginger, milkshakes and sandwiches. Several people were there with their young children. Glen, the wonderful owner, made a balloon dog for a little boy sitting near us (he was enjoying a big green salad and a macaroon- awesome raw kids!).
We happened to be there while Ian Ziering (actor, health educator) was presenting about antioxidant levels in the body. A woman was using a biophotonic scanner to measure peoples' antioxidant levels right there. Claire and I both got our levels tested for fun, and scored in the highest sector! Yay for raw food! Plus, it was donation-based and all the proceeds went to Nourish the Children, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending starvation for children in Africa. And now onto the food!
|The spring rolls; kelp noodles, avocado and veggies in a spinach-coconut wrapper with coconut amino-ginger sauce.|
|The house burger; a nut-seed burger topped with avo, 'ketchup' and mustard on onion bread, plus a side salad.|
|Claire clearly enjoyed it, as well.|
|Caramel bar, cinnamon roll, oatmeal raisin cookie.|
|Brownie batter with wild jungle peanut butter.|
So after all this food-bliss, we packed up our cameras and made for the door, but not before Glen stopped us and gave us even more delicious food as a parting gift.
|Butter pecan ice cream pie. !!!!!!!!|
|Two macaroons, one 's'more' and an oatmeal raisin cookie.|
to visit the beach!
|Boots on the beach.|
I know, I know, it's not the most beautiful thing you've ever seen, but my GOD it's delicious. (My entire family disagrees. My brother says it smells like rotten eggnog and my mother says decaying corpses. There's no accounting for taste, I guess!)
A very successful day. Any happy day is a successful one!
In love and gratitude, namaste all the way-
