Need greens: Planted in Arroyo Grande is serving up a new gluten-free orange tofu quinoa bowl that is as filling as it is good for you (visit @plantedeatery_ag on Instagram for more craveworthy, healthful ideas, like the Girl Scout smoothie, which tastes like a chocolate mint Girl Scout cookie without all the artificial flavorings and sugar) ... The buzz is only building for new haunt The Vegetable Butcher in SLO, where global flavors collide with seasonal freshness. Maybe that's because there are tons of both vegan and meat options on the ever-changing menu. Peace among carnivores and herbivores, finally! Try the black bean and kale enchiladas and the crispy chicken taco; 712 Marsh St. Δ
