My Favorite Lunch ~ The Power Bowl @ b.good

Power Bowl

Usually I bring my lunch to work. But once a week or so, I’ll splurge and buy something. Recently I have found a new favorite meal for lunch.

If you’re looking for a lunch that is healthy and tastes amazing too, then I recommend the Power Bowl at B.Good.

I go to the location on Summer Street in Boston, but they have places all over the city. After looking at their website, I see that they are not only in other parts of Massachusetts and New England; B.Good is also in North Carolina, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Back to the Power Bowl. It’s made of kale, local egg, lentils, carrots, brussels sprouts, crunchy chickpeas, pepitas, and tomato vinaigrette. I cannot tell you how much I love this lunch! The textures and flavors mix perfectly together and I feel like I am definitely getting in a good deal of my vegetables for the day.

With taxes, the cost is a little over ten dollars, so it’s a bit pricey for my budget. But I think it’s worth it for a treat. Hope you’ll give it a try if you get the chance!

Looking at the menu, I realize that they have many other items that I’d like to try as well. Like a veggie burger, sweet potato fries and milk shake. Maybe next time!

Farmers Market: Copley Square in Boston

Copley Square Water Fountain

Recently, I was in Copley Square. I thought I’d share some pictures. Above, I was facing Boylston Street looking at the fountain.

Here, I was standing on the steps of the Boston Public Library looking down Newbury Street.

I was returning a library book and happened to be there at the right time to stroll around the Copley Square Farmers Market.

I was tempted by the rainbow carrots, but already had carrots at home, so I decided not to get them. When I saw the golden beets, I couldn’t resist. As a child, I hated beets. But over the past few years, I’ve started to warm up to them.

Last night, I roasted the golden beets. I drizzled olive oil on them. Then sprinkled some sea salt and black pepperCopley Square farmers market beets and carrots

I used the beet greens and walnuts to make a pesto. Then I spread the pesto on puff pastry, added some sliced red onions and the roasted beets on top.  A new vegetable tart! It was really good and G loved it!

He’s been sick the past few days, so I’ve been a bit worried. His temperature is finally getting close to normal and he seems to be on the mend. I have no proof, but maybe it was the golden beets.
