The Galley Cafe will be using fresh produce daily from Lancaster Farm Fresh

We’re getting close to The Galley Cafe opening date at Vincera Institute in the The Navy Yard!

So excited to place my first produce order with Lancaster Farm Fresh… locally rooted, sustainably minded.

ImageWhat is not to love about organic, local and seasonal produce delivered daily? It’s important to support local and be as active as you can in the sustainable food movement!  Foods that are grown with chemicals and pesticides adversely affect your health, causing toxin build up, hormonal imbalance, brain and nerve cell damage, cancer, and infertility. Not to mention organic fruits and veggies taste better and are found to have a higher content of vitamins and minerals than those filled with harmful pesticides and/or genetically modified.

So eat up the good stuff and join your local CSA today or check out farmers markets and natural health stores in your area. To get information on your local CSA, farmers markets, or sustainably grown food in your area click here.

farmers market quinoa salad

 

Image

Ingredients: Red and white quinoa, kale, spring peas, zucchini, apples, scallions, toasted almonds, avocado,  and sunflower seeds.

This is one of my favorite summer quinoa salads. Made fresh with local farmers market veggies and full of fresh herbs, tossed in a light lemon-basil vinaigrette. It’s also vegan and gluten free.  

Light, but filling, this nutrient-dense salad will keep you energized and full throughout the day, without weighing you down. It’s a perfect lunch and will add to your daily dose of fiber, protein, omega 3’s, antioxidants and B vitamins… and much more!   

The Farmers Market Quinoa Salad is on the summer menu at the Galley Cafe,  come and get it!  

The Galley cafe is located in the Vincera Institute at 1200 Constitution Ave, Philadelphia.

 Opening soon!
