HAVING a big bowl of salad is one way to eat a variety of different coloured fresh vegetables and fruits at one go.
While we may be aware of the benefits of a daily diet rich in vegetables and fruits, we cannot possibly have salad, every day.
But at Goodness Greens Cafe, diners can have their servings of a variety of vegetables and fruits, and not necessarily as salad.
The menu has been designed in such a way that patrons can choose the type of vegetables and fruits and their preferred method of cooking them – grilled, toasted, roasted or simply fresh.
Spices are also added to enhance the taste without compromising on its main selling point – healthy eating.
In fact, first-timers here may have to spend a bit of time to figure out how to order their food.
There are also many items to choose from.
This was what my colleague Adrian and I discovered when we had lunch at the cafe, recently.
Heading straight to the cafe after a four-hour journey from Johor, we wanted to have a quick bite.
We just picked the items at random without much thought and were glad that the combination had turned out well.
Each item came in very small portions but the 11 items on our respective plates were more than enough for someone with a big appetite.
Of the 11 items, five were vegetables and fruits, and the rest were either meat, fish, eggs and dressing.
For drinks, Adrian opted for chocolate almond milk while I had almond milk.
The drinks are from the range of La Juiceria fresh juices.
Besides healthy eating, the eatery is certainly a good place to introduce the many different types of vegetables and fruits to small children.
The children are likely to find it fun to choose what is on their plate and also the way of cooking them.
