Who would have though McDonald’s also secured a great location by the entrance featuring their new real fruit smoothies – Mango Pineapple, Banana Strawberry or Blueberry Pomegranate.

 

For the healthy at heart, EAT! offered a healthy section with local brands such as Daiya “cheese” stood. Daiya is all natural vegan made from tapioca. The strange part is that it tastes nothing non-cheese like. But I can’t imagine forgoing the natural curds.

 

A Good Portion of nature, scooped carefully for you! These local guys from Richmond features Chick Peas, Mung Beans, Green Lentils, Pistachios, etc…
