Edible Arrangements' more than 50 fresh, artful fruit baskets combine the aesthetic elements and emotive properties of floral arrangements with the juicy edibility of fruit. The sweetery's designers stud the Delicious Daisy, a bouquet of sliced honeydew, pineapple, and cantaloupe, with strawberries and strings of grapes that can double as a 25th-anniversary gift for a Smucker's jam heiress ($35). Decadent, gluten-free layers of white and semisweet chocolate coat fruit in a 12-piece box of hand-dipped strawberries and bananas ($25). Customers can also put today's Groupon toward a larger centerpiece, such as the Melon Delight, a decorative spray of watermelon wedges, pineapple daisies, cantaloupe, honeydew, grapes, and double-dipped bananas sprouting from a watering can ($76). The preservative-free treats are all handcrafted at the apex of freshness, readying hand-dipped dainties to be hand-shoved into eagerly awaiting mouths.
The Mona Lisa Italian Deli and Restaurant sits in a low, white building on a corner along the northern swath of San Diego’s Little Italy. The entrance is adorned with the smiling visage of Leonardo Da Vinci’s muse, and many other versions grace the walls of the restaurant alongside vintage photographs of the Brunetto family, who owns the shop. If a relaxed, sit-down meal isn’t possible, a generous selection of daily eats are available from the adjoining quick-serve deli space. DIY chefs will be inspired by the variety of pastas, sauces, oils, fresh ingredients and beverages that fill the deli from floor to ceiling, while those dining in can expect wood-paneled walls, simple tables and long bench seating that runs along a far wall.

Bins of olives bobbing in their brine. Slabs of lamb and links of sausages hanging behind a butcher counter. Fragrant rows of spices, chutneys, and salads. Beyond the camel mural that tops the façade of Mid East Market, shoppers find exotic ingredients needed to craft delicious dinners and stock their home pantries. One customer favorite is the store's signature, homemade garlic spread, which shoppers like to haul home by the tub or oil drum.

Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
