Don't know what has been wrong with me lately. Call it "Youth Anxiety", "Coming-of-Aging" or just "taking my Philosophy class to seriously"...I'm definetely going through something.
I don't know anything about myself anymore, why do I even blog? Does it even matter? What should I eat? Sometimes thinking about food drains all the energy out of me because I can't "discover myself". Meat or no meat? Care about quality of food or not care? 100% raw, organic vegan or young, wreckless slopsucker? Ugh!%!%#@$!*!!! It drives me crazy!
Well, at least I found a little grounding. In my quest--being at the new mega Whole Foods half the time buying pricy raw food because of my neurotic mind--I ran into the owner of Leaf Cuisine
, Mr. Rod Rotondi. Leaf Cuisine is a restaurant that serves affordable 100% raw, vegan GREAT TASTING FOOD, nothing coming close to "cardboard", and also has some pre-made stuff available at some markets. Collard Green Wraps (raw ultra-green burritos, so you can get a picture) with unexpected pungent, spicy flavors startling you as you chew, an energizing Kickin' Kale Salad because of its potent alkalinity. He even has his take on Lasagna, brownies...all the usual comforts.
"[Food] is not a religion, it's not something that should make you feel bad"
... thanks Rod.
Oh, and kudos to that guy from Foodology as well, their stuff also deserves an honorable mention if you have want sweetly savory raw taquitos, ravioli, burgers, dolmas, tostadas...just about anything. Also, thank you to that Tea girl if you ever get around to reading this .
