Let’s see if we can make this a regular occurrence… These are a few of my favorite things.
Not Just Coffee – If you’ve ever visited Charlotte, odds are locals have directed you to Not Just Coffee. I freaking love this almond milk swirl in front of the swirled grain of the wood at their Atherton Mill location.
Sunflour Baking Co. – Nick loves their breakfast sandwiches (on a croissant, always) so we like to pop in here every once in a while. I tried a vegan seed bar for the first time last week and LOVED it. Nick’s assessment: “Tastes like seeds.” Sounds about right.
Freshii – I like Freshii 1) because it’s inside Charlotte’s network of indoor skywalks (called Overstreet Mall) so I don’t have to step foot outside in the winter and 2) because they’re generous with toppings and I can create whatever you want. This is a quinoa bowl with beets, carrots, celery, red peppers, cucumbers, tofu, walnuts and olive oil and lemon juice for dressing.
Minimalist Baker’s banana muffins – I made these super simple 1-bowl banana muffins last week (without the crumb topping) and they are excellent.
That’s it from me. The city of Charlotte is currently snowed in so I’m trying not to lose my mind trapped inside my house this weekend.
