Health in a Hurry is close to my heart. The owner Sue, besides creating such a gorgeous variety of take-out vegetarian/raw/vegan/gluten-free dishes, is one of the most open-minded, understanding, loving, fun, generous, brightly wise, inspiring, entrepreneurial people i know. She has created a deliciously colorful array of foods that support healthy specialty diets, including veggies from her seasonal harvests straight from her garden, offers healthy cooking and gardening classes, catering AND knows just about everyone in town. Sue has a knack for enlightening the hidden talents of others while she humbly works/plays at her restaurant of love offerings. She always has time to laugh, listen, sing and spread joy. You can taste her energy and the love of Nadia and Latifah who have been making the food mouth watering for 6 years. Health in a Hurry is a radiant gem in the middle of the bustling town of fairfield i can always count on. I can pick up a fast meal, but i find myself slowing down to taste the love in every bite. This place has soul and it's in the dedication and connection with nature and open spirituality shared amongst Sue and the Health in a Hurry community. In my experience, Health in a Hurry has transformed the town of fairfield creating a happy healthy backbone to the community and of course, amazing vegetarian cuisine, to go. The more we evolve, the more McDonalds will be replaced with Health in a Hurrys.

Tucked Away

Posted on 08 / 31 / 2010

Health in a Hurry is one healthy shop that does not have location in it's favor. It is not on the main strip, not even on a side street. It is behind a travel agency and tucked around in a corner. When you finally get to it, you feel like you found a treasure. But do not get me wrong as a foreigner, it was hard for me to find, but the entire time I was there, Health in a Hurry had a nice flow of customers. The place is a little tight, but the customer is awesome. They have a wide variety of entries and about 90% vegan menu. They also have a few desserts, which is my speciality.

Apple- Ginger muffin
It should have been Ginger-Apple Muffin. The ginger was so strong and powerful. Gross. It made the muffin so spicy and there was very little apple to balance it out. I do not know how you all like your muffins, but I like mine pretty sweet and moist. It was very hard on the outside, and sometimes that means that the muffin is moist on the inside. NOT. It was so crumbly and yuck. I really do not have much to say about this muffin, because it was nothing to talk about.

Good food, and amazingly nice staff. You get one free small container on your first visit.

I highly recommend the latina stew, curry and wraps were also very good. Muffins were just okay...

Right off of I-95, so if you're driving to or from New York it's a great stop for a snack or lunch
