Organic farmers grow crops by begging trees to bear fruit, sweetly cajoling insects to vamoose, and deploying shadow assassins to destroy hardy weeds. Reward their natural efforts with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of organic fare at Sprouts Cafe, part of the Organic Marketplace in Gastonia.
Sprouts Cafe specially crafts its earth-borne eats from organic and locally grown noshables, serving up a smorgasbord of sandwiches, smoothies, pizzas, and salads. Exercise a slurping muscle by grabbing a blended beverage, such as the Funky Monkey smoothie, a frosty blend of banana and nut butters ($5), or the Zack Attack, with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and a protein-packing punch of hemp ($5). Diners not opposed to chewing may opt for a sit-down sampler platter, replete with hummus, toasted pita, veggies, olives, and feta ($6.50), or share slices of the Cowboy pizza, lassoing tongues around a wheat pita topped with turkey bacon, cheddar, barbecue sauce, and wild bell peppers that have been humanely tamed ($6.50). The mediterranean vegetable wrap ($5.99), veggie burger ($6.50), and homemade pimento cheese ($6.50) give leaf-eaters a fair fare choice, while the clucking ultimate chicken salad ($6.75), and roast beef and swiss melt ($6.75) can satisfy the carnivorous cravings of any inner pitcher plant.
Once brimming with earth-conscious cuisine, diners interested in crafting their own mindful meals can mosey to the Organic Marketplace, which stocks its shelves with organic produce, cereal, crackers, and condiments, as well as ready-made frozen and refrigerated products that feed mouths without filling them with molar-melting preservatives. Satisfied snackers can also check out Organic Marketplace's website for healthy recipe ideas that will make things that seem impossible on an empty stomach, such as skydiving straight into space, slide into the realm of the certain.
