Meatless Monday: Burgers and Ice Cream at Green Bar & Kitchen

Finding an eatery that can please omnivores and herbivores alike ain't an easy task. Add kids to the mix, and anything other than the McDonald's drive-thru might induce a temper tantrum.

But #MeatlessMondays are the ideal time to experiment, and Green Bar & Kitchen makes life easier on everyone. The Fort Lauderdale spot serves up burgers, "mackin" cheese and as of recently, ice cream. It's enough to please the pickiest of eaters (plant-based or otherwise).

In addition to their spicy, flavorful smokehouse veggie burger packed with quinoa, roasted veggies, caramelized onions, bbq sauce and cheese; there's the GBK burger deluxe with quinoa, chickpea, sunflower seeds and chipotle mayo; the chick'n salad sandwich with pea-soy protein, mayo and cranberries; the mackin cheese, zucchini linguine with raw cheddar cheese sauce -- totally recognizable foods that won't scare off a finicky kid or the veggie-averse.

Oh, and their newly introduced dairy-free, nut-free ice cream is impossibly creamy and rich (and Wayne Dyer approved). SO creamy and rich in fact, you'll swear they snuck some cow's milk in there (they didn't). Get it on a brownie for the full experience.

They're also gluten-free. Seriously, this place is hidden healthiness on a plate. The kiddos will never know what hit 'em. Oh, and because today's Meatless Monday is also Cinco de Mayo, they're offering up vegan tacos, nachos and beer.

You can check out their full menu on their website and follow GBK on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
