Edible Skinny was recently cleansing in Las Vegas, a mental misnomer if we’ve ever heard one, when we came across the delightfully healthy Greens and Proteins, a “healthy fast food” spot where UFC powerhouses and yogis can dine of craveable feel good food.
With the one-two combo of healthy and flexibility, Greens and Proteins is a modern, family friendly café offering all your favorite foods with a healthy twist. Sandwiches/Wraps, Pizzas, Burgers, Vegan, Raw and Vegetarian-Friendly meals, Smoothies/Juice Bar, and a full HCG diet menu (I had to look this one up, an HCG diet stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It’s a calorie restricted diet that is paired with the HCG hormone, one that’s produced in the placenta of pregnant women).
Call it healthy hedonism, some of Greens and Protein’s most popular items are lighter takes on comfort foods. After a hard core gym work out (conveniently located steps from their Eastern location) it’s great to celebrate with Spiced Tofu Fries that are crisped in heart-healthy grapeseed oil or a 305-calorie Margherita Pizza served on a thin crust dough or vegan lavash. One of G and P’s newest options is their Ostrich Burger, made up of Grilled Ostrich, Alfalfa Sprouts, Low-Fat Cheese, and LTO (aka Lettuce, Tomato, and Onion). And with a total of 354 calories this is a Fourth of July burger that has the distinction of being healthy, delicious, with just a tad on the exotic side.
G and P celebrates choice, along with its locked in flavor profile menu, the restaurant also offers “Build Your Own Custom Meal,” mixing and matching proteins, greens, grains and sauces. This eases the challenge of menu navigation for special dieters, picky eaters or apprehensive first-timers. And for those in need of technology with their Bison Burger the Greens and Proteins iPhone app is available for Download now at the Apple App Store.
So here’s to life being delicious and healthy hedonism in Las Vegas!
