Restaurant recommendation for Okie folks...

For dinner tonight I was blessed with the presence of a dear friend who recently moved back to Oklahoma City from Houston. Not only was her company much needed and appreciated- and not to mention missed!- but she restored my faith in non-vegans who are open-minded and easy to talk to about my new lifestyle.  Lots of questions- but in a non-confrontational, I'm just curious kind of way. When we discussed dinner, she had no qualms about eating somewhere options would be available to me, and we decided on Coolgreens, a make your own salad and wrap place.  The food was healthy, fresh, and there were tons of options to choose from for meat eaters and veg heads alike.  You start off choosing a wrap or salad, then you get to add a type of lettuce/salad mix, 3 fruit/veggie toppings, 1 crunch (think croutons, chow mein noodles, nuts) topping, 1 protein, and your choice of dressing.  I decided on a whole wheat wrap with spinach, edamame, sliced carrots, mushrooms, tofu, almonds, and a ginger and sesame vinaigrette. It was delicious! 

Looking forward to the weekend- good night!
