A cantaloupe bubble drink is amazingly refreshing for breakfast. It's made with cantaloupe, soy milk, coconut milk and black tapioca pearls. You can find the recipe in my cookbook, The Urban Vegan: 250 Simple, Sumptuous Recipes from Street Cart Favorites to Haute Cuisine.

Sour Worms. The nice folks at SurfSweets sent me some sample candies to try. Not only are their sweets tasty and colorful; many of their products also provide a full serving of vitamin C and a few also contain calcium and iron. This is one candy you can feel good about feeding to your kids – or yourself.
