Mood rings offer convenient color-coded glimpses into our emotional state: red indicates stress, yellow suggests blinding rage, and green means rich in vitamins, cellulose, and fiber. Become as stress-free as a cucumber with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of natural and organic vegetarian cuisine at Dharma's Restaurant in Capitola.
Since 1981, Dharma's has used vegetarian and organic ingredients to craft generous portions of classic American fare, authentic Thai dishes, home-style Mexican cuisine, Japanese Miso soups, and a variety of other preservative-free menu items. Sate early-rising appetites with a tofu ranchero breakfast boasting corn tortillas that wrangle up a generous herd of beans, scrambled tofu, guacamole, cheese, and veggies under a Stetson hat of sour cream and salsa ($9.95). Diners can enjoy an array of international entrees, sandwiches, pastas, Mexican eats, and more. Nosh on the burrito bueno, a wheat tortilla filled with beans and brown rice wrapped up with cheese, sour cream, and lettuce ($5.95) while kicking back amid a family-friendly atmosphere. Patrons can also relax on the outdoor patio, imbibe a beer or glass of wine, and finally take a break from roommates who practice living-room skeet shooting.

Burgers, breakfasts, hot dogs, and other classic diner dishes get a vegetarian spin at Dharma's Restaurant. The kitchen staff stocks the pantry with as many organic ingredients as possible, including grains, fresh vegetables, and soy-protein products that have not been genetically modified or ever seen by cows. For breakfast, organic tofu is scrambled with thai curry spices, kalamata olives, or pesto. Whole-wheat buns embrace burgers formed from tempeh or spicy tofu and topped with vegan cheese and soy mayo. Chefs create a map of international flavors by sautéing baked tofu with thai peanut sauce or salsa, or simmering the cubes in curry and serving with papadam. Most items have vegan alternatives available, and a separate menu highlights gluten-free recipes.
