Food for thought

Lastnight, we took my sister (who's been visiting for the week from Winnipeg) to one of our favorite places to eat - Rawlicious.

I reserved the lovely window seat with the comfy cushions and beautiful wooden table for us to initiate her to this new experience. We shared a number of dishes including the zucchetti pasta with alfredo sauce, the dip platter with chick pea dip, olive tapenade & mango chutney, the veggie-seed crusted pizza with their special tomato pizza sauce and miso-ginger-garlic nut cheese followed by their oh, so dreamy strawberry cheesecake and finally, to sip on, their chocolate nut milk and tropical green beverage full of spinach, kale, parsley, banana, apple, mango, pineapple. (Oh,jeepers, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it all!).

While we were eating, I decided to approach the owner to see if he would be interested in being interviewed for What's Your Story?. He graciously agreed.

Angus shared his touching journey that led to the opening of Rawlicious along with many other anecdotes including his thoughts about consumerism, film suggestions, food politics and his experiences with going raw.

What a solid guy (and awfully nice). I left feeling inspired, humbled and enlightened (not to mention, totally satiated from our delicious meal!).
