Respond to Review of Whole Foods Market - Greenlife Grocery
by chouettes crepes
Review: i'm vegan and i work at greenlife, so i eat there almost every day, usually from the hot bar. there is almost always something nutritious and warm to eat there, but sometimes it's dreadfully disappointing and i wonder who on earth thought it was a good idea to pour an entire bottle of tamari in the kale, or dump a pound of salt into the tofu scramble. i'd recommend taking advantage of the sample cups before committing to any one dish unless you want to get your recommended amount of sodium for the week. they offer two kinds of vegan muffins and usually one kind of vegan cookie. the vegan raspberry muffins rarely have more than 1 raspberry (travesty!) and the blueberry taste healthy, which may or not be your thing. the cookies aren't out-of-this world, but they are fresh-baked and vegan, which is more than the rest of chattanooga can offer. there's also a deli, which sometimes has cool stuff. "the golden bowl," which is a tofu dish, i've heard is very good. other notes: *they also make fresh smoothies and coffee drinks, with soy milk available. *there's a sushi bar, which caters better to meat-eaters, but they do offer veg sushi. *the whole store also offers lots of allergy-friendly items. *you can call before you go to check the menu, which i'd recommend because sometimes there are very few vegan items on the menu of the day. *the fresh fruit at the salad bar is often very good *you can order your own personal sandwich, which is a bit pricey, but also they aren't stingy with the good ingredients. *they have a liquor license, so you can buy beer or wine and drink it inside or outside.
