As we begin a New Year, many of us are wondering what small things we can do to change our lives in order to live just a little more in tune with Nature. One area that we can change is where we eat when we go out. When we spend $50 to $100 on a meal for two people, we are treating ourselves to a night out that means no dishes, no cooking and usually excellent food. The next time you are going out on a date or just catching up with a friend, look for a restaurant that uses organic ingredients for what is sure to be a completely new and exciting experience.
While many high-end restaurants use organic ingredients as a matter of taste, we’re guessing that the great majority of people (including us) are looking for alternatives to chain restaurants as our budgets don’t allow for the higher-end spots. Obviously chains are going to be looking for the lowest priced option when doing their food purchasing, not the organic or best for you option. While you may find yourself going out of your way to find these new spots, their discovery will be exciting and you’ll also find that the food tastes miles better than that million-calorie Blooming Onion.
