Healthy New Year: Finding a Greener Space

3 Jan


So, let’s start this New Year off healthy. Joel Kahn, a Detroit cardiologist, opened up a Motown restaurant with his son Daniel. It’s GreenSpace Cafe  located in Ferndale, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Not only do you get to experience great food, you have the stamp of approval from a heart doctor.

The menu features some delicious vegan options like the teriyaki mushrooms (above) which are glazed with house-made bourbon teriyaki and garnished with Asian slaw, bib lettuce and chives.

Of course, there’s a Michigan salad with dried cherries and home-made cashew herb chevre. The root salad is another healthy choice.  A crowd pleaser is the pad thai, gluten free with rice noodles that can also be served nut free.

The unique feature is the raw juice bar complete with hard liquor. The number one selling drink is the Greenhouse made with gin, Drought #3  (apple, kale, lemon, celery & ginger), elderflower, orange and Cava.  A healthy cosmopolitan!

What are your healthy tips for starting off the New Year?
