Blue Sky Cafe Review

blue-sky-cafe

Blue Sky Cafe 3987 Hendersonville Rd Fletcher, NC 28732 We visited the Blue Sky Cafe on a Friday evening with high hopes as it came recommended by a friend who had heard nothing but praise. The full parking lot as we arrived seemed to confirm that this was a good choice for dinner. The cafe is obviously a refurbished fast food restaurant that had undergone a kitschy blue theme inside and out. The “mom and pops” decor had a sort of Bob Marley meets Cape Cod feel to it. The sign on the door stating take a menu and be seated added to the “this is a little different” feel of the experience. Once seated we were quickly greeted by our server and our drinks were promptly delivered. The menu fare of burgers and wraps with entrées of the same caliber were moderately priced. We ordered a plate of onion rings with chipotle sauce for an appetizer, one “black and blue” hamburger plate which was a blackened hamburger topped with blue cheese and one blackened chicken breast plate. For sides, we both chose a Caesar salad and with the chicken I requested their autumn couscous which I was informed was …

i didn't end up on the wrong side of the tracks or anything (which i usually do in my personal life anytime i explore some place new), but i did leave the comfort of the touristy, main streets of downtown asheville and ended up on a smaller, alley-ish-like street behind all the typical places. but i was so in that kind of mood today.

i decided to head back to haywood road today. i freaking loved it there. after i left waking life yesterday, i drove down the entire street and discovered more about this gem of a neighborhood. brick warehouse buildings, cafes, shops, yoga & massage studios, pubs, diners, and other regular businesses. it was like a little downtown in and of itself. so, i just had to go back.

Preventing and Treating Your Pets’ Protein Allergies

Print

Does your dog chew at his tail or feet? Does your cat have a dry, dull coat (or even bald patches) and always seems to be itchy? Are you constantly at the vet for ear infections or digestive issues? Food allergies or insensitivities may be to blame! While grain allergies are the most common seen in dogs, they can, and often do, develop allergies to specific proteins in their diets. Dogs and cats are not born with allergies to specific proteins; they are developed over time by feeding the same ingredients over and over. If a dog is given chicken every day of his life, for example, over time his body may become less equipped to break down those proteins. The body begins to mistakenly identify chicken as a harmful ingredient, and creates defensive antibodies to fight against the food. This is what causes the symptoms that many of us have become familiar with. How can you prevent these allergies from developing? The best way is through a rotational diet, much like our own. Each day, we eat a different assortment of foods than the day before. This helps us to receive a wide variety of nutrients, and of course, …
