Veg Fast Food Option: Freshii
Freshii, the Canadian-based franchise, has a goal: to provide fresh, nutritious meals for people on the go. Though some dishes do include meat, Freshii offers plenty of vegetarian and vegan meals on their menu of soups, bowls, wraps, and salads.
You can buy breakfast, lunch, and dinner in any one of their locations in 75 cities in 15 countries. Their breakfast burritos, oatmeals, and Greek yogurt parfaits will get your morning off to a good start.
Salads and wraps include options like Ninja, with spinach, romaine, cabbage, edamame, carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, crispy wontons, and sesame dressing — you can add tofu if you wish. You can also include tofu in a variety of bowls, such as the Mediterranean — half quinoa and half salad greens, tomatoes, cilantro, almonds, cucumber, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, olives, and red onions. If no set menu item catches your eye, you can create your own salad, wrap, or a bowl with a base and then add any one of many toppings, dressings, or sauces.
If you like food with ethnic flavor, check out their burritos — Tex Mex, Spicy Thai, Baja (pictured above), or Smokehouse. Just because it’s healthy, doesn’t mean you can’t finish with dessert. Freshii’s Low Fat Froyo is a low fat probiotic frozen yogurt — and you can add toppings like green apples, almonds, blueberries, cinnamon, or strawberries.
Wash it all down with a fresh juice or smoothie. The Mighty Detox Juice is made with pineapple, ginger, apple, celery, and cucumber.
Bonus: All packaging used at Freshii is made from eco-friendly materials and is recyclable or biodegradable.
Buy a warrior bowl, and proceeds go towards building gardens and school kitchens in developing countries.
