McFosters Natural Kind Cafe

Check it out guys! I got this new app on my phone that lets me do fun stuff with the pictures. So my husband took me to McFosters today, one of my favorite restaurants in Omaha. I started off with some fresh juice. I got apple/spinach/beet. It was very good, very sweet and a beautiful color.

Here is my husband with his juice. He was kind of forced to get juice by me :) He got celery/beet/apple. He really liked it!

I got the falafel sandwich. I was pretty tasty! It had fresh greens and pickled radish inside with tahini sauce. 

Here is a new kombucha that I tried today. Pretty good flavor. The only disadvantage this brand has compared to Synergy is that not all the ingredients in this one are organic.  I really like kombucha. It makes me feel good after drinking it.

This is all I am having for dinner so far tonight. I am not super hungry, nor am I in the mood to make something. I might have a sandwich later, but for now I am just going to have some pom and blackberries. 
I made this a few days ago but never posted it. I had been craving puppy chow for some reason.

Vegan Puppy Chow

4 cups rice chex
4 cups wheat chex
1 cup vegan chocolate chips 
(my husband bought me carob chips on accident but it turned out ok with them.)
1/2 cup peanut butter (no sugar added)
1 to 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Earth Balance
1 tsp vanilla

Microwave or melt in pot butter, chocolate and peanut butter. Mix in chex. Slowly add powdered sugar and vanilla last. Eat!
