This is not a traditional donut; it gives me the energy to last the entire day.
The roasted eggplants, zucchinis, bell peppers, and cucumbers, along with a red wine vinaigrette that is tangy, are enough to make me forget about the donuts.
Wait. This is a bold-faced Lie. Naturally, I miss the donuts.
It’s fine. These bowls are the bomb.com.
I also developed the bad habit of munching on the cucumbers before eating my bowl.
