Many people are attracted to the extensive range of flavor options available when purchasing CBD vape pens allowing for a truly customizable experience.

Despite vaping being widely accepted and probably one of the most social ways to enjoy CBD, there are still a few situations where people remain unsure. Flying with CBD is still very much a gray area for many people, made worse by complex variations in the laws between states.

The Role of Diet and Nutrition in Addiction Recovery

Substance use disorder (or SUD; a term that covers both substance abuse and addiction) has profound negative effects not just on a person’s mental health, but also their physical well-being as well. People with severe SUD do not often consider a healthy diet to be a priority. As a result, many people entering rehab also suffer from malnutrition in addition to SUD. 

Diet and nutrition have played a key part in addiction recovery for almost as long as rehabs have existed. Even before we developed our modern understanding of nutrition, most cultures the world over have made connections between one’s diet and their physical state. Virtually all cultures describe certain foods as being beneficial for certain illnesses and conditions, and it wasn’t too great a leap to apply the same thinking when we started treating people suffering from the ravages of alcohol or other substances.

Milagro Opens Today in Trinity Groves

Trinity Groves is a treasure trove of good food, from top-notch Italian to modern Chinese. Soon, the West Dallas dining destination will expand with Milagro, a new taco-focused restaurant from Jesus Carmona, the chef behind the beloved Tacos Mariachi, that is slated to open this month.

Tacos Mariachi opened in 2015 on Singleton Boulevard, just down the street from Trinity Groves, and it quickly drew a loyal crowd of diners—it even drew in Guy Fieri, who featured the show on “Diners, Drive-In and Dives.” Unfortunately, Carmona had to close his restaurant in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, Carmona focused his attention on his Argentinian bistro in the Bishop Arts District, Chimichurri.  Shortly after opening, Carmona was contacted by the Trinity Groves group to relocate the original Tacos Mariachi two blocks down to the new retail space located in Phase Two of the new apartment buildings.

Ocean Prime Still in its Prime

by Joey Stewart photos by Joey Stewart

The last time CraveDFW featured Ocean Prime we showcased the huge Red King Crab legs that had just been flown in from Bristol Bay. As this was over two years ago, we thought it was time to head back and see how it’s keeping up with all the competing seafood spots that have opened in Dallas since that report.

Ocean Prime Uptown is one of sixteen locations across the states and boasts a menu that features items like sushi and poke, indulgent seafood entrees, prime steaks, desserts, signature cocktails, and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list.

The dark, retro dining room is still packed with well-heeled guests, the service is stellar from start to finish, and each dish we tasted was expertly cooked. In short, it hasn’t missed a step. We chose to sit in the more relaxed and bright “Terrace,” which allows for a casual dining experience.
