Where healthy food is delicious
Among the abundance of dining establishments in and around the metropolitan hub of Silverdale in North Kitsap County, WA is the gem of a new business that offers a smorgasbord of culinary treats that are nutritious, imaginative and extremely tasty. Fuelrz Café, which uses only the finest of natural and organic ingredients, is a much needed and welcome addition to the food scene.
Fuelrz Café is the brainchild of owner and head chef, Marilyn (Misty) Eubanks, who has been involved in the health, nutrition and fitness industry for many years. She got her start as a chef at home, wanting to offset the barrage of unhealthy food temptations by adding more nutritious and healthy components to her family’s diet. Through experimentation, Misty recreated her family’s favorite food items, especially desserts, using organic, unrefined and heart healthy ingredients. The results were so good that her family did not realize their diet had changed for the better.
We all know how difficult it can be to find and get uprights and canines alike to eat food that is healthy, especially when so much can be less than flavorful. My uprights sneak carrots, peas and sweet potatoes into my food, and guess what? When they are mixed with pumpkin and chicken I devour them with zeal.
After changing her family’s diet and honing her skills, Misty began sharing her baked goods with friends, neighbors and fitness clients. As a personal trainer, she was aware that diet was a big part of the success and failure of many of her clients but became concerned when she began to notice an increase in the number who suffered from food allergies and diseases related to food. She began researching clients’ particular food issues and started creating items that accommodated each individual’s special needs. Overwhelming enthusiasm and gratitude resulted.
Misty’ s cottage industry grew too large for her home so she decided a year ago to expand and offer to a wider public the opportunity to find out firsthand the benefits that come from eating her delicious and heathy food. The word is out and Fuelrz Café is fueling an increasing number of bodies and minds.
Fuelrz Café specializes in gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan delights, but meat and poultry are NOT excluded. Everything is natural, sustainable and organic. “Oh, then it must be expensive” is the refrain often heard when those characteristics are mentioned, but the costs of Misty’s food and drinks are very competitive. If you think of the money you can save by getting and staying healthy, it is well worth the initial investment to see for yourself how eating better can change your life. You don’t have to suffer from celiac disease, diabetes or other food-associated illness to glean the benefits from eating at Fuelrz Café. Dine in or take out, Fuelrz Café makes it easy and affordable to add food and beverages you can trust to your and your family’s diet.
As well as bringing a great assortment of delicious muffins home, take a box of muffins or Fuelrz Café’s delicious bite-size protein poppers to your next business, club or association meeting as a special surprise and watch the reactions of satisfaction. With muffin flavors like Lemon, Banana Nut, Blueberry, Chocolate Almond, Peanut Butter with Chocolate frosting and Pineapple Coconut, how could you fail to impress? To make your purchase even more special, Fuelrz has several beautiful presentation boxes and ribbons to select from as well.
Lunch items at Fuelrz Café may include turkey and mushroom burgers, organic broccoli soup, hummus sandwiches and salad. The lunch menu changes daily as Fuelrz only uses fresh, local, seasonal and organic ingredients. Monday is always vegan lunch day. A large selection of coffee drinks and smoothies are also offered, and Fuelrz is constantly expanding its menu.
Outside seating lets you chill with your favorite four-footed companion while you enjoy the Fuelrz experience, and hey, if a crumb or two should end up our way, no problem with tasty food this heathy. For those of you who need to stay in touch with the pack, Fuelrz Café also has free Wi-Fi.
