Green Wave: Real food in Fort Lauderdale

I just have to make this quick post from the Ft. Lauderdale airport to tell you about the most amazing raw burrito I just enjoyed immensely. There’s a place in Plantation (suburb of Ft. Lauderdale) called Green Wave, a raw foods, vegan restaurant that serves such yummy food that it’s unbelievable!

First of all, it reminds me of California, my home. Secondly, the food is fresh, organic, delicious, and yes, super duper healthful as an added bonus. I don’t eat raw/vegan too often, although I like it well enough. I had lunch at Green Wave today–intentionally–to nourish me well before a long flight cross country. I also took a to-go burrito, different than any burrito I’ve had before and just finished savoring the incredible textures, flavors, and colors with each bite. I board the plane in less than an hour, and I am well-fed, satiated, and am practically vibrating with all the food energy!

Stop by Green Wave next time you’re in SoFL. Their contact info is in the above link. It’s time to try something different, something real!

Robin Recommends…Grass Valley Grains

Grass Valley Grains

Services: Grass Valley Grains is a one-man farming and milling operation, founded by Reed Hamilton, a 25-year resident of Nevada County. Reed uses organic methods and materials to grow grain crops on a fifth-generation farm in Wheatland, California, where there is abundant flat land. He turns the grains into flour or meal using his own stone mill in Grass Valley.

Reed founded Grass Valley Grains as a way to provide a source of wholesome, locally grown grain and grain products to local consumers. Reed’s choice to grow grains comes from having grown up on a grain farm and because he loves bread, which he believes is such an elemental food! Reed is committed to growing food in a way that builds the soil and produces nutritious crops without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. He wants to educate people about the properties of what they eat and the many grain crops that are available besides wheat, and wants his customers to be a community of friends who share an understanding of what it takes to produce this food.

Robin’s Thoughts: Grass Valley Grains is an asset to our community and example of the commitment to quality, organic food that provides health benefits to our bodies as well as to the planet. The variety of grains that Reed grows, wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, beans, teff, and amaranth, can be milled into flour or meal, or they can be used whole or cracked.

Reed sells grains, flour, and meal by phone for individual orders, and through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Soon, web sales will be available. Several local restaurants use the grains and flours from Grass Valley Grains as a staple ingredient of the healthful and delicious meals that are served.

"With you guiding me through the HeartMatters program, I was able to achieve a level of physical fitness that made regular and focused exercise feel more like a natural part of my day. I had slipped into a malaise that meant exercise could be ‘put aside’ for work or other important activities. Getting past this is a subtle but powerful accomplishment.

I really enjoyed playing and exercising with you outdoors (my preferred MO for our time together). The joy you bring to your work is wonderful. This flexibility put a kind of structure into my day that helped me ‘choose’ again – showed me how to take back some control of my schedule for important things like meditation and exercise.  It was also part of my journey of re-learning how to say NO to things. This represents additional forward movement for me.

Thanks Robin – I have really benefited from your work in more ways than just the obvious fitter, leaner, stronger me."
