This is something that I assume exists in places like New York or L.A., but what about elsewhere? I'm not so fortunate where I live =( but do you guys have any local specialty or organic/natural fast food/resturants that you can eat out at?

Here's something that was posted on ClearSkin.net:

This place seems cool, but I was expecting more vegetable dishes. Here's a price list: http://www.onaturals.com/catering.pdf


Oh and here's a couple that wrote a travel book containing Restuarants, Grocery, Co-Ops, and Markets for natural/organic foods. http://www.healthyhighways.com/

We have a Chipotles near my home, but that is all. I wish we had more healthy choices as far as fast food goes.......

I just looked at the healthy highways site. That yochee maker looks interesting lol. I might make one myself and see how it tastes. I like that it seperates the whey from the yogurt. Any thoughts on this SJ?

No unfortunately sad.gif Ever since I moved from the mecca of health food (Santa Fe...L.A. before that) I have been seriously deprived. That place looks really good on the site.

In East London there is a quality organic restaurant / takeaway called Aiman Saada's at Old Spitalfields Market.

Article from The Independent on Slow Food:

http://enjoyment.ind...sp?story=570700
By Arifa Akbar

A pie-and-mash stall at Spitalfields market was yesterday enjoying a brisk trade from those craving a Sunday lunch that can be rustled up in under five minutes and consumed from cardboard cartons just as swiftly.

But only metres away, Aiman Saada's Syrian cuisine is drawing just as many customers who are happy to wait 20 minutes until their mixed mezzes, cous-cous dishes and coffees, made from organic ingredients and bought from local suppliers, are served up.

Mr Saada, who has been at on a quest to slow down harried lunchers at the market, near Liverpool Street in London, for 12 years, finally feels his work has not all been fruitless.

"The culture has dramatically changed and I have many more customers who eat 'slower' now. There was a time when people thought eating organic, fresh, local produce was just 'in fashion', but people have continued to eat this way and more have joined them. I serve people who work in the city and don't have much time to spare so they ask me to have their lunch ready for 12pm. On Sundays, a few customers buy their own organic meat at the market here and we cook it for them for lunch," he said.

Becky Heaton, 21, a student eating at the restaurant, said she abided by the dictim that 'less is more' where non-processed products were concerned: "I buy organic even though I'm a student because I would rather buy less of something that's more expensive if it means it tastes a lot better and is not full of chemicals."

Organic doesn't necessarily mean healthy. I have a Chipotle near me, but I'm on a no dairy, no iodine, low glycemic diet, so I can't eat there as often as I would like to

Where I live, most mexican food is what I'm able to eat, so Chipotle's sounds realy good.

As for the Yochee, very interesting concept, let me know if you get one Lumas ;-)

It's hard to even find organic food in supermarkets around here, let alone fast food places. I know no one around here who eats organic. It sucks. shock.gif
