Bold and original creations, you can feel good about
We have a lot of fun blending recipes from around the world to come up with our unique Fresh Fusion Cuisine. But we also care about healthy eating. The U.S. Deptartment of Health and Human Services (HSS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommend that you eat a variety of foods to get the energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber that you need for good health. They tell us that we should balance the food we eat with physical activity to maintain or improve our weight. While Fresh City can't help you find the time or the inclination for athletics, we can offer you the meals and snacks you need to keep going strong throughout your day or after a full dayâ€™s work or a hard workout. At Fresh City, youâ€™ll find variety, fresh foods full of nutrients and compelling flavors that will keep you coming back.
Naturally-raised meat, poultry and seafood (as well as a menu full of vegetarian selections)
If you choose to eat meat, Fresh City is the place to do it. We serve naturally-raised meat, poultry and seafood free from preservatives, antibiotics, growth hormones and animal by-products.
While the USDA is still developing certification standards for â€śnaturally-raised,â€ť it does distinguish between â€śnaturalâ€ť and â€śnaturally-raisedâ€ť â€” they donâ€™t mean the same thing. According to USDA guidelines, â€śnaturalâ€ť beef, poultry, pork, fish, etc. means, â€śDuring processing, nothing synthetic is ever added to the meat, including preservatives, and the product is only minimally processed.â€ť The â€śnaturalâ€ť guidelines do not prohibit use of antibiotics, growth hormones or animal byproducts during the raising or any other preprocessing stages of production. The â€śnaturally-raisedâ€ť guidelines prohibit antibiotics, added growth hormones or animal byproducts. If the animal requires antibiotics to overcome illness, it is supposed to be separated from the â€śnaturally-raisedâ€ť herd, flock or school. Animals that nurse, if â€śnaturally-raised,â€ť are allowed to do so, naturally gaining antibodies from their mothers. It takes longer for â€śnaturally-raisedâ€ť animals to reach the required weight for slaughter, so â€śnaturally-raisedâ€ť also means higher cost. But we think youâ€™re worth it!
As many as 10 percent of American adults consider themselves vegetarians, even though they may eat fish or poultry occasionally. The vegetarian lifestyle is on the rise, particularly among young adults. Is it true vegetarians have more fun? At Fresh City, itâ€™s fun to find outâ€¦ Our vegetarian choices are so tasty that many non-vegetarians choose our meatless selections including Stir Fry, Salads, Burritos, Sandwiches and Soups.
Hand-picked produce, cut fresh daily
Our produce is hand-picked, to ensure that we serve you the very best vegetables and fruits we can find â€” locally-grown, whenever possible. Locally grown produce is better because it doesnâ€™t have to travel so far â€” that means it neednâ€™t be removed from the plant prematurely, before itâ€™s ripe, in order to survive shipping. If produce is picked prior to peak ripeness, it doesnâ€™t have time to complete its natural cycle, so many of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals donâ€™t have time to fully develop. Produce harvested when ripe must be served as soon as possible â€” itâ€™s simply got to be fresh!
Organic ingredients wherever possible
So far, no one can back up the claim that organic foods taste better, but advocates tell us that organic agriculture is better for both the food it produces and the ecosystem at large. Studies suggest that organically-farmed produce contains up to 40 percent more antioxidants such as vitamin C and higher levels of minerals than its conventionally-farmed counterparts. By eliminating unnatural herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, organic farming practices not only reduce our exposure to these chemical additives through our foods but also keep them from polluting lakes, ponds, rivers and groundwater.
