My friends and I are a bit into ~healthy food. We're avid smoothie drinkers and love a good salad but we like to eat out. A lot. We're kind of the opposite of the typical student. We love pizza and Supermacs but always live a night of regret afterwards. The post fast food remorse. But then my friend Ellie found Mixgreens tucked in the back of the Athlone Town Centre during the summer and now it's our new favourite place.
Mixgreens pride themselves as being a healthy alternative to fast food. They're food is cooked fast but not in the same way as McDonalds or Burger King. It's all fresh ingredients and they cater to most dietary requirements.
The vast majority of the menu is vegetarian which if you're like me (a meat hater) is fab. They also have a small paleo section too which i've never seen a restaurant doing before and a juice bar. The spinach juice I got last week was so delicious I had to resist buying one (five) more.
I really do recommend you try out Mixgreens if there is one near you. I know Galway has one or two and Limerick. They seem to be slowly popping up everywhere.
