Now that summer's officially here, there's no need to sweat fitting in your itsy bitsy bikini because The Green Truck serves up healthy organic food, grass-fed meats, whole grains, and vegan too.
- zesty, fresh 'n tangy, tummy & body lovin' Chicken Burrito with Quinoa, Black Beans, Sharp Cheddar, Pico de Gallo & a touch of Sour Cream all in a Spinach Tortilla ($8)
I've been trying to track down the Green Truck FOREVER! Seems like ever since Coachella they've been catering a lot of private events, or just not makin' their way out to the Miracle Mile. So when I spotted them after a much-needed yoga class from the best instructor ever, Erin Kirk, I felt like the planets had finally aligned for me.
After chatting up the menu with the server, my ears perked up as soon as I heard that quinoa was in their Chicken Burrito. If you haven't heard of this ancient Aztec whole grain – the only one being a complete protein packed with all the essential amino acids our body can't produce on their own – then you're seriously WAY out of the loop because it's been blowin' up all over magazines & TV this past year. It looks like a cuter version of cous cous, complete with fashionable belt – see the spiral ring around the grain in picture – and tastes nuttier, too.
Let's get back to the Burrito. It wasn't too big or small in size, but just right. I actually ate the whole healthy thing to myself – ok my hand model had to steal a couple big bites. The Spinach Tortilla is moist and grubworthy. The Chicken is grilled, tender, and seasoned with Mexican spices. The Black Beans are wholesome. The Pico de Gallo is light and fresh. The Cheddar is sharp to pack in some punch! And the Quinoa – a healthier rice substitute – really pops in your mouth. I will definitely be returning for this!
The Green Truck also serves Vegan Burgers ($8), Grass-fed Beef Hot Dogs ($5), Grass-Feed Niman Ranch Burgers ($9), Falafel Wraps ($8), Garlic Rosemary Fries ($3), Homemade Lemonade ($3), and more. They also have compostable forks & knives (the same kind as Whole Foods.)
