Summer is here! Tis the season for sunshine, BBQ’s, pool parties, bright, fresh fruits and veggies and a brand new menu. That’s right, our summer menu is here and ready to make its debut!
If you’ve shopped with us for at least a few months, you may have noticed that our menu changes seasonally. Our team of chefs and Dietitians work together for months at a time to craft and test out the perfect recipes for the new season.
Change can be scary for some people, but in this case it’s exciting and highly anticipated. Our seasonal menu changes allow us to bring you new meals made with the most flavorful and nutritious ingredients.
Did you know that eating in-season fruits and vegetables is actually better for your health? Produce that is used in season is more likely to be fresher and contain a higher nutrition value than produce that is out of season. It is also more environmentally friendly by allowing us to support local farming in the St. Louis area.
This menu features bright, juicy peaches, grilled corn, citrus fruits, chimichurri sauce, fresh pico de gallo, and tomatillo salsa. We put a lot of hard work and care into each menu every season. Not only do we care about your health, we care about your taste buds, too! Below are some new menu items you can expect to see this summer:
Peaches & Cream Steel-Cut Oats- Steel-cut oats, coconut milk, peaches, agave
“When I was a kid a big comfort food of mine was peaches and cream oatmeal by Quaker Oats. My dad would feed me that in the morning when he would drop me off with the babysitter at 5am. As I grew up I loved that meal and it brought a lot of comfort. As I learned about nutrition I realized that product was highly processed oats and had a lot of added sugar. I wanted to bring that same wonderful meal to fit-flavors but with slow digesting carbohydrates and less sugar.” -Jillian Tedesco, founder/owner
