When Is Cafe Gratitude Opening In Venice?

When Is Cafe Gratitude Opening In Venice?

Cafe Gratitude Venice IS OPEN!!! since noon, today, July, Tuesday 17th!

We received this award!

Video taken today, at the opening day of Cafe Gratitude Venice. I talked to founder Matthew Engelhart and his son and manager Ryland. We also were witnesses to the first Happy Birthday celebrated in this new location, to the song of Jason Mraz.

Last Update: Opening is expected by next week, July 16th the latest)
07-14-12:  According to a server from the Larchmond Cafe, the opening is imminent! This wekend, mock servings and kitchen running are being done to test how the open is done and to verify that the opening can be done when Cafe Gratitude Venice gets its last permit!!!

07-15-12: We heard that it is very likely Cafe Gratitude Venice is opening tomorrow Monday or Tuesday :-), though it’s not confirmed by official communications from the popular Los Angeles cafe in Larchmond street.

Cafe Gratitude Venice inside: beautiful!

07-16-12:I just called the Larchmond location, and they say: “may be tomorrow”. I “borrowed” this beautiful picture from the Facebook page of Cafe Gratitude:

 

According to Murphy’s Laws, “Everything takes long than it takes”. Hundreds of Cafe Gratitude fans, like me, are eagerly awaiting for the “What are you grateful for?” popular restaurant in LA, to open another one in the west side. The address is 512 Rose Ave, Venice, CA 90291.

About a year and a half ago I asked Terces Engelhart, co founder of Cafe Gratitude along with Matthew Engelhart, if they were planing to open another Cafe Gratitude in the west side of Los Angeles, and she told me “Yes, in Venice”. It was too good to be true, since I live 5 miles from the beach and 10 from Venice! (and my office is about 5 min from the new location:-)

The first date of the long awaited opening we had from Ryland, owner and manager at the LA joint and son of Matthew Engelhart, was May 15. Since then Murphy’s law took over and the opening was moved to June 15.

When we went to visit the Rose and 5th Street corner in Venice last week, we saw that final touches were being added, and last paint coats applied. The new place is bigger than the LA restaurant (2200 sq ft) with the added convenience of a long covered patio for outside sitting, and 42 parking spaces.

Today is June 22 and they were still not able to open the doors to the Venice crowd!

Yesterday we got a word from a server from the LA Cafe, that training was taking place, and the new opening date is imminent. We don’t mind the wait for the new Cafe Gratitude in Venice, Los Angeles, as it is going to be the best restaurant in the area!

    07-07-12: We went for breakfast to Cafe Gratitude LA and asked the server if she had any news about the opening of the Venice Cafe. They are waiting for three permits to be approved and they believe they are going to have the opening party next week or the July 16th the latest!

PS: I just noticed, the Cafe is about five blocks from the place where Rawesome, the raw private membership store, use to be…

Energy Green Smoothies Revisited Part 2: Jeannette von Johnsbach’s Andreas Method

My last “A Green Smoothie a Day, keeps the doctors far away…” post was and is the most visited and successful one of all in the Raw Food Guys blog. Obviously there is a great interest on Green Smoothies, more than I’ve imagined.

I covered a great deal of information, benefits, and some simple recipes, as well as recorded two videos, showing how easy is to make a green smoothie, and a fruit smoothie.

When I thought I covered all there is to talk about green smoothies, I get an email entitled: “Bioavailable Minerals – Drink Up!” 

This incredible and smart article talks about why Minerals are vitally important to the production of cellular energy. For the body to effectively utilize minerals, they have to be in an ionic form.

And gest what, Green Smoothies provides us with those ionized Minerals! 

The article also mention other than Green Smoothie ways to get those precious Minerals in ionic ways.

Our contributor and author on this post, Jeannette von Johnsbach, founder of the Andreas Method, sends in her monthly Food for Thought (TM) Resource for Educated Choices newsletter, an invaluable information on Living Foods, Health, Life, and more very interesting, and educational material, not just to read, but very simple and practical to start using them on the spot!

Jeannette von Johnsbach’s Andreas Method, is a combination of different healing art services, which also include Nutrition based on Living Foods.

I will soon include a video interview with her.

Food for Thought TM Resource for Educated Choices 
Bioavailable Minerals – Drink Up!
by Jeannette von Johnsbach
 
Minerals are vitally important to the production of cellular energy. For the body to effectively utilize minerals, they have to be in an ionic form. 
 
Most mineral supplements on the market are larger than micron sizes, which means they stay in the bloodstream, and eventually may become deposited in various tissue locations. 
 
The roots of plants are designed to break down the soil and absorb angstrom sized mineral particles. When we eat vegetables, or drink their juices, we receive angstrom-sized minerals, which are the key to optimal mineral absorption and vital for our body and spirit to thrive.
 
Juicing frees the nutrients of whole vegetables – especially green leafy vegetables and grasses, such as wheat grass and barley grass – which are an exceptional source of essential minerals, vitamins, chlorophyl, nutritional enzymes, structured water and essential amino acids. 
 
Except when doing a specific juice fast, juices are always an addition to plenty whole raw foods in a daily diet – not a substitute for them, because fiber has an important role of nourishing good bacteria in the gut and cleaning out the intestines like a broom.
 
Fruits do contain a lot of natural sugar, and the fiber slows down the absorption, preventing sugar rushes. Fruit juices are not recommended because of this very reason, as fruit juices have a very straining effect on the pancreas promoting hypoglycemia.
 
The best time to drink fresh pressed juice is on an empty stomach or one hour before eating a meal. Stay clear of pasteurized, store bought juice. 
 
Pure Synergy, which has been the gold standard for superfood blends in decades, is an excellent option when juicing is not an option. 
 
For more information and to order this amazing boost of synergistic whole foods nutrition, please go to www.healdeeply.com.
 
Drink Your Minerals 😉
 
Blessings,
Jeannette von Johnsbach

*Ani Phyo’s definition of health: “My definition of health is a balance across many things. I believe that health is much more than nutrition; obviously the nutrients that we out into our bodies help to fill our brain, and orchestrate the … in our bodies to be healthy and fight disease, to stay strong, to be vibrant, but it’s not just about nutrition, it’s about our state of mind,
I think one thing that is very important is our attitude or gratitude, giving thanks, being happy, and having healthy relationships with friends and family, helping others in our community and giving back.
Also exercise is a very big component and meditation, which is actually exercise and maintenance of the brain, I fell it’s very important stretching with things like yoga.
I thing there are a lot of things in life that needs to be balanced,”
