Summertime is for new clean eating ideas. My yoga friend has been telling me to try Cafe Gratitude for months now, and I finally decided to have dinner there Friday night.
It’s a slow moving place, with long wait time (always make reservation) and long serving time, but it’s one of those places where I don’t really mind the wait. The whole place makes me feel like I’m at a spa, and when I’m at a spa, I don’t rush.
The food here is vegan, organic, mostly raw, creative, playful, nutritious and delicious.
The food here makes me feel good and healthy. There is a cold overnight oatmeal I make that makes me feel the same way. At least once a week I wake up early and go on a 5-mile walk/hike with my hubby. In those mornings, I grab the jar of overnight oatmeal I quickly put together the night before and make that the breakfast. It’s cold, filling, healthy, and so refreshing. It is unbelievably quick: 1) pour oats, almond milk, chia seeds, honey and vanilla extract in a mason jar 2) close jar, shake it around like a cocktail, and put in refrigerator. All that’s left is add granola and fruits when served.
