What is Nutritious You: Nutritious You is a new product line of healthy snacks created by AADP certified health coach, Marina Sommers. Marina’s original production goal was to fill a void in local food market offerings by creating a snack that was both healthy and tasty to her children. Today, the mission of the Nutritious You team has evolved to provide nutrient-packed snacks to health-conscious consumers across the nation.
A locally owned taco shop featuring organic tempeh, vegetarian black beans and local craft brews along side organic produce and humanely raised meat. They definitely have vegan options, but you might need to tell them to hold the cheese.
A locally owned taco joint featuring organic tempeh, vegetarian beans and many other organic and local ingredients. This Bradenton location is new, but I can't wait to visit.

They advertise fine American cuisine in a nice atmosphere. They have one vegan and gluten free option a Grilled Cauliflower Steak with Roasted Asparagus, Hummus, Tabbouleh Salad and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce. Even though they were quite busy, our waitress confirmed what was vegan and was quite helpful. They also advertise that they use many local suppliers. FYI: the portabello burger is NOT vegan.
This new breakfast and lunch cafe in North Sarasota offers several vegan options. They are new and things are changing, so let's support them and make vegan a long term part of their menu. Please be kind and supportive as well as aware that they are fairly new so you may want to ask how things are cooked, etc. Your editor has not been there in person, but knows some folks that have been there.
