Are you ever in the mood for food that will help make you feel healthy and good for the day? If your answer is yes, then I recommend going to The Green Ingredient. You can visit one of their two locations: Downtown El Paso in 2011 East Main St or 611 Dew Dr. inside of Push West Fitness.
The inspiration behind this restaurant and juice bar is definitely just another reason why you must go and enjoy some of their foods and drinks. The owner, Jacqueline Cordova, was studying computer science when her close friend passed away from breast cancer, the reason this is important is because her friend was allergic to the chemo's anesthesia. Cordova decided to do some research about patients with cancer, and she found that many patients got better when they engaged in a healthy diet.
"You can feed the disease or combat it."
This motivated Cordova to create a place where people could have access to top quality ingredients. She believes it's important to make you look inside out, not the other way around. Cordova wants to give everyone a place where they can trust someone to provide them with top quality products that will promote better diets. Jacqueline makes everything from scratch every day.
If you are interested in learning more about healthy eating you can join one of her classes downtown. These classes involve doctors and allergists that will work close with you to help you make healthier choices.
As a plus, you can now find some items at the local Whole Foods Market.
Remember: healthy eating is not a trend, but rather part of a solution.
