Hard to Beat Vegan Food

Wednesday, August 4th, 2021

As you walk around the NYU campus, there are restaurants as far as you could see. For students with dietary issues, there are many restaurants supporting those needs. One of my favorite restaurants that every student should go to no matter if they have dietary restrictions is Le Botaniste. This restaurant is located in Soho, Midtown, and the Upper East Side. I recently discovered this plant-based restaurant. They have hot and cold bowls that are already made, and the best thing is that you could also make your own choice of a bowl with a wealth of ingredients to choose from. My main point regarding this restaurant is that they have endless protein options which are very important when you do not consume meat or even fish.

They have options ranging from breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and even wine. If it is your first time going here are my ratings. You should definitely get the Red Fruit Chia pudding. Chia seeds are full of important nutrients that our body needs. They are full of antioxidants and fiber, along with many other nutrients. Eating them does not only make you feel good, but it also is very good for your health as well. This is the perfect and refreshing meal or breakfast, a snack, or even for dessert. When you scoop it up the consistency is thick and light leaving a coconut, nutty, and fruity flavor left in your mouth. It leaves your taste buds feeling happy and refreshed. The punches of fruit as you eat your way through the jar give punches of berry goodness. I rate this one 9/10.

My second and bar far favorite choice for lunch or dinner is their Botanical Salad. A lot of Le Botaniste’s ingredients are vegetables that support your gut health. Their Botanical Salad contains salad mix, quinoa, avocado, root vegetables, Tumeric onion, red sauerkraut, and pea shoots. What is spectacular about this meal is that it contains forms of vegetables, proteins, and fats. My favorite ingredient in this salad has to be the red sauerkraut. I am a sucker for anything that helps improve gut health and digestion, and that is exactly what the sauerkraut does because it is filled with probiotics. This salad is not only filled with multiple nutrients to nourish your body and vibrant colors, but it is fresh, raw, and will keep you feeling energized for the rest of your day. The best aspect of this meal is if you want to add extras they have many other side dishes, beet meatballs, steamed greens, pea shoots, tofu, etc. The options are endless. This one gets a 10/10 rating from me because you can get it how it is, or customize it to fit what you want!!! Definitely check this one out.

Anyone and everyone should definitely check this spot out. You can eat in or get delivery. This restaurant is the freshest and healthiest spot if you wanna support your gut health. None of the options have ever been bad, everything has always tasted amazing leaving me feeling satisfied and good. The location in Soho is the best option for NYU students. It is only a walking distance away, and trust me it is worth the walk. Take a break from your meal plan, or the NYU cafe’s and take a leap of faith and try Le Botaniste.
