In-Store Burger Bars

Whole Foods Now Has a Vegan Healthy Food Bar in Colorado

— July 20, 2016 — Lifestyle
A Whole Foods Market in Boulder, Colorado now has a healthy food bar that gives people a taste of vegan milkshakes, Beyond Burger patties, as well as other meat substitutes like Gardein's Chick'n Tenders. Toppings that can be added at the burger station include a range of flavorful vegan options like Chao cheese, tartar sauce made from a base of Hampton Creek's Just Mayo.

When speaking of the new healthy food bar at this Whole Foods location, McKinzey Crossland said: "Whether vegans want to satisfy a craving for a serious burger, or whether carnivores are trying to lighten up their meal, we think this venue really appeals to everyone."

At this station, there are also a few all-day vegan breakfast options, including lemon pancakes, avocado tostadas and a sweet potato scramble.
