To everyone that emailed me the other day about recipe testing (I am no longer accepting applications, by the way), I have about 100 emails to go through, so it’s going to take me a few days to get back to you all, let alone pick just 4 or 5 people! I’ll be responding to everyone as soon as I can. Your patience is appreciated!
Having a Café Gratitude here in Kansas City now is awesomely surreal, and the fact that it’s about a 2-minute walk from my apartment makes it all the more exciting! We’ve eaten there several times since it opened in early May. I’m going to show you all the good stuff we’ve eaten there so far, but I won’t go into detail about what’s in each dish. For that, you can feel free to check out their online menu for all the juicy deets!
Our first meal there was on a Saturday morning for brunch, one of the few times it’s not completely packed with people.
We got a couple smoothies to start: I Am Grace and I Am Eternally Blessed.
For our actual meal, I had the I Am Sustained hot quinoa bowl and Matt had the I Am Bonita Mexican dish, both from their breakfast menu.
A couple weeks ago, Matt and I took my friend Sarah to CG for the first time. We started with the I Am Honoring live/raw nachos.
Matt also had an I Am Cool mint chip shake.
Sarah enjoyed the I Am Creative raw pizza.
Matt tried the I Am Trusting tamales.
I had a simple I Am Grateful bean/grain/green bowl.
The very next night, we brought Matt’s friend Rachelle to CG. We all shared the I Am Comforted potatoes to start.
Matt and I shared the very interesting (and tasty!) I Am Immortal elixir.
Rachelle was adventurous and tried the I Am Terrific pad thai kelp noodles.
Matt ate the I Am Magical veggie burger.
Finally, I chowed down on the I Am Transformed tacos.
Again, before you comment asking “What’s in the I Am _____?” check out their online menu!
It’s been nice having my diet restrictions loosened up for the month of June, as you can tell. In my next post I’ll show you a whole bunch of other goodies I enjoyed this month.
Stay cool out there!
