One of the biggest struggles of being vegetarian is trying to find a restaurant with vegetarian/vegan-friendly options. In fact, us vegetarians/vegans are forced to do a strategic analysis of menus before going out, which can be especially difficult if you're in a foreign city. If you're living in Alpharetta or just visiting Atlanta, be sure to check out the best restaurants Alpharetta has to offer to vegetarians and vegans!


Sweet Tomatoes

Sweet Tomatoes is definitely one of my go-to places if I'm craving some old-fashioned food. There's something for everybody to eat at this buffet, including my favorites: the Wonton Happiness Salad, Classic Macaroni & Cheese, Brownie Bites and Cheesy Garlic Focaccia.

thai²

If you feel like staying in, ordering takeout from thai² is the way to go. If you're confused about what to eat, some of the best options are Massaman Curry and Pineapple Fried Rice (I promise it's good!).

Jerusalem Bakery & Grill

If you're craving Mediterranean food, stop by and try the Veggie Platter or a Falafel Sandwich. It's local, plentiful and equally delicious.

The Melting Pot

Although it's a bit on the pricey side, the food is totally worth it! The Melting Pot has a cozy atmosphere, so it's perfect for intimate gatherings. Each table has cooktops, and the server will prepare your cheese fondue right in front of you. You can dip bread, veggies and apples in the cheese fondue. Moreover, you will be given fondue forks to cook veggies in a broth of your choice. After finishing your salad, the final course will be chocolate fondue, with foods to dip like fruits, brownies, marshmallows, pecans, etc.

The Cheesecake Factory

Evelyn's Favorite Pasta

Most people aren't aware that The Cheesecake Factory actually offers a good variety of vegan options in their menu. My personal favorites are Avocado Toast and Evelyn's Favorite Pasta without butter or parmesan (pictured above).

Madras Chettinaad

This Indian restaurant offers a wide variety of delicious vegetarian options in the buffet, including Paneer Chili, Gobi Manchurian, Masala Dosa, etc.

Kona Grill

Kona Grill is probably one of the best restaurants in Avalon because of its popular Lifestyle menu which has tasty dishes such as Avocado Egg Rolls, Edamame, Tomato Basil Bisque, Penne Marinara, etc.

Schlotzsky's

If you want to grab a quick bite, order the mouthwatering Caprese Sandwich, Margherita Flatbread or Fresh Veggie Pizza.

Inchin’s Bamboo Garden

This Indo-Chinese restaurant is refreshingly vegan/vegetarian-friendly, with menu items like Sweet Corn Soup, Lettuce Wraps, Cauliflower Manchurian, etc.

Moe's Southwest Grill

Moe's Southwest Grill has many vegan options; all you have to do is substitute tofu for meat and hold the cheese and sour cream or replace them with grilled veggies in tacos, burrito bowls and stacks. Other vegan substitutes include black beans, guacamole, salsa, etc.

Pizza Hut

Many people aren't aware of the fact that Pizza Hut offers vegan crusts like Thin N' Crispy, vegan sauces like Buffalo, and vegan toppings like Roma tomatoes and roasted spinach.

P.F. Chang's

Thai Harvest Curry

P.F. Chang's is one of the most vegan/vegetarian-friendly restaurants on this list; some of the best dishes are vegetarian lettuce wraps (a no-brainer), Thai Harvest Curry (pictured above), Coconut Curry Vegetables, etc.

Taco Bell

Here's another vegan-friendly fast food restaurant! For the delicious Crunchwrap Supreme, I'd recommend removing nacho cheese, seasoned beef and sour cream to substitute black beans. Other great options include the Make It Fresco Bean Burrito, the Power Menu's Veggie Burrito, the Spicy Tostada, etc.

Panera Bread

Greek Salad

Try the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich, Tomato Mozzarella Flatbread, Black Bean Soup, Soba Noodle Broth Bowl with Edamame, Greek Salad (pictured above), etc. I promise you won't regret it!

Chipotle

For salads, bowls, burritos and tacos, you can have vegan ingredients such as brown/white rice, fajita veggies, guacamole, chips and salsa, black/pinto beans, lettuce and organic tofu.

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

751
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
