Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?
Food Truck Extravaganza
Hey Scottsdale -- this is what you're doing for lunch today. Whole Foods Market Raintree is teaming up with the Phoenix Street Food Coalition for their second Food Truck Day. All of your food truck favorites will be hangin' out in the parking lot from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.. Short leash Hot Dogs, Phoenix Cheesesteak Co., Bella Strada, Carte Blanche Tacos, Beet Street, Torched Goodness, Jamburritos, and, of course, Sweet Republic will all be there peddling their gourmet food truck goods. If you haven't tried Sweet Republic's artisan ice cream, we suggest you get your rear-end to the Whole Foods parking lot today and do so.
Need a cool healthy treats for the kiddos? Try this super-easy kid-pleasing idea -- Grape-sicles! Just take plump red (or green) grapes, pop them onto a skewer, stick 'em in the freezer for a couple hours and BAM, Grape-sicles. A perfect alternative to the standard sugar-sicle and great for those of you on that crazy HCG diet.
