Healthy Hot Spot: Dig Inn Seasonal Market

by Marissa on March 29, 2012

When I worked in an office, I longed for healthy lunch options. Believe it or not, I eventually even swore off  deli salads because of the lack of organic produce available and the negative energy of the guys who slapped them together at warp speed behind the counter.

(Hint: Think about the energy in the environment where your food is made and where you eat it. It may sound silly, but the truth is it can effect the quality of your digestion. )

Dig Inn is the answer to any office worker’s prayer for a wholesome, healthy lunch served up in a clean, friendly environment. Formerly called The Pump Energy Food, Dig Inn is part country kitchen and part rustic farm house reminiscent of the local farms from which the food is sourced.

With the name change came a tastier, more simplified menu and a seasonal approach to healthy food.

On the menu are fresh, seasonal vegetables, raw green juices, whole grains and humanely-raised, hormone-and antibiotic-free protein.

I stopped by for lunch on-the-go after a meeting in the Financial District. Though the food isn’t kept as warm as I would have liked, it tasted fresh and homemade.

What I Ate: The small veggie plate with pinto beans, spinach, spaghetti squash and roasted Brussels sprouts.

When I Dined: Lunch, Wednesday

Also On the Healthier Side: You can’t go wrong with this menu. Everything is nutritionally dense, just keep it balanced.

Be In the Know: There are five Manhattan locations and online ordering is available. They also post nutrition and allergen information.

With the weather heating up, I’ve been eating plenty of salads these days, and I’ll be the first to admit it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with these leafy green meals in a bowl. They can seem boring at times. But that just wasn’t the case with the salad I made today. What […]

Having been a vegetarian for almost 20 years, I’ve had my share of veggie burgers. I used to rely religiously on the soy-based Morning Star Farms or Boca Burgers, especially for quick brown bag lunches that I bring to work. That was then. The basis of any diet, especially a special diet, should be whole […]

Never Underestimate a Sardine

One food I am loving right now is sardines. There. I can’t believe I said it. You wouldn’t believe the disgusted looks I get when I admit this. But if you have never considered adding sardines to your diet, you should. Sardines are named for Sardinia, an Italian island where large schools of the fish […]
