Hey Weight Loss Nation!
It’s Tampa Bay Tuesday!
That’s right! I have an awesome, Healthy place for you to check out if you live in the Tampa Bay area.
Today…..I am reviewing “Tasty Roots”
“Tasty Roots” is a small brick n mortar store, located on beautiful “Davis Island” in Tampa.
Standing among the beautiful shops and restaurants in the “down town” section of Davis Island….. stands “Tasty Roots.”
I walked in and standing at the register is a sweet, young lady, who immediately says “Hi” to me and she smiles.
I LOVE when people smile at me. Don’t you love that! It immediately makes you smile right back at that person. You automatically feel better when you smile!
I was introduced to this wonderful woman, by my friend Sarah, and this woman turns out to be the owner of “Tasty Roots” Her name is Kirstin Coolman.
I start speaking with Kirstin and I tell her all about Weight Loss Nation…… and my long-term healthy lifestyle.
Kirstin tells me that she is also living a long-term healthy lifestyle and she tells me how she “Loves” to “create” her healthy meals…….every day!..... for the people on Davis Island.
I love that. FRESH meals made daily!!
I walk over to the refrigerators and there are a lot of choices!
“Tasty Roots” has meal choices with meat…. Or… without meat.
Tasty Roots has meals with Chicken…. Beef…. Salmon… tuna and turkey.
For Veggies….Tasty Roots has a HUGE variety…..they use..
Beets, Bell Pepper, Broccoli, Brussels Sprout, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Collard Greens, Green Beans,Mushrooms, Onions, Peas, Spinach, Tomatoes and Zucchini.
Tasty Roots offers a variety….of healthy pre-made meals ….that cater to many different Meal Plans…..
including traditional ….. gluten-free, paleo, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian (which I had no idea what that was until Kirstin told me it is a person who doesn’t eat meat, except for Fish.)
“Tasty Roots” offer custom meal plans, snacks, teas, cold brew coffee, fresh produce……raw and vegan desserts…..,and…..
All the ingredients that Tasty Roots use…. are
ORGANIC and NONGMO!
“Tasty Roots” …….IS…….an Organic Grab N' Go Cafe. That’s the best way for me to describe it. All their meals are made with ingredients that are organic & Non- GMO, sourced from local farms…..AND…..the meals are made from SCRATCH! Just like your mom or Grandmother would make.
I looked over the meals in the refrigerator and picked out Three pre-made meals.
I picked out Turkey….with Green Beans & Sweet Potato, because I LOVE Sweet Potatoes and I never make Turkey….which…..I also Love!
I picked out Grilled Eggplant in an almond crust with quinoa…because….I friggin LOVE Eggplant….which I NEVER Cook….because I SUCK at Cooking…..AND….I LOVE Quinoa!
And I picked out a quart of Bone Broth. Why? Because I’ve been hearing & reading all about “Bone Broth” and I want to taste what it’s all about!
The meals have a “use by date” written directly on the label, to ensure great taste and food safety, since they don’t use and “preservatives.”
The portion is made as “one serving” which comes in a plastic container. Looks a little “skimpy” to me……since I eat like a friggin “Football Player.” We’ll see if that fills me up. It would probably fill up 99% of the people who eat that meal…….I just happen to be the 1%, who has a “portion control” issue right now!
OK….we’ll see. My EYES are getting the best of me right now.
Anyway….The prices are a bit high……which I expected…..due to the meals being pre-made and Organic.
Meals with “meat” range from $10.75 up to $14.50 for the Salmon.
Vegetarian meals range from $9 to $10.75
The Turkey meal I picked out was $12.75 & the Eggplant meal was $9.00.
The Quart of Bone Broth was $19.00. I could have bought the “chicken broth” at $8.00 a quart.. but I really wanted to taste the “Bone Broth.”
The place is very, very clean. Even the glass on the refrigerator doors are clean!
Very impressed with how clean and organized “Tasty Roots” is.
I bought the Bone Broth Frozen…..so it kept my other 2 meals nice n cold for the trip home.
I’m going to eat these meals and let you know on “Concoction Friday” if I liked them or NOT.
Kristin is very helpful and will answer ANY questions you have about her daily made meals as well as her knowledgeable staff.
