Well, I recently wrote a post about The Beyond Burger coming to Georgia. I actually didn't know it had even made it to Georgia until people started posting about it online. When I saw that is was at Whole Foods, I had to go check it out. It's one thing to read about it, but I figured I might as well experience it for myself. The company's website says it is sold in the meat section, but when I purchased it at Whole Foods, it was in the plant based food section...nowhere near the meat. But anyway...
I was shopping in Whole Foods the other day, and I saw a display for Aunt Dottie's products. I purchased the salad toppers and dressing previously, and they made an amazing vegan salad. Seeing the display again peaked my curiosity, so I ventured over to see what was on the table. The representative described the products as "a salad bar on-the-go." The packaging was attractive, but I wondered how it would taste. When I looked at the product, it reminded me of fruit leather in appearance. My five year-old daughter was with me as well, and she loves fruit leather. She was more than willing to try a sample! We both tried it and liked it, so I purchased a few additional bars to review.
The texture of the bar is similar to fruit leather, but it is not as tough, sticky, or sweet. I tried the beets & greens bar and the cacao & greens bar. They were both a hit, and my daughter loved them both so that was a plus as well. I am always looking for wholesome, kid-friendly vegan snacks, too!
Beets & Greens
The beets and greens bar contains organic beet juice, organic apples, organic strawberries, organic carrots, organic spinach, organic cashews, organic beets, organic almonds, organic dates, lemon juice, organic kale, chia seeds, and spices.
Cacao & Greens
The cacao and greens bar contains organic apples, organic almonds, organic spinach, organic carrots, organic dates, chia seeds, organic cacao, and spices.
Overall, I am very impressed with the bars. There are nearly two servings of veggies per serving, no added sugars, and they are non-GMO, plant based, gluten free, and all natural. They were $1.99 per bar when I purchased them, and you can buy a box of bars or individuals bars.
Thank you, Aunt Dottie's for another delicious, kid-approved product!
In the quest to find amazing vegan food, last weekend I visited Clean Eatz in Alpharetta for the first time. Clean Eatz cafe serves a menu that "accommodates all levels of clean eaters with the standards of (1) low calories, (2) low fat, (3) no sugar, (4) no added sodium, and (5) affordable." The menu has a great variety of items like wraps, bowls, salads, and burgers. I was very pleased to see that they offer organic tofu as a meat substitute.
In addition to the healthy menu, the cafe provides a positive, family-friendly and motivating environment as well. I absolutely love all the quotes on the walls!
After looking at the menu, I finally decided to order the black bean burger and the buffalo cauliflower. I am so glad I did! I love a great vegan burger, and this burger is well seasoned and packed with flavor. The buffalo cauliflower is tender, spicy, and absolutely delicious. The portions here are filling, and I definitely will be back soon.
If you're looking for a new place that offers a menu with quality vegan options, friendly and helpful staff, and a nice environment, then you absolutely must visit Clean Eatz Alpharetta!
