Americans have finally begun to embrace organic produce, turning away from their inorganic former diets of wireless 4G zucchini and clockwork oranges. Follow their healthy lead and bite into a wholesome meal real horrorshow with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of organic salads, wraps, sandwiches, juices, and more at Green Light Cuisine in Pelham Parkway.
A preliminary e-visit to Green Light Cuisine's website reveals a plethora of fresh, organic entrees, sides, drinks, and specialty edibles. Master both rising and shining with a breakfast platter ($4.50) of two eggs any style; home fries; roast coffee or tea; and a serving of bacon, ham, or sausage. For a liquid meal that succeeds where your taco smoothie failed, order a specialty concoction from Green Light's juice bar, such as classic orange juice ($3) with a shot of fresh-squeezed wheatgrass ($3 for 1 oz.). Heavy-duty hungers can chomp into a gourmet burger such as the blue moon (beef patty topped with blue cheese on a French brioche or whole-wheat bun, with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions, $5.99), while anti-grav companions can stay levitating with a light Tuscan tuna wrap (all-white albacore tuna salad, roma tomatoes, and crispy romaine in a whole-wheat wrap, $6.99).
Vegetarian mad scientists, meanwhile, can assemble their terrifyingly healthy monster at the salad bar, or leave it to the experts with a specialty espinaca salad ($5.99). A dessert of tres leches cake ($3.50) or honey-drizzled yogurt parfait ($4) will keep things healthy to the end, and make it easier to resist the temptations of pushcart vendors selling Cone-Dogs—the ice-cream cone with a deep-fried hot dog in the center.

- This cozy eatery features savory wraps, toasty paninis, a variety of salads, hot dishes, fruit smoothies, vegetable shakes, even dessert. – Tanyanika Samuels, NY Daily News
- I've been here twice in the last month, and no complaints! This isn't exactly a vegetarian restaurant, it just has some vegetarian options and a fresh juice/smoothie and salad bar. I had the portobello pannini [sic] when I was last there, and it was delicious! – Rina R., Yelp
