Tassili's Raw Reality Cafe






Another one for the books! Since my diet has become more plant based, I've been experimenting and trying out more vegan and vegetarian spots around Atlanta. Tassili's  Raw Reality Cafe was yet another restaurant that was highly ranked and recommended. I read reviews and heard from some people that the food was bomb!! I'm always skeptical when something is over hyped,but I tried Tassili's out for myself and I thought the food was delicious!

Like the name reads, the foods served at the restaurant are raw. The business specializes and is known for their kale, especially the wraps. I eat kale all the time but the kale at this place is none like I have ever tasted! It is amazing!

Tassili's is located in the historic west end area of ATL. The restaurant which is an exotic looking house is a vibe in itself. The exterior of the place matches the interior. I've been there a few times and the energy is always the same; good music and a friendly staff that always greets everyone as king or queen. I dig that! It's also another black owned business. The owner is Tassili Ma'at, I haven't had a chance to meet her yet but hopefully I can catch her when I go back again. One of Tassili's goals is to help people achieve optimal health. Places like Tassili's  shows that eating healthy doesn't mean tasteless and bland.

Fortunately I've gotten lucky and been able to go to the restaurant without the line being outside the door. I heard on average most people wait over an hour to eat but I really think it depends on what day of the week and time you go. A weekday around 3pm seems to be a good time to avoid the crowds.  

So far I've had the punany wrap and the south of the border wrap. Both are really good but the punany still stands as my fave! It's a spinach wrap filled with kale of your choice (I always choose the mild kale because I can't handle too much heat 😛), soy mayo, avocado, tomato, sweet coconut corn, and karamu couscous. You can get the wraps as a half or whole, but trust me the half is all you need because the portion size is so big!

The south of the border wrap has the essence of a taco without the meat. It's more on the savory side compared to the punany wrap which is sweet.  South of the border is a chilli wrap filled with kale of your choice, black eyed pea hummus, moroccan couscous, avocado and tomato. I heard there is a story behind each wrap. I think the next time I decide to go I will inquire especially about the punany and mandingo wraps 😀.

If you're in Atlanta check out Tassili's even if you're a meat eater.

Is Cheating Inevitable?

When most people think about what it means to cheat in a relationship, they automatically think about having sex with another person outside their relationship; but cheating is so much more than just sex. Have you ever made a strong connection with another person while you were in a relationship to the point that you thought about that person frequently and started to develop feelings for that person? What if it got to the point where you started to lose interest in the person with whom you were in a relationship? Have you ever texted or talked on the phone with someone you were attracted to, someone unknown to your man or woman? A lot of people say they have control over how far they will allow a situation to go, but eventually after spending so much time with another person to whom you are attracted and with whom you have a connection, emotions tend to get involved. I think developing a strong emotional relationship with another person is just as much cheating as having a sexual rel…

Dreams..........

One of my old classmates reached out to me in November and asked me to check out a track called "Dreams." I didn’t get a chance to listen to it until mid-December, but I must say when I finally heard the song I was impressed. Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m an avid music lover, especially when the music has meaning. "Dreams" is without a doubt a song with substance; it definitely speaks to the mind of the conscious thinker. The song sheds light on certain taboo issues in the black community, issues people are reluctant to address. These issues include the constant occurrence of senseless violence and people’s lack of morals and priorities. The verse below which is actually one of my favorite verses on the track speaks on one of those issues:

“We conditioned to the violence…… black and brown riots, to the point that our alliance follows moments of silence, and it’s sad that the people never see the evil…….. so long as the Gucci belt matches the Evisu.”

I Really Wanted To Love The Tupac Movie......

Ya'll I really wanted to love All Eyez On Me.  I wanted all of the years we waited for the movie to be made to be worth it, but I was so disappointed with the outcome. When I saw the low ratings and negative reviews I got a little worried but still decided to see the movie on opening day because I wanted to give the film a chance. About 30 minutes in I felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie! I told myself with the movie being over 2 hours there was still a possibility it could get better and it did slightly..... but that was mainly because of the concert scenes and music.

I honestly thought the movie was wack, rushed (storytelling aspect), corny, and not well written. No disrespect to the production team, writers, and cast but that's just my opinion. It annoys me when some people say you're hating or you are not old enough and that's why you can't appreciate the movie. That's not the case. True enough when Tupac died I was still a kid but as I got older I was…
