Great Tasting Food That’s Good for You


For several years, I have been searching for restaurants, farmer’s markets, and grocers that have healthy food that taste great.  Because I know that we are what we eat, I started this search knowing it would be a challenge.  Over the past seven or so years, several grocery stores have added healthy food sections, over priced alkaline water and organic selections.  Even Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Sevananda do not satisfy my search.

I was surprised at the high prices at the fresh produce market at the Five Points   MARTA station.  With a different set of vendors at the West End MARTA station, the prices are much more affordable.

For days that I simply do not have time to cook, I need to find good food that is not fried, vegan food that tastes good and is kind to my wallet.


Online and word of mouth searches were painfully slow.  However, I had to persist.  Even on days like yesterday, when I came frustratedly close to going to a drive-through window for chicken fingers.  Just as I stopped at the traffic light at Fairburn Road and Campbellton Road, I saw a restaurant.  Then, I remembered the owner attending an NPU meeting several months ago and inviting us to try his recently opened, Sadiq’s Bistro.  The next thing I knew, my car was pulling into the parking lot.  As I walked in, I was greeted by a nice setting and a warm smile from the waitress.

While browsing the menu, I almost fell off my stool.  To my amazement, most of their entrees are vegan.  Wow!  I did not remember the owner saying they had vegan food.  After ordering the fish bowl with five vegan items, I could not wait to get home to try it.  After taking one bite, my taste buds were immediately excited.  It was simply delicious!!


So, I invite you to try Sadiq’s Bistro for delicious food that is good for you.  Open seven days a week, be sure to go by soon.  Here is the link:

April 4 – Anniversary of MLKJr Assassination

Numerous events were held today in Atlanta to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assasination 50 years ago.  The events included:

1) A short service was held at the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Churchbon Auburn Avenue.

2) Two of MLKJr.’s children, Rev. Bernice King and Martin L. King, III; his sister, Christine King Ferris, and other family members gathered at the King Center.  Together they rang a bell 39 times.  Once for each year he lived.

3) WAOK Radio Station 1380 AM broadcast the Derrick Boazman live from The King Center.

4) The IBEW Union Hall at 501 Pullman Street showed the film, “I Am Man” free to the public.

I heard one of Rose Scott’s series on NPR station, WABE 90.1FM, on MLK,Jr. It looks at April 4, the anniversary of King’s assignation, as more than the bullet that took his life.  She said, ‘We need to know more about the man and the work he did.  King positively impacted lots people of today who never met him.’  Use this link to hear this incredible story packed with incredible interviews from today’s “Closer Look”:
