If your New Year's resolution includes eating healthier and/or spending less time cooking and cleaning, then Snap Kitchen will be your best friend. With several locations scattered around Austin, Snap Kitchen is a grab and go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between. Snap uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create balanced nutritious meals for everyone in your family. I popped in recently to grab lunch to eat at home and I was impressed with the menu selection. Everything is in a refrigerator categorized by breakfast, lunch, dinner, sides, salads, and desserts. The containers are BPA free, microwave safe and color coded orange for small (200-250 calories), green for medium (300-350 calories), and black for large (approximately 500 calories). The label lists all ingredients used and has icons if it is gluten free, dairy free, carbohydrate conscious, paleo, or plant powered. They boast that the menu is 99% gluten free. The menu is so full of flavorful choices that you might take a while to decide what you want. They also have cold pressed juices ready to go. There is a microwave there if you are truly grabbing and eating while mobile. I chose a small Chicken Tikka Masala--it was very filling, flavorful and the chicken was perfectly moist. I was so impressed even before tasting the food that I signed up for the Snap Kitchen rewards program. Although they do not have a drive through (yet), they offer curbside service. If you have little ones in tow or just can't get out of your car, call ahead or order online. If you are attending the MLK Day March today or participating in a day of service, Snap can help with a quick meal on the go. I am thrilled that this establishment is local and in my neighborhood. I look forward to my next visit very soon. (Gina)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
