Last week I met my friend Susan in my old neighborhood. When we were trying to figure out a restaurant, she suggested Real Food Daily. The restaurant is literally a block and a half from my old condo so it was easy for me to find.
This is a true plant-based whole food diet restaurant! The menu is an intriguing mix of plant-based food (vegan), local and organic dishes.

She now owns Get Organized, a business that organizes people and businesses in Prescott, AZ.

We got in late, tired and very hungry – bad combination! The fridge was bare and all the frozen entrees would take at least 20 minutes to thaw. Fortunately we have canned food in the pantry and a garden to raid. (more…)

My favorite food next to Italian is Mexican. I am not sure if it is the tomato or the comfort of pasta and tortillas. Whatever it is, I am hooked.
