Review: Healthy and Incredible Eats At Green Bar & Kitchen

I recently went to Green Bar & Kitchen for the first time to meet up with a group of health coaches who also attended Integrative Nutrition. We enjoyed some amazing eats and discussed positive ways to help others through clean eating and healthy living.

Here we are with GBK co-owner and fellow health coach, Elena Pezzo. Feeling happy and healthy after eating delicious and healthy food.

Green Bar & Kitchen is one of those places you go to eat amazing food that is good for you. With dishes like the GBK burger, GBK bowls, avocado toast (life changing avocado toast!), coconut thai soup, bountiful salads and house-made desserts. Check them out for plant based foods that won’t leave you missing beef or chicken. Everything is super satisfying and made with love.

Elena gifted the table with avocado toast, a serving has 4 pieces. It was awesome(!!) made with Sami’s Bakery gluten free millet flax bread (my favorite GF bread of all time!) and topped with fresh avocado slices, sprouts and a heavenly sauce. I wanted this all to myself! This is a starter you must get when you go!

For lunch I ordered the hummus wrap, filled with fresh ingredients that make your belly happy. Wraps are made with Sami’s Bakery soft gluten free wraps filled with hummus, avocado, fresh veggies or get the one with roasted veggies that is equally delicious.

The interior is welcoming and bright, super clean and energizing. Their food philosophy is based on clean plant based eating, utilizing gluten free grains, nuts/seeds, fresh produce to create vibrant salads, soups, veggies and grain bowls, tasty dips, sandwiches, smoothies, freshly made cold-pressed juices, raw and gluten free desserts. Eat here and you will feel the difference. Many times when dining out, a meal will leave you feeling tired, bloated, run down and in need of a coffee pick-me-up. When you dine at GBK, you have an extra bounce in your step from eating healthy foods that make you thrive. The service there is super helpful and friendly as well!

The co-owner is Elena Pezzo, she is a certified Health Coach and attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where she learned that the foods you eat can change your whole life! Read the eat to live page on GBK’s website: and her powerful story about her brother, Anthony making a recovery from a stroke with the help of prayers and Elena using her knowledge of super foods to help him gain back his life. Watch the incredibly moving video:

If you have not been, do your body and mind a favor and go now. GBK is healthy food that tastes incredible and is made with love. Walk through the doors of GBK and you immediately feel the positive energy and life this type of food gives. Your perspective on clean eating will change for good!
