Raw Food Restaurant

Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time on the computer searching for Raw Food or Vegan/Vegetarian restaurants in the Boston area. I found a Raw Food restaurant only about 10 minutes away from where we were staying! Yippee! I even called to make sure that they were open because a Raw Food restaurant that I found in Boston last year has closed. . . Sad. . . But the Prana Cafe is OPEN!! So hubby called and got directions. It was a little confusing getting there, but we made it. I was going to be sure and take pictures. . . guess what? I FORGOT!!! Ugh! I was so upset with myself as we were leaving.

We decided to share an appetizer, a salad, an entree and then we each had our own dessert. We had the Onion Bread with Olive Tapenade, this was hubby's favorite of the night. then the Best Salad (their version of a Caesar salad) it was BIG and yummy. The Lasagna was very pretty and yummy. A neighboring diner commented to the server that the Lasagna was a little bland, and we agreed. It could have used a bit more Italian seasoning. . .

But all in all the experience was awesome. . . I was just so excited to be actually dining in a place that was dedicated to health!! and hopefully the hubby will see that he can go there and get some healthy yumminess when he comes to Boston on business!

What are you planning?

I never know whether I should say. . . Hi I'm back! Because I doubt anyone missed me, but I'm back!

Actually I'm on vacation with the hubby while he's working, I finally have time to Blog! I might actually update the family blog, that the kids have been bugging me to update.

While we were packing for the trip and getting our mindset for the vacation, hubby asked me "How are we going to eat? You know we're going to be on vacation, and it's going to be hard." It made me think about how much we think about food and how we connect vacationing with "treating" ourselves with food.

So my Question is. . . Do we plan to Succeed? or Do we plan to Fail?

I hope that I plan to succeed while I'm on vacation. It's a challenge to me to find ways to succeed. I'm excited to find restaurants that have raw/vegan options. It's a problem to figure out and I find it challenging to be on vacation and eat right. . . But there are some who plan to fail with the thinking I'm on vacation and there are no options to eating the way I know I should. . .

I hope that we can overcome the ingrained thinking that we're going to Fail. Let's all SUCCEED!!
