Nature’s Express: A Vegan Fast Food Restaurant

Restaurants with explicit vegan options, let alone a full vegan menu, are relatively rare. So it must have been a bit of a surprise when a fully vegan restaurant with a fast food oriented and relatively affordable menu opened in Yuma, Arizona, a small city in the south-western corner of the state. Now with two locations, Nature’s Express continues to provide plant-based and great-tasting food to visitors in order to provide alternatives to regular fast-food and help support healthier eating habits. This article explores the history of Nature’s Express, lists some of its must-try menu items, and provides a brief discussion on having a diet higher in plant-based food items.

 

History of Nature’s Express

Nature’s Express was started in Yuma, Arizona by Carl Myers, M.D, a former oncologist (physician specializing in cancer). While practicing oncology in Yuma and reading the ever-growing amount of research on the negative effects Americans’ diets can have on their health, Carl decided to take a completely different path and open up a vegan fast food restaurant. In 2009, Carl left oncology to focus on the restaurant full-time. The Nature’s Express team consists, in part, of co-owner Jean Myers, a nutritionist and Carl’s wife, as well as the Yuma location’s branch manager, Jarcey Rodriguez, who joined the Nature’s Express team after trying one of the restaurant’s chili cheeseburgers and who has since also lost 45 pounds. In early 2010, Nature’s Express opened another location in Berkeley, California.

 

Recommended Nature’s Express Menu Items

Exploring the Nature’s Express menu is fun for everyone, but those who eat a diet high in vegetarian and vegan food items will be particularly pleased with the varied menu and its great prices (especially compared to other vegan restaurants). Some recommended items include the South of the Border or Mushroom burger with cheese, the hearty Nachos Supreme, the Thai Peanut wrap, the Chik-un fingers, and the Soft Serve “ice cream”. Soon Nature’s Express will be providing the full nutritional information of their menu items online, which will be helpful for customers or potential customers to compare Nature’s Express food to the food of other fast-food restaurants.

 

Potential Benefits of a Diet With More Plant-Based Ingredients

Becoming vegetarian or vegan does not necessarily mean one will become healthier, but adding more plant-based food items to one’s diet, in addition to eating more organic whole foods and less processed foods, can put one on the right track to better nutrition and a more healthy lifestyle. Leading such a lifestyle may help decrease rates of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and autoimmune disorders. Therefore, while eating a 100% vegan diet may not always result in better health, places like Nature’s Express that offer delicious and plant-based food items provide a much healthier option to the typical fast-food restaurant. Nature’s Express provides a fast food model that will hopefully be emulated across the country.

Understanding the Type of Music For Bars and Pubs

Bars and Pubs

Music that you usually hear and music that you get to hear at bars and pubs are quite different for a long list of reasons. The songs that provide individual pleasure might not be the ones best suited for the atmosphere at bars and pubs. So to help you get this straight, we have come up with a brief take on the matter that tends to explore the type of music that is ideal for bars and pubs.

Low and Slow Restaurant Background Music

Slow background music is one that suits the mood when you have a few customers on a lazy weekday. They tend to be comforted with slow music, and it needs to be popular. Going for old numbers from John Denver and other such artists is another valuable tip that you need to follow. By doing so, your playlist will be complete, and the ambiance of the place will become to create an appeal. But once again, you cannot play this type of music all the time.

Turn Up the Heat

When it comes to weekends, the crowd at bars and pubs are usually in excitement, and they all want to make the most of their time before another week starts. For that purpose, you should make it worth their time by providing songs that turn up the heat and invite people to the party. From classic pop songs to the best of hip hop, you are always welcome to mix genres and provide people something unique. In case you want to take things to a whole new level, then rock and roll is another suitable option.

The Importance of a Country Music Playlist

If your establishment is a family-friendly place, then country music is not something you want to ignore. It sets the ambiance and helps everyone listen to some good old tunes as they sip their favourite drink. Due to that, a country music playlist is a requirement. But if you believe that such measures will not work for your place, then a playlist of the classics from the 80s and 90s will do the trick. While putting put such songs, make sure you follow a random order and keep surprising the crowd.

Music and Attention

Loud music is a requirement, but it is not something that always needs to be a part of the process. While it makes sense for Saturday nights, it does not provide justice for Monday nights. So control the volume as it decides the tone of attention that one will pay for the other features of your place. By keeping the volume at a minimum, you can expect people to focus on the specials you have rolled out.
