grazie~

yikes
! ! ! ! !
i cannot believe it's been a month since my last post!!!

i do  apologize for not being reliable & i specially want to thank you to those of you who have raised their brows at me saying "so, you've been slow at updating" because it showed that you care! :)

to show my 'thanks', i would like to begin my journey of "mostly-la" restaurants with cafe gratitude 
(they have few locations in california which can be found here)

with cafe gratitude , it was love at first 'sight' with  their menu that is probably the most leaver and sweet menu ever!  if i get a chance, i would like to just go down the list and try them all...or at least try all the verbs i like ;) 

cafe gratitude on larchmont
love love love their menu! 

at cafe gratitude, you feel healthy

healthy, because it is a 100% organic vegan restaurant that creates gourmet dishes with organic produce from their own farm in vacaville,ca & local farmers
healthy, because you see & be part of beautiful people that are eating good food that is good for your body

but these healthy food don't just stop there because the sea of 'green' plate tastes A-mazing! 
every bite is so fresh & tasty that my friends & i couldn't stop mmm~~~ing & ahh~~~ing the entire meal! 

i am effervescent
-ginger and lemon juice with agave and naturally sparkling water on ice
&
i am grace
-young coconut milk, almond butter, date and vanilla bean smoothie
every detail counts
h20
i am worthy
-kale, beet, celery, apple and ginger juice
i am humble
indian curried lentils over brown rice or quinoa ,with suateed spinach and
 roasted yams,drizzled with a sweet tamarind chutney and spicy mint chutney
i am liberated
creamy hemp seed pesto pasta with kelp noodles, roma tomatoes, green and
kalmata olives and spinach topped with brazil nut parmesan and fresh basil
i am gracious

and brazil nut parmesan drizzled with olive oil and topped with sprouts
i am awesome
herb-cornmeal crusted eggplant parmesan on toasted panini
with marinara sauce, cashew ricotta, sliced tomatoes, arugula and basil
i am awesome
i am rapture - strawberry shortcake
 &
i am irresistible - chocolate coconut cream pie
you can also easily take-out their food

please note that this is a vegan restaurant...
and i am a huge carnivore...
yet this happens to be on one of my favorite restaurant lists! 
so all you meat-lovers, do try it out as it will change your views on vegan/vegetarian restaurants-

i am now happilyfull ♥ 
see you on my next adventure!
