Eating My Way To Feeling Better, Thinking Clearly, Looking Younger

A few weeks ago, I had a lunch meeting with an interesting potential client, a chiropractor, healer and book author. He did not eat meat, and ate only raw and/or organic food. I told him I would give him some free PR counsel if he would give me a lesson in getting to know and understand the benefits of his meatless diet. He told me not only would I lose weight, he said that I would think more clearly, feel better and look younger! Awesome. But does it taste good?
We walked (yes walked, how healthy already) to a place in Santa Monica. It’s quite the institution for organic, meatless and raw foodies. I learned the food there is balanced according to Eastern health philosophies and heart-healthy Western nutrition recommendations, and is made from fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, plant proteins and high quality natural condiments. Interesting. But does it taste good?
They serve a 100 percent plant-based menu – no meat, fish, fowl, dairy, eggs, butter, or saturated fats from animals or animal by-products. Tough to swallow from this meat-and-potato girl from the mid-west! Nonetheless, I was still “game” for the culinary adventure. But does it taste good?
We were seated in an upstairs area, and a thin, pale waiter handed us menus. (I thought to myself, if he ate meat, he’d have a rounder, healthier glow to him.)
I ordered their version of nachos, with melted cashew cheese, black beans, Pico de Gallo, tofu sour cream and guacamole. It was so delicious! It tasted just like the traditional version, so exciting. Losing weight, thinking more clearly, looking younger and feeling better never tasted so good.
My potential client ordered a salad, with curly green kale in tahini ginger dressing with cucumber, avocado, duse (aka sea lettuce flakes) and live sauerkraut. Live sauerkraut! I don’t even like dead sauerkraut – a little too over-the-top for me! I am gonna have to work up to that one.
After lunch, my potential client purchased a cookbook for me from the restaurant. What a nice surprise! I assured him I will take it home and work the recipes into my diet. I am certain my husband will never know that the boneless roast chicken breast and green salad we had for Sunday dinner were really sea lettuce flakes and tofu!
