Last week my lovely friend Heidi of "On the Go"-blog was visiting NYC and we got together for some healthy foods in Upper West Side. Heidi is also a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition so of course we picked a restaurant like Candle Cafe. And what do two holistic health coaches start their dinner with: green juice. The Green Goddess had mixed greens, apple, lemon and ginger. Yum! But quite heavy for an appetizer, to be honest :).
For main course Heidi had Avocado-Quinoa Salad that had black beans, jicama, cucumber, radish, pumpkin seeds, field greens and chipotle dressing.
My main course was Seitan Piccata that had creamed spinach, mushrooms, garlic mashed potatoes and white wine - lemon - caper sauce. Absolutely delicious. There was no space for dessert after all, but I hope to come here one day just for dessert. Their Mexican Chocolate Cake sounds amazing... Chocolate sauce, chipotle candied walnuts served with vanilla coconut ice cream.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.
