Evolution Fresh! That says it all. A wonderful food and beverage concept where their food selection has “evolved” and everything is “fresh”.
I’m hardly a health nut, but I believe that my out of home food selections should be more than what can be purchased through the window of my car. But until recently, it’s been difficult to find “healthy” snack, food and beverage items while on the run.
Introducing Evolution Fresh. I’ve had the opportunity to visit their Bellevue (Bellevue Square’s The Lodge) and Seattle (University Village) stores and I must say that I was impressed.
The environment is inviting. Employees behind the counter are friendly and knowledgeable. The juices on tap delicious. Their food is amazing.
So, what’s the big deal? Well, first of all their juices are juiced using an innovative method called High Pressure Processing (HPP). What that means is their juice retains nutrients and taste. That’s important, because you want your fruit or vegetable juice to provide your body with important phytonutrients, enzymes vitamins and minerals. If it doesn’t, you’re wasting away your calories. Unfortunately, the typical heat pasteurization process kills the good stuff. The HPP of their juices ensures that everything at Evolution Fresh is…fresh! My favorite juice is Sweet Burn, a delicious blend of coconut water, pineapple, organic apple, beet, cayenne and ginger.
More than just a juice bar, Evolution Fresh offers a wonderful selection of food and snack items that I call “calorie worthy”. These foods are low in calories, taste great and offer excellent nutritional value. These are what I enjoy:
Wild Rice Scramble – it’s made to order, so it hasn’t been sitting around. Fantastic, filling and oh so flavorful.
Quinoa, Organic Kale & Butternut Squash Bowl – You can get this hot (simmer) or cold. I think it’s wonderful hot during our cold Seattle winters.
The Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is FANTASTIC. I love it because it’s a great for people on the run.
Evolution Fresh is a perfect go-to for breakfast, lunch, dinner or any time you need something delicious and great for you. You’ll also find smoothies, a grab and go case, handcrafted juices. Check out their menu for all the details.
Run (or bike, jog, swim or if you must – drive) to Evolution Fresh. Your body will thank you.
