Bianca and I have a diet made up of mostly meat. We love a good steak! The truth is, we don't eat enough fruits and vegetables and even though we make lots of plans to go healthy, we always fail.
When we heard that a new vegan eatery and juicery opened in our neighborhood, we couldn't be more pleased! We're not turning vegan just yet, but we're happy that there's a convenient place to go for some healthier choices.
Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes all animal derived ingredients such as eggs, dairy products and meat. A vegan diet is made up of grains, beans, legumes, vegetables and fruits. We know that there are many benefits to this type of diet and we were excited to try out the different dishes that Green Bar has to offer.
Green Bar's menu choices include salads, snacks, sandwiches, and wraps made with delicious, satisfying fillings. You won't even miss the meat because they use a vegan alternative called seitan - a satisfying veggie meat derived from the protein portion of wheat. Who knew?
One of our favorites is this Cuban Burrito that's filled with red rice, black beans, fried plantains, seitan sausage, pico de gallo, and chimichurri sauce that's served warm by the grill.
This seitan sandwich is inspired by NYC's finest foodies, and filled with crisp seitan sausage topped with caramelized onions, cashew cream and vegan mayo.
Chocolate, Vanilla and Bourbon flavored cupcakes are made without eggs or dairy.
Green Bar Cafe was born from the shared dream of these three sisters, Michelle Araneta, Jade Santos and Sadara Santos. All vegans and diehard foodies, each recipe they prepare and serve is inspired by their years of travel and dining around the globe, be it in world renowned restaurants, hidden food trucks or hole-in-the-wall cafes.
We really enjoyed our vegan brunch last weekend. Everything we tried was delicious and filling sans the meat. We can't wait to be back for more : )
