When I travel for work, I tend to stay at the same hotels, and end up at the same places for food. I was so excited to discover The Green Cat right by my hotel while staying in Virginia Beach last year. I mean, there’s cat in the name, so obviously I had to go check it out.
They specialize in organic, plant based, gluten free, and mostly raw foods. I know my food restrictions are a bit onerous/annoying/high maintenance, so I really appreciated being able to eat pretty much anything on the menu.
The menu includes cold-pressed juices, smoothies, smoothie bowls, salads, soup, oatmeal, and snacks.
The kale pesto salad gets two thumbs up.
I can also attest to the smoothies and smoothie bowls being delicious, too!
On my most recent trip, I needed a snack in a pinch and discovered a lavender protein bar. It knocked my socks off and I have set out to recreate it. Stay tuned for the recipe, it’s a good one!
