Healthy Appetites can Enjoy Gluten-Free, Vegetarian Food Truck Alternatives
It can be frustrating trying to navigate the food truck scene with dietary restrictions when the cuisine du jour consists of tacos, hot dogs and fried bites. But for those seeking healthy, vegetarian or even vegan and gluten-free options, you're in luck. Dallas-based Greenhouse Truck offers local, seasonal choices based around lean proteins, fruits and veggies. Gluten-free options on the menu include soups like watermelon gazpacho or spiced pumpkin and leek. Popular rice bowls with brown rice, vegetables, Asian spices and your choice of miso flank steak, chicken or portobellos also make the gluten-free menu. With so many Americans affected by Celiac disease, a common gluten allergy, we are fortunate to have the likes of Greenhouse Truck offering balanced alternatives. The sweetest part about it all, besides their gluten-free sorbets is that there is no evidence of blase health food. Expect bright, substantial dishes abundant in flavor and all at an affordable and guilt-free price.
In the coming weeks, Greenhouse Truck will be joined by Good Karma Kitchen, a moveable feast of vegetarian and gluten-free gourmet; We'll keep Big D Food Truck fans posted on their happenings!
