Today I went on an adventure to run a trail race in the SF Bay on Angel Island. (Read my blog about the Angel Island Trail Run here). Because I love food, and have been working on improving my diet to consist of primarily organic, non gmo foods over the past several years, one of my favorite things to do when I go to any new area is to look up local, organic food cafe's.
Today's quest brought me post trail race (in the rain, wind, and mud), to Cafe Del Soul in Mill Valley. YUM! I got the quinoa chipotle dish to go, along with an organic fresh pressed juice called Compassion (carrots, apples, celery, ginger).
What made me smile was not the delicious food that I got, but what was written on the to-go container: "Made with love." Who doesn't want to know that their food, especially food that was made by someone else, was made with love? What a cool concept. It brought up the vibration of the food itself, but also the vibration of me eating it. I felt so much better about eating it knowing that the hands that put it together were doing so with love.
It's something small, yet had a big influence. More restaurants should implement not only writing this on their boxes, but in improving the environment in which the food is made, and above all else, provide better quality, organic, non-gmo food options for us consumers!
