Food For Thought
154 Seventh Street
Garden City, NY 11530
Food for Thought is a health food store in the heart of Garden City that prepares fresh hot dishes, soups, salads and juices. It is one of my go-to lunch places. I try to get there once a week, usually on Friday afternoons when I am feeling sluggish and beat up from the week. Without fail I leave there feeling rejuvenated and ready for the weekend. There is nothing like eating a healthy meal that tastes delicious and was prepared with fresh, organic ingredients. The menu items were created by a holistic chef and they are delicious!
Food for Thought isn’t a place you go to dine in with friends. They only have a few tables, but the feel is homey and is definitely a neighborhood hot spot. Many people just pop in to get a fresh fruit smoothie made from their enormous juicer. Others get food to go. Last week I had the most unbelievable Creamy Green soup made sans cream and sans dairy. The woman behind the counter let me taste it before I decided to order. It contained brown rice, split peas, and carrots – so delicious! One of my other all time favs is the raw Kale Slaw made with lemon and mustard. It is super refreshing and has a pleasant mouth feel. On days When I need a more substantial lunch I go for the Tuna and Quinoa salad which is chock full of filling fiber and protein. You really can’t go wrong when it comes to ordering.
Besides wholesome food, they also sell specialty items like gluten free breads, an array of protein powders, and supplements from reliable brands like Carlson, Nature’s Path and Nordic Naturals. If you’re ever in the area, I definitely recommend you check it out.
