Jul 31, 2011 10:12PM
Mequon’s new Fresh Eco Café & Juice Bar provides nutritious drinks and food using local and organic ingredients whenever possible, offering a menu of healthy alternatives to traditional breakfast and lunch options. Patrons can start their day with a Sunrise Oatmeal Smoothie, a mix of oats, banana, strawberry, apple, flax and cinnamon, or the Brazilian Breakfast, a nutritious bowl of açai berries, blueberries, strawberries, banana and granola.
Juices and smoothies are freshly squeezed and blended from real fruits and veggies—no concentrates, preservatives, coloring or sugar are added. Choices include organic wheatgrass, ginger and pomegranate shots; strawberry, basil or mint lemonade; and watermelon juice.
A variety of organic salads, healthy sandwiches and homemade soups are offered daily, with vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options. Raw entrees include lasagna, pasta Alfredo, spaghetti, Thai wraps, pad Thai, veggie Napoleon and more. Prepared from organic nuts, seeds, raw cacao and carob powders, fruits and Himalayan sea salt, the eatery’s raw desserts—including cookies, cakes, puddings and truffles—are gluten- and dairy-free.
