Rating: **** not too pricey, actually cheap
My dad had open heart surgery last week so I have been in the hospital a lot. I went to the cafeteria for dinner with my mom the second night and was looking forward to something healthy based on my mom and (vegetarian) sister’s recommendation. My choices included,
- fried meat,
- processed meat,
- processed cheese,
- more processed cheese with a little fruit,
- processed meat, cheese and bacon with some lettuce on the side labeled “salad”
- worst of all there was, what appeared to be a fruit dish, but not so, I picked it up to reveal stacks of processed meat and cheese hiding under the 10 grapes
I had already been crying, now I felt like crying more and screaming out loud (cover your children’s ears):
“you sasafrassin*^##^^!! Poo#&*!%* idiots, don’t you know this is why our loved ones are in here?!! How are our only choices so unhealthy?!”
Don’t worry, I didn’t say it out loud, only in my mind I sounded like a serious, crazy, activist.
My mom took one look at my face and suggested we leave the hospital for dinner. We found a little hole in the wall next to the smoke shop called
Mountain West Burrito (Angel’s singing here)
1796 N 950 W Provo Ut
It is a strange little hippy joint, that serves Tex-Mex.
Everything is organic, local, fresh.
I got the Grilled Veggie Burrito on a whole wheat tortilla, stuffed with organic brown rice, salsa, pinto beans, grilled summer squash (I am sure the veggies change with the seasons). $6
They even had vegan sour cream! My mom ordered a chicken and veggie burrito. Even their meat was organic and local. The burrito was HUGE, I couldn’t finish mine. I also got to try a weird health drink called kombucha, which kind of tasted like carbonated vinegar, but I liked it.
