While in San Diego, I got a chance to visit Nekter Juice Bar to grab some grub. Preparing for a day of Comic Con, I needed to take the kids for some nourishment. One can easily do six to seven miles in a day. The kids got the Acai bowls. If you are admitted unhip person. Heck, I may be unhip for using the expression, “hip” then let me explain the acai bowl.
It is a Brazilian dish made of frozen and mashed açaí palm fruit. It is served as a smoothie in a bowl or glass, and is commonly topped with granola and banana, and then mixed with other fruits. At the San Diego location, bowls were about $9 each.
As for me I ordered, the vegan ice cream. They offer four choices. I selected the orange twist which sort of reminds you of a creamsicle. The other selections include chocolate haze, monster cookie dough, and peanut butter swirl. Let me warn fellow weight watcher smart points folks that 180 calorie serving is high in smart points. Nevertheless, the handcrafted coconut milk based delight doesn’t disappoint. The vegan ice cream priced between $4 and $6 bucks.
There are locations in Los Angeles, Sherman Oaks, Porter Ranch, Thousand Oaks and more.

Another alternative for meat can be stuffed squash. Here are some more suggestions for an alternative main dish: READ MORE
