EAT: Laughing Planet Cafe

As a vegetarian, I eat a lot of burritos. The protein-rich mixture of beans, rice and cheese is a filling, easy and affordable way to subsist. Although Portland has a lot of opportunities to gorge on these rolled up food cartridges, few make it a healthy experience. Not the case at Laughing Planet Café, a locally-owned series (not quite a chain) of eateries. Here, ingredients are almost all organic, definitely fresh and downright flavorful. You can develop your own creation or choose from an impressive roster of preconceived configurations, such as the grilled veggie burrito made with brown rice, black beans and perfectly charcoaled garden delights. Also try the freshly-squeezed juices, fruit smoothies, salads, soups and "bowls," featuring hearty blends of vegetables, grains such as quinoa and special sauces. No matter what you order here, you will leave feeling full, but energized by eating green.
(By the way, if you hail from Bloomington, Indiana, this is the same Laughing Planet Café you loved there as well.)
