The Casa!

Casa De Luz! It's one of Austin's vegan macrobiotic restaurants. They use no salt, no sugar, minimal spices, minimal oil, I know .. doesn't it sound pretty bad? I thought it was too when I first went there - Aug of 2005. Luckily, I got a chance to revisit it when a friend of mine decided to take me there for dinner a few months back. I don't know if it's all the running, the vegan lifestyle or what ... but after that time, I just kept going back there. All the food served there is completely organic and whole grain. They use only vegetables which are in season and locally grown. They have a different menu for every meal. They are kind of pricey at twelve bucks per meal but to me it's totally worth it. Their meal generally includes, a salad, soup, pickle, whole grain, lentils, cooked veggies, and hibiscus tea. They keep tamari and ground up sesame seeds instead of the usual salt and pepper on the tables. They have special meals on Sundays and some other days of the month. I don't think I have ever been there when it isn't packed with people. Huge banner in their kitchen reads - "Nature is our Meal Planner". I fully believe that this food is so nutritious, that when my body lacks something, I crave it. It's not a place I expect everyone to enjoy, but it's definitely a place everyone's body will relish!
