Most of us eat on the go. It's American culture, run into a store pick something up and walk and eat. These days at least one of our meals is prepared outside of the
Today was one of those days for me. I woke up at 5:45 am and made a cup of oatmeal to start the day before I caught this bus to NYC. By noon when I got off the bus I was starving. (sidebar - the driver on the Megabus was rude, he was speeding down the street and was making hard stops, I told him nicely to low down and he yelled at me "Don't tell him how to drive!" the nerve)
I used to work around the 34th street area and it always amazes me when I'm in the area all the new restaurants that pop up.
I needed something to eat and I was not in the mood for 'junk'. I saw in a distance "Organic to go",
The outside of the store had balloons all over celebrating there grand opening. "WHAT I need to check that out".
I went inside and saw a great selection of food: Organic Moroccan Spiced Orzo, Organic Spicy Sesame - Ginger Thai noodles,and interesting selection of paninis. I had the grilled chicken, artichoke and mozzarella panini made with a seven grain bread. They also had a selection of organic desserts, Fresh & Co. uses only the freshest, highest quality, natural or organic ingredients when ever possible.
My panini and German Chocolate cake came up to about $13, a little pricey, but that NY for you.
Other notables about Fresh & Co.
They support the tri- state area farming community by buying locally grown fruits and vegetables
All of there products are washed with " clean greens" an organic and vegetable wash.
So if we have to eat on the go at least I know there are healthy options out there. Any other places like this in your neighborhood? There is a lot of buzz about eating organic, I get conflicting
articles about it. Maybe we should discuss it in the Gourmet Diva Lounge?
