by Chloe: The Best Vegan Fast Food in Town
What’s even better is by Chloe makes all of its menu items—including the sauces—from scratch in-house, and the ingredients are organic and locally sourced whenever possible. The entire menu is not only 100 percent plant-based, but certified kosher, too. And you can enjoy your meal knowing that all of the food is free of saturated animal fat, cholesterol, artificial flavors, and preservatives.
While by Chloe chooses not to disclose their nutritional information for their menu in stores or online, we talked to Tracy Lockwood Beckerman,
RD and resident nutrition expert at Betches Media
, to find out the best choices to order. After all, a burger is a burger, and cookies still have sugar at the end of the day, even vegan ones.
“by Chloe is a place I would send my clients to eat a balanced, wholesome meal while providing their body with adequate nutrition,” Beckerman says. Even though Beckerman recommends by Chloe to many of her clients, not all of the options are exactly low in calories or carbs
, which you may want to keep in mind if you’re trying to lose weight.
Even so, filling up on all macronutrients and healthy fats is key to maintaining a healthy weight. “The meals, although may be calorically dense, are filled with clean, real healthy fats that keep us full and actually provides satiety to our taste buds and brains. By eating real foods, like avocado, nuts, and cashews, you will feel fuller longer and you will reap the heart-healthy benefits from these ingredients too,” Beckerman notes.
With that said, we rounded up the best entree, sandwich, burger, smoothie, drinks, and dessert to help you make the most health-conscious choices at the vegan outpost.
