Green and Tasty

Healthy Food Keeps on Truckin’


Where: Mobile. For locations, see greenandtasty.com or call 570-1354.

What: A mobile dining truck, targeting schools with “good food for good health”

How Much: À la carte entrees $1.95-$5.50

The Dish: Green and Tasty gives backpacks on wheels a whole new meaning in the school parking lot. Rolling onto campus is a mobile lunchbox with vibrant jalapeño graphics and healthy eats for students. Serving lunch at EF School at 1421 Chapala Street from noon-2 p.m. daily, the well-intentioned food truck also offers catering services for all types of events. The diverse menu is broken up between à la carte options and a general menu with balanced, green, and protein-packed dishes. An oozing Nutella crêpe can follow a colorful plate of mac and cheese with broccoli from the à la carte menu. On the general menu, you’ll find items from marinara pasta to a filling veggie enchilada casserole. Taking the kitchen to the streets, fans can follow special events throughout the city on Twitter @greenandtasty.
