Mood rings offer convenient color-coded glimpses into our emotional state: red indicates stress, yellow suggests blinding rage, and green means rich in vitamins, cellulose, and fiber. Indulge in delicious food to suit every mood with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of health-conscious fare at Treehugger's Café in Berea.
Treehugger's delivers healthy, creative fare with big taste and a small environmental footprint. Nearly all ingredients used are organic, and produce from local farms is used whenever possible, creating a seasonal specials menu that is free from manufactured meal miscreants such as hormones and chemicals. The sweet potato quinoa burger shines on a pretzel roll with a homemade spicy honey mustard spread and sprouts ($12), while the asparagus cheddar quiche, paired with fresh dill shallot sauce and a side salad or soup ($14), loudly announces it's tasty and healthy ambition. The ahi tuna is kind-heartedly seared and served over wasabi risotto, with cup of soup or salad ($18). Aside from using only compostable and recyclable containers, the funky, laid-back restaurant was designed using as much recyclable material as possible, accounting for the sandwich press made from the reclaimed wooden teeth of George Washington. Treehugger's also boasts a comfy outdoor patio for diners to try out the vegan paella, a chef’s creation of rice, grilled veggies, and fresh herbs combined with soup or salad ($16) while giving thumbs-up to the nature it came from.
Tree Hugger's Cafe
The environmentally conscious chefs at Tree Hugger's Cafe unite locally sourced organic ingredients into healthy, flavorful fare that respects Mother Nature. Every dish on the eco-friendly menu comes free of hormones, pesticides, and plastic fruit, and many are also vegetarian, vegan, raw, or gluten-free. They also serve dishes made with organic beef, chicken, and seafood. Paninis cram fillings such as grilled eggplant and homemade pesto between slices of fresh artisan bread, and burgers mash up such ingredients as organic chicken and feta or sweet potato and quinoa. Breakfast dishes include house-made granola, muffins, new healthy breakfast sandwiches, and a beautiful smoothie menu all with whole fruits and raw veggies. Tree Hugger's Cafe tries to reduce its carbon footprint by using compostable containers, blowing kisses to clouds, and outfitting the café's interior in recycled decor.
