Frequently asked questions
Does eating healthy mean my food lacks flavor?
NO. As a matter of fact, healthy eating can be very flavorful if the food is prepared that way. The more your body ingests healthy food, the more it craves it. The Green Plate ensures very tasty meals while supplying your body with the nutrients it needs.
What does gluten-free mean?
A gluten-free diet does not include grains, barley, wheat, or rye. All of these grains and hybrids include a protein called gluten. People with Celiac (an autoimmune disease) need to follow a gluten-free diet. There are many alternatives to gluten and The Green Plate menu offers mainly gluten-free items.
