Wraps, homemade breads on the menu

MILO Our lives are spent mostly on the run, from home to work and back again, hopefully with
a lunch break fit in somewhere along the line.

With all the clutter and responsibility that fill our days, the food we use for fuel becomes ever more
important, and fried and greasy meals will only get you so far.

Luckily, a restaurant is bringing new and fresh ideas to Milo.

The Red Earth Riverside Cafe, located at 26 Main St. in downtown Milo, offers fresh and wholesome
food with daily specials, putting something unique and different on the menu everyday. Recent specials
have included seafood and shrimp salad and Greek pesto pita pizza. A fresh Maine lobster roll also is found
on the list of specials.

"We believe in healthy and fresh food, not frozen, canned, processed or greasy food," says cook Shelly
Leland.

Red Earth serves a long list of wraps and sandwiches, filled with ham, turkey, chicken and more, plus
all your favorite veggies and spreads. The great salads are big enough for a meal and you may
even bring some home with you !
Healthy, tasty low-carb options are available.

Red Earth is also a bakery, with what owner Andrea Beaudoin calls "the most scrumptious pastries in
town". The bread for the sandwiches is also homemade, as are the wonderful soups.

Diners can pick up a box lunch on their way to the lake or the park, or they can enjoy a meal with a view
from Red Earth's new deck overlooking the river. Inside the cafe is an inviting, comfortable atmosphere
perfect for a relaxing lunch or dinner.

Red Earth offers reserved space for groups or lunch meetings. Catering is also available.

After enjoying a healthy sandwich or salad, check out the gift shop, complete with holistic books, Feng
Shui accessories, paintings, gifts, and organic remedies like all-natural stress relief and a number of other
alternatives to the bottles found in your medicine cabinet.

Beaudoin, who runs the cafe with her husband Paul, also offers massage therapy, polarity therapy and
feng shui consulting from her office above the cafe. Her 90-minute sessions combine focused massage on
specific areas of discomfort, craniosacral and polarity therapy for energetic and physical alignment,
and energy clearing that brings a person to a higher level of clarity, vitality and relaxation.

Red Earth Riverside Cafe is open Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. They
can be reached at 943-2325 or 943-5666 for massage appointments.
