Most people prefer the smoothie—which turns fruits into irresistibly silky beverages—over its competitor, the roughie, which transforms fruits into hardened criminals. Go the smooth route with today’s Groupon to Natural Selection in Arcadia. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get a meal for two (a $24.40 total value), which includes:
- Two wraps with sides (a $16.50 value)
- Two 16-ounce smoothies (a $7.90 value)<p>
- For $20, you get $40 worth of catering.<p>
At Natural Selection, organic, in-season produce curls up in seven different wraps that are draped in unprocessed dressings. The thai wrap decorates grilled chicken breast with cucumber salad and a homemade peanut sauce approved by George Washington Carver’s copyright lawyers, and the pesto wrap melds the chicken patty with feta cheese, cilantro, and homemade pesto sauce. Diners can sub in a vegetarian patty in any of the chicken wraps, all of which arrive with a choice of vegan soup, salad, or fruit. Fresh fruit and juices power five smoothies, which come in create-your-own varieties or combinations such as Peach Oomph’s frozen yogurt and mango and Tropical Sensation’s banana, mango, and peach.
Natural Selection’s catering service stacks any of the restaurant’s wraps into trays of six ($41.95), which can be paired with 10 chicken spring rolls ($24.95) that leap nimbly from fingers to mouths. A special kids’ party menu supplies PB&J sandwiches and fruit for 10 ($29.95) so that little ones don’t start gnawing on the presents out of hunger.
