少し前『ハッピーベジ』レストランでランチしました。ロス郊外レドンドビーチにあります。 "Happy Veggie Restaurant": I went there for lunch several days ago. It's in Redondo Beach, a Los Angeles suburb.
レドンドビーチ・キングハーバーのサインから1ブロック南、ＰＣＨ沿いアルバートソンマーケットモール内にあります。私の自宅から3分、職場から8分以内の距離です。 It's located inside Albertson's Market Mall, 1 block south of Redondo King Harbor sign on PCH in Redondo Beach. It's 3 minutes from my home and within 8 minutes from my work.
全てベジタリアン。野菜から作られたヘルシーメニュー。ランチスペシャルは月曜から金曜日午前11時から午後2時半まで。ビーガン料理クラスが夕方時々開催される。 They serve Vegetarian dishes. All are made from Veggies and healthy. Lunch Special is available on Monday to Friday from 11 am to 2:30 pm. They have Vegan Cooking Lessons in evenings.
カボチャスープ。日本のカボチャから作ったそう。やさしくまろやかで美味しい。 Pumpkin Soup, made from Japanese Kabocha pumpkin. It was very smooth and tasty.
ランチスペシャル８番野菜カレーマサラと玄米を頼む。ウエイターさんの勘違いで、5番チキンカレーと玄米がでました。このチキンは大豆から作ってあるそう。本物の柔らかい鶏肉のような食感と味がしました。$7.95(玄米は1ドル増し) I ordered Lunch Special #8 Curry Vegetable Masala with Brown Rice, but the waiter mistook it and served me #5 Curry Chicken with Brown Rice. It was Soy Chicken, made of Soy beans, but it was like soft and juicy real Chicken for the texture and the taste. $7.95 (Brown Rice is $1 more).

ここのレビューを読むと、フォースープも絶品だそう。次回はそれを試したいです。 According to the restaurant reviews, their PHO Soup is excellent. I want to try it next time.
The next customer sat at the table right next to me and ordered Lunch Special #8 Curry Vegetable Masala with Brown Rice. This time the waiter served the right one. It had lots of Broccoli, Carrots, and Bamboo Shoots, and it looked delicious. I chatted with that lady, she mentioned she has been avoiding Beef for more than 30 years. I started avoiding Beef 5 years and 3 months ago. She is my mentor in that aspect.
In USA, seventy percent of grains and fifty percent of water are used to feed cattle. Destruction and contamination of environment are caused by raising cattle. If we consume grains, 100 people can survive, but if we try to feed the cattle by the same amount of grains, only 8.4 people can survive. Many lifestyle related diseases are caused by too much Beef consumption. Recently I also learned that Breast cancer and prostate cancer are caused by cow milk and dairy products, and I am trying not to consume cow milk and dairy products. I will attach the links to the reference books below.
No animal products are used here. The mildness of Pumpkin Soup comes from Soy Milk. Chicken and Shrimps are made from Soy, too. It was a mystery--How they can cook dishes so delicious! They offer a cooking class every month on Tuesday evening from 7:30 pm at around $35 per lesson. It's near my house, so I want to take that cooking class one day.
