The Green Window: Your Sign to Get a Boujee Salad
By: Sarena Akhter
Hello Foodies, If you needed a sign to start eating healthy, this blog post is going to be that nudge in the right direction. With boujee salads and tasty greens that we can't get enough of, our appreciation sponsor post for today is for The Green Window. The Green Window is a salad shop designed for helping its customers receive delicious, healthy meals even in a hurry. Their unique salad bowls and vegan and gluten-friendly desserts are exactly what we need more of in our community. Not sold just yet? We got you covered—with our own experience to hopefully sway your minds.
The Green Window
The Green Window was created by Western Alumni, Emily Cuddy, who thought of creating healthy fast food on the go after realizing how difficult it can be to find ready-made nutrious alternatives. During her third year, Cuddy became really interested in health and fuelling her body with quality foods. She specifically speaks about how she had changed her mother's diet to include only fresh, natural ingredients when her mother had been diagnosed with cancer. After watching how drastically her health changed, Cuddy began to follow the same diet principles and hasn't looked back since.
Soon after completing university and working at her corporate job, Cuddy soon realized how impossible it was to create healthy, fresh salads while on the go... and as a result, decided to create an establishment like that herself!
"As a Western Alumni, I understand how busy and stressful life can get, so it's important to have quick meal options available—as most fast food options are overly processed, [The Green Window] offers students quick and healthy options on the go!" said Cuddy.
The Bandera Bowl
One of the most popular bowls among students, the Bandera Bowl is an absolute must to get when you drop by The Green Window. This bowl includes grilled chicken, romaine, brown rice, black bean corn salsa (includes cilantro), red onions, tomatoes, mixed cheese, tortilla chips, and lime-cilantro dressing. It's both colorful and filling!
These gluten-free and vegan brownie bites have the same consistency as a regular brownie—soft, fudgy, and chewy! If you're hoping to get a treat in for your long day with your salad, we recommend pairing one of their plenty of dessert bites on your order.
