Tasty, healthy food
Posted on 01 / 14 / 2012
I am so happy that I found Pat Greer's Kitchen while visiting Houston. While her resto wasn't closeby to my hotel, I was able to order a handful of dishes through My Fit Foods (although, sadly, I ordered too late to partake in her weekly specials).
First of all, the foods are tasty. My favourite of the bunch was a tie between the Garden burger (what a great side sauce with the meaty patties) and the Pizza Bella. The veggie lasagna was no lasagna at all (although I was prepared for that after reading these reviews) - instead it was a spinach salad topped with grated zucchini and carrots with marinara and cashew cheeze sauces. The curried tomato cup was nice but not heavy on the Indian spices, instead heavier on the raisins. For desserts, the coconut dream pie was incredibly rich and delicious. Again, I was prepared that the carrot cake would be different. And it was: grated carrots with nuts, spices and dates, not resembling any cake at all but still very tasty.
What I loved the most, though, is that the nutritional info is included with every meal and the portions are very reasonable, instead of the inflated sizes you get elsewhere. Everything I tried had between 150-350 calories each, and nicely filling. Not everyone will be filled with a 150 calories of zucchini "lasagna" though.
Anyhow, a great resource for travellers wanting portable, healthy meals. And let's be honest, it can be heard to find any vegan eats in Houston, so this place is a bona fide gem. :)
