Feelin’ the Love in L.A.

May 11, 2008 at 8:33 am 8 comments

This week in L.A., we had the pleasure of meeting the owner of Euphoria Loves RAWvolution, Matt Amsden. Matt is also the author of RAWvolution. Be sure to check it out next time you’re in Santa Monica! His restaurant also does raw food delivery (“The Box”) and will deliver nationwide. You can see Matt speaking on YouTube here.

We also spent some time in Redondo Beach at Terra Bella, owned by the lovely Melissa Davidson. I’m still dreaming of their Coconut Curry soup. Wow. Check out the close up of Melissa’s tattoo here!

I’ll be writing a full blog on our raw restaurant visits soon (including Cilantro Live! in San Diego)…complete with food photos, of course! Stay tuned!

    hi – just found your site, and am going to do the smoothie a day – but have a quick question – can the greens be frozen? We live in southern ontario and are putting in a massive garden to grow most of our own food – and I would like to be able to freeze the greens – that should be ok, eh? I have frozen fruit smoothies all the time, so i feel a bit like a geek asking if i can freeze the greens – but want to make sure anyway! THANKS

    I found your site google-searching for a recipe for lentil dahl, which I’m making right now. A lot of great-looking recipes on your site, I’ll definitely be back!

    Hi Sara.
    I was reading my NY Times online today when I saw this article that includes you and your family:

    You are a girl after my own heart! I found your site on Emily Falconbridge’s site (I am an avid reader). It is a complete joy to find someone who delights in God’s creation just as much as I do and shares so many of the same values. This food blog rocks my socks. I am not a vegetarian, but we eat very little meat… so I am going to start trying your recipes out *one by one*. ๐Ÿ™‚ My hubbie and I own a natural health centre and are heading for CA this fall with our 6 yr old (she’ll be 7 by then), to do some business stuff. I am seriously excited about trying out the raw food cafes that you featured. I have also been inspired to spend the day in my kitchen making loads of goodies. Blessings to you and your sweet family! May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your face…

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

โ€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.โ€ โ€“ Ralph Waldo Emerson
