I tried the moose and I like it....

So this morning I ventured out quite early to try out the new Smiling Moose Deli in Evansville.  I got a breakfast sandwich with cream cheese, tomatoes, black pepper, cheese, added a little turkey, and put it on their GF bread and let me just was so delicious!  I was prepared for the food to taste like cardboard but was pleasantly surprised by it's fantastic flavor and taste. 

They also have a large selection of other GF sandwiches and they have loaves of GF bread that you can purchase.  The lady at the counter told me that the deli gets all of their bread from a mother who has two sons who are affected by Celiac's Disease and was tired of their bread tasting like sawdust.  Eventually the mother decided to start baking her own bread and now sells it to the deli.  The deli gets the bread in frozen; they thaw it and it lasts in-home for about a week.  I am so excited to go home tonight and try some grilled cheese sandwiches with it (and I'm sure my boys will be even more excited!). 

Don't like sandwiches?  They also have soups and salads that are GF, complete with a variety of dressings.  Check out their menu online.  Although their environment is not totally GF and airborne contact may occur, for those who can risk it I definitely recommend checking it out.

Have you been to the Smiling Moose Deli?  What was your impression?

The Power of Food

The power of food is exponential.  When you eat food that is processed and full of dyes and chemicals, your body essentially does not know what to do with it.  Our bodies are made to break down food, foods that we grow, foods that grow naturally, foods that are not injected with chemicals and fertilizers and poisons.  

How many times have you or someone you've known began taking a medication only to eventually switch or begin another medication because of the side effects?  Now, how many people do you know have ever had to switch or begin taking a medication because of a reaction to apples?  Or water?  Or lettuce?  Not very many I would bet.

If you go to a restaurant and overeat, most likely within a short time period you will begin to feel the effects of your "food coma".  Now I'm not sure why we choose as a society to eat ourselves into such a state, but nevertheless many of us have found ourselves so engorged that we are uncomfortable, maybe even nauseous, and on the brink of just lying down in the restaurant booth and taking a nap then and there.  I wonder how many times you have ever eaten raw fruit or veggies and felt the same way......

Watch the following trailer and really keep your mind open to the possibilities.  Imagine, you could be in control of your body and your health.
