Although Dr. Smood is a bit on the pricey side, all of its ingredients and products are incredibly unique, healthy, and fresh. This is an amazing spot if you are looking for a healthy drink, breakfast, or lunch. There are lots of vegan and vegetarian options which is a plus.

Protein Avocado Toast – The Protein Avocado Toast includes avocado, olive oil, hummus, cucumber, chili flakes, Himalayan salt, and black pepper on fresh ancient grain bread.  This is one of the most flavorful and substantial avocado toasts I have had.  The slightly salty, creamy hummus was a great base that complimented the more neutral flavored avocado and cucumber.  The avocado was perfectly fresh, making it smooth and delicious.  The cucumber added an amazing refreshing crunch.  I loved the kick of spice from the chili flakes sprinkled on top.  It brought the avocado toast to the next level.  The bread is made from millet and spelt flours and is deliciously soft and tender. It reminds me of a slightly denser version of ciabatta.  The avocado toast comes in two sizes: a regular or a large.  The regular is one piece of bread, while the large is two.  The large is a great, filling, protein packed vegan meal.  It is delicious for breakfast or lunch.  If you are getting tired of your average avocado toast, Dr. Smood’s stands out with its unique bread and flavors.

Wild Caught Salmon Sandwich – The wild caught salmon sandwich includes wild Pacific smoked salmon, avocado, tomato, vegan mayo, Himalayan salt, and black pepper on fresh ancient grain bread.  The salmon is wonderfully salty and subtly smoky.  The avocado and tomato are fresh and balance out the salty salmon.  The mayonnaise adds a delicious tang.  The bread is soft, tender, and pressed in a panini press, so it has gorgeous grill marks.  This is a fantastic light sandwich with amazingly fresh ingredients.  If you are a smoked salmon lover, you will definitely enjoy this sandwich.  

Lavender Blueberry Latte – The Lavender Blueberry Latte includes blueberry, honey, lemon zest, vanilla extract, dried lavender, and your choice of mylk.  I got it hot with oat mylk.  It was a delicious, light, not too sweet treat.  The oat mylk was a perfect neutral base.  There is the perfect amount of sweet blueberry flavor and floral lavender flavor.  The lemon zest adds a perfect touch of light citrus.  This was a perfect bright and warm drink for a cold rainy day.  Not to mention it is great for your throat and voice!
