If you live Atlanta do yourself a favor and go check out Full Taste inside the North Dekalb Mall. I had expected it to be good, but I thought it was really good. I spent some time talking to Michael(the General Manager)... he's been a vegan chef for over 30 years. I ordered the reuben combo meal(the combo includes a side, cookie & fruit water). I will be going back regularly! (Only bummer.... they are closed on Saturdays.) They are doing a Summer + Fall menu release party next Sunday, July 21st.

Went to Flower Child this week. I'm a big fan of this place.

If you live in Atlanta do yourself a favor and make your way to the Wrecking Bar Brewpub on Tuesday nights. They post their special vegetarian/vegan menu on their page each Tuesday. I'm always impressed.

One of the most common myths is that eating healthy is expensive. However, this is simply not true and, in fact, it is often less expensive to eat healthfully.

Remember that a peasant’s diet throughout history was often a whole food, plant-based, simple diet. Rich foods, meats, and sugars were typically reserved for the wealthy or royalty. Fortunately, the simple, staple, peasant foods are far healthier.

By eating a wholesome plant-centered diet, you can easily live frugally (and still very deliciously) on plants.

Here are tons of tips on eating healthy on a budget (plus protein, sprouting, hydroponic gardening, and more) in this edition of Rouxbe's Ask the Dietitian: http://bit.ly/2xzpV6O

And more in a blog post: http://bit.ly/X3aIIg

What are your favorite tips to save money while eating healthfully?

One of our own.... Chef Ahki.... is featured on the cover of Creative Loafing Atlanta. $20 dinner.... vegan and she's an Atlanta resident. The recipes look amazing!!!

"I put on for my city"!!! 🙌🏽QUEEN OF THE KITCHEN: Chef Ahki "QUEEN OF THE KITCHEN: Chef Ahki photo JOEFF DAVIS "My first interaction with Sepsenahki Aahkhu, aka plant-based chef to the stars Chef Ahki, was over Instagram. I’d posted a rather comical image on CL’s feed of Ludacris and Mayor Kasim Reed posing with giant scissors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the rapper-turned-restaurateur’s new airport eatery, Chicken+Beer. “Just WTH Atlanta needs,” wrote Chef Ahki, reposting the picture for her 75,000-plus followers. “More chicken and beer as we lead the nation in diabetes and heart disease.” The woman had a point. Georgia consistently ranks among the least-healthy states in America, with chronic, diet-related ailments like heart disease and diabetes as the leading causes of death. And yet, we foodies love celebrating the cholesterol- and sodium-laden victuals that get us there. So I emailed Ahki, asking if she’d be down to meet up for a chat. She not only agreed, but also accepted our long-standing chef's challenge: to cook up a complete meal for four with only $20 or less. In this case, the meal would also be completely vegan, completely healthy, and, according to the chef, completely delicious. (read more at Clatl.com #makeatlantagreenagain #eatwellatl"

Some good information about our favorite topic.... protein! Thank you Plant-Based Dietitian!!!

Protein is not a food group. It is one of three essential macronutrients that provide energy in our diet. All intact foods contain some ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fats.

When we stop searching for "enough protein" and focus on eating health-promoting (whole plant) foods, our entire healthcare system will dramatically change.

Okay, is today *vegan* email news day??? I just got an awesome email from Radial and the subject is "What's Vegan This Week?".... check this out: "Being "all things to all people" is not always the best formula for a successful restaurant; however, we have been able to manage a nice balance over the course of our 17 years in business. Accommodating various diets, lifestyles, allergies and other food- and alcohol-related tastes has been our calling card for many, many years now.

Recently, we made a commitment to refocus on our vegan selections, making it our goal to provide 20-30% of the menu in vegan selections on any given visit. As a reminder, we always have a vegan dish on our brunch menu each weekend, and our soups and crops/sides are usually vegan as well.

This week, we are very excited to share our new Seitan recipe with you! We feel it has much more flavor than our previous recipe and the feedback so far has been very positive. For dinner, we are marinating the new Seitan in Chimichurri and serving it on house-made French bread with our own cashew cheese, arugula, pickled radishes and our vegan mayo (see photo above).

In addition, we are offering a flavorful Rigatoni for dinner with sautéed kale, roasted butternut squash, sun-dried tomatoes and an herbed cold-pressed olive oil. As always, we have our vegan corn fritters, walnut-lentil burger, black bean burger and Asian tofu lettuce cups!"

I just received an email from Sprouts Farmers Market with the following subject: "Can We Get a Kale Yeah?!" It got even better when I opened the email. The attached photo is a screen shot of their website right now and the email says: "Romaine calm, plant-based savings are here! Plant-based really does taste great and now's the time to load up and save 35% OFF* on more than 200 selected items! Delicious and fun alternatives like dairy-free frozen treats, veggie burgers and protein powders make incorporating the nutrition of plants effortless.

Who's interested in learning about solar energy and how it could benefit you and save you money. I am a Solar Field Lead Specialist for Sungevity.inc. We are a top rated solar energy company. I have a small team of individuals who survey neighborhoods in CT,NY,NJ,CA,MD,AZ,NC,VT,DE,CO,MA,NM, and D.C. Not selling anything just searching for homes that qualify for Solar energy. We search for homes and neighborhoods that generate sufficient sunlight to possibly make solar worth researching. Now, our company is a little different than other solar companies. We don't send anyone to your house. We set up a call with one of our Solar Specialists at your convenience to show you how much exactly you could save down to the penny having solar and further educates you on what solar is and how it can benefit your and your home. We also super impose the solar panels on your roof and email you a picture of how the panels would look on your roof. It's just a 10-15 minute phone call with one of our experts that will educate you further on solar, our company and how we can benefit you and save you money on utility costs. You can power your home with green, clean energy and reduce your carbon footprint while saving you money. We also work for businesses too.
