Little ones can choose from bite-sized pieces of tofu or chicken, as well as avocado, cheese or PB&J. Even babies aren't left out, as The Beet will puree banana, applesauce, avocado or sweet potato. There is a sizeable solids menu for adults, including tempeh tacos, rice bowls and an avocado stuffed with brown rice, veggies and topped with spicy peanut sauce and pesto. The whole family can be happy.
