Let’s face it: If you’re vegetarian, vegan or just trying to eat healthy, you don’t have many options when it comes to fast food. Usually, the only items on the menu for you are some protein-less salad options or fried sides (i.e., french fries or onion rings). But we’ve got good news for all you veg-heads out there! Amy’s Kitchen, the same brand known for bringing convenience to herbivores with their popular frozen-food line, is debuting its first vegetarian drive thru in the Bay Area this July. Their commitment to providing healthy options in a hurry is extending well beyond those frozen burritos and mac and cheese, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Amy’s menu will feature meatless burgers, chili, pizza, pasta, burritos and salads. All items can be made dairy- or gluten-free as well. Over 95% of the ingredients are organic, and with most items well under the six dollar mark, this is healthy food that everyone can afford. Bye bye, Whole Foods salad bar! We love you, but our bank accounts do not.
Not only is Amy’s Kitchen into making us healthier, but they want to keep the environment healthy too. Their new Rohnert Park location will have seating and decor made of upcycled materials, and every ingredient used is said to be non-GMO. If Amy’s inaugural location is a success, it will be interesting to see where future meat-free (or just healthier??) fast food chains pop up. We’re hoping this new trend takes off for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.
Would you give meat-free fast food a try? Let us know in the comments.
