The Soul Salad

For dinner I went to Mom, which shares a space with Pearl Yoga and seems very health conscious and mindfully prepared. All of the food is organic, wholesome, and natural. They offer many different bowls, but the size of the bowl is huge, and I didn’t want a ton of grain after that burger! The Soul Salad has spinach, chipotle tempeh, slow-roasted tomatoes, and avocado, sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds. The dressing was a garlic tahini with red chili vinagrette. I am a fan of meal salads, and this one was very filling.

The drink was a strawberry basil lemonade. I would never have thought to add basil to strawberry lemonade, but it was awesome and refreshing, and I would go back for another one.

I went back to Fredfor breakfast on Friday morning and had their most popular oatmeal bowl, the Rogue Oatmeal.  This is made with peanut butter and cacao nibs with bananas throughout.  It is made to order, which takes a bit longer, but I appreciated the freshness of the meal.  They added the hemp seed at my request.  Again, this was a very filing meal, and if they offered half sizes, that would have been more appropriate for me.  I had a coconut milk apple cider with it, which was warming, sweet and homemade.
