Cape Cod - need HEALTHY options please.

We are planning a few days on the cape - 2 days in Provincetown and 1 in Hyannis. Any ideas for someone who basically eats a southbeach type diet - no nasty carbs, no sugar. Gluten-free even better. Looking for plain salads, vegetables, baked/grilled seafood - not fried. Anything along those lines. Thanks!

Best farmer's markets/ farm stands?

Are there any (really anywhere in New England) that are really good? Lots of vendors - organic choices - maybe even reasonable prices? I've happened along some farmer's markets that have been pretty useless with less than a half dozen vendors.

Where to find Valrhona chocolate?

I'm looking for Valrhona chocolate somewhere in Southern NH/ Eastern MA. I got a bar somewhere ages ago and can't remember where. Does Whole Foods carry it? Any other places? Thanks.

Where is the best Indian buffet in the Boston area?

Thanks for the info - finally got there today and found the parking lot! The food was scrumptious! What is the difference in the weekday and weekend buffets? Is it just a greater selection? Also to the original question - I agree with The Kebab Factory, Kathmandu Spice and The Pongal in Billerica. All great - with the best naan at the Kebaby Factory.

Best towns for walking AND food?

Love the suggestions - we are leaning towards Rhode Island first since we haven't been in at least a decade. Thanks for the link outlining all the distinctly RI foods - very cool.

Wow, excellent Lobster Roll in Chelmsford, Ma. - Glenview Pub & Grill

My dh is always looking for the perfect lobster roll so we'll be going soon. They don't seem to have a website - any chance there is anything kind of healthy to eat there? Decent salad perhaps?

Best towns for walking AND food?

Looking for your picks for towns/cities in New England that have nice streets for walking, lots of interesting shops and of course great food options. Basically looking for a few daytrips before the summer is over! TIA

Looking for great lobster rolls near Nashua

DH loves lobster rolls (although he hates hot lobster - go figure!). So I'd like to compile a list of must try places within, say a half-hour or so of Nashua so that no matter where we are driving we can fulfill his seafood fantasies! Ideas?

Maplewood Pizza in Nashua??

There was a review of Maplewood Pizza and Seafood in the Nashua Telegraph this week and it looked pretty good. Can anyone who has been there tell me if they have any healthy menu items? Or is it just pizza and fried things? TIA

Golden Bowl in Manchester NH - info?

I finally got around to going to the Golden Bowl today for lunch and it was CLOSED! Are they only open for dinner or are they on vacation? The parking wasn't even plowed. Anyone have the inside scoop? Thanks.

Buffet King, Manchester NH?? Anygood?

Are there a lot of healthy choices here?
