The menu at Nourish is very short -- they have a veggie burger, quinoa bowl, kombucha, herbal tea, and coffee. Everything on the menu is organic, vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free. Life Foods makes the burgers, buns, condiments, and dressings, which are available at Nourish as packaged products if you want to incorporate them into your meal preparation at home.


I was told that the bun used for the veggie burger is very nutrient-dense, and I wanted something lighter for lunch, so I opted for the quinoa bowl. It consisted of a scoop of quinoa topped with salad greens and a cut-up veggie burger. I requested that avocado and pineapple be added to the dish as well. Normally, this would involve an additional cost, but since the restaurant was still in its soft-opening phase, I wasn't charged for the additional ingredients. I guess the tomato slices must have been thrown in for good measure. It was a tasty and very hearty lunch.




The quinoa bowl also came with a side dish, so I chose the mixed vegetables. They were cooked just the way I like them -- still a little crunchy -- and the seasonings brought out their flavors nicely.




I'm a big kombucha fan, so I had to give their house-made kombucha a try. The masala chai ginger flavor was excellent.




Nourish Health Bar and Café is located at 7433 Greenback Lane, and their phone number is 916-740-6034. The Life Foods website can be found at http://www.lifefoodsinc.com/, and the Nourish Health Bar and Café Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/Nourish-Health-Bar-and-Cafe-NorCal-172153096520567/.

My first attempt was anything but successful. […]
