Now that summer is here, we invite you to come in and sample our Salad Bar. It’s available from 11am – 2 pm Monday thru Friday. Everything is always super fresh — especially with our CSA shares from Colby Farms. The sides, such as grilled chicken, fresh salmon, tuna, chicken salad, sweet potato salad & kale, mixed quinoa, harvest grains, tabbouleh, brushchetta, arame, and fresh fruit & citrus yogurt, change daily. We believe in eating food in season, at the peak of its flavor, and stock the salad bar with only the best items.
But we aren’t the only ones who tout the benefits of eating healthy veggies (and some meats). Take it from the experts below and remember to belly up to the [Salad] bar!!
Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
– Michael Pollan, author of four New York Times bestsellers: Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual (2010); In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (2008); The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (2006) and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World (2001).
Ripe vegetables were magic to me. Unharvested, the garden bristled with possibility. I would quicken at the sight of a ripe tomato, sounding its redness from deep amidst the undifferentiated green. To lift a bean plant’s hood of heartshaped leaves and discover a clutch of long slender pods handing underneath could make me catch my breath.
– Michael Pollan
What was paradise, but a garden full of vegetables and herbs and pleasure? Nothing there but delights.
– William Lawson, English agriculturalist and pioneer co-operator
There was an Old Person of Fife,
Who was greatly disgusted with life;
They sang him a ballad,
and fed him on salad,
Which cured that Old Person of Fife.
– Edward Lear, English artist, writer; known for his ‘literary nonsense’ & limericks
