I thought I'd let you know we went to Green on Friday night; it was pretty good, and judging by the steady flow of customers, there are a lot of fans in the Phoenix area! I ordered the Mozzarrella Burger, and DH ordered the Kung Pao Tofu, which was pretty brave of him, since he doesn't always like how tofu is prepared. They were both tasty, and the atmosphere was fun and funky, but I have to say I like Pomegranate Cafe even more, based on my one visit there. I hope you can check it out next time you're in the area :-)
I'm getting close to finishing reading Eat to Live, and am really enjoying focusing on eating more what's good for me than avoiding what isn't. I am trying to eat as many greens, veggies, and fruits as I can, and trying to incorporate more beans into my diet. Of course I'm not doing meat or dairy, but also trying to make sure I don't over do even the healthy whole grains and breads. I feel good! I feel lighter, more energetic, and I actually have woken up before the alarm the past few days, a minor miracle!
My next book to read is Vegan For Life, by Jack Norris and Virginia Messina, which was highly recommended by someone else on Veg People. It looks like it has a lot of practical hints for how to do this vegan thing, which I really need.
I hope you all have a great weekend, and as always, I'm so thankful for your advice and encouragement as I embrace the plant-based lifestyle.
