Prasad- Prasad is one of my go to's every time we play in the great city of Portland. Luckily it was a short walk from the Crystal Ballroom where we played on this last tour. Prasad has great juices, smoothies, breakfast and lunch options but their 'bowls' are the star of the menu. I love the Dragon bowl, which comes with brown rice/quinoa, beans, steamed greens, avocado, sea vegetables, cabbage-apple kimchi, scallions, hemp & sesame seeds and your choice of a homemade sauce. These entrees are so wholesome, nutritious and a solid deal as well at $10.50.

I truly don't think you can go wrong with any of the options at Prasad. This place is a total winner! There are so many great spots in Portland and Prasad no exception! I highly recommend Prasad for the hungry traveler looking for healthy plantbased options in Portland.

Greenleaf Juicing Company- We had a few minutes before soundcheck at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland and after a crazy workout in Seattle in the morning, I was ready for some plantbased nourishment! I was so fortunate to have found Greenleaf. They have a great smoothie/juice menu, quinoa and oatmeal bowls and super good homemade soups as well. 

They are 100% vegan and organic and the prices are really reasonable. The staff is friendly and overall the vibe in there is laid back and not uppity at all (which in my opinion is a downside of some urban juice bars)

I got a veggie juice and a green smoothie which were both on point but the the soup is definitely worth mentioning! I got the Garlic Greens soup- that alone is worth going back for. I highly recommend Greenleaf when in Portland and looking for a some healthy goodness!

 I like there commitment to keeping it real!

Blossoming Lotus- There are many healthy options in Portland and this is a great one. Our show was at The Wonder Ballroom in Northeast Portland and this was about a 20min walk away from the venue. Well worth the short stroll! The place is all vegan and has a nice vibe. Its somewhat upscale (not in price though!) and has a classy, relaxed interior.  I had 2 adventurous plant-based dishes. We shared an appetizer of 'spicy live nachos'. Raw 'live' chips made of nuts and seeds, cashew 'sour cream', pecan 'chorizo', cilantro, avocado and spices. Strange but awesome. My entree was a vegan Bim Bim Bap, which was not your traditional style and was awesome. I actually was convinced by seeing someone at the table next to me and it looked sooo good. My buddy got the Green Bowl, which was also a total winner. Overall, a great look in Portland for healthy eats.
